Barack Obama crossed the line with a new hysterical attack on President Trump and while his liberal supporters and media fixers will believe it (or just lie for money and power) you should not.
Look, the worst thing you can say about Barr’s decision to drop charges against Flynn was it was a political decision.
Remember, Trump could have pardoned Flynn but chose not to – so this is not about the ability to do something but the appearance of why he did it. In short, a BS media debate that means nothing.
And if it was political, Obama and the left would have you believe the DOJ has never been political before.
Which is a lie. The DOJ has been or has been accused of being political since we formed it and even Barack was accused of politicizing the DOJ using his “wingman” Eric Holder.
So, if this was political it would not be this huge break with protocol. But if it is not political and Barr’s decision was to do justice, to right a terrible wrong then Barack Obama should hang his damn head in shame.
Look, this was a hit job, a set-up, and they got caught and it looks very likely that this goes all the way to the top, which is probably why Barack sounds nervous – he knows he may be sitting next to Comey in a court of law facing criminal charges.
“The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,” Obama said.
“And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free,” Obama said making another error – Flynn was not charged with perjury but a BS lying to the FBI charge.
In fact, the only person in recent history to get away with a perjury charge was Bill goddamn Clinton. Remember that, Barack? It is unbelievable that he thinks his supporters are this dumb.
“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,” Obama actually said out loud.
“And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places.”
And then Obama pivoted and gave up the game:
“So I am hoping that all of you feel the same sense of urgency that I do. Whenever I campaign, I’ve always said, ‘Ah, this is the most important election.’ Especially obviously when I was on the ballot, that always feels like it’s the most important election. This one, I’m not on the ballot, but I am pretty darn invested. We got to make this happen.”
Scare the rubes and in that way get their vote is Obama’s plan. But Obama is right on one thing – this election will decide the future of this country and we can either bring our jobs back home and put the brakes on China’s attempt to dominate the world or we can elect Biden and start teaching our children Chinese.
Exclusive: Obama, in private talk with ex-aides, says “the rule of law is at risk” in Flynn case and calls Trump response to pandemic an “absolute chaotic disaster.” Listen to the tape: https://t.co/HUOXFvPI1m
