It’s amazing how quickly following the election of Donald Trump that the media became the tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy theorists they accused Obama’s critics of being.
They’ve been grasping at straws to prove any kind of connection between Trump and Russia. The only “evidence” for the claim came from an anti-Trump dossier that Buzzfeed published, and it quickly turned out that the document that entirely unverified…. and bogus.
It’s particularly amusing to see Russia as public enemy #1, especially because of the change in attitude it reflects…

If Russia did influence the election, it wasn’t with Trump’s blessing. And besides, couldn’t then-President Barack Obama have done something about if he truly thought America’s elections were being illegally influenced?
President Trump sought to turn the tables on the Obama administration Tuesday morning on the heels of a report saying they received “multiple warnings” as far back as 2014 about the Moscow meddling threat, suggesting his predecessor kept it under wraps because “he didn’t want to anger Russia.”
According to report just out, President Obama knew about Russian interference 3 years ago but he didn't want to anger Russia!

Politico reported that the Obama administration was warned between 2014 and 2016 that the Kremlin was building networks and operations that could be used to disrupt the U.S. political system.
One Russian source reportedly was quoted in a report saying Russia was operating in the U.S. and Europe and had “penetrated media organizations, lobbying firms, political parties, governments and militaries in all of these places.”
According to Politico, this report went to the National Security Council as well as intelligence agencies and the State Department in the spring of 2014.
While it did not specifically warn of a threat to American elections, one official told Politico that some felt the administration was quick to dismiss the possibility of Kremlin interference.

Well, if Hillary has anyone to blame, it’s Barack Obama! He’s the one who let Russia muddle in our elections!
Don’t expect liberals to accept this though. They’ll invent anything to hurt President Trump.
