Federal abuses represent a growing blight on Obama's legacy

Federal abuses on Obama's watch represent a growing blight on his legacy

BY MONICA CROWLEY
02/12/18 08:00 AM EST


In all of the discussions about the political weaponization of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI, alleged corruption at the highest echelons of those agencies and serial abuse of the secret FISA process surrounding the 2016 election, one name has been conspicuously absent: President Barack Obama.

High-ranking officials and other major players in those agencies — which Obama oversaw — are increasingly embroiled in the growing scandal: James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe, Andrew Weissmann, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr.

Given the tight control Obama exercised over every part of his administration and agenda, the idea that any of these appointees and loyalists freelanced their activities without at least his tacit approval or that of his White House strains credulity.

These kinds of abuses of power were nothing new, given the Obama team’s long history of this type of misconduct on everything from the Benghazi terror attack to the political misuse of the IRS. They weaponized the most fearsome government agencies to target, monitor and presumably illegally unmask political opponents, including members of Congress, journalists reporting unfavorable stories, Trump allies and average Americans.

These dark institutional offenses didn’t just materialize out of thin air. One of the criticisms of President Nixon was that even though he wasn’t aware of the Watergate break-in, he had created an environment in which such an action was acceptable.

Decades later, Obama created a climate in which the potentially criminal misuse of the DOJ and the FBI, as currently being unraveled, was not just acceptable but perhaps encouraged, thereby giving rise to what could be the most dangerous scandal in American history.

It’s increasingly apparent that these recently exposed abuses of power served two ostensible purposes: to secure Hillary Clinton’s candidacy by shielding her from prosecution stemming from the use of her unauthorized private server, and to derail the candidacy and presidency of Donald Trump.

But something else, something more profound, drove their efforts: their urgency to preserve what Obama once called “the fundamental transformation of the nation” — a grand project much bigger than Obama himself or any other single figure. He largely fulfilled the long-held progressive ambition of changing the nation’s course, only to see Trump threaten to change it once again: not to return it to where it was pre-Obama, but to smash the corrupt existing order that had made their progressive advances possible.

Obama and the leftist movement over which he has presided could not tolerate a reversal of their gains (by Trump, no less!), so they got to work.

On the offensive side, these Obama officials — who obviously loathe Trump, as demonstrated by the glaring antipathy in the Strzok–Page texts and others’ communications — set out to damage him. Trump, they thought, gave them much material with which to work, plus they enjoyed a compliant media that stood ready to amplify spoon-fed narratives, regardless of their veracity. The acquisition of multiple FISA warrants — now known to be largely based on an unverified dossier prepared by a foreign spy, using anonymous Russian and close Clinton associates and paid for by her campaign and the Democratic National Committee — to subvert and impair Trump and his associates, succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

On the defensive side, Herculean efforts were made by the Obama DOJ and FBI to stonewall the Clinton investigation, not out of any real love for Hillary but because they needed to ensure a Democratic win and the continuance of their “transformative” agenda. Further, with Clinton at the helm, evidence of all of their previous abuses would never see the light of day.

Thus, the forward march to safeguard her.

In October 2015, Obama told “60 Minutes” that, while Clinton made a “mistake” using a private server, “this is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered.” The signal to his law enforcement lieutenants to back off could not have been clearer.

As the National Review’s Andrew McCarthy has reported, Obama knowingly and repeatedly sent communications to Clinton via her nongovernment, unsecured email and server. One assumes those emails involved classified information, not yoga schedules. That meant if Clinton were guilty of committing felonies, so was Obama. Because they were joined at the hip over this and other toxic controversies, such as Benghazi, she required protection in order to protect him. To this day, they survive or fall together. Hence, Obama’s support of her candidacy over his preferred choice, Joe Biden, and the necessity of the email cover-up.

He and his allies have never taken their eyes off the prize. They cannot allow their progressive gains to be erased (and replaced by far more successful economic and national security policies) and their history of abuses to be exposed. Having never expected a Trump victory, the Obama and Clinton squads have been throwing the kitchen sink at him in an effort to protect themselves — and to try to backstop their hard-won “transformative” achievements.

Restoring the progressive revolution is also why loyal Obama soldiers such as Biden and Eric Holder are considering White House runs. In the meantime, they must try to destroy Trump, his agenda, and the investigations that are quickly turning against them. After all, if Trump doesn’t just endure but succeeds, Obama, Clinton, their brigades and the larger decades-long radical movement have everything to lose.

An Obama hit piece from another RWNJ Wash Times/FOX "journalist"...funny how these are credible to some, but criticism of Trump is always and forever mere partisan attacks on our poor little innocent president.

Come back to us when the indictments start to roll in...

Im about to give up on all this investigation bullshit.

There has been millions and millions pissed away by congressional committees on hearings and testimony on ever manner of crap and we cannot point to one real result.....no ones going down in the end.

That may get Manafort on some shit he did before he worked for Trump, Kelly for lying to somebody about a nothing issue.

But bottom line it will come to naught. Sessions will quit in time for a new AG to come in, fire the whole lot of top level at FBI, State will continue to be cleaned of the Obama taint. But that about it.

Exactly where is she wrong in the article? Do you dispute anything in it as not being factual? If so, then what?

You know its possible to hate Trump and be honest about Obama at the same time right?

From the article you posted:

Quote:
Crowley cited these and other sources in footnotes at various points in her dissertation, but often failed to include citations or to properly cite sources in sections where she copied their wording verbatim or closely paraphrased it.
So...she did cite the sources, just not in a way that some thought she should. I glanced over some of them, and the verbatim was present, but in some of the situations, she was quoting somebody who was quoting somebody, and it's not like she made out like the words were her own. They had quotes around them, so it was obvious that she wasn't claiming that the words were her own. Given that, and the admission in your article that she DID cite "these and other sources in footnotes" tells me that this is a...wait for it...nothingburger.

Of course, those on your side of the aisle will breathlessly label her a liar and a cheat...because politics. Remember this one? When Obama plagiarized his speech?:

http://www.huliq.com/50984/obama-039...m039-commotion

You probably gave not one shit when that happened.

What facts? There are allegations and conclusions, but little in the way of evidence.

She could be right, but she offers no proof to support her arguments.

I get that they don't want the overt corruption and Nixonian 'corrupt environment' stuff to come to light because it will hurt their future prospects, but you'd think some would express at least some disappointment in these regards with "the most transparent administration ever"

Did you ever hear one negative word about O during is presidency? Hell, his pre or post presidency? He's an icon to those people. O never did anything wrong.


I suppose a few folks grumbled about his bombing runs or widening wealth gap but boy it was muted. And NO public figures in his Party dared openly question him
