US Attacks Russia’s Power Grid; Trump Kept in Dark

The United States is stepping up digital incursions into Russia's electric power grid in a warning to President Vladimir Putin and a demonstration of how the Trump administration is using new authorities to deploy cybertools more aggressively, current and former government officials said.

The article says that the administration declined to describe the specific actions it was taking under the new powers that were granted previous year by the White House and Congress to the special US Cyber Command, the arm of the Pentagon that specialises in the military's offensive and defensive cyber operations.

"A poll should be done on which is the more dishonest and deceitful newspaper, the Failing New York Times or the Amazon (lobbyist) Washington Post!".

In a pair of tweets sent Saturday night, Trump asserted the story wasn't true and denounced reporters as "cowards".

Ujiri made a second, more significant shove and during that shove his arm struck our deputy in the side of the head", Kelly said. The Alameda County District Attorney's Office said it expected to look into the matter sometime next week.

"The New York Times story had cited current and former officials who claimed the US had been running a campaign to deter future cyber activities by inserting code into Moscow's utility systems". "You do, or write whatever, without the slightest thought to the consequences!", Trump wrote.

The Times reported that the United States has increased measures to penetrate Russia's power grid as a message to Moscow to stay out of American cyber infrastructure. Trump branded it "not true" and "a virtual act of Treason", also repeating his signature rant and calling the paper "the enemy of the people". Assertions made by the New York Times that US special services became much more active during the a year ago in attempts to introduce malware into the Russian energy system run contrary to facts, US President Donald Trump said. Still, intelligence officials and the Pentagon appear to be actively avoiding Trump in certain cases of cyber operations, according to the NYT and their anonymous sources. The decision to put "implants" into the Russian electric grid was snuck into a part of this bill and allows for specific actions to be taken by the defense secretary without prior approval from Trump, NYT reported.

US President Donald Trump refuted reports of The New York Times newspaper about the increased number of US cyberattacks on Russia, Trend reports citing Sputnik. Trump continued to say. "They are both a disgrace to our Country, the Enemy of the People, but I just can't seem to figure out which is worse?"
