Good Question: Why Didn’t Obama Stop The Russian Interference

Written by Kevin Fobbs on June 22, 2017

Russia, Russia, Russia. For democrats who love to obsess over the word, one would think that it should have been the Achille’s heel of President Donald’s Trump’s still new presidency. Yet, after the stunning defeat in the recent Georgia congressional special election, it should be crystal clear that fake news and even more fake controversies do not a winning platform make.

So, the president as well as millions of Americans in the nation’s heartland have to be wondering why this Russian controversy which began under former President Obama was not dealt with then. This is only front-page news in the minds of the occupants of the Washington D.C. swamp and in the newsrooms of the alphabet soup mainstream media.

The facts do not lie. Or as Obama famously quipped, “There is no there, there!”

The president correctly pointed out the “Dem HOAX” that is being drummed up daily in newscast after newscast on CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, and local affiliate outlets across America. He stressed in several recent tweets: Why did the Obama administration failed to stop the alleged interference by Russia during the 2016 presidential election if the consequences were so dire?

President Trump was crystal clear when he asked in a Thursday tweet, “By the way, if Russia was working so hard on the 2016 Election, it all took place during the Obama Admin,” Trump tweeted Thursday. He added, “Why didn’t they stop them?”

Just consider for a moment the millions and millions of libelous words of accusations that have been leveled at Trump which has been done to delegitimize his presidency. Yet, not a whisper has been mentioned about what the former Obama administration said or did to prevent or even warn the American public about what the Russians were allegedly attempting to do to attack the electoral system of the nation.

It should be revealing that when former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson testified before a Congressional committee concerning the alleged Russian interference, he was openly evasive about the Obama administration’s efforts to prevent election year meddling. Instead, the man who was at the center of the nation’s intelligence operation could only offer the tepid excuse that coming out publicly “might in and of itself be challenging the integrity of the election process itself,” according to The Daily Caller.

For all of the Democrat leaders on Capitol Hill’s hand wringing and pronouncements that the literal sky would be falling down on America’s election system, where is Obama’s statements and testimony before Congress. Since he was so “transparent” with his presidency, then he should be more than willing to sit under the hot lights of Senate and House Intelligence Committee hearings to say under oath, what he knew, when he knew it and what his administration did about it.

If the integrity of the election process in America was so seriously challenged in 2016, and according to Johnson, the Democrat National Committee was made aware of it by his department, why did they ignore him. He admitted in testimony to the Committee that the DNC refused to turn over servers to the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation after they said they were hacked, reported The Daily Caller.

Was the DNC trying to hide something when they refused the assistance of the best law enforcement team on planet Earth. Or as President Trump succinctly tweeted. “…Why did the DNC REFUSE to turn over its Server to the FBI, and still hasn’t? It’s all a big Dem scam and excuse for losing the election!”
