Russian spies & diplomats expelled by US Obama administration

35 Russian nationals have been expelled from the US in the last days of the Obama Administration; spies have been named and outed.  President Obama ordered these measures in reprisal for Russian interferance in the US election, hacking into Democratic party emails and leaking them to the media.  Roderick and Dr Peter Chen, Senior Lecturer in Politics at the University of Sydney, looked why this happened and what 2017 holds when Donald Trump moves into the White house.
