Huckabee On Russian Hacking Charges: ‘Get Over It’

President Obama should stop complaining about Vladimir Putin’s alleged attempts to influence the outcome of last year’s election, Mike Huckabee declared on Fox News.

The former Arkansas governor argued that the administration and other Democrats are putting too much emphasis on U.S. intelligence reports accusing the Russian leader of ordering cyber attacks to assist Donald Trump’s campaign. Russian hackers allegedly stole emails from the computers of Democratic National Committee staffers and Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager. They also attacked Republican officials’ computers, but did not release those emails to WikiLeaks, according to the CIA.

“The Obama administration has just freaked out over the election,” Huckabee remarked. “The reason is, they still believe everyone gets a trophy, that you can’t lose an election. Well, they lost. And they’re going to have to learn to get over it, because January 20th, Donald Trump’s going to be president, whether they like it or not.”

Huckabee suggested that Obama is keeping the Russian-hacking issue alive because he refuses to accept the election results; and does not want to acknowledge his own “failed” policies in the Middle East and Europe, as well as at home.

The former governor also blasted Democrats for ridiculing Trump’s call for a “reset” of U.S.-Russia relations. Huckabee noted that Clinton made a similar comment in 2009, as secretary of state, when she proposed a “fresh start” with Russia.
