President Trump is on a warpath this morning, raging against the hyporcrisy of Obama excuse-maker Jeh Johnson's comments. First, Trump asked a tough question...
By the way, if Russia was working so hard on the 2016 Election, it all took place during the Obama Admin. Why didn't they stop them?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 22, 2017
And then slammed the Democratic Nation Committe's seming ignorance...
...Why did Democratic National Committee turn down the DHS offer to protect against hacks (long prior to election). It's all a big Dem HOAX!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 22, 2017
...Why did the DNC REFUSE to turn over its Server to the FBI, and still hasn't? It's all a big Dem scam and excuse for losing the election!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 22, 2017
These are good questions, which, of course, will never be answered. As The Hill notes, Trump’s comments are the latest indication he does not accept the intelligence community’s unanimous conclusion — released last October — that Russia tried to interfere in contest by hacking political groups and spreading fake news.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Tuesday refused to say whether the president believes that occurred.
Ironically, Trump did have something positive to say about Johnson. The comments come as Trump is battling a special counsel investigation into whether any of his associates colluded with the Russian meddling effort, which the president has repeatedly labeled a “witch hunt.” Trump on Thursday pointed to congressional testimony from former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to back up his case...
Former Homeland Security Advisor Jeh Johnson is latest top intelligence official to state there was no grand scheme between Trump & Russia.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 22, 2017
But of course The Left will simply ignore that 'fact'.
