Elder Patriot – Earlier today, Representative Steve King (R-IA) explained to an interviewer the dangerous path Dems have journeyed down:
“Look at all of these investigations now. Look closely for Barack Obama’s fingerprints. I’ve just identified some that I think are fingerprints, and I think this trail leads to the Obama presidency, to Barack Obama himself, but it’s going to take some time if we get there, and I’m not certain that the evidence trail necessarily leads there. There’s an indication trail that says we need to take a look and find out. But if it’s not Barack Obama, then who is it? Well, it’s Loretta Lynch, for example, and James Comey, and McCabe, and that cast of characters from Sally Yates on down. I don’t think we’ve ever seen such a long row of very high-level executive branch officials wrapped up in something here that is political partisanship, weaponizing the FBI and DOJ to do opposition research that was stimulated by the presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and [paid for with her] and the DNC’s checkbooks.”
The Dems may now wish they had thrown Hillary overboard much earlier but they can no longer do that without exposing their messiah, Barack Hussein Obama to public disgrace, as well. They had hoped that they she would serve as a firewall but they’ve now overplayed that hand.
Remember back to an interview Obama gave to Fox News’ Chris Wallace while he was still president. Wallace asked Obama:
“Mr. President … some people I think are worried whether or not — the decision whether or not, how to handle the [Hillary email] case, will be made on political grounds, not legal grounds. Can you guarantee to the American people, can you direct the Justice Department to say, “Hillary Clinton will be treated as the evidence goes — she will not be, in any way, protected”?
Obama’s answer has now served to paint him into a box:
“I can guarantee that. And I can guarantee that not because I give Attorney General Lynch a directive, [but because] that is institutionally how we have always operated. I do not talk to the attorney general about pending investigations. I do not talk to FBI directors about pending investigations. We have a strict line and always have maintained it.
“I guarantee that there is no political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department, or the FBI, not just in this case, but in any case.”
With that answer Obama took ownership of this conspiracy.
Whether Obama gave the order that led Comey to make multiple fraudulent representations to the FISC or not, it’s clear that people at the highest levels of his administration did so for the express purpose of getting the court to authorize using electronic surveillance in order to collect intelligence on then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and his associates to afford Hillary Clinton a political campaign advantage.
Essentially, Comey signed off on the FBI performing opposition research for Hillary Clinton.
It’s unfathomable that his Attorney General, who signed multiple FISA applications wasn’t aware of the fraud that was being perpetrated on the FISC.
It’s equally unfathomable that she didn’t at least advise her president of the applications. The coordination that took place with Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice makes it a virtual certainty.
Neither Obama, nor anyone in his administration can walk these facts back at this point.
