A former aide under the Obama Administration said he believes Obama could have done more on Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential election.
Former National Security Adviser Thomas Donilon said there is “no doubt about it” that Obama should have taken more action on Russia’s election interference.
“Given the fact that they were attacking a fundamental element of our democracy,” Donilon said in an interview with Politico, adding that the Obama administration should have been “pushing back harder and publicly.”
Donilon said that would have been a better course of action, frankly.”
President Trump has criticized Obama’s lack of response to Russia’s actions during the 2016 presidential election.
