When Obama learned of possible Russian election interference, what did he do? Go after the Russians?

NOPE. He only went after Trump and his campaign . Therein lies the 'rub,' causing an investigation of the investigators.

1. Never let a Crisis go to waste

Obama was Scandal Free because the media was totally invested in the success of the “First Black President”

His Administration was totally corrupt and the media knew it

Now there is a price to pay.....their credibility

2. Obama threw 35 Russians out of the country over it.

3. Yeah. Nearly two months AFTER Trump won the election.

Those 35 Russians were only a symbolic gesture made by the colored guy as he was being thrown out of the White House.

Nice try, Sully.

4. Which is why I said "threw them out over it". It was a retaliatory measure by "the colored guy".

Try not to be too obvious.

So do you have an answer why McConnell obstructed Obama doing more 2 months before the election?

6. You must not know the difference

between a "retaliatory measure" and a "symbolic gesture"?

"To be sure, Obama kicked 35 Russian diplomats out of the country after suspected election meddling by Russia, but only after Trump won the 2016 election. It is questionable whether he would have done so had Hillary Clinton succeeded in being the victor."

The subject of the OP is the former black resident of the White House and his efforts to interfere with a presidential election. If you wish to deflect away from that point, kindly start a new thread of your own.

9. Clearly I do know the difference but I'm not sure that you do.

"It is questionable whether he would have done so had Hillary Clinton succeeded in being the victor."

Pure opinion without a speck of fact. Not unusual for a righty.

"The subject of the OP is the former black resident of the White House and his efforts to interfere with a presidential election. If you wish to deflect away from that point, kindly start a new thread of your own."

I think the subject of the OP is wrong and if you don't like that then maybe you should not participate here and instead go find a right wing echo chamber that agrees with you and refuses to allow any other different views.

It's a proven fact that Russia interfered with the 2016 election yet the right doesn't want it investigated and instead squeals its a conspiracy against Trump.

Sounds like the right has a guilty conscience.

8. Nope

You've got the sequence of events backwards.

Step 1: Realization that Trump could become the GOP nominee

Note: The Obama admin knew that HRC was a potential time bomb, not knowing who had the emails and whether they would be dumped and therefore eliminate HRC.

Step 2: We've got to do everything possible to prevent Trump from becoming President.

Step 3: Develop a plan that eliminates Trump.

Step 4: Russia meddling can be useful.

Note: Election 2016.

Step 5: Now that Trump has won, we've got to hamstring and eventually remove him. Keep executing the plan.

Note: Pay close attention to 1/05/2017 meeting and 1/20/17 memo.
