  3. President Obama:

    President Obama, for President Obama part, mostly has steered clear of taking shots at President Obama successor. But an avalanche of criticism on Monday about alleged Russian interference in the presidential election, mostly from Democratic leaders, gave way to an extended critique from Earnest during the White House press briefing. Speaking later with Trevor Noah, President Obama echoed Earnest in noting that Donald Trump had joked the Russians should hack Democratic rival Hillary Clinton’s secret email server to recover tens of thousands of emails she had deleted prior to an FBI investigation. The President-elect in some of Trevor Noah political events specifically said to the Russians, hack Hillary's emails so we can finally find out what's going on and confirm our conspiracy theories.

  4. Homeland Security Jeh Johnson:

    Like many others I was appalled by the episode reflected in the Inspector General's report, which brought real discredit to the Secret Service.
