WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is again attacking his predecessor, suggesting he should have done more to prevent Russian election meddling.

Trump said on Twitter on Wednesday: "Question: If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama Administration, right up to January 20th, why aren't they the subject of the investigation? Why didn't Obama do something about the meddling?"

The president also took a swipe at his attorney general, initially misspelling his name. He said: "Why aren't Dem crimes under investigation? Ask Jeff Session!"

Trump later sent out an updated version of the tweet with the correct spelling of Sessions' name.

Trump has previously criticized Obama for not doing more to prevent meddling.

During the 2016 campaign, President Barack Obama called out Russia for political interference when much less was known about it and followed up after the election by expelling 35 Russian diplomats suspected of being intelligence officers.

    What a bumbling, panicky fool Trump is.

    If Obama had done more at the time, Trump would have accused him of tampering with the election and rigging the system against him. No win scenario. If Trump is innocent, why the panicked obsession? With Trump, does anyone seem to notice that the emperor has no clothes?

    Why does Trump have so many people around him pleading guilty about working with the Russians or connected to Russian oligarchs?
