Source: National Cyber Security News

On March 13, a book titled “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump” will hit the shelves. Written by Michael Isikoff and David Corn, the book specifically focuses on Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 US presidential elections.

In the summer of 2016, the Obama team prepared a plan for a large-scale cyber-operation against the Russian media, the country’s most influential businessmen and President Vladimir Putin personally, according to former White House cybersecurity coordinator Michael Daniel.

His remarks are included in “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” a book by Michael Isikoff’s and David Corn’s which is due to go on sale on March 13. Excerpts were released by Yahoo News earlier this week.

Daniel explained that the cyber-offensive against Moscow was co-authored by Celeste Wallander, the US National Security Council’s former chief Russia expert.

The plan stipulated that the National Security Agency (NSA) would conduct a number of cyberattacks to neutralize Russian websites and the Guccifer 2.0 hacker, who compromised the emails of the campaign headquarters of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party’s National Committee.
