The White House announced today it will impose new sanctions on Russian intelligence agencies and kick 35 Russian operatives out of the United States.

This is in retaliation for what U.S. intelligence agencies say were cyberattacks aimed at interfering in the presidential election.

Lizzie O’Leary spoke with Nick Wadhams, who covered the story for Bloomberg News.
