Frustrated Dems say Obama botched Russian Federation response

Frustrated Dems say Obama botched Russian Federation response

Russian diplomats expelled from compounds in NY and Maryland in December left behind damaged materials that could have been used in intelligence gathering, officials have said. Why did you do nothing?

In her opinion, Trump's team "has been uniquely consistent on attempting to appease" Russian Federation over its alleged involvement in the Ukrainian crisis and the United States presidential election.

"I think it's very important to show no nexus has been proven between what Russian Federation or any other foreign government tried to do and the actual election result", Trump's White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day" on Friday. "Since the Obama Administration was told way before the 2016 Election that the Russians were meddling, why no action?" he wrote.

The intelligence shocked the Obama White House and put U.S. security chiefs on a top-secret crisis footing to figure out how to react. "I can not imagine that these very fine Republican Senators would allow the American people to suffer a broken ObamaCare any longer!"

"As we have made clear to the Russian government and others, we will not tolerate attempts to interfere with the USA democratic process, and we will take action to protect our interests, including in cyberspace, and we will do so at a time and place of our choosing", the Obama administration told the two senators.

Ivanka Trump: My Kids Call Air Force One the 'Candy Plane'
Ivanka Trump said in an interview broadcast Monday that she tries to leave the politics to other people and instead focuses on issues that are important to her.

Another reporter asked if Trump would use the G-20 meeting to say to Putin "that US officials believe that Russian Federation poses a risk to the 2018 and 2020 elections, and the United States would like Russian Federation to be on notice or on warning that the United States disapproves of this?"

Schiff said the sanctions should have come sooner and been stronger. Johnson also told the top Democrat on the committee that he had been concerned a year ago that he would be criticized "for perhaps taking sides" in an ongoing election if he publicly spoke out about the Russian meddling that he knew was going on.

Trump had predicted during the campaign that the election would be rigged.

Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union", when asked about reports that the Obama administration knew long before November's vote that Russian President Vladimir Putin was directly meddling in the 2016 presidential election, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that President Barack Obama made a "mistake" by not making that information public. "To me - in other words, the question is, if he had the information, why didn't he do something about it?"

On Friday, The Washington Post published a detailed post-mortem of the administration's decision-making process that showed the former president agonizing over how to prevent politicization of the threat - and arguably failing, critics say. "He believes Russian Federation was behind it, but he thinks other people hacked, too".

Climate change more important than partisan politics: Schwarzenegger
Schwarzenegger was welcomed at the Elysees Palace by Macron and after a tête-à-tête, he had the opportunity to meet Brigitte. It ends with Macron bringing out his new catchphrase: "We will deliver together to make the planet great again".

Trump used the weekend to deliberately stoke the partisanship around the alleged Russian interference in the election, apparently seeking to deflect calls for his own administration to address the issue and instead focusing attention on the Obama administration's failure to stop it in the first place. GOP leaders argued that talking publicly about the issue would sap confidence in the electoral system and cast doubt on whether the intelligence backed up White House claims, the paper said.

He, however, said that whatever Trump did was "a very disturbing thing, very concerning".

Schumer said he hopes House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., will help push the bill through, and he added that if the president vetoes it, he believes Democrats and Republicans will override the veto.

The document release followed a report Friday by The Washington Post saying those "modest" remedies resulted from months on wrangling within the Obama White House after the Central Intelligence Agency presented definitive evidence of Russian hacking and other activities. He should have done something about it.
