Many would rightfully argue it’s much worse than Watergate, but it’s also nice to see the Establishment Media start to finally take note of just how stunningly corrupt and abusive the Obama spy scandal truly was/is.
“F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims,” read the headline on a lengthy New York Times story May 18. “The Justice Department used a suspected informant to probe whether Trump campaign aides were making improper contacts with Russia in 2016,” read a story in the May 21 edition of the Wall Street Journal.
So much for those who dismissed charges of Obama administration infiltration of Donald Trump’s campaign as paranoid fantasy. Defenders of the Obama intelligence and law enforcement apparat have had to fall back on the argument that this infiltration was for Trump’s — and the nation’s — own good.
…Has an outgoing administration ever worked to delegitimize and dislodge its successor like this? We hear many complaints, some justified, about Donald Trump’s departure from standard political norms. But the greater and more dangerous departure from norms may be that of the Obama officials seeking to overturn the results of the 2016 election.”
The question is rhetorical. The answer is NO. An outgoing administration has never worked so hard to delegitimize an incoming administration. Go back and review Barack Obama’s statements and speeches. Note how he promised over and over again that he would change how people thought – how he would transform them into activists for his personal political cause.
Then came Donald Trump. Mr. Obama could not allow such a powerful threat to his own transformative legacy become his successor and so Deep State Obama loyalists were charged with the destruction of a nominee and then the duly elected President of the United States.
Such hubris places Mr. Obama shoulder-to-shoulder with the likes of Stalin, Castro, and Mao.
Then Donald Trump did something Obama didn’t count on.
Mr. Trump fought back.
The vast majority of the Establishment Media continues to circle the wagons around Barack Obama as it seeks to protect him at all cost. Cracks are showing in their defenses though. A few members of Congress willing to fight to hold Obama-era officials is now a handful. This is the great irony of the 2018 Midterms. Democrats hoped to make them the path on which they could push for an impeachment vote against President Trump. Should the Midterms not to their way they could actually result in legal action against former President Barack Obama.
Imagine a world in which Donald Trump is the one to show Mr. Obama mercy by granting him a pardon thus securing Obama a place alongside Richard Nixon as among the most disgraced of modern-era presidents?
