Trump blames Obama for Russian hacking of DNC

United States President Donald Trump blamed his predecessor Barack Obama for Russia's alleged hacking activities.

"The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administrations. Why didn’t they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September, before the Election?" Trump tweeted. "....Where is the DNC Server, and why didn’t the FBI take possession of it? Deep State?" he added.

On Friday, the US announced that 12 Russian intelligence officers were charged for hacking into the computers of the Democratic National Committee. The charges include conspiracy to commit computer crimes, aggravated identity theft and conspiracy to launder money. Moscow called the allegations "unsubstantiated" and claimed the indictments were meant to "spoil the atmosphere" ahead of Trump's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on July 16.
