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.

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.

Luckily for America, Obama was an incompetent Fuck

1. Not a blight ON his legacy as much as it IS his legacy. And if Hildabeast hadn't stolen the

nomination from Sanders, none of this would be happening now. That woman is a plague on the democratic party.

2. As our first black president he is basically untouchable. ...

His “Get Out Of Jail, Free”card trumps even Hillary’s.

6. The Hill favors the right wing.

They are usually credible though.

8. More and more...

corruption is being uncovered. Maybe it is never tied directly to Obama, but he created the environment for these actions to take place.

10. There lies the problem...

they simply weren't discovered while he was in office. Those that were uncovered were covered up and people fell on their swords.

All of what is coming out now looks to be an effort by Obama and Co. to control government after he left office in collusion with a Hillary victory.

12. The Media was covering up for him

I truly believe they wanted a Black President so they were uncurious about his past and his problems

Then when he got elected they wanted to make sure he was successful so they made damn sure all the scandals were unreported or they played them off as racism.

Then the media wanted a woman President and they ignored all her open criminal activity. but she didn't make it into the White House and now the both of them are going to be exposed
