LONDON – President Donald Trump blamed his predecessor Saturday for not doing more to prevent and punish Russia’s cyber attack on Democratic email servers in an attempt to influence the 2016 presidential election.

“The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration,” Trump tweeted, his first response to the indictments of Russian intelligence officers in the hacking scheme.

That indictment, unsealed Friday, accuses the Russian operatives of a far-ranging plot to disrupt the democratic process by stealing tens of thousands of emails from Democratic party officials and Clinton campaign operatives, and then leaking them via a website called DCLeaks.

Those leaked emails became the source for countless news stories portraying the Clinton campaign in unflattering terms as she was engaged in a hard-fought campaign with Trump.
