Rep. Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.) on Monday blamed then-presidential candidate Donald Trump for the Obama administration not doing more to warn Americans of Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
MSNBC host Ari Melber discussed a new Wired report that revealed many liberals were upset at the Facebook social media website during the 2016 election because they believed that it was helping Trump get elected.
“Part of what the article reports is that there was almost a concern about not wanting to change too much of what people were seeing then because, like a referee that had been criticized for their calls, they had this thing that they were worried about, basically the allegations that they were conservatively biased. Do you buy that theory or do you see that as kind of a smaller thing?” Melber asked.
Swalwell said that he didn’t buy that theory and then talked about how lawmakers and voters alike didn’t appreciate how aggressively the Russians were meddling in the 2016 election.
