Trump Tweets: Obama "Colluded Or Obstructed" In 2016 Campaign

Donald Trump

It wouldn't be a Monday morning without President Trump taking to Twitter to assert some nutty theory.

Now that he's heard the word "obstruction" so much in regard to himself being investigated by a Special Counsel, it seems like it's his favorite word.

This morning, Trump accused former President Obama of colluding or obstructing during the last months of the 2016 presidential election in regards to interference with Russia.

"The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win...and did not want to "rock the boat." He didn't "choke," he colluded or obstructed, and it did the Dems and Crooked Hillary no good. The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling. With 4 months looking at Russia...under a magnifying glass, they have zero "tapes" of T people colluding. There is no collusion & no obstruction. I should be given apology!"

Of course, it's complete nonsense that the Obama administration did "nothing." Obama expelled Russian diplomats, seized their compounds, and set sanctions in place for Trump to trigger.

Former spokesman for Obama's National Security Council, Ned Price, pushed back saying Trump's latest tweets were "nonsensical" blame-shifting.

"He’s attempting to pin on the Obama administration the very serious charges—namely collusion and obstruction—that federal investigators are examining in the context of his behavior and that of his associates," Price said.

He added, "This 'I’m-not-you-are' strategy tends to be a hallmark of elementary school, not presidential strategy."
