>> welcome to "cbs this morning" i'm josh elliott with reasonen ninan and vladimir duthiers. as you wake up in the west russia is threatening to retaliate for new sanctions imposed by president obama in something of a parting shot at moscow. president vladimir putin said russia will not respond by expelling american diplomats. putin says in a statement, i quote, we will not resort to irresponsible kitchen diplomacy, end quote. >> u.s. believes russia launched cyber attacks to influence the presidential election. in response the state department ordered 35 officials to leave the u.s., closed two russian compounds and sanctioned two of russia's top intelligence agencies. jeff pegues is outside the russian embassy in washington, one of the targets of the u.s. action. jeff, good morning.
7:04 am
>> good morning, some of the russian officials ordered to leave the country worked in the embassy behind me on thursday they were given 72 hours to leave after the obama administration retaliated for what it says was widespread russian cyber attacks. the clock is ticking for 35 government officials not only from the russian embassy in washington, but also the russian consulate in san francisco who've been ordered to leave the country. >> it's outside the norms of international behavior. the president wanted to make sure they cut it out. >> reporter: president obama announced a list of sanctions as punishment for what u.s. officials say was russian's attempts to influence the election with a series of cyber attacks. two russian intelligence agencies are being identified and sanctioned for their role in the hacking, along with three companies and four individuals who allegedly assisted. and two russian cyber criminals, both on the fbi's most wanted list, have also been sanctioned.
7:05 am
the administration says evgeni bogachev has stolen more than $1 00 million from u.s. entities. russian owned compounds, one in new york and one in maryland, will also be closed to personnel by noon today. the white house says additional covert actions against the russians will not be announced because they are highly classified. >> they don't represent the totality of our response. >> reporter: u.s. intelligence agencies say the russians were engaged in an effort to harm hillary clinton's campaign thereby helping the campaign of president-elect donald trump. investigators say a hacking unit known as apc-28 targeted democratic party officials by sending malicious e-mails in the spring of 2016 that tricked recipients into changing their passwords. u.s. intelligence officials believe this hack, likely gave russian operatives access to the information of senior democratic party officials which was then leaked to the press and publicly
7:06 am
disclosed. >> russian attempts to undermine western democracies are going to be a problem with us for a very long time. >> reporter: longtime russian expert clifford kupchan has met clinton personally on many occasions and believes these sanctions won't prove effective in stopping russian cyber attacks. >> cyber warfare involves false information, it involves hacking and he's doing really well with it. he's winning. i don't think it's going to stop. >> reporter: u.s. investigators believe russian intelligence services have been carrying out widespread cyber espionage for about a decade on think tanks, universities, and corporations, as well. >> jeff, thanks. president-elect donald trump moved quickly to put out a statement on the russia sanctions. the statement said it's time for our country to move on to bigger and better things. nevertheless, in the interest of our country, and its great people, i will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of the situation.
7:07 am
mr. trump has the option of lifting the new sanctions when he becomes president three weeks from today. jan crawford has details of the trump team's reaction. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. in the past mr. trump has questioned allegations accusing russia of hacking to influence the election. and while his latest statement doesn't say that, members of the incoming trump administration are raising concerns about the hacking issue, and president obama's response in his last days in office. >> foreign governments shouldn't be hacking american institutions, period. >> incoming white house chief of staff reince priebus condemned any cyber attack against the u.s. but said the trump administration would like to see evidence of the russian hack that prompted the new sanctions against moscow. >> it would be nice if we could get to a place where the intelligence community, in unison, can tell us what it is that had been going on so that we can response, and we're going to get to that. >> the counselor to the
7:08 am
president-elect kellyanne conway expressed concern over reports that the sanctions may be more of a political power play by the obama administration. >> even "the new york times" characterized it as such that this may be an attempt to box him in. that's not the way the peaceful transitions of administrations work in our great democracy. >> reporter: white house officials insist the measures are to protect core national security interests. >> the next president wants to lift sanctions against senior russian intelligence units to make it easier for them to interfere with our elections, then he can go ahead and do so. we just don't think that will make much sense. >> mr. trump should be glad that he wasn't the one that came under pressure to do it himself. >> foreign policy expert mike o'hanlon says trump's attitude could be beneficial for the u.s. going forward. >> i'm hopeful that trump in a wise way can turn over a new leave and not be naive about putin doing us any favors but still try to take some of the venom out of the relationship.
