"Well I just heard today for the first time that Obama knew about Russian Federation a long time before the election, and he did nothing about it", Trump said in an excerpt of his interview on Fox News' "Fox and Friends" released Friday.
Trump tweeted, "Why did Democratic National Committee turn down the DHS offer to protect against hacks (long prior to election)".
Another administration official said this of the feeling after Trump won: "The White House was mortified and shocked". You're mad about that your servers were broken into, you blame Russian Federation, you think that they, besides former FBI Director James Comey, cost Hillary Clinton the election, but you refused to let people who could have helped you through the front door? That didn't happen, and the Obama administration thinks Obama's in-person warning to Putin ("stop or else") kept him in check.
The assumption that [Hillary] Clinton would win contributed to the lack of urgency.
"Our primary interest in August, September and October was to prevent them from doing the max they could do", a senior administration official toldthe Post "We made the judgment that we had ample time after the election, regardless of outcome, for punitive measures".
Trump, however, raised his own theories.
The Post described Obama's response as "modest". In July 2016, the full scope of the Russian hacking operation became quite clear when thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee servers were published on WikiLeaks.
The report came as Trump on Thursday admitted he does not have recordings of his private meetings with fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, after fueling speculation for weeks of secret Oval Office tapes. He also ordered his deputies to safeguard the election and seek bipartisan support from congressional leaders to condemn Russia's actions.
Trump also claimed Thursday that Johnson "is latest top intelligence official to state there was no grand scheme between Trump & Russia".
Coach seeks a brighter beginning from Cameroon Australia's all-time top-scorer Tim Cahill could win his 100th cap. "If he plays tomorrow, he has earned it", said Postecoglou. Australia captain Mark Milligan levelled the score from the penalty spot in the 60th minute. "We were better today".
It's also not hard to believe that part of the calculus Obama made in not going public sooner was that he, like nearly everyone else, expected Hillary Clinton to win regardless.
The newspaper said the operation, still in its early stages, had been signed off by Mr Obama and authorised USA agencies to carry out the orders, even during the new Trump administration.
In the meantime, there are five investigations into Russia's election tampering, including the Robert Mueller-led investigation that's looking into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation or attempted to obstruct justice.
"Focus on them, not T!" he tweeted Saturday afternoon.
"Nothing like the extensive hacking effort and manipulation effort could occur without involvement", Sen. Jeff Merkley said Friday on CNN's "New Day".
"I wanted to make sure everybody understood we were playing this thing straight - that we weren't trying to advantage one side or another but what we were trying to do is let people know that this had taken place", Obama said.
"He had a specific goal to defeat (Democratic nominee) Hillary Clinton and that explains the huge coordinated effort from the botnets to the trolls", Merkley added.
Some Republicans defended Trump's legitimacy but expressed concern about another country threatening democracy in the United States.
