Senate GOP Breaks with Trump Over 'Obamagate'

Only idiots are buying the Obamagate silliness https://politicalwire.com/2020/05/11/senate-gop-breaks-with-trump-over-obamagate/

ďPresident Trumpís aggressive campaign to encourage sweeping investigations of his predecessor Barack Obama met a unanimous response from Senate Republicans: No thanks,Ē Politico reports.

ďTrumpís Senate allies on Monday stopped short of echoing Trumpís frenetic and unsubstantiated claim that Obama acted illegally when the Justice Department began probing incoming national security adviser Michael Flynn in late 2016. And they indicated that the Senate would pass on investigating the former president as they conduct their own investigations that could soon ensnare other senior Obama administration officials.Ē

10. GOP knows this will just rehash "the Russian Thing" that they just swept under the rug.

They are also perhaps afraid of aggressive investigations from a Biden Administration.

19. Some RW nuts want to impeach President Obama now, even though he's out of office.

Remember, these are the same people who keep saying, "We've got to get back to the Constitution!"

There are a few million Trump Crimes that need scrutiny.

20. Fox has already started to lay the foundation for Barr and Dunham to try and indict high level

Obama staff and FBI agents. Biden, Rice, Comey, McCabe and Yates, to name a few, better be prepared for an October surprise we all know that is coming. The Fox sycophants started to rev up the smear campaign with talk about Susan Rice emails and Obama misdeeds. Itís all playing out before our eyes the effort to change the history of Russian election interference starting with asking the court to dismiss charges against Flynn. Next Barr and Dunham. Will attempt to charge Biden,Rice, Comey, McCabe and Yates to name a few to change the subject away from the virus.

22. Senate Republicans break with Trump over 'Obamagate




President Donald Trumpís aggressive campaign to encourage sweeping investigations of his predecessor Barack Obama met a unanimous response from Senate Republicans: No thanks.

Trumpís Senate allies on Monday stopped short of echoing Trumpís claim that Obama acted illegally when the Justice Department began probing incoming national security adviser Michael Flynn in late 2016. And they indicated that the Senate would pass on investigating the former president as they conduct their own investigations that could soon ensnare other senior Obama administration officials.

ďIím not anticipating calling President Obama,Ē said Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), whose panel is investigating the origins of the 2016 Russia investigation, even as he vowed to bring in former senior Obama administration officials as witnesses. Those ex-officials include former FBI Director James Comey and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates.

ďI think the presidentís got a real good reason to be upset with the Obama people,Ē Graham said.

Senate Republicans, however, sidestepped questions of whether the Justice Department should pursue criminal investigations against the former Obama officials, instead deferring to the ongoing investigation of U.S. Attorney John Durham, who was tapped by Attorney General Williams Barr to probe the origins of the FBIís investigation of the Trump campaignís contacts with Russia.
