Reckoning: What Did Obama Know
and When Did He Know It?

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 5/8/2020 12:18:57 PM

reck·on·ing (noun) - the avenging or punishing of past mistakes or misdeeds. When one writes a regular opinion column, one is often faced with multiple major stories in the news that deserve further analysis and context that inspire thought and even passion from one's readers. Today, those of us in this noble trade are faced with a serious quandary: Where to begin?- Do we celebrate the partial justice delivered to American patriot Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as the Justice Department properly withdrew criminal charges against him?- Do we focus on the nefarious actions of the Comey FBI and Lynch Justice Department

Obozo was presented a plan and approved it and he was in it from the very beginning. To believe otherwise is being blind to the reality of the situation. Flynn was just a checklist item in the entire scheme to remove Trump by any means possible.

Imagine, under ANY administration in history, the chances that the Heads of the - FBI, DOJ, CIA, DNI,and NSA, all got together to launch a super-secret investigation of the Presidential candidate from the opposing political party of the outgoing President without the current President's knowledge and approval? FACT: Any Cabinet Member acting outside the Chief Executive's knowledge on ANYTHING that could cause his Administration public embarrassment, or worse, would NEVER be tolerated, and would be cause for immediate dismissal.. So, please, state the chance that all this occurred outside Obama's knowledge...

How did Obama know? He ordered it, that's how. The modus operandi was left to Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and Lynch-but Obama ordered it. Probably made them all swear to not implicate him in the off-chance that Hillary would lose. How their jaws must have hit the ground that night in Nov 2016.

There is no way these various organizations could have coordinated and felt justified except with the direction of and cover of Obama. Without Obama’s cover any one of these, FBI, DNI, DOJ, etc. could have pulled the plug on this corrupt project. The fact they didn’t proves the order came from the highest level - Obama.

With all documents coming to light and more articles like this one from Townhall the Obamas' just might stay far away from Washington and keep their mouths shut. This might kill any thoughts Michelle Obama had about VP or and offer to replace the buffoon Biden. Bill Barr and the prosecution train just might begin to move faster since yesterday. This is good news and I hope it keeps on coming.

How could the illegal immigrant president with an undocumented past and education, who was responsible for the murder and deaths caused by Obamacare, Fast & Furious, Benghazi, ISIS, Colonel Quadafi, and probably other covert activities of which we have never heard, NOT be involved in the attempt to take down the man who was going to erase his pathetic legacy? Get confirmation from the traitors involved in the secret meetings by offering to take ten years off their hundred year sentences. All they have to do is acknowledge the presence of the coconut head with the jug ears. We want that head on a pike.

I don’t think that 0bama is smart enough or industrious enough to have planned this. My bet is on Valerie Jarrett. 0bama certainly took part in it but mostly doled out the action to others - he is far too lazy to have done otherwise. I’m with #2 on hanging 0bama - and not just for this. He committed treason numerous times during his reign of error.

O’Connor wanders around for a while. Then finally gets to the real meat in this article. Most will not read it, IMO. "After the briefing, Obama dismissed the group but asked Yates and Comey to stay behind. Obama started by saying he had 'learned of the information about Flynn' and his conversation with Kislyak about sanctions. Obama specified he did not want any additional information on the matter, but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information. At that point, Yates had no idea what the President was talking about, but figured it out based on the conversation. Yates recalled Comey mentioning the Logan Act, but can't recall if he specified there was an 'investigation,'" it continues. Barack Obama triggered the Flynn investigation.

Are you folks kidding me? This is the stuff that will make Michelle want to be VP for sure. It's what dems do when they're about to go to jail. Think Hillary and Biden running for President. The run for high office to cover themselves. Surely she must not be guilty if she's running for vice-president. Nobody will touch Michelle, if he runs..

In the realm of DC bureaucratic and political reality, anytime the FBI decides to investigate a President-Elect (Trump) and his incoming National Security Advisor (Flynn) on a bogus claim that they are Russian Agents which was previously unheard of in the entire history of the USA, you had better believe that the incumbent President (Obama) and Vice-President (Biden) were in the know and were frequently briefed on the status of any such investigation. That is absolutely a sure thing with Obama when it came to Flynn, as Obama had fired him as his Director of National Intelligence because of intelligence policy differences, along with the fact that during a personal meeting with Trump, Obama warned Trump not to hire Flynn as his National Security Advisor. At the time Flynn was a danger to the Obama Administration and the “Deep State” Intelligence bureaucracy, as Flynn knew where all the Intelligence related bones were buried and had a plan to reorganize the intelligence community which would have stepped on a lot of bureaucratic “Ivory Towers”. So it is clear that Obama and the FBI investigation had the same objective, to effect Flynn’s removal as Trump’s National Security Advisor. Also Obama himself let it be known to her in a meeting with Asst. Attorney General Yates that he was familiar with the FBI investigation. What the FBI investigation amounted to was a political hit job against Trump, and Flynn, by Obama and his crew, as the FBI investigation at that point was initiated without any legitimate predication or basis in law, that resulted through an unauthorized interview without Flynn having his lawyer present, that constituted the entrapment of Flynn, along with threatening to put Flynn’s son in prison, that caused Flynn to do something that he would not otherwise do, to plead guilty to a charge of lying to the FBI a happening in itself that the was the fruit of a poisonous tree. That never would have happened if Flynn had never been fraudulently targeted by Obama, his crew, and the corrupt and politicized top level FBI bureaucracy. That process was a violation of Flynn’s constitutional rights and a gross abuse of authority by Obama, his crew, and the FBI bureaucratic leadership.

This is blatantly untrue and new information about the FBI's unsubstantiated criminal investigation into General Michael Flynn proves Obama was engaged in scandalous abuses of power right up until the moment he left the presidency.
