The walls are closing in on Barack Obama.
And as the bad news overwhelms Obama the former President is lashing out.
And Barack Obama was caught on tape saying one thing about a crime that ruined him.
In a virtual teleconference meeting of the Obama Alumni Association, former President Barack Obama was caught on tape fuming about the Justice Department filing a motion to dismiss the criminal charges against former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
“The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,” Obama ranted.
Obama claimed the Justice Department acting on the fact that the FBI set up a trap for Flynn as part of a political vendetta somehow eroded what America stood for.
“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. 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 former President fumed.
Obama falsely claimed that Flynn pled guilty to perjury.
In fact, Robert Mueller pressured Flynn into pleading guilty to lying to the FBI in a January 24 interview in the White House about his phone conversations with the Russian Ambassador during the presidential transition.
Obama was also wrong in that there was no precedent for someone getting away with perjury.
In fact, Bill Clinton perjured himself in his testimony during Paula Jones’ sexual harassment lawsuit and escaped scot-free.
But what really got Obama’s goat was the fact Flynn escaped the destruction Obama targeted him for and that Obama’s role in the caper was revealed.
Obama’s hatred for Flynn dates back to Flynn’s time serving as the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency.
Flynn warned Congress that the Obama administration did not take the threat of radical Islam seriously so Obama fired him.
As part of the Justice Department’s filing to dismiss the charges against Flynn, DOJ lawyers revealed that then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates testified that she learned about Flynn’s call with the Russian Ambassador from President Obama himself during a January 5, 2017, Oval Office meeting that was also attended by National Security Advisor Susan Rice, Vice President Joe Biden, and FBI Director James Comey.
Yates revealed that in Obama’s presence Comey described how the FBI could use the 1799 Logan Act – which has never been used to successfully prosecute an American and that many experts believe is unconstitutional – to entrap Flynn.
Prior to this meeting corrupt FBI agent Peter Strzok informed the FBI agents investigating Flynn to keep the investigation into Flynn colluding with the Russian open even though they found no evidence.
Obama’s anger was over his political enemy escaping the trap Obama carefully laid for him and for Obama being caught red-handed in the act of trying to frame a decorated 33 year veteran of the United States military for being a traitor.
