Trump keeps up attacks on Obama over Russian meddling

President Donald Trump tweets

We also know now that Russia's goal in meddling in the election was not to help Trump or Clinton win. So far, at least thirteen Russian nationals and three groups, who allegedly carried out misinformation campaigns in the U.S via Facebook and Twitter, have been pointed out.

"I'd advise Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes".

Trump also questioned on Monday why Obama didn't do more to prevent Moscow from interfering in U.S. elections, tweeting: "Obama was President up to, and beyond, the 2016 Election".

Trump also tweeted that the Russians were "laughing their asses off in Moscow" for the way Washington has handled the Russia investigations. Facebook itself has said that Russian accounts spent $100,000 on ads on its site during the presidential election and in the months afterward, a much smaller number than the $1.25 million the Russian Internet Research Agency was spending each month leading up to the election, according to the special counsel.

A Facebook executive has announced a new plan created to mitigate foreign influence in political ad buys on the social media platform.

The unproven narrative that Trump colluded with the Russian government to win the 2016 elections dominated news-coverage a year ago according to analysis by the Media Research Center.

"No doubt. I believe that Russian Federation interferes in all the elections of, lets say the security council for the United Nations, ' Caputo told Chris Cuomo, host of the 'New Day" program when asked about interference. "If you run an ad mentioning a candidate, we are going to mail you a postcard and you will have to use that code to prove you are in the United States", Harbath said in the National Association of Secretaries of State conference at the weekend. Rod Rosenstein who is the Deputy Attorney General said that the news did not contain allegations that "any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity". The four people indicted in the so call Trump campaign had nothing to do with the election.

He also accused Obama of changing his tune on the sanctity of the U.S. election process.

Twitter made a decision to deal with the effects of Russian meddling by deleting the tweets from Russian troll accounts.

Obama officials have insisted they took steps immediately to prevent the Russian interference, including a confrontation between Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the 2016 G20 summit in China.

Top intelligence officials told Congress last week that Russian Federation is already interfering in the 2018 midterm elections and held a classified briefing over the weekend for election officials across the country on electoral threats.
