The final decision on new economic restrictions against Moscow was still pending. For the imposition of sanctions the administration of President Barack Obama will officially accuse Moscow and supported the hackers” hacking into the email of the Democrats, reports The Wall Street Journal.

USA prefer not to disclose the names of those who was behind the cyberattacks, the newspaper notes, that did not prevent Washington in 2014 to openly accuse the DPRK of hacking into the networks of Sony Pictures Entertainment. In addition, last year Obama issued an Executive order simplifying the procedure for the imposition of sanctions against those who engage in or facilitates the cyber attacks on the US, said the TV channel “Rain”.

Recall that the secret correspondence, which was then published by the website WikiLeaks, showed that the party apparatus openly supported Hillary Clinton against her rival, democratic Senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders. The New York Times wrote that the leak of documents may be involved in the Russian special services.

On Thursday, the leader of the minority in the U.S. House of representatives, Democrat Nancy Pelosi has called the hacking of the computers of the Democratic party “electronic Watergate”, saying: “I know Russian”.

In the pre-election staff of the candidate in US presidents from Democrats Hillary Clinton said earlier that the leaked documents are “the Russians to help Donald Trump” — the main rival Clinton, the candidate of the Republican party.

In the Kremlin these accusations were absurd. Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said that the Russian official agencies “have never engaged in cyber terrorism”. In turn, Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov could not find acceptable words to respond to these attacks.
