Trump Accuses Obama Of Conspiracy, Contradicts Earlier Conspiracy Theory
President Donald Trump tweeted a conspiracy theory that the Obama administration launched the Russian investigation into the Trump campaign months before the 2016 election in an effort to stop Trump from winning:
Why did the Obama Administration start an investigation into the Trump Campaign (with zero proof of wrongdoing) long before the Election in November? Wanted to discredit so Crooked H would win. Unprecedented. Bigger than Watergate! Plus, Obama did NOTHING about Russian meddling.

However, this conspiracy theory contradicts Trump’s prior conspiracy theory in May 2017 that Democrats fabricated the Russia issue AFTER the election as an excuse for losing:
Russia must be laughing up their sleeves watching as the U.S. tears itself apart over a Democrat EXCUSE for losing the election.

Again, the story that there was collusion between the Russians & Trump campaign was fabricated by Dems as an excuse for losing the election.

…Trump/Russia story was an excuse used by the Democrats as justification for losing the election. Perhaps Trump just ran a great campaign?
