Standard vote loser Donald Trump has so many unusual, weird twitter rants that’s simple to simply normalize them and never concentrate when he actually goes off the rails.
Talking of going off the rails, there’s this little gem from at present:
Trump says: “Why didn’t President Obama do one thing about Russia in September (earlier than November Election) when informed by the FBI? He did NOTHING, and had no intention of doing something!”
Whereas that will seem to be simply one other loopy rant about and railing towards the investigations into his election exercise, let’s break down what’s actually happening right here.
Trump clearly realizes he can’t merely get away with claiming “no collusion” based mostly on the mounting proof. He additionally realizes he can’t falsely declare a “spy” was working inside his marketing campaign, so he’s resorting to now saying none of it’s his fault as a result of Obama’s FBI and DOJ didn’t warn him that Russian was meddling along with his marketing campaign.
Basically, Trump is looking for a solution to blame the FBI for not stopping his marketing campaign from the exercise they have been concerned in. Nicely, that simply fell aside for Trump as effectively.
So, let’s handle Trump direct query: “Why didn’t Obama and the FBI do one thing?”. Information flash, Trump, they did. NBC Information reported the next:
Within the weeks after he turned the Republican nominee on July 19, 2016, Donald Trump was warned that overseas adversaries, together with Russia, would most likely attempt to spy on and infiltrate his marketing campaign, based on a number of authorities officers acquainted with the matter.
We have now lengthy suspected that Trump would use the road of protection that implies he was too naive to know something about Russian meddling, which is precisely what he’s now doing.
