While Trump was speaking on his second overseas trip as the U.S. President he made a statement to the effect that nobody knows about Russian interference with the 2016 election “for sure” during a joint press conference in Warsaw with the president of Poland before he met with the Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Russian Interference In 2016 Election
Making references to the role played by Russians during 2016 campaign, Trump said:
“Well, I think it was Russia and I think it was other people in other countries who also interfere, nobody really knows for sure what happened.”
According to an intelligence report, the Russian President singlehandedly masterminded the hacking of emails belonging to the Democratic National Committee and DNC leaders, and released them to sites such as WikiLeaks to increase Trump’s chances of winning the election.
Information collected by the FBI, CIA, and NSA, the U.S. national intelligence director in 2016 showed that Moscow was involved in the hacking of the Democrat Party email system aimed at boosting Trump election result.
Trump accused former President Barack Obama of his inability to stop the Russians from meddling with the 2016 election campaign, even though he was informed by the FBI only three months earlier.
Trump claimed that Obama had a lot of time, but he did nothing because he believed Hillary Clinton would win the election.
As investigations of Russian interference with 2016 election are still going on, Trump’s activities and his face-to-face meeting with Putin are being reviewed by the U.S. intelligence officials.
Recent reports also suggest that Robert Mueller, the special independent investigator assigned to delve into the allegations of Russian interference, has painted a bullseye on the entire Trump organization, including family and friends. This news comes even after Trump warned Mueller against investigating them, saying he’d be crossing “a red line.”
It looks like Robert Mueller isn’t afraid of Trump or his family – and that finally, someone has the balls to stand up to them and their criminal ways.
