Earlier today the Justice Department announced the indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers for meddling in days, months (and years) leading up to the 2016 election. Rep. Nancy Pelosi is now responding by predicting President Trump and Republicans won’t be tough enough on Putin:
Today’s indictment of 12 Russians who participated in a massive, concerted operation to interfere in our elections shows that immediate action is needed to secure our elections – not more Republican sham hearings. #ProtectOurDemocracy pic.twitter.com/tFcVidvU6Y

Pelosi: "President Trump must demand and secure a real, concrete and comprehensive agreement that the Russians will cease their ongoing attacks on our democracy. Failure to stand up to Putin would constitute a profound betrayal of the Constitution and our democracy."

It’s hilariously pitiful how Pelosi and other Democrats are pretending this just became a problem when Trump got elected.
In 8 years Obama did that zero times!

My suggestion is that you have Barry Obama come testify as to what he knows and why he did nothing

Happened right under your nose, right under Obama's nose and he knew about it at the time. HE DID NOTHING and YOU DID NOTHING. Of course, you didn't know about it right?

So, why didn't the Obama DOJ not nip this in the bud?
This one's on you.

Yeah, remember when mitt Romney said this and Obama laughed at him?

I’m sure he’s going to tell them to cut it out- just like Obama did, @NancyPelosi

In 2016, then President Barack Obama said he told Putin to “cut it out.” We don’t recall Pelosi slamming him for going too easy on Putin back then.
