national committee and hillary clinton's campaign chairman to upend the election. jeff pegues has more. >> reporter: u.s. intelligence agencies believe russian hacking units often used other people's computer networks to hide their malicious activity. newly declassified documents show that u.s. investigators suspect that russian intelligence services have access to compromised computer infrastructure in as many as 60 countries. according to this joint analysis, u.s. intelligence agencies have been tracking specific russian signatures, or fingerprints, of malicious cyberactivity for years and led them to focus on one culprit in connection with the cyberattack that affected democratic party officials. >> it was very clear from day one that this was russia. >> reporter: kell ward the executive director of the congressional campaign committee said she and other democratic party officials were notified of
7:06 am
the cyberattack on june 14th but by then, it was too late. the hackers had already stolen valuable opposition research for congressional races and the information was about to show up in republican ads. >> the material that was leaked was weaponized in a way to affect our most important races at the most important time. >> reporter: it was weaponized. >> the hackers released the materials and put them on the internet. >> reporter: cybersecurity experts and u.s. officials say the tactic is classic russian information war fare and uses in countries around the world including ukraine and turkey. with the blessing of vladimir putin rurgs intelligence sources are working to make a playbook which plans for planned cyberattacks to release embarrassing documents or cause other disruptions. president obama has ordered a report on the russian

cyberattacks and it is expected to be completed sometime in the next few weeks. u.s. officials tell cbs news that through a combination of forensic evidence and human intelligence, it will reveal new details about the cyberattacks that have yet to come to light. for "cbs this morning," jeff pegues, washington. president-elect donald trump praised russian president vladimir putin for not immediately retaliating about new sanctions imposed by the obama administration. on friday russian diplomats in maryland were seen packing up to leave after their expulsion from the u.s. 35 russian diplomats were told they have to leave the u.s. by today. >> trump tweeted praise for putin's quote, great move for delay on retaliation against american diplomats. he said i always knew he was very smart. the russian embassy retweeted what trump

7:09 am
russia is justified. in a statement thursday, house speaker paul ryan said the action by the administration is overdue and serves as a prime example of this administration's ineffective foreign policy. senate majority leader concurred and writing sanctions against the russian intelligence services are a good initial state but, however, late in coming. >> i think putin is a kind of guy if you get in a brawl with him he keeps brawling. >> reporter: michael o'hanlon says the president-elect's approach to the kremlin could actually help the u.s. >> i give trump some credit for recognizing that most problems in the world, we actually need to cooperate with russia or at least minimize our disagreements. >> reporter: the president-elect will meet with intelligence officials next week to learn more details about the hacking investigation. his team says after that briefing, he may have a more formal response to the actions taken by the obama administration. >> paula, thank you.
7:10 am
we are joined by "the washington post" column icht ca columnist katherine rampel. do you think this could survive the pressure from the republican party? >> so far the pressure from the republican party has not been particularly great, i would add. you have john mccain and lindsey graham, you know, pushing for even tougher sanctions but you have a lot of congressional republicans basically saying that what russia did was excusable because it produced truthful information which may or on may not be accurate but, of course, it's a very dangerous logic to use to say, well, as long as the information is truthful, we don't care if they hack us, if they engage in essentially cyber war fare. >> we will have hearings on the hacking do you think that is an attempt to reset relations with russia? >> potentially. the options are pretty bad. trump, during the campaign, was
7:11 am
sensitive about being called putin's puppet. wave number of stories that make it look pretty bad, right, if a number of the attacks that russia has attempted on the integrity of our electoral system. trump seems to have a lot of admiration for putin. >> we know during the campaign trail donald trump pushed creating jobs and re-evaluating the economy. what else do you think he'll push through the first 100 days? >> early on maybe see a major tax cut come through and republicans in the congress and senate are very much on board with. we may also see some sort of major infrastructure overhaul or investment which would probably be done through the tax system as well. and i would also look for something to happen on obamacare, the affordable care act. exactly what that looks like remains to be seen. >> there is a lot of talk about
7:12 am
repealing obamacare over some kind of time frame. that is murky but any indication when they might make that happen? >> my best guess they will try to repeal it in name at the very least right away. when it will actually come into effect could be a couple of years from now. health care is very, very complicated. it's very easy to break and while the affordable care act, itself, as a brand, is unpopular, most of the things that the affordable care act does are quite popular and americans don't necessarily realize that the one is associated with the other. so if republicans immediately repeal the subsidies or the protections for those with preexisting conditions, et cetera, you know, the republicans, themselves, might receive a lot of blowback as a result. >> thank you so much. today is the last day of 2016. of course, new year's celebrations are taking place all across the world. in some places it is already 2017. in new zealand, the new year was

7:18 am
from 2015. but before drones weighing just over half a pound or more take flight, the owner needs to register with the faa or face the potential of huge fines. the faa expects 2.5 million drones sold this year. so far more than 615,000 hobbyists have registered. that is part of an effort by regulators to get drone users to follow the rules including flying below 400 feet and away from airports. more than 1800 drones have been spotted around airports up about 50% from 2015. just this month an inspector general report criticized the faa's oversight of drone safety for not being pro active. do you think the bulk of consumers know they even have to register their drone? >> well, the number suggest that no. >> reporter: michael droback is
7:19 am
a lawyer. >> enforcements and penalties and sounds like the federal government is taking care of us and protecting our skies. the reality they are not allowing for the kind of commercial operations we do want while, at the same time, not providing real guidance how we can be good stewards of this technology. >> reporter: the faa has koffocd on educating drone users instead of issuing fines. while the ffa can seek civil fines the much more substantial penalties can only be handled by law enforcement. for "cbs this morning: saturday," kris van cleave, washington. this came as news to me. my son asked for a drone for christmas but i had no idea about the registration. >> we went on assignment and i learned how to pilot a drone. it's incredible the footage you can get. i'm a big believer. time to show you some of this morning's headlines. a north carolina is buying the state's incoming governor some time.

7:47 am
you make of that that is being attributed to russia? >> i think that overall 2016 is going to be the year that u.s. government and congress woke up to the fact that we are under cyberattack. i think the reporting last night of the u.s. electric grid in vermont basically tells us we are vulnerable and the electric grid is vulnerable and the fact they have been here a long time and something that has occurred over the last number of years and that systems like skata need to be secured and we need to take a hard look at this. i think the report that was released by the department of homeland security and the department of justice essentially tells us here is a smoking gun. we do have adversaries out to take down the u.s. and its electric grid and these type of things and a warning shot for all of us. >> kimberly, the sanctions against russia, do you think they are enough and solid enough to really put the pressure on the russian government? >> a couple of things to think about. the fact that the code was released allowed the vermont hacking to be discovered and so it's already had that positive impact. also, talking about what russia
7:48 am
is doing and attributing it to specific russian intelligence agencies can empower allies like france and germany and netherlands have their electrical systems under attack to similarly report things and take actions and limits to what the u.s. can do. we obey international law so we can't go around hacking the russian civilian power grid. as a result we have to take small steps. but i think these small steps can have an effect and i think they might actually lead to an agreement with russia under trump. >> an agreement regarding what specifically? >> regarding cyberactivities. we saw in 2015 that when obama threatened sanctions against china and named and shamed the people in the chinese military intelligence organization who were responsible for some hacking in the united states, we actually seemed to get some movement from china on limiting that hacking and on reaching an agreement with obama to limit cyberactivities because they realized it was in both countries' interests not to have these very dangerous
7:49 am
