President Trump called out his predecessor’s complete inactivity on Russian election interference on Monday, asking why former President Barack Obama “didn’t do something” over reports of foreign meddling throughout 2016.

The Commander-in-Chief blasted Obama on social media; pointing out Robert Mueller’s indictment shows Russian meddling going as far back as 2014; a full year before Trump announced his candidacy.

“Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President. The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump campaign did nothing wrong – no collusion!” Trump tweeted.

“Obama was President up to, and beyond, the 2016 Election. So why didn’t he do something about Russian meddling?” he asked.

The President’s comments come days after the special counsel’s office indicted 13 Russian nationals for attempting to disrupt the 2016 race for the White House; alleging the foreign actors used social media and phony accounts to imitate valid American political organizations.
