[Ed. – As DNC chair, Brazile shared questions with Hillary Clinton in advance of CNN debate. Why is Fox News Channel willing to overlook that deceitful act and treat Brazile as an honest broker of the news?]
“I think they did everything they could without sounding all of the alarm bells,” she said of Obama’s administration. The subject came up as Fox News host Dana Perino asked Brazile on “The Daily Briefing” about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report — something Brazile said should be a “wake-up call” due to its troubling findings about Russian interference.
If Obama did more on Russian meddling, she said, critics would have accused him of trying to help his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in her race against then-candidate Donald Trump.
“He was in a box,” Brazile said of Obama. “Perhaps President Trump is in a box,” she added, before calling for action to prevent future meddling. Her comments came as the Obama administration faced renewed scrutiny over spying on the Trump campaign.
Mueller’s investigation did not find sufficient evidence to formally accuse Trump’s campaign of collusion, although it contained details about activity related to that issue.
