Just when we thought that we were done with the Obama administration and they’re less than legal shenanigans, these bad decisions from our past are coming back up to bite us. It’s like waking up and hoping last night was a dream, but your wallet and headache inform you otherwise. One of the Obama administration’s brightest shining lights was, of course, Susan Rice and all of her shady dealings with classified information.
It seems that Obama and Rice aren’t done causing havoc in the White House despite the fact that we’re supposed to be finally shed of them. Since Rice’s activities are still being looked into, we’re still dealing with their presence around D.C. politics.
The most recent and particularly suspicious action is that Obama looks as if he’s coming to the rescue of his former lackey and doing away with some of the evidence against Rice. It’s unclear how he’s allowed to do this, or if he’ll get away with it, but he’s sure trying to. I know, crazy.
Via Wayne Dupree:
“Talk about obstruction. The entire Barack Obama administration needs to do serious jail time.
The National Security Council says Susan Rice records have been sent to the Barack Obama library. This library hasn’t even been built yet, so where exactly are the documents?
Many of you are probably wondering how in the heck this is legal. Presidential Libraries are not depositories for documents or any other evidence or records that suddenly enjoy a status of the sanctuary. This is more of the same crap, of all elected officials being corrupt.
So the completely unneeded presidential library has priority over a Congressional investigation? If this is so, then the Republicans in Congress, need to pass a law immediately making this obsolete and send in agents to make sure that there isn’t a fire in the storage facility of the Obama comic book collection.
All Public Records are the property of the Federal Government, not the individual or the Administration; all are subject to the record retention Act and FOIA.
Only a Clinton or an Obama are given the right to obstruct justice, fund, arm and support Islamic terrorists, withhold and destroy evidence. It’s a special law for the progressive/Socialist elite.”
Talk about the fox guarding the hen house! If Rice is implicated in some sort of illegal activity, it could easily come back on former President Obama and others on his staff. So apparently he just gets to whisk it all away and we have to wait 5 years to see it? There are some rose colored glasses on some people in Washington if they think that’s not something that’s going to be exploited.
Here’s a little more information on the subject from Judicial Watch:
“Judicial Watch today announced that the National Security Council (NSC) on May 23, 2017, informed it by letter that the materials regarding the unmasking by Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice of “the identities of any U.S. citizens associated with the Trump presidential campaign or transition team” have been removed to the Obama Library.
The NSC will not fulfill an April 4 Judicial Watch request for records regarding information relating to people “who were identified pursuant to intelligence collection activities.”
The agency also informed Judicial Watch that it would not turn over communications with any Intelligence Community member or agency concerning the alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election; the hacking of DNC computers; or the suspected communications between Russia and Trump campaign/transition officials. Specifically, the NSC told Judicial Watch:
Documents from the Obama administration have been transferred to the Barack Obama Presidential Library. You may send your request to the Obama Library. However, you should be aware that under the Presidential Records Act, Presidential records remain closed to the public for five years after an administration has left office.
Where are whistleblowers when you need them? Obama did a better job sticking his departments with loyalists. This is exactly why we need to clean house and start over.
If the records were under subpoena, then whoever transferred them needs to be held in contempt and put in jail until the records are coughed up. That will help prevent this crap in the future or dig up Sandy Berger and put him back to work again.”
I know that many people in Washington depend on the general public to just assume that the rules are being followed and that nothing illegal is going on, but this is something that can’t be ignored. If this went down the way it’s looking like, not only is Rice guilty as sin but she’s got a whole network of people helping her. At this point, somebody could almost make a RICO case out of it and take down a whole bunch of people at the same time.
Yes, it’s going to be hard to admit that we let this bad of a criminal live in the White Hosue and direct the country for 8 years if all of this turns out to be true, but it would be better to just admit our mistake than to ignore the problem and let others think they can get away with the same thing. I’m not even saying to make an example of Rice and Obama, I’m just saying let’s not get in the way of justice.
