In the wake of a report from the United States intelligence community that says Russia intentionally tried to undermine the American democracy through hacking the 2016 presidential election, a top Russian politician is firing back, arguing that the only person to undermine the American democracy in recent years is President Barack Obama.
In a series of tweets late Friday, Russian Senator Alexey Pushkov criticized the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion about Russian hacking into the 2016 election, while offering criticism of Obama.
“The U.S. democratic process was undermined not by Russia, but by the Obama administration and mass media, which supported Clinton over Trump,” Pushkov tweeted, according to a translation from Russian to English by The Hill.
“The danger to democracy is within U.S. itself,” he added, accusing Obama of being responsible for Republicans’ growing trust of Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
