Former President Barack Obama said on Friday that he was “worried” by the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) decision to drop the charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn this week after Attorney General William Barr said that “there was not a legitimate counterintelligence investigation going on.” “The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,” Obama said. “And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free.

Well, well, well. Look who's talking about a legitimate investigation. The biggest corrupt lying thug foreigner of them all. Afraid the Barr/Durham investigation is going to suck you in Barry? Still ticked that your glorious 8 years of destruction is still being destroyed? Tough.

The "Great Deflector" and Apologist may be feeling the heat of What Did Obama Know and When Did He Know It? Time to unzip that mouth for some obfuscation. This is the President who regards the Constitution as a "document of negative liberties." If Barr "rounds up the usual suspects," Obama is sure to be in that bunch of seditionists.

Is this Barry's idea of a joke? The EPA, FBI, IRS were turned into toys for his exclusive amusement. Obamacare was the worst abuse of Constitutional rights since Slick used Janet Reno to order an attack on a building full of children and burn it to the ground.

Seriously? This may be the biggest examplel of Obama hypocrisy ever: “The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,” Obama said. “And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk. And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places.” He’s “worried”? He probably is. But not about the rule of law as it applied to General Fly.nn. Rather, as it will apply to him...

"no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free" On the contrary, there are many instances of people being wrongly accused of all sorts of crimes, even convicted, and then exonerated when either the evidence falls apart or their is prosecutorial malfeasance, BOTH of which is true in the Flynn case. BO is getting desperate as his foot soldiers are being exposed and brought down. The searchlights are shining in his direction and are showing his involvement and awareness. We are not yet at the point of finding him directing illegal operations but the hints are strongly there. How do multiple people in multiple agencies all coordinate in corrupt activities? Someone was in charge. BO obviously had top level awareness to the point of shutting Trump and his team out of some information. What marching orders were his people given? Is it provable?

Jonathan Turley easily provided precedent that Barry lies and says there isn't one. @JonathanTurley President Obama is being quoted on Flynn, saying "There is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free." It is a curious statement. First and foremost, Flynn was not charged with perjury. Second, we now know Obama discussed charging Flynn under the Logan Act which has never been used successfully to convict anyone and is flagrantly unconstitutional. Third, this reaffirms reports that Obama was personally invested in this effort. Finally, there is precedent. There is a specific rule allowing for this motion under Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 48(a). There are specific Supreme Court cases like Rinaldi v. United States addressing the standard for such dismissals. The Justice Department has dismissed cases in the past including the Stevens case.That was requested by President Obama's own Attorney General Eric Holder for the same reason: misconduct by prosecutors. It was done before the same judge, Judge Sullivan. How is that for precedent?

"no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free" Being charged implies penalties? It used to require getting justly CONVICTED. The rule of law did not apply when Zippy occupied the white house; only the rule of Obama applied, Mister "I've got a phone and a pen". Yet more Democrat projection,

Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) is a little late to the party. She is just now figuring out that one of President Donald Trump's most successful acts has been the number of judges that have been placed on our courts, particularly on the circuit court level. He made a pact with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), whose motto is to "leave no vacancy behind," and it has paid off big time for conservatives. After months and months of successful appointments in the Senate, Hirono is finally figuring out the goal: for Republicans to nominate and appoint judges with a conservative bent.

The information concerns Perkins Coie, the law firm that was hired by Clinton and the DNC in 2016 for reasons that remain in dispute. The firm wound up hiring the opposition research firm Fusion GPS to conduct research on then-GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. Fusion GPS then hired Christopher Steele, the man responsible for the smear-laden Steele dossier, to perform the actual digging.

Anti-democratic Democrats opened up a new front in their relentless war on an independent judiciary in America. An absurdly-named special-interest group calling itself “Demand Justice” filed a formal complaint with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals accusing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of wrongdoing in stacking the federal judiciary with judges who believe in abiding by the Constitution. On the face of it, the complaint is funny because it suggests that “Demand Justice” is so unfamiliar with the actual Constitution that they don’t even know how judges are installed on the federal bench. According to the Constitution, federal judges are nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate.

The ruling by the nation’s highest court Thursday upholds the law. The Supreme Court not only vacated the appeals court’s decision but also criticized the judges for “drastically” straying from judicial norms.
