The Senate Intelligence Committee’s top Democrat admitted on Sunday that President Obama “choked” when it came to dealing with Russia’s election interference, per Washington Free Beacon.

Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) conceded that the Obama administration mishandled Russia’s meddling prior to the 2016 election.

Check it out:

“Do you think that the Obama administration choked and should have done more when it knew that the Russians were interfering?” [CNN’s Fareed] Zakaria asked.

“With the value of hindsight, yes,” Warner said. “But I also know that most of the information, there were so many threads coming in from both signals intelligence, from human intelligence, from actions of the FBI, but no one really put the whole, all the pieces together until after the election.”

The question is in reference to comments by a former Obama administration official who told the Washington Post last week that the administration “sort of choked” when it came to dealing with Russia.

“It is the hardest thing about my entire time in government to defend,” the official said.

The article disclosed that Obama officials knew Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered meddling in the U.S. election and that the administration did nothing to combat the interference.
