"Why did Obama go soft on Russia? My opinion is that it was because he was singularly focused on the nuclear deal with Iran."

"Obama wanted Putin in the deal, and to stand up to him on election interference would have, in Obama's estimation, upset that negotiation. This turned out to be a disastrous policy decision."From "Mueller's report looks bad for Obama" by Scott Jennings.That's at CNN, which tells us, "Scott Jennings, a CNN contributor, is a former special assistant to President George W.
