Trump Keeps Up Attacks On Obama Over Russian Meddling

Alex van der Zwaan

President Donald Trump has attacked his own attorney general Jeff Sessions, challenging him to launch an investigation into the Obama administration for failing to do enough to stop the alleged Russian interference into the 2016 elections. Trump said in his tweet. "It's very clear that Russia meddled in the election, it's also very clear that it didn't have an impact on the election and it's also very clear that the Trump campaign didn't collude with the Russians in any way for this process to take place".

"Ask Jeff Session!" he concluded, misspelling the last name of his attorney general.

As he has in other tweets, Trump tried to deflect attention from questions about whether his campaign colluded with Russian Federation - an allegation he has vigorously denied.

The special counsel investigation being led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller announced charges against a 19th person Tuesday, an attorney with close links to a top Trump campaign official.

In recent days, Trump has repeatedly tried to shift attention to how President Obama handled Russian Federation interference in the 2016 election.

On Friday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the indictment of 13 Russian nationals and three entities for allegedly breaking USA laws to interfere with the 2016 presidential election.

Trump in a tweet yesterday questioned why the Obama administration did not do more to counter Russian meddling in the presidential elections.

The 44th president, however, personally warned Russian President Vladimir Putin against messing with the election, imposed sanctions on Russian individuals and entities, kicked out 35 Russian diplomats and closed two of the Kremlin's compounds in the United States. "So why didn't he do something about Russian meddling?"

Earlier this week, Trump said Obama failed to act against Russian meddling because he thought Clinton would win. Obama, however, was referring to Trump's claims of a rigged election and calls at the time for supporters to monitor polling sites for potentially ineligible voters attempting to cast ballots. It showed the dangers of Fox News.
