Barack Obama’s administration was the exact opposite of transparent. 44 made mistake after mistake and his team had to keep lying and covering for him – with the help of the MSM, of course.
What was to be expected of a former community organizer and freshman U.S. senator?
Now, House Republicans are investigating Obama’s FBI and DOJ departments for corruption.
The politicization of Obama’s Justice Department and FBI is rapidly becoming too big to cover up with each breathtaking revelation of institutional bias indicating that Democrat loyalists worked to prevent and then overturn the election of President Donald Trump.
In a shrieking bombshell of a story, it is being reported that a group of Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have undertaken a covert probe into shady officials and have wisely chosen to circumvent Democrats including likely criminal leaker Congressman Adam Schiff.
The effort is being led by Devin Nunes who was finally cleared by the House Ethics Committee this month after being sidelined over accusations that he mishandled classified information.
More from Politico:
The people familiar with Nunes’ plans said the goal is to highlight what some committee Republicans see as corruption and conspiracy in the upper ranks of federal law enforcement. The group hopes to release a report early next year detailing their concerns about the DOJ and FBI, and they might seek congressional votes to declassify elements of their evidence.
That final product could ultimately be used by Republicans to discredit special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether any Trump aides colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign — or possibly even to justify his dismissal, as some rank-and-file Republicans and Trump allies have demanded. (The president has said he is not currently considering firing Mueller.)
Republicans in the Nunes-led group suspect the FBI and DOJ have worked either to hurt Trump or aid his former campaign rival Hillary Clinton, a sense that has pervaded parts of the president’s inner circle. Trump has long called the investigations into whether Russia meddled in the 2016 election a “witch hunt,” and on Tuesday, his son Donald Trump Jr. told a crowd in Florida the probes were part of a “rigged system” by “people at the highest levels of government” who were working to hurt the president.
We’ll have to wait and see how this one plays out.
Hopefully, senior Obama officials will be subpoenaed and eventually sent to prison.
