SEAN HANNITY: President Obama was warned about Russian meddling - and did nothing

The full indictment, released on Friday, said that a Russian propaganda arm funded by the businessman, Evgeny Prigozhin, oversaw a criminal and espionage conspiracy to tamper in the 2016 United States presidential campaign to support Donald Trump and disparage Hillary Clinton. "That's because he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win and he didn't want to 'rock the boat, '" Trump wrote in a follow-up post.

Trump, on Tuesday, continued to take aim at Obama and Democrats, saying they only became concerned with the allegations of Russian interference in the presidential election after his victory against Hillary Clinton.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that his policy toward Russian Federation has been "much tougher" than that of his White House predecessor, Barack Obama.

Cuccinelli calls the forensic efforts of Mueller's investigation "impressive", given the scope of the "vast investigative effort that went on unseen by the American public or the media" in indicting the Russian nationals for meddling in the 2016 election.

Then he brought up the 'Internet Research Agency, ' the notorious Russian troll farm prosecutors say were behind the meddling, with a budget of more than $1 million per month.

The president, in a series of morning tweets, criticized former President Barack Obama's handling of foreign policy issues involving Russian Federation, including Crimea, Syria "and so much more". In the Middle East, Russia is more influential than ever and the U.S.is abandoning its key democratic allies.

Trump claims in a second tweet Tuesday that he's been much tougher on Russian Federation than Obama, saying "just look at the facts".

The Facebook executive supported defended his company through the tweets stating that the Russians acquired ads on the social platform but that they were not necessarily used to sway the elections. However, the growing evidence that has been revealed in the last few weeks has indicated otherwise which has forced President Donald Trump to drastically change his tack on the issue.

Stone said Facebook was also able to detect and remove "tens of thousands" of fake Facebook pages in advance of French, German and British elections a year ago using improved machine learning techniques.

Welker asked Sanders whether Trump finally acknowledges Vladimir Putin's interference in the election after Robert Mueller announced indictments against several Russians.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders engaged in heated remarks with multiple members of the press corps on Tuesday. On its face, this indictment and its announcement was not aimed at Trump and reached a nonpartisan conclusion, which is why Trump initially quoted Rosenstein's announcement in a tweet.
