Former President Barack Obama continues to claim that there was never a scandal during his eight years in office.
But arguably the most explosive scandal in U.S. history happened under the former president’s watch — and one author just went rogue to detail Obama’s crime against President Donald Trump.
Former prosecutor and Fox News contributor Andrew McCarthy’s book, “Ball of Collusion: The Plot to Rig an Election and Destroy a Presidency,” details how Obama and his allies weaponized the highest levels of the federal government to help Hillary Clinton and harm Trump.
“They (FBI, DOJ, CIA bosses) did not believe that Donald Trump was fit to be president,” McCarthy said on Chicago journalist John Kass’ podcast.
“Now there are a lot of things you can say about Donald Trump, good and bad. But ultimately, the way this system works, is that we have elections. We don’t have the FBI and CIA as a check on the public,” McCarthy added.
McCarthy argues that Obama, perhaps illegally, worked with and allowed his top intelligence officials to help Clinton’s presidential campaign by elevating the salacious dossier to kick off the phony Russia investigation into Trump.
That meant ensuring criminal charges were never filed against Clinton for sending and receiving classified information on her private email server — which was hidden for years in the basement of her New York mansion.
It also meant allowing the government to essentially carry out a coup against Trump — a duly elected president of the United States — by falsely claiming he colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election.
From late 2015 to early 2016, Fusion GPS hired former MI6 spy Christopher Steele to compile the dossier.
As the 2016 presidential election was ramping up, Clinton and the DNC paid Fusion GPS roughly $9 million to fund Steele’s anti-Trump operation.
Obama’s FBI and the Department of Justice used the Clinton-DNC funded dossier to launch the Russia investigation against Trump in mid-2016.
This also paved the way for the appointment of Robert Mueller as the special counsel — which ended with him finding no evidence that Trump colluded or obstructed justice.
The Obama cabal took the dossier from Clinton’s allies and gave it to senior officials at the DOJ and FBI, who then used it as the basis to launch the Russia investigation.
McCarthy argues that serious federal crimes were committed by the Obama administration in an effort to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
“What happened here is that they decided their judgment about who was fit to be president was superior to the public’s, and they weren’t going to take the public’s determination for an answer,” McCarthy said.
This sure sounds like the worst scandal in modern American history.
