The Obamagate scandal is reaching a critical mass.
Evidence of wrongdoing by top FBI and Obama administration officials is piling up.
But now William Barr took Donald Trump by surprise with this Obamagate announcement.
Attorney General William Barr addressed recent developments that showed Barack Obama and Joe Biden were in the loop on the FBI and Justice Department trying to frame Michael Flynn for colluding with the Russians.
President Trump and others suggested that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham subpoena Obama to testify.
In a press briefing, Attorney General Barr stated that while United States Attorney John Durham was conducting a criminal investigation into the Russian collusion hoax, it was unlikely Obama or Biden would become targets.
“As to President Obama and Vice President Biden, whatever their level of involvement, based on the information I have today, I don’t expect Mr. Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man,” Attorney General Barr told reporters. “Our concern over potential criminality is focused on others.”
Attorney General Barr explained that one of the reasons for this investigation was to end the Obama-era policy of using the Justice Department to target your political opponents based on flimsy cases.
“This is not good for our political life and it’s not good for the criminal justice system,” Attorney General Barr explained. “As long as I’m attorney general, the criminal justice system will not be used for partisan political ends. This is especially true for the upcoming elections in November.”
President Trump reacted to the remarks with surprise.
“I think if it was me, they would do it. I think for them, maybe they’re not going to,” President Trump stated. “I’m surprised because Obama knew everything that was happening.”
“I think it’s just a continuation of a double standard. I am surprised by it,” President Trump added.
There is no doubt if the roles were reversed a Democrat administration would try and investigate Donald Trump and jail him.
That’s why William Barr is trying to put a stop to the politicization of the Justice Department.
