President Donald Trump asked former President Obama for an apology on Monday, accusing him of doing "nothing" in response to Russian meddling in the 2016 election and asserting there was no evidence that Trump colluded with Russia. In the story, one official said the administration "choked" in its response, which included weighing the possibility the White House could undermine a likely Hillary Clinton victory over Trump.

In recent days, the former host of "The Apprentice" has made a decision to take a different course of action, this time attacking Barack Obama, while accusing the former president of ignoring warnings about Russia's hack of the Democratic National Committee. "They're responsible for this". "I should be given apology!" he added. Trump wrote in four tweets spread across about half an hour.

On Friday, the Washington Post reported that the Obama administration was informed that Russian President Vladimir Putin had authorized cyber attacks on the US meant to sway the election toward Trump.

The underlying irony of Trump's anger is that he has not even stood behind the USA intelligence reports about Russia's attacks, nor has he announced any of his own action over it.

"The administration needed to call out Russian Federation earlier, and needed to act to deter and punish Russian Federation earlier", Schiff said on CNN's "State of the Union" broadcast. With that being said, I'll go along with Russian Federation.

Schiff said the sanctions should have come sooner and been stronger. "What I urged at the time was he should have spoken out to the American people and said, 'This is what Russian Federation is doing, '" Schiff said. At the time, Trump was claiming publicly that the election was rigged against him.

A report says the Central Intelligence Agency first told Mr. Obama about the Russian President's order in August.

"But I have no idea why the Obama administration, except that they thought Hillary would win and it didn't matter, couldn't take action", she said. Conway said. "When the president found out about it in January, as president, he said it was a disgrace". "He can't be too mean because Putin has long arms and KGB thinking".

A former administration official who spoke anonymously to discuss classified information said that frustration is growing among foreign policy advisers over the failure of the White House to embrace a more cautious and critical approach to Russian Federation. The White House is lobbying against the bill.

"He was joking at the time", Spicer said of then Candidate Trump. That's a start, but it won't help protect a clearly vulnerable election system the American people will have reason to doubt from now on. "Knowing his relationship with Putin, they're saying 'why the heck is he opposing strengthening sanctions?'"

Many Democrats and some Republicans have spoken out against the Senate's healthcare plan since it was unveiled.

- The U.S. Supreme Court will allow some parts of President Trump's travel ban to take effect, and the court will hear the case this October.

Taking to his#Twitter account on Monday morning, Donald Trump lashed out at Barack Obama over the Russian investigation and scandal. He should have done something about it. But you don't read that.

"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.

"Obviously I don't have all the understanding of what they knew or when they knew it, but there does seem to be a bit of hypocrisy in terms of what they didn't clearly do if they truly believe all of this was happening", Spicer said. It did not respond to questions about the opposing views within the administration.
