In case the world isn’t topsy turvy enough, now there are large numbers of Americans as well as the White House screaming Obamagate. CNN and MSNBC have stricken the argument down as conspiracy theory, and still they feel exonerated over the whole Russiagate fiasco. But Trumpers may not be wrong. Even the Washington Post is writing about how Michael Flynn may have been coerced into a guilty plea by the FBI.
Senate Republicans are planning to hold investigations on a meeting held in the Oval office on January 5th 2017 with then President Obama, Vice-President Biden, CIA director John Brennan, FBI Director James Comey, National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper with regards to Michael Flynn and his calls with the Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
This will most definitely be used against Joe Biden as he runs against President Trump in the fall, however it still isn’t known just how damaging the meeting was. The Trump administration is looking to declassify Susan Rice’s email that she sent to herself regarding the meeting.
William Barr has stated publicly that he doesn’t expect to bring any type of criminal case against either Obama or Biden, saying, “Our concern of potential criminality is focused on others.”
This won’t likely stop Trump from using it as fodder against Joe Biden’s challenge to his presidency, and is understandable due to the fact that these events expose real concerns about the Russia investigation and it’s legitimacy. Trump has called this, “the greatest political crime in the history of our country”, however it’s still unknown as to the extent of what was talked about in the meeting and like the Russia investigation will most likely end in a whimper.
In an age where a virus is exposing the inept nature of our political leaders, from Trump to Pelosi, this further shows just how underhanded and shady the entire political endeavor is in D.C. Congress and the White House have signed off on $4.5 trillion in bailouts to the wealthiest in society, not to mention new tax cuts for the rich hidden within the CARES Act, all while unemployment claims pile up and rents go unpaid.
As the pandemic rolls on and the 2020 election ramps up, we can now add another political scandal to the mix. Let freedom ring.