7:09 am
>> now if president-elect trump does chooses to overturn the latest sanctions against russia he could face opposition from both sides of the aisle. a number of democrats and republican lawmakers have voiced concerns over russia's alleged action. josh? le. >> jan crawford in washington. thank you. john heilemann is the managing editor of bloomberg politics. john, good to see you. >> happy new year. >> happy new year. >> by the time we see each other again it will be 2017. >> so donald trump in the last two days has tweeted for people to get on with their lives, to move on, to bigger and better things, yesterday promised to neat with members of the intelligence community with whom he has been at odds here in recent weeks. what do you make of it all? >> this is a rare, one of a couple of rare situations in which trump sees himself, his political interests, are not in alignment with the republican party. so there are places where on the question of russia, on the question of business conflicts, these are places where you start to get pushback from republican
7:10 am
members of the senate. the democrats are not donald trump's problem at least in the short run. the problem that he has is with traditional institutional republicans and this is a place where he is somewhat -- how far he goes, we don't know. but where he's at least coming to grips with the reality that he at least has to move a little bit towards the more traditional stance as president, say okay i have to take it seriously, there's bipartisan agreement this is a big problem, i'm going to at least make prefunker to effort to peer like i'm taking this seriously as incoming president. >> john, the administration's prespons is being described as the strongest american response ever taken to state sponsored cyber attack. do you think that president obama didn't actually do enough on this issue? >> he's already faced criticism for not acting sooner. there will always be now, f forever, people who look back at the election of 2016 and ask the question of what would have happened, the united states government did name russia as the perpetrators of cyber -- of a cyberwar fare in the middle of an election, an attempt to kind
7:11 am
of, at the time back in october, but, we didn't take action at that time. the president didn't weigh in in a strong way, in a vocal way, at the time, even though the intelligence community did, and the question of what would have played out in october into the election had the administration gone fully there. done something like this at the time, will always be an open question. and for a lot of democrats, particularly loyal democrats who think in some way that hillary clinton should be president of the united states, they will always wonder whether barack obama was too restrained in october trying to stay out of >> we heard kellyanne conway referencing this front page "new york times" article saying the obama administration is trying to box in the president-elect. what does that mean for our viewers? and do you think that's actually the case? >> well, we have seen on a variety of policies fronts the obama administration openly an questions of environmental regulation, in other areas, trying to say, you know, we're going to try to lock in the things that president obama achieved over the course of eight years. this is an area where i think,
7:12 am
you know, there will be -- there's no doubt that the president is doing what he this is right, and this was an unprecedented thing that happened. the attempts of russia to intervene in american election. i think that these sanctions can be overturned. donald trump could walk away from them. but there's no doubt that there's a marker being laid down here that says look, if you're going to do this, if you're going to roll these sanctions back, there's going to be a lot of questions, there's going to be potential political costs. so yeah, in that sense, the obama administration is trying to -- trying to say, this is not a partisan issue. this is an issue of national security and mr. trump if you're going to deviate from these sanctions, you are going to be doing it in a way that's going to look political to people and that will have some costs to you as president. >> quickly, don, we've seen donald trump invoke president obama in glowing tones. but this transition seems to be less smooth and perhaps less peaceful by the day. >> yes. although it is funny to see
