Who helped Barack Obama avoid the taint of Chicago corruption?
American Thinker ^ | June 1, 2016 | Lee Cary

How did Barack Obama emerge from Chicago in 2008 untainted by political corruption?

His rise to power began at the 2004 Democratic Party Convention when Illinois State Senator Barack Obama was catapulted onto the national stage by the alluring force of his oratory.

The gist of the article is the FBI had a mole in Rezko's office while Obola was there, having numerous meetings with Rezko, meetings Obola denied. That mole may well have heard incriminating conversations between Rezko and Obola, or Rezkko, Obola, and Blagojevich. If so, the US Attorney in Chicago at the time, Patrick Fitzgerald, who is also a close friend of James Comey, the current FBI Director, may have covered them up to assist Obola.

Why would this be coming out now? Could the Witch be firing a first shot across the bow at Obola? Time to buy popcorn.

Obama was never vetted and the national media gave him a free and easy pass into the WH.

The national media is “sleazy!”

Hillary is vetted and she’s getting a free pass anyway. It would not matter if they vetted Obama.

Obama was community organizer in a community controlled by black muslim street Gang founded by a Mexican drug cartel. Jesse Robinson Jacksons half bro (Noah) is doing life for his involvement. That’s Robinson as in Michelle R O. She spent so much time in JJ house the siblings called her Sis They were all close until Noah got busted
Rezko first job in USA was managing Cassius Clay —(conversion to Islam. ) He was employed by FERRETCON. (Who also converted the street gang to Islam in mass) CON also helped finance the gangs domestic terrorism thru Kadaffi
Plan for terrorism was very similar to BA s plan but nothing was officially connected
All just friends in the neighborhood
This article is very poorly investigated. The material is out there. We have over 700 posts here on FR

Yup, the main stream media

At the time, right after the election but before Obama even took office, Patrick Fitzgerald explicitly stated that he rolled up an important investigation prematurely because there was a crime involving President elect Obama in progress and he did not want to catch the President Elect of the United States in serious criminal political corruption, ie trading of political favors from Obama, the soon to be President in return for the Illinois Gov appointing the Senate replacement of Obama’s personal choice, before Beam even took office

The media gave Obama a pass

... “Blago’s” arrest came just as he was about to meet with someone to negotiate a bribe in exchange for appointing then-U.S. Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. to complete President Obama’s senatorial term.

On the day Blago was arrested, the agent in charge of the Chicago F.B.I. Office said, “If [Illinois] isn’t the most corrupt state in the United States, it is certainly one hell of a competitor.” Jackson, Co-Chair of President-Elect Obama’s campaign, was later arrested, along with his wife, and sentenced, in August 2013, to 30 months in jail for stealing $750,000 from his own campaign fund.

One year before Obama was inaugurated President, Antoin “Tony” Rezko, a key fundraiser for both Obama and Blagojevich, and one of three core members of Obama’s 2004 senatorial campaign finance committee, was arrested by F.B.I. agents acting on evidence gathered by the USA in Chicago. Three years later, Rezko was sentenced to 10.5 years in prison.

One more example of the American press standing with criminals. The New York Times didn't gave a damn about this story at the time ... to this day they would find it more offensive that Donald Trump didn't have the right 'tone'. Same with Morning Joe... our so called 'elites' betrayed the truth Americans put in them... disgusting. Trump has their number...

He was covered by the “American” press, also.

Being from Illinois, I am aware of this possibility, but I do not have it sourced. Do you, as your post appears to capture or contain words spoken by Fitzgerald?

There were a bunch of very telling posts about Chicago and Obama’s involvement with the seamier side of Chicago politics but that was years ago.

And as usual the suck ups in the liberal elite press did their best to sit on the stories... you know - liberal elite hatred of traditional Americans... and all...
