Nervous Obama claims the Flynn case “risks the rule of law,” Turley responds

8

Barack Obama says in a private call [somehow released] that rule of law is at risk in the Michael Flynn case. He wants Americans to think that telling the truth and exonerating an innocent man violates the rule of law when it actually does the opposite.

This is the offensive tactic used by Alinsky — always keep the enemy on the defensive.

Famed Professor Turley trashes his argument with little effort.

STAGED, LEAKED, WHATEVER

Talking with ex-staff members, Obama said the “rule of law is at risk” in the wake of what he called an unprecedented move by the Justice Department to drop charges against former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn.

It was leaked and probably staged.

He also called the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic as “an absolute chaotic disaster.”

Trump has done well but Obama wants people to confuse the chaos caused by the virus and the economy as caused by the President’s handling. The former president won’t complain about his buddies in China.

RISKS THE RULE OF LAW

Reacting to the Justice Department’s move to end its case against Michael Flynn, Obama said the “rule of law is at risk.”

“The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,” Obama said, in a web talk with members of the Obama Alumni Association. Yahoo News reported this.

The facts show agents that then-NSA Flynn thought he was telling the truth or thought he was telling the truth. They then framed him and threatened him to get him to cop a plea.

NO PRECEDENT?

Obama says about the Flynn case, “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,” Obama said, according to the report. “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.”

What Obama is saying is absurd. It sounds like he’s getting very nervous and inventing nonsense. And Flynn did not commit perjury.

There is also no precedent for the corruption of the prior administration or the coup against the President. Prominent George Washington University Professor Jonathan Turley responded, see below.

Listen to Obama’s legerdemain:

Jonathan Turley found the former president’s comment “curious.”

Turley wrote on Twitter about Obama’s statement, “‘There is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free’ was a ‘curious statement’ for several reasons.”

“First, ‘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,'” Turley wrote in a Twitter thread.

Turley also said, Obama’s comment “reaffirms reports that Obama was personally invested in this effort.”

Turley pointed out that he believes there is indeed precedent for what took place with Flynn.

“Finally, there is precedent,” Turley wrote. “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?” Turley asked.

In his essay linked to this tweet, Turley writes, “These documents do not show prosecutors finding a way to arrest someone suspected of a crime. They show prosecutors trying to create a crime.”

  1. Obama, like his Progressive co-conspirators, is a self-serving, shallow, me-first low-life. Like the adolescents in adult bodies they are, Progressives can’t help themselves. It’s a DNA, developmental thing. But, boy, do they ever look silly when they act this way. So embarrassingly childish. And he’s a former President of the USA. My how standards have plunged.

    • It is also curious that the guy who ran guns into Mexico without the consent of the Mexican government, is now concerned with rule of law? Any president who hands out pardons to convicted criminals does the same damned thing. Obama needs to quit his sniveling, he is still butt-hurt having that magic-wand shoved up his arse.

  2. Simply put, Barak Obama has the infinity of the “RULE OF LAW”, that “HELEL ben SHAKAR”; {aka: Lucifer;

    that “OLD RED DRAGON” “Satan”}, has for GOD’S WILL & COMMANDMENTS!!) ZERO!

    AND! .

    They BOTH belong in the SAME deep cell, in TARTARUS……aka:..”The Bottomless Pit”)!!!

  3. Ovamit is not referring to the “rule of law.” He is talking about the rule of the jungle he and his fellow Commiecrats imposed on America during his eight year reign of terror. What can you expect from the Chief of a tribe of savages.

  4. If he’s so worried about “the rule of law” why not have him come in and testify in the Senate, or perhaps in front of a Grand Jury? Then he can sort everything out:)!.

  5. Obama continues to prove he has no class. It has been tradition, since George Washington relinquished the Presidency, that a former President does not comment negatively on a successor President’s policies. George W. Bush gave Obama this grace, but Obama doesn’t have it in him to follow this tradition. Once again showing how unAmerican he is.
