Trump accuses Obama of not acting against Russia, again

NY [U.S.A.], June 25: United States President Donald Trump has accused former president Barack Obama of not taking an action against Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections, suggesting that they were trying to help Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

It was the Democratic Party's turn Sunday to sweat over Russian meddling as lawmakers acknowledged that President Barack Obama knew about the foreign election interference but failed to act until after the 2016 presidential race.

Schiff and his Senate counterpart, Dianne Feinstein, issued an unusual public statement in September condemning Russian Federation for the alleged hacks. "There are a lot of good people in Russian Federation that don't have any say whatsoever", Manchin said on "Face the Nation" on Sunday.

"For Donald Trump, who openly egged on the Russians to hack Hillary Clinton's emails and celebrated every release of these stolen documents to criticize Obama, now it's a bit like somebody knowingly receiving stolen property blaming the police for not stopping the theft", he said.

Before the election, the Obama administration issued several warnings to Moscow about its activities, including one delivered by the President to Putin in September, the Post reported.

"They didn't want to publicly talk about Russia's role ..."

"We made massive efforts so they couldn't do that", Blinken, who is now a CNN global affairs analyst, told the network's Kate Bolduan on "At This Hour".

As his campaign remains under investigation for possible collusion with Russia, President Trump is pointing fingers at Obama.

Manchin's comments come in the wake of a Washington Post report that detailed the Obama administration's approach to punishing the Russian government for its hacking and influence campaign meant to politically damage Hillary Clinton and swing the election in Donald Trump's favor.

Schiff said the sanctions should have come sooner and been stronger.

Since Wednesday the Obama administration's response has increasingly come under scrutiny in dueling congressional hearings held by the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, in a bombshell report by the Washington Post and in the disclosure of correspondence between two Democratic senators last fall and Obama's State Department first reported on by BuzzFeed. "I think it's very important to show no nexus has been proven between what Russian Federation or any other foreign government tried to do in the actual election result", Conway said.

Questioning Obama's inaction, Trump said, "Obama didn't do enough to address the situation". "Focus on them, not T!" he said in a Twitter posting to his 32.8 million followers.
