Trump again attacks Obama over Russian Federation

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tried to finesse a weekend tweet from President Donald Trump blaming the FBI's Russian Federation investigation for missing a tip about the Florida shooting, saying the agency should not focus on a "hoax in terms of investigating the Trump campaign". I think one of the places where you guys seem to get very confused, and it seems to happen regularly - the President hasn't said that Russian Federation didn't meddle.

When pressed, Sanders said that president was making a point that the Federal Bureau of Investigation should not be focused "on something that is clearly a hoax", referencing the probe into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Obama also seized two Russian "dachas" or country estates, in Maryland and NY, that the State Department said were used for intelligence activities.

It has not yet penalized any Russian officials for interfering in the 2016 election, arguing the threat of sanctions has been enough of a deterrent.

Trump has also repeatedly downplayed and has publicly doubted Russian efforts to influence the 2016 contest.

"If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama administration, right up to January 20, why aren't they the subject of investigation?"

However, she has now apologized in a press conference. "It is my fault that I failed to keep track of team-mates behind me". Another said that it was, "truly a shame to see the athletes bully one another, and they represent the Republic of Korea".


Trump has raised similar issues about the preceding administration every day since Special Counsel Robert Mueller reported indictments of 13 individuals and three businesses in connection with Russian election activity.

Trump's Cabinet, however, has forcefully spoken out against Russian Federation.

In August, the State Department retaliated against Russia's expulsion of USA diplomats by ordering Russian Federation to shutter three diplomatic posts in San Francisco, Washington and New York City. That was after lashing out at Congress for passing the bill in the first place, which he said was worsening our relationship with Russian Federation and "very risky".

Obama has indeed been criticized for not doing more to protect the electoral system, even by fellow Democrats, but if his steps were insufficient, they do not illustrate complacency.

"National security adviser H.R. McMaster also said this month - in response to the Mueller indictment - that Russia's election meddling is "'now really incontrovertible".
