The Republicans think all these endless fake scandals are somehow equivalent to the non-stop corruption, conspiracy and dumbass things Trump did.

That's the joke.
 
2018-02-07 04:25:20 PM  
Wait... The head of the federal government wanted to know what the head of the federal bureau of investigation was up to? That's some scandal you've got there, Grapefruit Grandpa. Go back to your microwave.

I'm pretty sure Obama wasn't publicly undermining the FBI by claiming they were on a partisan witch hunt.

So Obama was trying to make sure the Russians didn't interfere in the 2016 election and got daily briefings from the FBI?

shocking, just shocking

I think a lot of people called it.

"Never met any russians"
"OK met with russians but didn't talk sanctions"
"OK sanctions might have come up but there was no quid pro quo"
"OK Don Jr, Kushner and Manafort were in a meeting with a quid pro quo but they didn't take it"

We're now starting the next step. "We took the quid pro, but then the Russians never actually did the quo.

"Okay, the Russians did the quo, but Obama was president while we did this, so he's responsible."

Asking for a report on an investigation is totally the same thing as interfering with an investigation.

We can see why Ben was mistaken for the Tar Monster on many occasions.  He does have creepy behavior and a frightening appearance. However, in the end, he was proven innocent.

It's amazing what a President can learn about when he's not being investigated.

Guess there might be a lesson in there, somewhere...

President Trump demanding information on the investigations into his defeated political rival = perfectly fine and normal

President Obama demanding information on Russian attempts to interfere with US election = proof that Obama is the master puppeteer

Is this right?

Nope. In 4 billion years when our sun has expanded and is about to consume the planet, the last remaining humans will blame it on Hillary.
 
2018-02-07 08:50:27 PM  
I remember this. I remember Obama tweeting twice as many followers that this was a witch hunt about the emails. I remember Pelosi and Schumer going on Maddow with stories of the FBI being "Trumpland" and calling for investigations.

Wait... no I don't.

And yet he didn't fire anyone currently investigating him or Clinton.
 
2018-02-07 09:01:42 PM  
Man, they really are getting desperate. Up next: Obama got a parking ticket in 1978, so his blatant contempt for law and order negates the entire investigation.

The most coherent argument I've heard (and that is stretching it) is that since the DNC funded the Steele Dossier, and the Steele Dossier was forwarded to the FBI, Obama knew that if he asked for everything the FBI had on Russia they would give him the dossier. Since the dossier is OBVIOUSLY all been proven to be lies, this would give Obama a way to publicly accuse Trump of links to Russia that he knew to be phony based on evidence he himself fabricated: garbage in, garbage out.

...none of this explains why he would take the steps to publicly confront Putin about this issue but NOT attempt to publicly accuse Trump of the crimes outlined in the dossier. Oh, and it assumes that the dossier was a deliberately false document which even Nunes and Grassley-Graham fall short of, simply saying it "has largely been unverified" rather than actually claim it has been proven false.

"President does job."

I know this is scandalous given our current President, but it hasn't been long enough to forget what presidents used to do.

Next thing you'll tell me he was getting updates on Carter Page once he jumped on the Trump bus.
 
2018-02-07 09:08:12 PM  
You all don't get it. Obama from the past used his time machine to ask Comey from the future for details on the investigation in the past to remove President Trump in the future. Or something. Supertreason.

So I was watching as this became all the rage on Foxnews.com today.  And I began to wonder, no one else is talking about this, why?  What is Foxnews lying about now?

It's sad that their bullshiat is so obvious and yet people fall for it.
