U.S. Officials are reporting that 35 Russian diplomats have been given 72 hour notice that they are expelled from the United States.
Early reports show that the Russian diplomats were located in Washington, D.C., San Francisco, New York and Maryland.
Two diplomatic “compounds” were also said to be “shut down” in New York and Maryland.
The expulsion comes on the heels of President Obama’s promise to take action for alleged Russian hacking during the 2016 presidential election.
While the Obama Administration and his CIA reported that they have proof of hacking by the Russian government, no evidence has been released to the public.
As with many government operations, the public has been left to trust the reports of the Obama administration with no evidence.
According to the Russian government, the Russian Federation maintains Consular Offices in five cities around the United States: New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Seattle and Houston, Texas.
The Russian Consular Office in Houston was contacted to inquire if that office has been shut down as well and no response has been received as of this report.
