Since the early days of the Trump presidency, conservatives have been convinced that the previous administration—consisting of Barack Obama and his various appointees—conspired against the incoming POTUS. However, despite this deeply-held conviction, the evidence proving the corruption was always circumstantial at best. But now, former President Barack Obama has been caught in the act, and there’s concrete evidence to back it up. Documents released last week containing testimony from former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates paint a shocking picture. According to Yates’ statement, Obama was aware of the call intercepted by the FBI between former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak.
The New York Times even stumbled on some incriminating evidence of the Obama administration’s efforts to monitor the Flynn setup. In 2017 the Times reported, “Obama advisers heard separately from the F.B.I. about Mr. Flynn’s conversation with Mr. Kislyak, whose calls were routinely monitored by American intelligence agencies that track Russian diplomats.
The Obama advisers grew suspicious that perhaps there had been a secret deal between the incoming [Trump] team and Moscow, which could violate the rarely enforced, two-century-old Logan Act barring private citizens from negotiating with foreign powers in disputes with the United States.
The Obama officials asked the F.B.I. if a quid pro quo had been discussed on the call, and the answer came back no, according to one of the officials, who like others asked not to be named discussing delicate communications. The topic of sanctions came up, they were told, but there was no deal.”
“Obama officials.” Interesting. It was almost like the Obama White House was working with the FBI to set up Michael Flynn and helped create the narrative that became the Russia hoax.
Writing for National Review, Andrew McCarthy wrote, “So what did President Obama make of all this theorizing from the FBI and his ‘advisers?’ Well, intriguingly, as she was leaving her office for the last time, Obama’s top adviser, Susan Rice, decided that her last official act, moments after Trump was inaugurated, would be to craft — 15 days after the fact — an email memorializing Obama’s directive at the January 5 meeting:
‘President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming [Trump] team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.’
Hmm, you mean a reason like ‘Trump and his minions just might be colluding with the Kremlin?’
You’d almost think the Obama White House and its intelligence apparatus was weaving a political narrative out of . . . nothing.”
Yes, indeed, it would seem that the Obama White House created the fake Russia story that led to the two-year waste of time that was the Mueller investigation.
Instead of apologizing for his actions, Obama tried to turn the tables on the Trump DOJ and warned of the dangers they pose to our republic. This guy has no shame. It strains credulity to believe that Attorney General Barr and his DOJ are the ones that pose a danger to the rule of law. Obama should look in the mirror if he wants to know who’s responsible for the ongoing corruption in American politics.
During a call with his administration’s alumni, Obama said that “There is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic—not just institutional norms—but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk. And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places.”
The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board wrote, “Even discounting for Mr. Obama’s partisan audience, this gets the case willfully wrong. Mr. Flynn was never charged with perjury, which is lying under oath in a legal proceeding. Mr. Flynn pleaded guilty to a single count of lying to the FBI in a meeting at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017 that he was led to believe was a friendly chat among colleagues.”
Barack Obama is up to his eyeballs in this story. His fingerprints are all over the illegal spying operation against the Trump campaign and subsequent administration. The Russia hoax has taken on a new direction and the focus should now turn to the former Commander-in-Chief. The buck stops with the man in the Oval Office, as former President Harry Truman once said…and that man is Barack Obama.
With this new evidence brought to light, it appears that Obama was intimately involved in illegal activities. But will an “Obamagate” see justice served? We’ll have to wait and see.