7:13 am
trump on twitter sort of doing his wayne's world thing yesterday. thought things were going well. not. then coming out in front of reporters and saying we're having a great conversation. things are going great. there's a little bit of a bipolar trump right now which is the trump on twitter still speaking in kind of the loud, technicolor tones to his base. and then the slightly more presidential trump who appears when he does occasionally come out and take some questions from reporters. but there's no question that the rosy glow of that transition from the first few days has gotten a little bit less rosy as we get closer and closer to inauguration. >> heilemann, party on. thank you, john. >> well northern new england is digging out from its strongest storm in about two years. the nor'easter dumped heavy snow on many roads leading to dozens of accidents around the region. at least one traffic death is blamed on the storm in parts of new york, vermont, new hampshire and maine expect a foot of snow or more demarco morgan is in
7:14 am
henniker, new hampshire. good morning. >> good morning. the place here is absolutely beautiful. believe it or not, there are people who beg for snow. like places like pike's peak because it's a boom for business. we've got around eight inches of snow in this area, but to the north of us on the east coast's highest peak, mount washington, officials say there is considerable danger of an avalanche. heavy, fast-falling snow blanketed the northeast overnight. and at times dropping six inches per hour at the new hampshire border. the slick, slippery roads left drivers stranded and sent cars careening off of highways. >> unless you have four wheel drive, i suggest not even getting on the roads. it's that bad. >> emergency crews worked through the night after more than 80 wrecks were reported. >> right wheels got off the edge and pulled it back on and the front came on all right but the
7:15 am
back end caught on it, and just brought it right around sideways. >> through bitter wind, as piling snow, plow after plow worked to clear roads across new england, as some areas were pummeled with nearly two feet of snow, more than 40,000 people were without power in maine. in new york and vermont, people shoveled sidewalks and store fronts. for others, the work was all downhill. job mcglone took the snowfall in stride. >> we're all dealing with it and kind of enjoying it while we're shoveling it. it's been a lot of fun so far. >> reporter: one ski resort in new england says they got more snow this year than they did all of last season. so that's good news for them. and good news for the people who are already stashting to show up here. now the snow is expected to taper off a little later today, so, vlad, we still have a chance to get out here and enjoy it. at least for the holiday weekend.
7:16 am
>> all right. keep the line warm for me i'll be there. danielle niles of our boston station is tracking the snowfall totals and has the forecast for new year's eve. danielle, good morning. >> good morning. areas of snow continue to push out of northern maine with lake-effect snow bands back to the west it was 6 to 12 inches of snow off the great lakes and may create some travel concerns across the country because of that. here on the west coast for us another front coming in is going to dive southward bringing rain and snow showers to the pacific northwest and then down to the desert southwest, as well. for our new year's eve and new year's day, not a major storm system, but slick roads, all the way from oregon stretching back in through parts of montana, and from phoenix back up into portions of new mexico, as well, as eastern and western colorado. new year's eve forecast across the country, snow coming out of the great lakes and heavy rain down across the gulf coast will create some issues and after that it is all about the cold, frigid air diving into the western united states. temperatures well below normal. >> danielle, thank you.
