In a classic case of psychological projection, President Trump took to Twitter on Monday morning and accused former President Obama of interfering in the 2016 election:
Why did the Obama Administration start an investigation into the Trump Campaign (with zero proof of wrongdoing) long before the Election in November? Wanted to discredit so Crooked H would win. Unprecedented. Bigger than Watergate! Plus, Obama did NOTHING about Russian meddling.

The facts, however, are not on Trump’s side. The FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign wasn’t even revealed until after Trump had been elected.
Also, keep in mind that FBI Director James Comey announced near the end of the 2016 presidential race that the agency would be taking a second look at Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. Comey said nothing at all about the investigation which had begun into Trump and his associates.
Others on Twitter were quick to let Trump know that his latest batch of alternative facts didn’t hold water:
Mr. Trump, Have you sanctioned Russia yet?

If they wanted to discredit before election so Hillary would win, then the dossier wouldve come out before the election.
The fact that none of it came out until after the election disproves your point, traitor.
