Everyone should be asking why, if Obama and his gurus knew about the Russian hacking and election interference months before the election took place, why didn’t he (Obama) or his minions do anything to stop it then? Why wasn’t there no serious action taken at the time and why wait until after Trump was sworn into office to make it a national issue? That’s basically the accusations being leveled by the White House.
The White House blamed the Obama administration Sunday for failing to tackle possible Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election, sticking with a new strategy to fault President Trump’s predecessor for an issue currently facing the president himself as part of a widening FBI probe.
Appearing on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday morning, Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, struck a combative tone, saying: “It’s the Obama administration that was responsible for doing absolutely nothing from August to January with the knowledge that Russia was hacking into our election. They did absolutely nothing. They’re responsible for this.”
Then, referring to a Washington Post story last week that chronicled in detail the intense debate within the Obama White House on how to handle the mounting threat posed by Russia to the United States’s democratic process, she said: “I have a hacking question for the Obama administration: Why did you, quote, choke, in the name of one of their senior administration officials? Why did you do nothing? Why didn’t you inform candidate Trump?” …
The inaction of Barack Obama and his administration should be an indication that the Russian interference, collusion and hacking wasn’t nearly as serious as many are making it now otherwise they should have taken action to stop it. It also demonstrates how confident the Obama administration was that Hillary Clinton would win the election and continue Obama’s lawless and anti-American policies. Only when that didn’t happen, did the whole Russia affair become a big deal.
