Trump Re-Ups Criticism of Obama's Handling of Russian Federation

It was common knowledge from our intelligence community that Russian Federation and WikiLeaks were working together to support Trump. He also is looking into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, which President Trump has repeatedly denied, and possible obstruction of justice by the president.

President Donald Trump kept his foot on the gas on Twitter Tuesday blaming his predecessor for Russian interference in the 2016 USA elections, annexation of Crimea, and swelling influence in Syria.

He also wrote that "what we have instead is a president vulgarly tweeting that the Russians are "laughing their asses off in Moscow" for how we've been investigating their interventions".

Mr. Trump tweeted Tuesday that because President Obama "thought Crooked Hillary was going to win and he didn't want to 'rock the boat.'" But Trump says that when he won "the whole game changed and the Russian excuse became the narrative of the Dems". But Americans are still waiting for him to condemn Russia, Fox News host Shepard Smith said.

THE FACTS: The Trump administration actually lags the Obama administration on this front, by all public evidence.

"Obama was President up to, and beyond, the 2016 Election".

"If it was the GOAL of Russian Federation to create discord, disruption and chaos within the USA then, with all of the Committee Hearings, Investigations and Party hatred, they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams", Trump tweeted. Their refusal to accept evidence that a wealthy man with strong ties to President Vladimir Putin funneled millions of dollars to America to influence the election strikes us as self-serving and dishonest.

Earlier, the White house announced bad news for Russian Federation.

Trump has repeatedly denied that any collusion took place between his former campaign and Russian Federation to win the White House.

That conclusion was followed by special counsel Robert Mueller's indictment against 13 Russians and three Russian companies accused of plotting to meddle in that election, ultimately aiming to benefit Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton. A later report from The Post quoted a senior Obama administration official as saying the response to Russia's hacking "is the hardest thing about my entire time in government to defend", adding, "I feel like we sort of choked". It lays out details about how Russian Federation meddled in the election and what crimes were allegedly committed.

Last month, the Trump administration said it would not impose additional sanctions on Russian Federation, despite a new law that called for those measures.

Obama has indeed been criticized for not doing more to protect the electoral system, even by fellow Democrats, but if his steps were insufficient, they do not illustrate complacency.

Trump has long insisted his campaign did not collude with Russian Federation, even as the USA intelligence community, and now Mueller, have concluded that Russian Federation conducted a wide campaign to meddle in the election to help Trump win.
