President trump lambasted former President Obama on Twitter on Monday following his assertions that Obama was aware of the Russia plot and did nothing about it. He demands an apology for being accused falsely, hinting that former President Obama did not respond promptly to the allegations because he felt a response might favor Hilary Clinton. He also added that Obama “colluded or obstructed," referring to the elections. However, Trump did not clearly state who he was demanding the apology from or whom he was blaming Obama for colluding with.

Senior intelligence officials debunk allegations

President Trump has been greatly provoked by allegations that he interfered with an FBI investigation and that he connived with Russia to rig the 2016 election. During the Senate panel hearing last week, two senior intelligence officials hinted that Trump urged them to openly say that there was no communication between his campaign team and Russia during the elections.

The Director of the National Security Agency Adm. Mike Rogers and National Intelligence Director Dan Coats referred to their meetings with the President as uncomfortable but debunked the allegations that the President ordered them to interfere with the investigation.

The President’s tweets follow a news report by The Washington Post that connected the meddling in the 2016 elections to Russia and suggested reasons why the Obama administration did not take adequate measures to punish them for it.

The report hinted that the Obama administration couldn’t respond adequately when they got the news because they felt it could have given them a bad name.

At that time, President Trump was speculating that the elections were swayed to favor Clinton.

Donald Trump blames Obama on FOX News

Trump tweeted on Saturday that the public should focus their attention on Obama since he got the information about Russia’s intentions long before the elections.

Trump also lambasted Obama while speaking in a Fox News interview on Sunday. He suggested that the Obama administration did not confront the situation when they had the chance, basing his theories on excerpts from the Post reports.

In the Post reports, a top Obama aide said he felt the administration “sort of choked” while defending the administration’s decision to impose light sanctions and infuse cyber-weapons inside Russia’s infrastructure instead of implementing more drastic measures.

Amidst Trump’s criticism, questions on whether Trump will take retaliatory actions against Kremlin remain unanswered. Trump has reiterated that the allegations that he interfered with an FBI investigation and his team colluded with Russia to rig the 2016 election are a “hoax” concocted by Democrats.
