TRUMP STRIKES BACK: The President USES OBAMA QUOTE to Slam Russia Meddling

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.20.18

President Donald Trump called-out his predecessor’s total inaction over allegations the Russian government was meddling in the 2016 presidential election Tuesday; using Obama’s own words to slam his administration’s “minimal response” to foreign interference.

Trump quoted former President Barack Obama on Twitter using comments delivered ahead of Election Day; with Obama telling Trump to “stop whining” and claiming “no serious person out there” would believe the Russians could impact a US election cycle.

“There is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections, there’s no evidence that that has happened in the past or that it will happen this time, and so I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and make his case to get votes,” he tweeted.

“The President Obama quote just before election. That’s because he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win and he didn’t want to “rock the boat.” When I easily won the Electoral College, the whole game changed and the Russian excuse became the narrative of the Dems,” he added.

President Trump’s comments come less than a week after Robert Mueller indicted thirteen Russian nationals for election interference; going so far as to organize political rallies and purchase millions of dollars of social media advertisements.

ADAM’S ADMISSION: Schiff Says OBAMA ADMIN to Blame for Russian Meddling

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.19.18

Liberal congressman Adam Schiff publicly admitted over the weekend that former President Barack Obama dropped the ball on Russian election interference; saying his administration was partially to blame for foreign meddling throughout the 2016 race for the White House.

Speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations Friday, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee spoke out about the Obama administration’s “minimal response” as accusations of Russian interference made national headlines.

“Russians are equal-opportunity malevolent actors,” said Schiff. “They’re not Republican and they’re not Democrats. They’re just designed in their foreign policy and their cyber policy to undermine the United States.”

“I do think though, that in fairness, some responsibility is attributed to the Obama administration for not establishing a more forceful deterrent. I think it goes back to the [North] Korean hack of Sony, which there was a minimal response. I think others around the world watched that,” he added.

BOMBSHELL: Obama Admin Spied on Trump Campaign Chairman During Election

Former chairman of the Trump campaign Paul Manafort was wiretapped by federal investigators before, during, and after the 2016 general election; fueling speculation that private conversations between President Trump and senior aides was intercepted by Obama officials prior to his inauguration.

According to Fox News, the wiretapping was authorized by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in 2014 as part of an ongoing FBI investigation over Manafort’s financial ties to Russia and Ukrainian officials.

The initial order expired in 2016 but was extended to early 2017.

Paul Manafort is a central figure in special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into allegations that Russian officials meddled in the US presidential election on behalf of the Trump campaign.

His home in northern Virginia was raided by FBI officials in July.

The revelation that the federal government wiretapped senior Trump aides vindicates comments made by the President earlier this year, claiming that Obama officials had been listening to his private conversations.

“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” tweeted the President in March.
