Donald Trump Blames FBI For Not Preventing Parkland School Massacre

David Hogg, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., and several of his fellow students have been talking to news media outlets about the grief and horror that they and their fellow students are suffering since the February 14 shooting.

On the Sunday after the Federal Bureau of Investigation indicted 13 Russians on a range of charges related to the 2016 presidential election, Trump tweeted, "It was the GOAL of Russia to create discord, disruption and chaos within the U.S."- precisely what everyone in the intelligence community and even his own White House has been trying to get him to understand for more than a year. Nothing makes Trump more defensive than the suggestion that he owes his victory to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

President Trump then took another swipe at the ongoing Russian Federation probes early Sunday morning, tweeting "If it was the GOAL of Russian Federation to create discord, disruption, and chaos within the US they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams".

What we have instead is a president vulgarly tweeting that the Russians are "laughing their asses off in Moscow" for how we've been investigating their interventions - and exploiting the bad school shooting in Florida, and the failure of the FBI to properly forward to its Miami field office a tip on the killer - to throw the entire FBI under the bus and create a new excuse to shut down the Mueller investigation. "This is not acceptable", Trump wrote. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian Federation collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion.

The Republican president offered no evidence of any link between the investigation of Russian meddling and the FBI's failure to prevent the Florida shooting, the deadliest-ever at a United States high school.

Immediately, these students-turned-activists threw up some red flags. Morgan Williams, 16, tweeted. The FBI was also informed that the man had access to guns and could easily be thinking of carrying out an attack. "Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for president".

"They claimed that I was involved with something", he said.

Yates, who had been a holdover from the Obama administration, was sacked early in the Trump presidency for refusing to defend travel restrictions on several Muslim-majority countries. It only describes how Russians used social media to create splits among Americans and wage particularly vicious attacks on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton to improve Trump's chances of victory. The president connected one of the deadliest mass school shootings in history to the Russian Federation investigation.

The indictment claims that in or around May 2014 - prior to Trump's June 16, 2015 speech announcing his candidacy and still during the Obama administration - the Russian strategy included interfering with the 2016 US presidential election, with the stated goal of "spreading distrust towards the candidates and the political system in general". Why is Trump still not taking the Russian interference in our elections seriously, even after the heads of our intelligence services said Russia is going to meddle in the 2018 elections?

After Mueller's indictment was made public on Friday, Trump said it backed up his assertion that there was no collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation. Why did Trump bring in proven Russian sympathizer Paul Manafort as campaign manager?

Trump has never unequivocally accepted the U.S. intelligence report and has denounced Mueller's probe as a "witch hunt". "He is in charge of them and these people, what they love to do is push this off on bureaucracy and say it's not them", he said.

Of course, it's not the first time Trump has tweeted something controversial.
