Trump adviser: Russia not paying a high enough price for election interference


Thomas Bossert, President Trump’s homeland security adviser, said Thursday that Russia is “not paying enough” for its hacking during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“They are right now not paying enough. They’re not paying anything,” Bossert said during an Aspen Institute discussion in Aspen, Colo., according to Politico’s Eric Geller.

Bossert also reportedly said Trump had pushed Putin “pretty directly” on international cybersecurity standards when the leaders met at the G-20 conference in July and advocated for a “multilateral, international obligation.”

Bossert said the U.S. is developing bilateral agreements on cybersecurity standards independently, according to Geller, without the aid of groups like the United Nations.

” ‘We will end up, hopefully, with a multilateral group of likeminded people’ that have all inked cyber agreements with the U.S.,” he reportedly said.
