Today many awoke to see news of new texts between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page where it was revealed obama wanted “to know everything we’re doing.”
Many have been saying for a while now obama knew exactly what was going on with the Clinton, as well as the Trump-Russian, investigation. Frankly, as POTUS there is no way he would not be made aware of what was going on, as Attorney General Lynch had daily briefings with him, as any POTUS does. When you have the democratic nominee engaged in violating the Espionage Act and claims of meetings between the Trump campaign and Russians, there is NO WAY the President of the United States would not be informed.
Obama was banking on a Clinton win. He had all the reason to know what was going on as she would serve as his third term to lock in his legacy. So the former POTUS was not being too honest when he appeared on Fox News Sunday April 10, 2016 and stating he guaranteed no special treatment.
Wallace: Mr President when you say what you’ve just said when Josh earnest said as he did, your spokesman, in January the information from the Justice Department is she’s not a target, some people I think are worried whether or not the decision whether or not how to handle the 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: I can guarantee that, and and I can guarantee that, not because I give Attorney General Lynch a directive, 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.
The ah, we have a strict line and always have maintained as previous presidents.
Wallace: So just to button this up..
obama: I guarantee it. I guarantee that there’s NO political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department or the FBI, not just in this case but in any case … Full stop period.
Wallace: And she will be treated no different ?
obama: Guaranteed, full stop, nobody gets treated differently when it comes to the Justice Department, because nobody is above the law.
Wallace: Even if she ends up to the democratic nominee?
obama: How many time do I have to say it Chris? Guaranteed
The corrupt upper echelon of the DOJ/ FBI were already conspiring to protect Clinton around the time of this interview. Obama could very well claim he didn’t know, at the time of this interview, but there is no way he was not aware by Sept 2016, during a heated presidential race.
