On Monday, President Donald Trump charged that former President Barack Obama neglected to investigate the Russian hacking into the 2016 election because he thought Hillary Clinton would win the election.
“The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win…..and did not want to ‘rock the boat,’ ” Trump posted on Twitter. “He didn’t ‘choke,’ he colluded or obstructed, and it did the Dems and Crooked Hillary no good.”
Trump added, “The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling. With 4 months looking at Russia … under a magnifying glass, they have zero ‘tapes’ of T people colluding. There is no collusion & no obstruction.”
“I should be given an apology!” he exclaimed.
Democrats have been continuously accusing the Trump administration of colluding with the Russians. As a result, the FBI, Justice Department, and Congress have been investigating any possible links.
In an interview on “Fox and Friends” last week, Trump further condemned Obama for being aware of Russian interference, arguing that he “did nothing about it.”
“Well I just heard today for the first time that Obama knew about Russia a long time before the election, and he did nothing about it,” stated Trump. “But nobody wants to talk about that.”
“The CIA gave him information on Russia a long time before they even — before the election. And I hardly see it. It’s an amazing thing,” he continued.
