Mr. Obama claimed in a press conference on Friday that the cyberattacks, allegedly carried out by Russia, ceased after he confronted Mr. Putin at a conference.

“In early September, when I saw President Putin in China, I felt that the most effective way to ensure that that didn’t happen was to talk to him directly and tell him to cut it out and there are going to be some serious consequences if he didn’t,” Mr. Obama said Friday. “And, in fact, we did not see further tampering of the election process, but the leaks through WikiLeaks had already occurred.”
