You won’t believe this unless you read it with your own eyes. Adam Schiff, the Democrats’ go-to guy on the Russia collusion narrative is actually laying some of the blame at Obama’s feet. And the mainstream media is actually reporting the story!
NBC News reports:
Top Democrat says Obama shares responsibility for Russia’s meddling
The Obama administration’s muted response to the 2014 Sony hack may have laid the groundwork for Russia’s meddling in the 2016 elections, a top Democrat argued Friday.
Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said the previous administration should have established a “more forceful deterrent” against potential adversaries considering cyberattacks against the U.S. or its institutions.
In late 2014 Sony Pictures confirmed that it had been the victim of a “brazen cyberattack” that led to the exposure of personal data of current and former employees and their families…
But the Obama administration shared some responsibility for what happened because of its response to Russia’s actions.
“We should have called them out much earlier,” Schiff said. “While I respect the motive in terms of the Obama administration, they didn’t want to be seen as meddling, the American people had a right to know what was going on and could be trusted to do the right thing with it. And they should have defended being more public and aggressive at the time, at least in my view.”
What’s next? Will Schiff finally admit that the whole Russia thing was a ruse to remove Trump from office?
