Did President Obama conspire against Trump during the 2016 election?

Claim: Many Vietnamese-Americans believe President Donald Trump’s claim that President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton approved a federal disinformation campaign to tie Trump to Russia.
Rating: This claim is FALSE. This claim, which is the basis of the Obamagate conspiracy theory, is not based on U.S. intelligence sources. It’s based on unverified rumors from Russian intelligence, with no supporting evidence. It also draws attention away from a Senate Intelligence report that said that Russia did interfere in the 2016 election with the goal of electing Trump. Russia is currently interfering in the 2020 election.
