After the Department of Justice dropped the case against General Flynn, Obama stated that the “rule of law is at risk.”
Former South Carolina Republican congressman Trey Gowdy, however, thinks that Obama got it all wrong.
The Rule of Law
It is now widely believed the FBI was using some rather dastardly tactics against General Flynn to create a case against him.
He was clearly not liked by the Obama administration and there have been more than a few rumors that Obama warned Trump not to hire Flynn as his National Intelligence Adviser.
The recent evidence that has come to light paints a rather nasty picture that seems to show Flynn having been railroaded by the FBI.
While Obama believes the DOJ overstepped its bounds by dropping the case, Gowdy has a completely different take on the matter.
Gowdy stated, “Where is [Obama’s] respect for the rule of law for the crime that Michael Flynn was the victim of?”
“Remember, he was unmasked by somebody in Obama’s administration and then it was leaked… that is a 10-year felony, to disseminate classified information.
“Michael Flynn was a victim of that crime.”
He added, “President Obama himself pardoned people for making false statements to the government.
“He picked [Justice Department Inspector General] Michael Horowitz, that was an Obama pick.”
“Michael Horowitz found fault after fault after fault with the FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] program and [former FBI Director] Jim Comey and [former FBI Deputy Director] Andy McCabe, so I am delighted to hear President Obama’s newfound interest and respect for the rule of law.
“I just wish he would apply it equally to Republicans and Democrats.”
Gowdy then really went after Obama, stating, “The FBI used a dossier that was bought and paid for by your political party without vetting a single factual allegation in that dossier.
“You put it in front of a federal judge, where is your concern for respect for the rule of law as it relates to Carter Page and what happened to him?”
Obama has stuck his head out of the sand to come after Trump in an effort to help boost Joe Biden, so expect more of this from both sides.
Barack Obama will continue to make outlandish statements to hurt Trump and boost Biden and Trump’s surrogates will come out firing with both barrels to prove just how corrupt and inept they believe Obama to have been.
