Obama wimps out on what media calls the 'crime of the century'

Washington Post:
Obama’s secret struggle to punish Russia for Putin’s election assault

In political terms, Russia’s interference was the crime of the century. It was a case that took almost no time to solve and was traced to Russian President Vladimir Putin. But because of the ways President Barack Obama and President Trump handled it, the Kremlin has yet to face severe consequences. Through interviews with more than three dozen current and former U.S. officials, The Post tells the inside story of how the Obama administration handled the Kremlin’s meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.
The story buries the real lead near the end of the story where they admit that the "crime of the century" had no effect on the outcome of the election.   This appears to be another attempt by the media to keep the Russian angle alive in their complicity in a coup attempt against Trump since their collusion narrative has been totally discredited.

Apparently, Obama was a source for some of the material in the story assigning himself the role of a brave hero.  It is reminiscent of his attempt to pretend that the order to kill Bin Laden was a "gutsy call" in the words of his Vice President.

So story also hints at the sources and methods of US intelligence collection against the Russians which appears to be a much more dangerous revelation than that alleged to have been revealed by Trump on the ISIS laptop bomb.  It suggests that the US has a source within the Kremlin who is reporting on Putin's private conversations to order the meddling in the election.

Rush Limbaugh does a takedown on this story.
