The U.S. President Donald Trump demanded that investigators apologize for looking into Russian interference and possible collusion with his 2016 election campaign, accusing his predecessor President Barack Obama of having “colluded or obstructed,” but he did not provide evidence.
In his tweet he has mentioned, “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,”.
It is still not clear as to who Trump was demanding an apology from or who he was accusing Obama of colluding with.
Russia has denied meddling in the election and Trump has repeatedly called the investigations a witch hunt.
The Obama administration formally accused Russia in October of a campaign of cyber attacks against Democratic Party organizations ahead of the Nov. 8 election. In December, Obama ordered intelligence agencies to review cyber attacks and foreign intervention in the election and to deliver a report before he left office on Jan. 20.
Trump has often expressed deep frustration over accusations that individuals in his orbit colluded with Russia during the election and assertions that he may have tried to personally influence the FBI’s probe into the matter.
