Trump blames Obama on Russian meddling

24 February 2018

The President of the United States Donald trump fully recognizes that Russian Federation has not only tried to interfere, but, in fact, intervened and influenced the election of the President of the United States in 2016.

"I wanted to apologize for having tweeted my own view about Russian interference without having it reviewed by anyone internally", he wrote.

Protecting our democracy obviously concerns Trump not at all.

President Trump has been reluctant to enact sanctions against the Russian government passed by Congress past year. Yet Mueller's team made it clear that the Russians neither colluded with any US citizens nor had any material effect on the election's outcome.

The 13 named defendants are presumably in Russian Federation, beyond the reach of US justice.

This case might seemingly reach the first threshold, but nowhere in Mueller's indictment does he actually allege that the Russian government actually directed the ads be put up.

As Whedon said himself, it's a fascinating project and could serve as an excellent stepping-stone for a young female director . I do not feel that with the track record Warner Bros . now has with it's films, that it's a proper time for a Batgirl film.

The Kremlin said on Monday that us charges didn't prove Russian state involvement.

They tried to convince Muslim voters that Clinton was anti-Islam and convince anti-Muslim voters that she favored imposing sharia law. 56% overall believe Russian Federation hacked the Democratic National Committee's emails.

And while Facebook and Mueller's indictment focus on the Russian Internet Research Agency, some in Congress have suggested there could be additional "troll farms" working to infiltrate USA social media. What did we do to inform the public that your processing of your candidate, during the run-up to the election, was being tinkered with by the Russians?

In fact, the only evidence so far of any cooperation between a hired operative of a 2016 campaign and Russian officials is when the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid Christopher Steele to collect dirt on Trump from Russian officials.

Trump has made no secret of his displeasure with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling and allegations of collusion between Trump's 2016 campaign and special interests linked to Moscow. That's probably the point of it - to create a record of an episode that we should want to know as much about as possible and prevent from ever happening again.

Of course the Russians had some impact.

They got their goal early in the second half though, as Hector Bellerin placed the ball into a player packed box. "The second half was much better.

Their efforts added up to a lot of social media activity and a few events in meatspace, in which the Russians had the clever idea to organize demonstrators on both sides of our great American divide.

Even with best efforts, many acknowledge there is no way to be fully prepared.

More than a year ago, on January 6, 2017, the heads of our intelligence agencies issued a report that concluded "with high confidence" that Russia had interfered with the 2016 presidential election in a campaign ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Perhaps some clever political science professor will figure it all out someday. But no evidence has emerged of Democrats potentially being in cahoots with Russian Federation during the campaign.

The Russians didn't do anything to us that we weren't doing to ourselves, although we were doing it on a much larger, more potent scale. We now know from documents that he drafted a statement about the conclusion of the investigation even before he met with her.

Trump later reposted the tweet with the correct spelling of Sessions' last name.
