(Newser) – President Trump has apparently read the Washington Post's bombshell report about Russian meddling in the November election that sent him to the White House, and he's dinging his predecessor for his failure to act, reports the BBC. He tweeted Saturday night: "Since the Obama Administration was told way before the 2016 Election that the Russians were meddling, why no action? Focus on them, not T!" That was followed by: "Obama Administration official said they 'choked' when it came to acting on Russian meddling of election. They didn't want to hurt Hillary?" Trump continued the theme Sunday morning with an appearance on Fox and Friends, saying, "If he had the information, why didn't he do something about it? He should have done something about it. But you don't read that. It's quite sad." (Read more President Trump stories.)
