Trump attacks Obama again, asks if he didn't want to hurt Hillary”

Donald Trump has accused Barack Obama of failing to take action over Russia's alleged interference in the United States election.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, left, speaks with then- U.S. President Barack Obama in Hangzhou in eastern China's Zhejiang province on September 5, 2016, in the midst of last year's presidential race.

The barrage of tweets comes a day after a media report detailed how the Obama administration's approach to take an action against the Russian government for its attempt to meddle with and influence the Presidential campaign was slow and cautious and how it helped the bid to politically damage Hillary Clinton and swing the election in Trump's favour. Did nothing about it. WHY?

In the final days of the presidential campaign a year ago, two Democratic senators asked President Obama to take action against Russian Federation for its election meddling. "They didn't want to hurt Hillary?" Throughout the fall, as November crept closer, Democrats saw many signs that their candidate would ultimately win: She had three strong debate performances against Mr Trump, polls showed her with an impressive lead most of the time, and Mr Trump appeared to have an incredible capacity for inflicting harm on his campaign just by making controversial remarks on stage.

By his final weeks, aside from warnings and rhetoric, Obama had approved only narrow sanctions and a plan to plant "cyberweapons in Russia's infrastructure" - if the next president so chose.

"It is the hardest thing about my entire time in government to defend", the paper quoted.

As he has with other newsmaking events, Trump used the article to argue that a months-long focus by the media, Congress and federal investigators on his campaign's alleged ties to Russian Federation has been misdirected. The president tweeted Thursday morning and Friday evening, apparently in response to questions faced by Johnson and the Post's reporting.

For some Democratic lawmakers, meanwhile, the bombshell report affirmed what they said they had long suspected. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., told CNN.

"Nothing like the extensive hacking effort and manipulation effort could occur without involvement", Sen. "Now we actually know: Yes, Putin directed it".

But it would be roughly two months - not until October 7, 2016, as Feinstein and Cardin pointed out in their letter - before the Obama administration publicly declared that the Russian government was behind the hacking of the DNC and other Democratic groups.

"The reality is, in two or four years, it will serve Vladimir Putin's interest to take down the Republican Party", Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., told CNN.
