US President Donald Trump demands apology ex President Obama over Russia allegation

Share This
US President Donald Trump yesterday demanded an apology over the Russia investigation rocking his presidency, as he kept up a days-long attack on Barack Obama for his handling of intelligence about election meddling by Moscow, asdeenvibez reports.


Trump’s young administration has been consumed by allegations — under investigation both by Congress and the FBI, and furiously denied by the Republican president — that members of his campaign team colluded with a Russian effort to tip the electoral scales in his favor.

The Washington Post’s recent publication of a behind-the-scenes account of Obama’s reportedly hesitant response to the Russian threat has triggered a stream of angry tweets and televised attacks from Trump on his predecessor. Doubling down in a Twitter storm Monday morning, he charged that Obama had “colluded and obstructed” by failing to act after the CIA informed him President Vladimir Putin personally ordered an operation to help defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton last November.

“The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling,” Trump fumed, accusing Obama of holding back because “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,” the president tweeted, alluding to the Post’s description of Obama’s response. “With 4 months looking at Russia under a magnifying glass, they have zero ‘tapes’ of T [Trump] people colluding. There is no collusion & no obstruction.

I should be given apology!” the president charged. The account published Friday by the Post reported that the previous administration issued four warnings to Moscow — including one Obama delivered directly to Putin — causing Moscow to pull back on possible plans to sabotage US voting operations. But it said Obama opted to leave countermeasures for later, for fear of being seen as interfering in an election he was confident Clinton would win. After Trump’s shock victory in November, some Obama administration officials expressed regret at the lack of tougher action. “Wow, did we mishandle this,” a former administration official told the newspaper.
