The Obama administration on Tuesday indicated it was considering a proportional response to retaliate against Russia for its efforts to influence the U.S. election process. The administration last week officially linked Russian operatives to a series of cyberattacks against the DNC and other organizations, apparently in an effort to influence the November presidential race. White House press secretary Josh Earnest confirmed that leaks to WikiLeaks, DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0 were “consistent with methods and motivations of Russian efforts.”
