Trump Just Accused Obama Of ‘Colluding’ With Russia On Election Hacks

In a desperate effort to shift the focus of the Russia investigation, President Donald Trump is back using his favorite new strategy: Blame Obama.

In a series of ranting tweets, a delusional Trump on Monday said that President Obama had not “choked” in taking no action against Russia over their interference in the 2016 presidential elections, as a senior administration official told The Washington Post. Instead, Trump said Obama had “colluded” or “obstructed.”

Trump concluded that Obama took no action against Russia for its actions in the 2016 election because he expected Hillary Clinton to win.

“The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win…..and did not want to ‘rock the boat,’ ” Trump tweeted. “He didn’t ‘choke,’ he colluded or obstructed, and it did the Dems and Crooked Hillary no good.”

Trump’s wild accusations come as he is facing multiple investigations into whether his campaign colluded with Russia during the election. The Justice Department, FBI, Senate and House Intelligence committees are probing possible links between Trump’s team and the Kremlin.

The U.S. intelligence community concluded that Moscow interfered in the U.S. election specifically to help Trump win.

In an interview with “Fox and Friends Weekend,” Trump criticized Obama over Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, accusing the former president of doing “nothing.”

“Well I just heard today for the first time that Obama knew about Russia a long time before the election, and he did nothing about it. But nobody wants to talk about that,” Trump said.

The Washington Post reported that Obama was slow and cautious in responding to Russian election interference. Some officials were reportedly wary of taking action before the election, which was dominated by Trump making claims on the campaign trail of the election being “rigged” against him.
