Trump turns Russia suspicions against Obama

Under fire from Justice Department and congressional investigations, President Trump on Monday attempted to deflect suspicion of collusion with Russia and obstruction of justice onto his predecessor.

In a string of tweets, Trump said it was former President Obama who “colluded or obstructed” for not taking more decisive action against Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential 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.’ He didn’t ‘choke,’ he colluded or obstructed, and it did the Dems and Crooked Hillary no good.”

Trump was likely responding to a Washington Post report, published Friday, detailing the Obama administration’s response to Russia’s interference in the election. That account portrayed Obama as reluctant to retaliate decisively for fear of appearing to favor Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton. Trump, contending Obama “colluded or obstructed,” appeared to suggest Obama purposefully declined to act.

“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 apology!”
