(Studio: John Berman; Washington: Alex Marquardt) How the suspicious activity that is cyber attacks on US government agencies by Russian spies was detected months ago by cybersecurity officials but it could not be tied to the software used at that time & the question is what data has been accessed & what procedures were used by the hack attackers & why President Trump has not said anything on the hack despite the criticism from Senator Mitt Romney discussed.

(Studio: John Berman) Live discussion held with former White House cybersecurity czar Richard Clarke about this cyberthreat story. [CLARKE - offers views on how this is "full-scale espionage" putting back doors into government agency networks that could be wiped out, on what Trump should be doing about the crisis that is being addressed by the government, on how we need to consider going on offense against Russia, on the message sent by Trump's inaction, on what President-elect Joe Biden's national security team should focus on: cybersecurity underpins all of this.]
