Friday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin took a deeper look into how President Obama’s administration permitted Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 election to go on unimpeded.

Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, reportedly gave a “stand down” order on developing cyber-espionage countermeasures against the Russians because President Obama did not approve them.

“That is the sickening irony, ladies and gentlemen,” Levin said. “That it was Obama and his people who refused to fight back against the Russians. It’s Obama and his people that turned intelligence agencies and law enforcement against the Republican nominee for president of the United States in order to help the Democrat nominee.”

Here’s the crucial point from the report Levin read:

At one pivotal point during the presidential campaign, Susan Rice directly told the White House director of cybersecurity Michael Daniel to cease and desist from developing further technological options to thwart apparent Russian attempts to create havoc in the digital elections infrastructure.

Why wouldn’t the Obama administration act to stop the Russians? Because, in Levin’s opinion, Obama felt Hillary Clinton would be elected president of the United States and did not want the American people to think her election had been fraudulent.

What’s more, Susan Rice sent an email to herself “providing political cover” for Obama, according to the report, “regarding a meeting on Russian election interference with former FBI Director James Comey, then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and former Vice President Joe Biden.”

“This is obviously an attempt … to create a false record,” Levin said. The email was written after Obama’s meeting with Comey, he pointed out. He called on investigators to “put the screws to Rice.”

“In my humble opinion, she’s obstructing and she’s covering up,” Levin concluded.
