New Delhi [India], June 26 (ANI): U.S. President Donald Trump has alleged that the former administration failed to take action against Russia for election meddling, as it was confident of Hillary Clinton's win. "The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win.....and did not want to 'rock the boat,'" Trump tweeted on Monday. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win..</p>&mdash; Donald J.

"The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling. With 4 months looking at Russia ... under a magnifying glass, they have zero 'tapes' of T people colluding. There is no collusion & no obstruction. I should be given apology!" he added. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling.

Presently, the FBI is investigating into the alleged meddling by Russia in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Kremlin and Trump's campaign. (ANI)
