Trump calls indictments of 12 Russians charged with helping his campaign ‘stories’ — then blames Obama

Published

on

U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday questioned why Barack Obama’s administration did not act on allegations of Russian meddling in the U.S. 2016 presidential election.

On Friday a federal grand jury said Russia’s military intelligence agency officers covertly monitored computers of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and Democratic campaign committees, and stole large amounts of data.

Trump gloats about his ‘takedown’ of CNN’s Jim Acosta before Twitter ranting about his 2016 Electoral College win

“The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administrations,” Trump said on Twitter.

“Why didn’t they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September, before the Election?”

“….Where is the DNC Server, and why didn’t the FBI take possession of it? Deep State?” Trump asked.

“[O]fficials described...hesitation to go into detail with Mr. Trump about operations against Russia for concern...that he might countermand it or discuss it with foreign officials, as he did in 2017 when he mentioned a sensitive operation...to the Russian foreign minister.” https://t.co/BXTjjXBmia
