>> and he loves those rallies. >> let's go back to russia. russia is on the defense demanding the u.s. provide proof of these hacking claims or to simply stop making these accusations. >> terry moran has the latest. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. russians are watching in amazement and some right here in the kremlin with delight no doubt at the post election chaos in the united states. one thing you hear right away, people don't believe it. they don't believe president obama's accusations. they don't believe the u.s. intelligence agencies and you would expect that from the kremlin. they're denying everything and the russian state media dominated by the putin regime spinning all kinds of stories, the latest, that the hack was an inside job. by disgruntled democrats. ordinary russians, too, can't believe it, that the great american democracy could be easily undermined by a hack. they just don't believe it. another thing you hear, relief that hillary clinton lost. the kremlin saw her as a dire
she was seen as too hawkish and anti-putin. they like trump. here for most people, they don't know trump. he is for russians in the kremlin and around this country a welcome change from president obama but like he is for people all over the world for people in the united states, he is a wild card on the world stage. dan and paula. >> unpredictable. terry moran, thank you for reporting. let's bring in martha raddatz who is in washington where she'll be hosting "this week." good morning to you. in terms of proof from our intelligence agencies what kind of proof can these folks provide and can they show their cards without compromising national security with revealing sources and methods and the like? >> whatever proof they have seems to have convinced all 17 intelligence agencies that there is no question it was the russians. some proof is markings that tell them where the hack originated.
even time zones, language markings. but the classified intelligence that would link this to senior russian officials and vladimir putin himself could include so called signals intelligence which is sophisticated eavesdropping and that is the kind that won't be revealed because it would compromise sources and methods. >> it feels like we're backed into a corner. with our options for retaliation. president obama has promised some sort of payback. what are the options? at the end of the day, how does this thing end with russia? >> well paula, you heard what the president said on friday. he said our goal continues to be to send a clear message to russia or others not to do this to us because we can do stuff to you. that stuff ranges from cyberattacks on russian networks which is risky because we're vulnerable as well. more sanctions which haven't worked that well or something that will let russia know we
could escalate. but that's not the goal. as former cia director dave petraeus said at a conference this week, the question is how subtle do you want it, how damaging do you want it. how you try to end it here rather than ratchet it up and that is what they're trying to figure out. >> a tricky game. a fine line to walk. martha raddatz, thank you very much. i want to remind everybody martha has a big show speaking with dnc chair donna brazile about russia interference in the 2016 presidential election and former cia director about how the new trump administration will respond coming up on "this week" later this morning right here on abc. >> and they'll be talking about the electoral college. and casting those votes tomorrow as well. let's send things over to ron claiborne. check in with you this morning. what else is going on around the world? >> good morning to you paula and dan. good morning. and good morning everyone. we begin with the deadly accident in southern california. th i
