Trump destroys Obama's 'collusion' and 'obstruction' in blistering tirade

No definite arrangements in place for Putin-Trump meeting - Kremlin Key Democrat agrees with Trump: Obama should have acted on hacks
Sammy Stanley | 29 June, 2017, 09:09

The intelligence agencies said in January they had concluded that Moscow tried to tilt the election in Trump's favour, including by hacking into senior Democrats' emails and leaking them. The two leaders will be attending the same event in the same place at the same time, Peskov said, so "in any case there will be a chance to meet". To make matters more complicated, every meeting between USA and Russian officials in recent weeks has been treated as hugely controversial both within the press and in Congress.

"But both of those factors did not outweigh in my view, and I argued this at the time, did not outweigh the public's need to know", he said.

Trump has often expressed deep frustration over accusations that individuals in his orbit colluded with Russian Federation during the election and assertions that he may have tried to personally influence the FBI's probe into the matter.

Trump continued his tweetstorm, writing that the ongoing investigations into his campaign's ties to Russian Federation had not produced public evidence of collusion by his "people".

However, according to the Post's reporting, the administration was wary of appearing as though they were interfering in the election in order to favor Hillary Clinton; Trump at that point spoke frequently of a "rigged" election.

He told them that the experience will be better on PC, and that Xbox is choosing to focus on mixed reality or augmented reality. Spencer's comment does make sense in the perspective that the Xbox One X offers specifications that Sony can't now rival.

Trump's criticism of Obama has increased since The Washington Post published a detailed report about Obama's reluctance to speak publicly about, or retaliate against, Russia's actions after the Central Intelligence Agency informed him of them in August. "Focus on them, not T!". Obama ordered a review of Russia's actions and imposed new sanctions after the election. It's an wonderful thing.

Ding, ding, ding, if you guessed that last one - and the opportunity it gave President Trump to rail against the Obama administration - you would be correct.

In September 2016, FBI Director James Comey testified before the House Judiciary Committee that the FBI was investigating Russian hackers attempting to disrupt the 2016 election and that federal investigators had detected hacked-related activities in state voter-registration databases, which independent assessments determined were soft targets for hackers.

Presently, the FBI is investigating into the alleged meddling by Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Kremlin and Trump's campaign. "We all know that", Spicer told NBC reporter, Kristen Welker. "I think the Obama administration should have done more when it became clear that not only was Russian Federation intervening, but it was being directed at the highest levels of the Kremlin". They also hand intelligence confirming that the Russian goal was to defeat Hillary Clinton.

Candidate Trump later picked a fight with NBC News' Katy Tur, telling her to "be quiet" when she had pressed him on the stunning invitation or request to attack Hillary Clinton.