7:17 am
the cease-fire agreement in syria appears to be mostly holding after it went into effect last night. the deal was brokered by russia, and turkey. two countries on opposite sides of the civil war. if the cease-fire lasts, peace talks are scheduled for january. holly williams is tracking all the latest developments from istanbul. holly, good morning to you. >> good morning. we have unconfirmed reports of a rocket attack, airstrikes, artillery fire, and other violent clashes in syria today. but for the most part, this cease-fire does appear to be holding. russia and turkey say it is a nationwide cease-fire. but it does not include isis, or a powerful kurdish group that operates in northern syria. some rebel groups have also told us that they did not agree to the deal and this confusion about which rebel groups have or have not signed up. so while this could be a turning point in syria, it certainly is not an end to the country's five year long civil war a bloody
7:18 am
conflict which is thought to have claimed hundreds of thousands of lives. we've seen russia reassert itself as a global player in syria, in a way we haven't witnessed since the end of the cold war. moscow's lethal campaign of airstrikes has managed to prop up its allied syrian regime and helped it to retake the city of lop aleppo this month. and if the cease-fire holds it will effectively sideline the u.s. in syria. two previous cease-fires brokered by washington and moscow collapsed. this time around russia instead negotiated with furk can i, an american nato ally that is growing ever closer to moscow. vlad? >> holly williams in istanbul, thank you. iraqi troops have resumed their offensive to recapture the country's second largest city from the islamic state after a two week pause. iraqi forces pushed deeper into mosul yesterday with the help of u.s. led coalition air strikes. the city is the last major

8:02 am
new sanctions leavied against his country. russia's foreign ministry wanted to kick out 35 americans, but putin says and i quote, we will not resort to irresponsible kitchen diplomacy, end quote. he also said he'll consider the next administration's actions before deciding any further response. under the u.s. sanctions, 35 officials from the russian embassy in washington and the consulate in san francisco have 72 hours to leave the united states. and by noon today, russian access will be denied to two moscow owned compounds, one in mare m maryland and one in new york. foreign individual officers in three companies are also named, two russians are being identified as cybercriminals. president obama ordered the sanctions in retaliation for russia's cyberattacks meant to influence the 2016 elections. white house spokesman eric schultz said the president wanted to send a message. >> the president is mindful of
8:03 am
retaliation measures when he makes these actions, but the president wanted today is to make sure that russia knew that we weren't going to accept their interfering in our elections. that for too long, russia engaged in malicious cyberactivity, and russia has been harassing our diplomats serving overseas. that's unacceptable. >> the white house says additional covert actions against the russians will not be announced, because they are highly classified. >> president obama's sweeping executive action against russia could be reversed by the next administration. in a statement, president-elect trump said and i quote, it is time for our country to move on to bigger and better things. nevertheless, i will meet with leaders of the intelligence kwh community next week to be updated on the facts of the situation. >> john mccain and lindsey graham said the sanctions were a small price for russia to pay. the senators say they intend to lead the effort in the new

congress to impose stronger sanctions on russia and incoming senate democratic leader chuck schumer tweeted strongly support the obama administration's work to fight back against russia's interference in our election. we need to punch back and punch back hard. >> new york times national security correspondent david sanger has written extensively about this. in his new article today, he called the actions against russia, the strongest american response yet to a state sponsored cyberattack. and david sanger good enough to join us this morning from washington. good morning to you. >> great to be with you, josh. >> what did these actions, i know, again, they were called, you called them the strongest american response yet to a cyberattack. what do they really mean for russia? >> well, they are the strongest to a cyberattack, but we don't have a whole lot of history there. the strongest until now had been some fairly modest sanctions against north korea for its attack on sony two years ago. i think the big question here is
8:05 am
are these strong enough to create a deterrent not only to the russians, not only for the next american election, but for the elections that are coming up in germany, and in france, and to other countries that might take a look at the techniques that the russians used here, this combination of new cybertechniques and sort of old style information warfare, and figure out a way to go make use of it themselves. and i'm not persuaded that what the administration is working its way toward here yet is effective cyberdeterrents and it certainly is quite late as many of president obama's own aides concede. >> david, you're talking about those sanctions that have been made public. the obama administration said they'll take covert actions. would those be effective and is that what people want to see, give than might not deter russia either if it is not public? >> good point, because the whole key to deterrence here is that the price you pay is pretty
