Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, June 16, 2019

President Donald Trump on Saturday accused The New York Times of a "virtual act of treason" for publishing a story about American digital incursions into Russia's electrical power grid as a strategy to battle cyber warfare. Then he tweeted that the story wasn't true. Intelligence officials hadn't thoroughly briefed Trump on actions against Russia because they indicated it could get back to the Kremlin, according to sources. The newspaper described "broad hesitation to go into detail" with Trump about operations against Russia "for concern over his reaction -- and the possibility that he might countermand it or discuss it with foreign officials."
