Barack Obama gave an interview in the middle of the 2016 election that everyone quickly forgot about.
Now it’s more important than ever.
He was caught telling a lie that could open up a massive new scandal.
During the Clinton email investigation, Obama told ABC that there was no political meddling in any FBI investigation and that he never spoke to his FBI Director.

We know both of those statements are lies.
The FBI investigation into Trump-Russia collusion was infected with political bias.
And new text message showed that FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were briefing former Director Comey because Obama wanted to know “everything.”
That means Obama’s claim to have never spoken to his FBI Directors was a lie as well.
The investigation in question was later revealed to be about Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
That raised even more important questions.
What did Obama know and when did he know it?
The counterintelligence investigation was opened in July 2016; if the FBI thought the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia, did they inform Obama?
Did he receive any further updated on the case, especially when the Bureau used the fake news dossier to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page?
We will keep you up to date on any new developments which answer these pressing questions.
