Obama is a dirty man. It's becoming clearer by the day. The collapse of the Trump-Russia collusion nonsense is exposing how the former president can smile at you whilst setting forth a plot to bring about your annihilation. We shouldn't be shocked; he did sign off on Fast and Furious that got a Border Patrol agent killed. Obama barely bat an eye.

The 2016 election was supposed to have Hillary Clinton making history. Instead, she became a two-time presidential loser, whose only accomplishment was that she married Bill, who does have the political skill to win an election. And there was a lot of dirty laundry lying around from the FBI's disastrous Russian collusion outing. Obama wanted to make sure this investigation was protected, preferably hidden from the Trump team.

And then, the leaks began. For over two years, Obama's orders led to a coordinated media leak campaign. All of this, the entire Trump-Russia myth, was based on a shoddy opposition research document—the Steele dossier—which has been thoroughly debunked. And yet, "orange man…bad," so it engulfed the liberal media. Obama knew this, as did his team.

With ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn now exonerated, as he was revealed to be the victim of a malicious FBI prosecution that was groundless, the last pieces of this dead rotting collusion carcass are falling apart. The documents show that there was no evidence of Russian collusion regarding Mr. Flynn, there was no need for him to be interviewed, and the top FBI brass was out to get him no matter what—the Constitution be damned. There was an entrapment plot, which was long dismissed as tin foil hat speak. Nope. Obama had spent eight years politicizing the Department of Justice with Eric Holder. It was now a den of traitors, who drafted an open letter recently calling for Attorney General William Barr to resign, citing political interference. In reality, they're upset their whole circus act is coming down. It's the twilight zone; nearly 2,000 former Obama DOJ officials are upset that the current administration is following the…rule of law.

The New York Post editorial board scorched Obama for this latest chapter of this scandal, noting that all this showed, besides it being a hoax and politically motivated, was that Obama's Chicago political upbringing is very much ingrained with the alleged plot against Trump:

RussiaGate is now a complete dead letter — but ObamaGate is taking its place. Just how far did the then-president go to cripple his successor?

It’s now clear the Obama-Comey FBI and Justice Department never had anything more substantial than the laughable fiction of the Steele dossier to justify the “counterintelligence” investigation of the Trump campaign. Yet incessant leaks from that supposedly confidential probe wound up consuming the Trump administration’s first months in office — followed by the Bob Mueller-led special counsel investigation that proved nearly the “total witch hunt” that President Trump dubbed it.

Information released as the Justice Department dropped its charges against Gen. Mike Flynn shows that President Barack Obama, in his final days in office, played a key role in fanning the flames of phony scandal. Fully briefed on the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation, he knew the FBI had come up with nothing despite months of work starting in July 2016.

[…]

…then-President Obama also directed that as many people as possible across his administration be briefed on the (utterly unsubstantiated) allegations against Team Trump — and as Rice and others took unprecedented steps to “unmask” US citizens like Flynn whose conversations had been caught on federal wiretaps of foreigners.

Indeed, the Obama administration went on a full-scale leak offensive — handing the Washington Post, New York Times and others a nonstop torrent of “anonymous” allegations of Trumpite ties to Moscow. It suggested that the investigations were finding a ton of treasonous dirt on Team Trump — when in fact the investigators had come up dry.

[…]

Say this about Obama: He knows how to play dirty.

Yeah, he sure does. He's a Democrat. They're all dirty. The FBI led a baseless and malicious crusade against Flynn, they spied on Carter Page, a former Trump campaign official, and ignored or disregarded standing department policy in its effort to honor Obama's final orders. And people think that Trump is the one who is cancerous to our institutions.

The FBI and the DOJ need to be overhauled. The top brass has to be purged. The agency, once admired for its impartiality and investigative prowess, as well as being the preeminent domestic intelligence service, is now in shambles. It can't be trusted. It's lost all credibility regarding being able to handle politically sensitive probes. And this is all thanks to Barry, who got duped by the Russians into pursuing this wild goose chase.

There must be more hearings on this, especially in the second phase of the Russian collusion delusion: the special counsel probe. Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Obama, James Clapper, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and others involved in this deep state plot should be yanked back before Congress to address the Flynn fiasco. Wheel in the cots if they have to because no one should leave until all questions have been asked and then some.
