As you’re well aware, Democrats are sounding the “Russia” alarm over a bunch of stuff that happened when Obama was still president:
WATCH: Jason Kander delivers the perfect analogy for why it's patriotic, not partisan, to protect America's democracy. The Russia government’s efforts to disrupt our electoral process have grave implications for our democracy. pic.twitter.com/eYFyMoJIle

Top Democrats fear Russia will interfere in 2018 midterm elections https://t.co/r794vP6mc1

If there’s no “blue wave” in November, the Dems will blame Russia instead of their open borders, abortion cheering, tax cut-slamming messaging that middle America finds repugnant, but I digress.
For an explanation why Russia may have felt emboldened, maybe all we need to do is look at what the party in power was saying about them a few years ago. Do these sound like people who believed Russia was a threat to the Republic?
Pres. @BarackObama in 2012: "Gov. Romney, I'm glad that you recognize that Al Qaeda is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia… The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back." pic.twitter.com/pknOWHeNjm

There's no way Russia would have done anything to us. Hillary solved all of our problems with them. She hit the 'reset' button. Remember: pic.twitter.com/Q3pRIeJgTh

And let’s not forget Obama’s “more flexibility” promise that Medvedev said he’d “transmit to Vladimir”:
And even though the Obama administration knew about Russia’s meddling in 2016 (Obama said he told Putin to “cut it out”), no Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, thought it was a big deal because they were oh-so-certain that she was going to trounce Trump in the election:

Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election. By doing that, he’s threatening our democracy.

The fact is that if Hillary Clinton won nobody would even be talking about Russia’s meddling (that’s been going on for decades) right now.
