Scott Jennings, CNN contributor and former assistant to President George W. Bush, called out Barack Obama in an Op-Ed on Friday, saying that the recently posted Mueller report makes the former president look “just plain bad.”
Released Thursday, the report details the results of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigations into Russian interference during the 2016 election.
“The Mueller report flatly states that Russia began interfering in American democracy in 2014,” Jennings wrote. “Over the next couple of years, the effort blossomed into a robust attempt to interfere in our 2016 presidential election.”
Jennings also noted that the Russian interference had not been unnoticed by the Obama administration.
“In 2016, Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice told her staff to ‘stand down’ and ‘knock it off’ as they drew up plans to ‘strike back’ against the Russians,” he said.
