It looks like President Obama ordered up phony RussiaGate scandal
New York Post ^ | May 11, 2020 | ost Editorial Board

Posted on 05/12/2020 12:30:43 PM PDT by SJackson

RussiaGate is now a complete dead letter — but ObamaGate is taking its place. Just how far did the then-president go to cripple his successor?

It’s now clear the Obama-Comey FBI and Justice Department never had anything more substantial than the laughable fiction of the Steele dossier to justify the “counterintelligence” investigation of the Trump campaign. Yet incessant leaks from that supposedly confidential probe wound up consuming the Trump administration’s first months in office — followed by the Bob Mueller-led special counsel investigation that proved nearly the “total witch hunt” that President Trump dubbed it.

Information released as the Justice Department dropped its charges against Gen. Mike Flynn shows that President Barack Obama, in his final days in office, played a key role in fanning the flames of phony scandal. Fully briefed on the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation, he knew the FBI had come up with nothing despite months of work starting in July 2016.

Yet on Jan. 5, 2017, Obama told top officials who’d be staying on in the new administration to keep the crucial facts from Team Trump.

It happened at an Oval Office meeting with Vice President Joe Biden, intel chiefs John Brennan and Jim Clapper and national security adviser Susan Rice, as well as FBI Director Jim Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.

“From a national-security perspective,” Rice’s memo afterward put it, “President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.”

The only thing that I can say to this article is “Things every Freeper knew over three years ago.”

The New York Post should not pat selves on the back for this late report.

Ya, I'm damn tired of "conservatives" pretending that Comey, Clapper, and Brennan "went rogue".

They did this with the aid, consent, and direction of Obama and the Hillary campaign.

Yes. Something I’ve been harping on is that a lot of news stories are trying to make a big deal that Obama “knew”.

I think they are trying to reach back Watergate — “What did the president know, and when did he know it?”

But #Obamagate is much worse. Obama and Hillary were directing this. Coordinating, overseeing. They ran the thing. I’m sure Valerie Jarrett had involvement, but the FBI and CIA didn’t go “rogue”. They followed orders from the Oval Office.

The last line of this editorial:

“Say this about Obama: He knows how to play dirty.”

That's it? "What a naughty boy the previous inhabitant of the Executive Mansion is." Why did you bother?

I wonder what Vegas is offering as odds that Obama will eventually become ‘strange fruit’ along with several others from the OBumble Reign of Error ...

One can dream ...

Michele O must be having a conniption over this.
Obama's in HER spotlight. This was her time to let the world know what a (cough)
intelligent, attractive person she is, with her own Netflix movie out and a PBS show coming up.

She's been whining over how having kids got in her way-----destroyed her very own dreams.

Nevertheless, she became Obama's "equal" despite the setbacks.

=================================================

Equal, eh? So what role did she play in the Obama games to "get Trump?" Eh?

And what did she do with the $100 million Obama gave her "to teach Muslim girls" in Morocco?
The 100 mill was to be held by the Obama Foundation....til needed....cackle.

Have to say it will be tough for Biden to campaign while testifying. Maybe he can remain in his basement with an ankle bracelet.

It seems like at least a couple times a week I see something on the “news”, and say: “I saw that on Free Republic at least a year ago.”

Seems like some things the Ministry of Propaganda were deriding as conspiracy theories are now conspiracy facts.

Unfortunately, it’ll play out like this:
Watergate - resignation and infamy
Obamagate - off Scot free, book deals, Netflix deals, gazillions of dollars.

Maxine Waters let the cat out of the bag in 2013.
She said Obama had a massive database with everything on everyone.

He was using all the resources of the US government for political purposes.
NSA, CIA, FBI, IRS, all of it.
