President Donald Trump was back on Twitter Monday morning, slamming his predecessor for doing nothing about Russian influence on the 2016 presidential election.
Though Trump himself has previously said he’s not convinced Russia did meddle in the election — despite the conclusion of U.S. intelligence agencies — Trump’s latest Twitter tack is to attack Barack Obama for not doing anything about it.
He also accused Obama of collusion for making that choice, saying Obama was motivated not by caution but by a belief that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would win.
“The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win..” Trump tweeted in a two-part attack.
The second tweet concluded: “…and did not want to “rock the boat.” He didn’t “choke,” he colluded or obstructed, and it did the Dems and Crooked Hillary no good.”
A third tweet added: “The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling. With 4 months looking at Russia…”
Then this: ..under a magnifying glass, they have zero “tapes” of T people colluding. There is no collusion & no obstruction. I should be given apology! Read more here.
