Trump lashes out at Obama over latest report on Russian meddling

25 Juin, 2017, 19:40 | Author: Claudine Rigal

"Just out", Trump tweeted Friday, "The Obama Administration knew far in advance of November 8th about election meddling by Russian Federation".

The Washington Post published a lengthy investigation of how the Obama administration had handled discoveries that the Russians were attempting to influence the outcome of the 2016 election.

Measures Mr Obama had considered but which were not put into action included planting cyber weapons in the Russian infrastructure and releasing information personally damaging to Mr Putin.

Complacency may have also undercut the administration's efforts to punish Russian Federation. Trump, however, chose to make it apparent, via these recent Tweets, that not only does he now believe Russian Federation attacked our election, but he thinks President Obama should have done more to prevent the attacks.

Washington did issue several warnings to Russia about its activities past year, including one in September delivered by President Obama himself to his Russian counterpart.

Trump made similar comments Friday, tweeting that the Obama administration knew of Russia's activities "far in advance" of the election but took no action. "They didn't want to hurt Hillary?", Trump tweeted.

The incident, which started just before noon and ended around 10 p.m., forced authorities to put the surrounding area on lockdown. The officer was pursuing them across an open field, Coyle said, when the man pointed a handgun at him and fired.

But it would be roughly two months - not until October 7, 2016, as Feinstein and Cardin pointed out in their letter - before the Obama administration publicly declared that the Russian government was behind the hacking of the DNC and other Democratic groups.

Interviews with administration officials revealed that Obama directly confronted Putin over the allegations during a meeting of world leaders in China.

As he has with other newsmaking events, Trump used the article to argue that a months-long focus by the media, Congress and federal investigators on his campaign's alleged ties to Russian Federation has been misdirected. It is not clear who "T" was from his tweet.

Putin's visit came after the US Treasury Department on Tuesday blacklisted 38 individuals and entities and two Russian government officials for their alleged roles in the Ukrainian crisis.

"He had a specific goal to defeat (Democratic nominee) Hillary Clinton and that explains the huge coordinated effort from the botnets to the trolls", Merkley added. And aside from the scandals, experts are now expressing concerns that the country's current cyber security system is not strong enough to prevent future hacking. He even went as far as to attack Democrats such as Senators Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi because they had been photographed in the past with Putin and/or his associates.
