“What could be the most dangerous scandal in American history” : Federal abuses on Obama’s watch represent a growing blight on his legacy

“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.”

As time goes on and as we learn more about Obama’s executive branch, the more interesting things become. No wonder Obama, Hillary, and the the bureaucracy that was loyal to these two went all in against Trump in such a rabid way.

The question is how far back and how deep into Obama’s White House is this thing going to go? How weird would it be if the Mueller investigation just came around and completely blew up Obama’s legacy. That’d be crazy. I put the chance at this moment at 1 in 5.

(From The Hill)

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.
