Months after US intelligence officials said top Russian officials were involved with hacking the Democratic National Committee and other political groups, a new report claims president Vladimir Putin is "personally involved." NBC News did not specify what the evidence is, but said two unnamed senior officials have access to information showing Putin personally directed how the information would be used to affect the recent election.

There's some disagreement on the actual intent of the operation, but the information is apparently coming from diplomatic sources and spies. So what's next? The report goes on to say that officials are probing Putin's financial holdings and that the Obama administration could "feel compelled" to act before leaving office.
