via Top Dem says Obama shares responsibility for Russia’s meddling – AOL News

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration’s muted response to the 2014 Sony hack may have laid the groundwork for Russia’s meddling in the 2016 elections, a top Democrat argued Friday.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said the previous administration should have established a “more forceful deterrent” against potential adversaries considering cyber attacks against the U.S. or its institutions.

In late 2014 Sony Pictures confirmed it had been the victim of a “brazen cyber attack” that led to the personal data of current and former employees and their families being exposed.
