Key Democrat Agrees With Trump: Obama Should Have Acted on Hacks

  • Schiff says former president made ‘serious mistake’ on Russia
  • Trump says ‘quite sad’ that his predecessor didn’t do more

Representative Adam Schiff and President Donald Trump don’t agree on much about Russia’s meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections, but they agree on this: former President Barack Obama should have done more to stop Moscow from intervening.

Obama made a “very serious mistake” in not doing more about Russia’s intervention in the presidential election campaign, Schiff of California, the top ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said on Sunday.
