Mueller Indictment Shows Obama Administration Failed to Stop Alleged Russian Threat

The indictment of Russian nationals and entities for alleged attempts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election represents a major intelligence failure on the part of the Obama administration, which was warned about the purported Russian threat since at least 2014.
According to numerous mainstream news media reports citing U.S. officials, the Obama administration did not take sufficient action to contend with the alleged Russian threat. Some former Obama administration officials described the White House as being reluctant to contend with Russia’s alleged domestic disruption plots.
The indictment in question was announced Friday by the Justice Department’s special counsel under Robert Mueller. The 37-page indictment of 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities charges that since 2013 Russian agents engaged in a campaign of deception designed to influence domestic U.S. politics and sow discord among the population. Almost the entire nearly three-year scheme took place under the Obama administration.
The cases cited in the indictment reportedly didn’t influence the election. The scheme largely involved infiltrating social media groups while posing as Americans and attempting to spread disinformation and even plan some local rallies. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein emphasized, “There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.”

Um . . . . ,. ,

Why is Trump failing to do anything?

THAT is the question before us.

Obama is gone.

Trump has a man crush on Putin and/or is being held hostage by him

THAT is why Trump has done nothing, and will DO NOTHING to stop Putin.

This interference, as McCain said, is an act of war. But Trump doesn't care.
