On Tuesday, President Trump tweeted that his predecessor, Barack Obama, was aware of Russia’s attempts to meddle in U.S. affairs starting in 2014 and chose to do nothing about it.
Trump wrote: “According to report just out, President Obama knew about Russian interference 3 years ago but he didn’t want to anger Russia!”
Politico reported on Monday that Obama’s team had “multiple warnings” in 2014 and 2016 that Russia was looking to somehow disrupt the U.S. political system.
