The president asked why the Obama administration didn’t ‘do something about’ Russia’s cyberattacks.

President Donald Trump on Saturday blamed the Obama administration for the actions of 12 Russian military officials indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller for hacking the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 campaign.

“The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration,” the president wrote on Twitter. “Why didn’t they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September, before the Election?”

In another tweet, Trump asked, “Where is the DNC Server, and why didn’t the FBI take possession of it?” Deep State?”

Later in the day, Trump tweeted again about the former president and Mueller’s indictment, this time accusing Obama of not executing further countermeasures against the Kremlin “Because he thought Crooked Hillary Clinton would win” the 2016 election.

“Had nothing to do with the Trump Administration, but Fake News doesn’t want to report the truth, as usual!” Trump posted.
