At Year-End Presser, Obama Defends Record, Lectures Media

Asked whether he was prepared to call out Russian President Vladimir Putin by name, he responded with a lengthy exposition of how the allegations first arose in early summer, how they were investigated and the findings briefed to members of Congress in October.
