President Trump lashed out at The New York Times after it published a piece Saturday saying the U.S. is ramping up cyber intrusions into Russia’s electric power grid. Trump tweeted the Times report is a “virtual act of treason.” The report asserts that the U.S. is deploying new cyber tools in a warning to Russian President Vladimir Putin over interference in U.S. elections. The report also said that military and intelligence officials have avoided sharing the full details of such operations with Trump in case he countermands them or discloses the information with foreign officials.
