    Interesting, so among them were two actual Russians wanted for cyber attacks, however Obama did not move to arrest them. Because this is a political move, NOT caring about the country in arresting actual real perpetrators of any cyber attacks. Why send them back to the motherland???? Because Obama is one of them…..
