Barack Obama thought he got away with the crime of the century.
No one was set to hold his administration accountable for scheming to frame Donald Trump for Russian collusion.
But then Donald Trump wiped the smile off Barack Obama’s face with one shocking announcement.
Donald Trump announced that Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats was stepping down and would be replaced by Texas Congressman John Ratcliffe.
Ratcliffe sits on the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees and helped expose the Obama Deep State’s treasonous plot to try and oust Donald Trump.
And in what may be a hint of what is to come once the Senate confirms Ratcliffe, Ratcliffe told Fox News Channel’s Maria Bartiromo that the Obama administration committed crimes during the 2016 election.
Ratcliffe drew attention last week for the way he confronted Robert Mueller at his hearings before Congress, attacking the way he carried out his duties as special counsel and the Trump-Russia investigation. And on Sunday, he tore into Democrats by saying they “accused Donald Trump of a crime and then tried to reverse engineer a process to justify that accusation.”
“What I do know as a former federal prosecutor is it does appear that there were crimes committed during the Obama administration,” Ratcliffe said. While he said he was “not going to accuse any specific person of any specific crime,” Ratcliffe continued to speak of numerous alleged illegalities involving James Comey, Glenn Simpson, Bruce Ohr, and Obama officials who committed a “felony” by allegedly leaking Michael Flynn’s classified phone transcripts.
“The only place we can get the answers is from the Justice Department right now. The American people want that. Their faith and trust has been shaken in our Justice Department, and the only way to get that back is for there to be real accountability with a very fair process. Again, I are supreme confidence in Bill Barr’s ability to deliver that and at the end of the day, wherever the outcome may be, as long as we know that the process was fair, the evaluation was fair, justice will be done.”
Ratcliffe’s nomination – along with the work already being done by Attorney General William Barr – shows that Donald Trump is finally getting around to vanquishing the last remnants of Barack Obama’s Deep State.
And Trump supporters believe this is happening not a moment too soon.
