CIA Prepping for Possible Cyber Attack Against Russia

According to U.S. intelligence officials, the Obama administration is prepping for a covert cyber attack on Russia, in reaction to their interference in the American presidential election. The CIA will be delivering options to the White House for a cyber investigation meant to "embarrass" the Kremlin leadership. Former intelligence officers told NBC News that the agency had gathered reams of documents that could expose unsavory tactics by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Apparently, there is a long history of U.S officials searching for retaliation on the Russian government- including cyber options, only to abandon the idea later on.
Right now, the question lies within the scope of a secondary attack. If our government launches this attack, where will Russia hit us next?
