President Donald Trump on Twitter appeared to acknowledge Russian meddling in the presidential election in a tweet Friday that attacked former President Barack Obama.

“Just out,” Trump tweeted Friday, “The Obama Administration knew far in advance of November 8th about election meddling by Russia. Did nothing about it. WHY?”

Trump may have been referencing a Washington Post report that the CIA had confirmed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s direct influence on his government’s alleged interference in the 2016 election.

Trump on Saturday tried to shift the attention on the Obama administration for Russian interference. “Focus on them, not T!” the president tweeted.
