Obamagate Is Not a Conspiracy Theory

By DAVID HARSANYI

There’s no reason to ignore the mounting evidence that Obama administration officials were corrupt in their handling of the Trump–Russia investigation.

Those sharing #Obamagate hashtags on Twitter would do best to avoid the hysterics we saw from Russian-collusion believers, but they have no reason to ignore the mounting evidence that suggests the Obama administration engaged in serious corruption.

Democrats and their allies, who like to pretend that President Obama’s only scandalous act was wearing a tan suit, are going spend the next few months gaslighting the public by focusing on the most feverish accusations against Obama. But the fact is that we already have more compelling evidence that the Obama administration engaged in misconduct than we ever did for opening the Russian-collusion investigation.

It is not conspiracy-mongering to note that the investigation into Trump was predicated on an opposition-research document filled with fabulism and, most likely, Russian disinformation. We know the DOJ withheld contradictory evidence when it began spying on those in Trump’s orbit. We have proof that many of the relevant FISA-warrant applications — almost every one of them, actually — were based on “fabricated” evidence or riddled with errors. We know that members of the Obama administration, who had no genuine role in counterintelligence operations, repeatedly unmasked Trump’s allies. And we now know that, despite a dearth of evidence, the FBI railroaded Michael Flynn into a guilty plea so it could keep the investigation going.

What’s more, the larger context only makes all of these facts more damning. By 2016, the Obama administration’s intelligence community had normalized domestic spying. Obama’s director of national intelligence, James Clapper, famously lied about snooping on American citizens to Congress. His CIA director, John Brennan, oversaw an agency that felt comfortable spying on the Senate, with at least five of his underlings breaking into congressional computer files. His attorney general, Eric Holder, invoked the Espionage Act to spy on a Fox News journalist, shopping his case to three judges until he found one who let him name the reporter as a co-conspirator. The Obama administration also spied on Associated Press reporters, which the news organization called a “massive and unprecedented intrusion.” And though it’s been long forgotten, Obama officials were caught monitoring the conversations of members of Congress who opposed the Iran nuclear deal.

    The Kenyan Commie should be arrested, jailed and put on trial. Wishful thinking but it won’t happen, been waiting for Hag Hilary to be hauled away but that’s just another dream.
    President Trump should be on TV every evening and tell the country what is really going on, it would be to his advantage to show the corrupt, lying shysters caught on tape of their lies, stupid comments and traitorous activities. I sure wish he’d get aggressive and put these people in their place, I can’t understand his willingness to let this continue.

    And Durham and Barr aren’t going to do a thing about it. The entire Judicial system is fake. You can’t trust a Catholic priest with your son, you can’t trust a judge to be fair and partial and you can’t trust law enforcement to uphold their oath. The US uses fake democracy to push for wars overseas to spread the ruse of freedom while that same nation arrests citizens sitting on a beach, playing in a park with their kid, sitting on a bus with no mask, or standing to close to another person (whose your family member) and when it comes to voting, ballots are lost, thrown out or disqualified.
