Russia's goal of election meddling "stirring up chaos"

Everyone Knows Russia Will Meddle Again But Trump Doesn’t Care

President Trump pushed back Saturday against coverage by what he called the "Fake News Media" on revelations about Russian meddling in the 2016 election - saying the meddling began well before he ran for office and citing a Facebook official who said swaying the election was not Russia's main goal.

A senior Obama administration official has been quoted as saying the administration "choked" when dealing with Russian Federation.

Trump went on to tweet about the Russian Federation allegations over the weekend.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's indictment against the Internet Research Agency, other Russian associates and companies alleges that Russian entities did have - quote - "a strategic goal to sow discord in the USA political system, including the 2016 US presidential election, and acted toward that goal".

Could it be the salacious allegations in the Christopher Steele dossier, including, but not limited to, what happened in a certain room, once shared by President Obama and his family in the Ritz-Carlton and visited by Trump and others during the 2013 Miss Universe pageant? "So why didn't he do something about Russian meddling?" Trump said in a tweet on Saturday. Obama also ordered 35 Russian government officials in Washington and San Francisco to leave the country for "acting in a manner inconsistent with their diplomatic status and consular activities" and ordered the closure of two waterfront compounds the administration said were used for Russian intelligence activities.

President Donald Trump is again attacking his predecessor on Twitter, asking why he didn't do more to prevent Russian election meddling.

The Obama administration transferred the money to Iran in 2016, using non-U.S. currency.

Since the indictments were announced, those outlets have now switched their focus to the fact that Russian Federation tried to interfere with the elections, and that President Trump is not doing or saying enough to express outrage on the topic.

The Post's report also indicated that Obama may not have acted strongly because he, and every major polling firm, thought the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, would win the election.

The Russians used social media profiles to support both liberal and conservative issues. "We are quite divided as a nation", Goldman tweeted.

USA lawmakers - both Democrats and Republicans - and top national security officials in the Trump administration offered the same advice publicly and privately, often clashing with Trump's Twitter stream: the United States remains staunchly committed to its European allies, is furious with the Kremlin about election interference and isn't contemplating a preemptive strike on North Korea to halt its nuclear program.

But Mueller has not so far announced any findings that prove that the campaign colluded with Russian Federation nor alleged that the President is compromised in any way or indicated whether Trump has anything to fear from the special counsel's investigation.

But Trump has yet to impose those sanctions on Russian Federation.

Mr. Trump also claimed he - quote - "never said Russian Federation didn't meddle in the election".

The host seemed even more concerned with what President Trump did not do. Trump did authorize the sale of lethal military aide to Ukraine. The fact that Russians recruited unwitting Americans (and could set up US-based front groups) to aid in their interference does not make this a foolproof plan.

"I want you to get to 2 percent so Trump will be quiet", he said before swiftly moving on.

Additionally, Trump has taken on Russia's ally Iran with an explicit strategy to counter its influence in Syria, while Obama was seen as largely tolerant of Iran's agenda in Syria as he pursued the Iran nuclear deal.
