Russia taunts U.S. on Twitter after White House announces punishment for cyberattacksRussian government entities took to Twitter on Thursday and Friday to mock the U.S. after President Obama announced sanctions and other punishments in retaliation for the Kremlin’s interference in U.S. elections. President Obama and the U.S. intelligence community have accused Russia of spearheading the cyberattacks that leaked troves of emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman. In addition to the sanctions, the White House said it would expel from the U.S. 35 Russians whom it characterized as intelligence operatives, and the State Department said it would close two properties it said were used for the Kremlin’s intelligence operation.
