Virtually all of America is aware that the Obama administration was fully aware of the Russian hacking of the DNC and others, months before the 2016 election.
We also know that the Obama administration was aware of the Russian attempts to influence the 2016 elections no later than early summer of 2016.
We also know that the Obama administration said nothing to the public and appears to have done little to nothing to stop the Russians, even though earlier this week, former DNCV Chair Donna Brazile said the Obama administration did everything possible to stop the Russians.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told an audience that Obama administration failed to publicize the full story of the Russians.

Fox News – Rosenstein slams Obama administration for choosing ‘not to publicize full story’ of Russia hacking – Beleaguered Justice Department No. 2 Rod Rosenstein raised eyebrows Thursday night with a private speech in which he took a swipe at the Obama administration and slammed ex-FBI boss James Comey.
Rosenstein, the U.S. deputy attorney general who supervised the Mueller investigation, spoke out publically for the first time since the report was released, criticizing the Obama administration’s real-time reaction to Russian hacking and its decision “not publicize the full story” to the American people.
Rosenstein, who was speaking in New York at the Public Servants Dinner of the Armenian Bar Association, defended his handling of the probe and criticized former officials in the process. He also called out former FBI Director James Comey for alerting Congress about the investigation into Russian collusion at the height of the 2016 presidential campaign…
The way Rosenstein lashed out at the Obama administration is somewhat surprising.
Many, including myself, wondered about Rosenstein for the way he allowed Mueller to probe far beyond the original scope given him.
Last year, it looked like President Trump was about to fire Rosenstein because of the way he handled the Mueller investigation.
Is it possible that Rosenstein is taking this new stance in criticizing the Obama administration to help work his way back into the good graces of President Trump?