8:06 am
obvious. otherwise, you're not deterring other actors who would go on. there are a number of things in the cyberrealm that the united states could do to russia, you could expose many of the financial dealings of the oligarchs, could expose putin's own fortune and how the oligarchs helped them get that, knock holes in the censorship system that the russians have developed around the internet. it could do any of those things. my guess is the u.s. action will be pretty cautious because throughout this, from the first the white house got a whiff of this in the summer of -- in last summer was that they have been concerned about escalation. cyberescalation from the russians. you don't want to get on an escalation ladder you can't get off. >> a short time ago, russian president vladimir putin said he's not going to expel any u.s. diplomats. what do you make of that
8:07 am
decision? >> well, boy did he play this one well. first, he has the foreign minister come out and publicly say i recommend it. the recommendation strikes me as something that was made to be turned down. so putin can step in and say, you know, i'm ignoring this president, i'm moving right on to donald trump, and then if you read the rest of the statement, i don't want to interrupt the vacations of these american diplomats, then he invites the american kids of the diplomats to come to the kremlin around new year's and enjoy the christmas trees. so he's doing everything he can possibly do to say, i'm forgetting about barack obama, i'm moving on to the next guy. >> to that point, you also wrote that there is a belief that perhaps these actions were intended to box in donald trump, who has now said, while saying for the last couple of days that people should move on, he'll meet with members of the intelligence community next week. what do you make thus far of
8:08 am
president-elect trump's response? >> well, i thought it was interesting he said he would meet the intelligence representatives next week. it is not as if he hasn't already been receiving intelligence reports, and presumably those have included some about the russian hacking. last summer when he became the nominee. he has consistently wanted to dismiss the thought that russia could be involved. but i detected in that latest statement a sort of willingness to be open at least to the evidence, which i think is a helpful thing. president obama's actions would definitely intended as a -- primarily as the russians, but secondly at trying to box in mr. trump because what he would have to do is after january 20th, basically lift these sanctions. reallow diplomats who are suspected of being spies into the country. it is pretty clear that president-elect trump's own party would be pretty upset
8:09 am
about that. >> to be continued. david sanger of the new york times, thank you very much. we appreciate it. >> great to be with you. the strongest snowstorm to hit new england in two years is making travel dangerous this morning. it brought blizzard-like conditions, emergency crews worked through the nights as slippery roads left drivers stranded and sent cars sliding off highways. >> snowplows had a hard time keeping up with the storm. some areas in western maine were pummeled with two feet of snow. more than 40,000 people in the state lost power in parts of new york, vermont and ham hmm anew are expected to end up with a foot or more of snow. ahead, a look at some of the most successful holiday ads and the new tactics companies are employing to get

they don't rely on it so much. >> i'm looking at this new year's resolution list we have in our graphic back there says lose weight, exercise, drink more. it is meant to say drink more water, not drink more. but i wonder if -- i wonder if it is because some of these are just too ambitious and also kind of vague, lose weight. >> too vague, we take on too much at once. the best resolutions are ones that are very attainable, measurable, and taking them one at a time -- you and i were tweeting about this, we have a lot of resolutions, one at a time, don't take them on all at once. that willpower can't take it. >> i think it is interesting because maybe it is that we want to be better people and so we list all these things that say this will make us a better person, but you can probably just go with one. >> that's right. i was thinking about that, how it is now our number one resolution to be a better person, which is noble. but you have to get specific. if you want to make this a reality, you need to go to a cafe, take a couple of hours out and define what being a better person is to you.
8:36 am
is that a better person to yourself, feeding yourself better, being kinder? is it voluntarying more, giving more money. >> does keeping it vague give you a better shot? >> it gives you an out, no. an out. you want the best goals are what people refer to as smart goals. so you don't want to be vague. you want to be specific. you want it to be measurable. you want it to be attainable. you want it to be realistic. and you want it to be time sensitive. so that there is some sort of urgency that you have to make this resolution now. >> i've already failed. >> no, there is still time. >> you say anticipate failure. that's an important part. >> that is. part of -- it takes three months to get a new behavior. a new habit set. so if your head, you need to mentally prepare for the setbacks and ask yourself what happened and recommit every time you have a failure. recommit to yourself. >> we'll keep ourselves honest on twitter. >> glass half full program here.
