President Donald Trump continued pushing back on the left’s obsession with Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election, criticizing former President Barack Obama for failing to respond properly.
“And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.” Esther 7:9 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: President Trump has nothing to worry about with this phony narrative about him “colluding with the Russians” because it’s simply not true. But do you know who does have to worry about it? Obama and his whole administration, that’s who. It has come to light today that Obama did in fact know all about Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 election, and chose to do nothing about it. Absolutely nothing. Obama should take a moment to remember who it was that hung on the gallows Haman created for Mordecai. It wasn’t Mordecai.
“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,” Trump said in an interview with Fox and Friends on Sunday.
Trump was referring to a report stating that the CIA gave Obama information about the Russian attempt to influence the election, but quoted administration officials who lamented that they failed to respond properly.
Obama administration knew about Russian meddling in August and did nothing:
“The question is if he had the information, why didn’t he doesn’t something about it?” Trump asked. He added that it was “sad” that the news media didn’t focus on Obama’s failure.
Representative Adam Schiff and President Donald Trump don’t agree on much about Russia’s meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections, but they agree on this: former President Barack Obama should have done more to stop Moscow from intervening. Obama made a “very serious mistake” in not doing more about Russia’s intervention in the presidential election campaign, Schiff of California, the top ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said on Sunday. source
The topic appeared to be on Trump’s mind over the weekend as he sent messages to his followers on Twitter.
“Obama Administration official said they ‘choked’ when it came to acting on Russian meddling of election,” he wrote. “They didn’t want to hurt Hillary?” source
