Barack Obama was counting on the Mueller report to remove Trump from office.
But Obama instead just found himself playing defense.
And it’s all thanks to one person Obama never predicted would turn on him.
Like almost every Democrat, former President Barack Obama was stunned to learn that the Mueller investigation concluded President Trump and his campaign team committed no wrongdoing in the 2016 election.
And to make matters infinitely worse for Obama, he’s now being forced to play defense as the aftermath of the Mueller report begins to put Democrats in an indefensible position.
Now, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is tearing into Obama and his administration for something that could amount to political corruption if it plays out.
Breitbart has the story, “Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein criticized the Obama administration’s handling of Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 election and took a shot at fired FBI Director James Comey in a closed-door speech Thursday evening.”
Rosenstein tore into the Obama administration in a very public way this past week.
And he laid it all out on the table.
“The previous Administration chose not to publicize the full story about Russian computer hackers and social media trolls, and how they relate to a broader strategy to undermine America,” Rosenstein said before the Public Servants Dinner of the Armenian Bar Association in New York.
The left has begun to turn on Rosenstein too since he and Mueller failed to deliver the killing blow to President Trump’s political career.
But Rosenstein is defending the actions of the Justice Department in the investigation, despite the cries from Democrats.
“Rosenstein, who oversaw special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into now-debunked collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia, defended the Department of Justice’s handling of the near-two year probe,” adds Breitbart.
“There was overwhelming evidence that Russian operatives hacked American computers and defrauded American citizens, and that is only the tip of the iceberg of a comprehensive Russian strategy to influence elections, promote social discord, and undermine America, just like they do in many other countries,” said Rosenstein.
The story of the Justice Department for the past two years has been one of betrayal, confusion, collusion, and conspiracy.
And Rosenstein has played a huge role in all of it.
But nonetheless, Democrats are abandoning him and Robert Mueller en masse because they didn’t deliver what Democrats had been rooting for all along, the destruction of the Trump presidency and the impeachment of Trump from office.
Now, Rosenstein looks at the end of his career with the realization that his previous Democratic backers are likely little more than hyper-partisans simply seeking to depose Trump in order to get one of their own into power.
“Rosenstein, who is slated to depart from the Justice Department in two months, has been besieged by controversy since the Mueller investigation began. According to various reports and testimony of former FBI General Counsel James Baker, Rosenstein offered to wear a wire while in meeting with President Trump at the White House,” concludes Breitbart.
“In the days following Comey’s May 2017 firing, Rosenstein is said to have discussed the idea with top FBI officials, including fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, as part of an effort to lobby Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove the president.”
