Three Times Barack Obama Attempted To Obstruct Justice [Watch]

Keith Koffler, White House Dossier

The difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Republicans actually do, despite the polarized political climate, hold some principles that transcend their partisan agenda.

Which is why you see some concern emanating from the GOP about whether President Trump tried to obstruct the investigation into ties between his advisors and the Russians, and why you saw absolutely none out of any Democrats the times Barack Obama acted to obstruct justice. And of course, no outrage then from the mainstream media either.

Obama sent strong signals to police and the judiciary about how he wanted certain cases resolved. While he was more subtle about it than the bull-in-a-china-shop Trump, his desires were no less clear.

Let’s start with the most egregious example, his attempt on April 10, 2016, to influence the decision on whether to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information by setting up her own email server.

First, knowing that prosecutors choose which cases to pursue and which not to, even if there technically is criminality, Obama attempted to mitigate the transgression.

“She would never intentionally put America in any kind of jeopardy,” Obama told Chris Wallace of Fox News. “What I also know is that there’s classified and then there’s classified. There’s stuff that is really top secret top secret, and then there’s stuff that is being presented to the president or the secretary of state that you may not want on the transom or going out over the wire, but is basically stuff you can get in open sources.”

When America Was Truly The Land Of Opportunity

For [early immigrants] America was truly the land of opportunity. For the first time in their lives, many were truly free to pursue their own objectives. That freedom released the human energies which created the United States. There were few government programs to turn to and nobody expected them. But also there were few rules and regulations. There were no licenses, no permits, no red tape to restrict them. They found, in fact, a free market, and most of them thrived on it.
