DICK CHENEY: 'No question' Russia meddled in the US election, and could be 'an act of war'
Cheney cited a "rising number of threats" in the world that beyond national security, "even pose a threat to the globalization movements you're here to talk about today."Then directly segueing into talking about Russian President Vladimir Putin, Cheney warned of Russia's aggressive actions. "I think he has designs on the Baltics ... We know he wanted Crimea, he took it," said Cheney, who pointed to previous Russian cyber campaigns against Baltic states and their recent moves to nuclearize their European enclave of Kaliningrad.
"There's no question that there was a very serious effort made by Mr. Putin and his government, his organization, to interfere in major ways with our basic fundamental democratic processes," said Cheney. "In some quarters that could be considered an act of war.""I would not underestimate the weight that we as Americans assign to Russian attempts to interfere with our process," said Cheney, finishing the thought.
