But now, Obama is finally speaking out about Trump’s work with Russia to intervene in our election. And he isn’t just going about it half-assed, either. He’s really telling the full story like it is! Up till now, he’s been walking the fine line between remaining neutral and putting the blame where it belongs.
But things are swiftly changing, no doubt about it. Now with only days to spare, the President is calling for an investigation, so at least the electors have all the necessary information if the voters didn’t. He had a recent interview that revealed a whole lot, and left few questions unanswered.
“Well, it’s not a rush. Keep in mind, when the DNC got hacked, we immediately assigned our intelligence community—our law enforcement—to investigate what had happened. And we determined—and announced—in October that it was the consensus of all the intelligence agencies in law enforcement that organizations affiliated with Russian intelligence were responsible for the hacking of the DNC materials that were being leaked. That was a month before the election. This was not a secret,” the president said.
“This was not a secret running up to the election!” exclaimed Obama. “The president-elect [Trump] in some of his political events specifically said to the Russians, ‘Hack Hillary’s emails so that we can finally find out what’s going on, and confirm our conspiracy theories.’ You had what was very clear relationships between members of the president-elect’s campaign team and Russians, and a professed shared view on a bunch of issues.”
