The question is: “Why did the Obama Administration start an investigation into the Trump Campaign (with zero proof of wrongdoing) long before the Election in November?”
President Trump took a break from confirming his intent to retaliate for years of unfair-trade-deals with America’s so-called ‘allies’, to return to another topic that is as existentially-threatening to the status quo as globalists would have us believe Trump’s trade war ideals will be.
The Obama administration…most transparent?…what a joke!
OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SLAMMED BY TRUMP
That topic is the Obama administration’s efforts to discredit Trump’s 2016 campaign, via investigation, while also failing to act on Russian efforts to influence the election.
“Why did the Obama Administration start an investigation into the Trump Campaign (with zero proof of wrongdoing) long before the Election in November?” Trump tweeted.
“Wanted to discredit so Crooked H would win. Unprecedented. Bigger than Watergate! Plus, Obama did NOTHING about Russian meddling,” he continued.

UNDER OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, FBI WAS OUT TO GET TRUMP
The Trump tweet was a continuation of Trump’s argument that the FBI under Obama was out to get him.
Trump has repeatedly said his campaign did not collude with Russia, which intelligence officials believe meddled in the election with the goal of helping Trump and hurting Clinton.
The Trump tweets come weeks after special counsel Robert Mueller brought new charges against 13 Russian individuals and three Russian groups related to election meddling.
Former FBI Director James Comey testified last year that the bureau opened an investigation in July 2016 into whether Trump campaign associates were involved in Russian efforts to influence the presidential election.
The bureau had already publicly disclosed its investigation into Clinton, who as secretary of State used a private email server over which classified information had been sent.
As part of the FBI investigation, the Justice Department monitored former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. Those surveillance applications became the focal point of a GOP-crafted memo released earlier this year alleging political bias within the FBI.
OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DID NOTHING TO STOP RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE
Trump has previously claimed the Obama administration “did nothing” to stop Russian election interference, particularly after Mueller filed charges against the Russian nationals and organizations for their role in the meddling.
Obama issued sanctions against Russia for the meddling after U.S. intelligence officials said they had found evidence that the country had hacked U.S. groups and leaked emails in an effort to influence the 2016 vote.
Trump is not alone in his perspective, as The Hill reports that even some Democrats have acknowledged the Obama administration could have taken a more forceful stance to oppose Russian meddling. Ex-Obama administration officials, including Vice President Joe Biden, have said they did not want to take action that would make it appear they favored one candidate over the other.
Democrats have criticized Trump for declining to implement new sanctions against Russia that passed Congress last year by overwhelming, bipartisan margins.
OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DID NOTHING…
I think we all know Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid big bucks to get some fake dirt from Fusion GPS to concoct an utterly bogus anti-Trump “dossier.”
Then Hillary’s 35-page smear was handed off to corrupt FBI agents and DOJ employees who were themselves accepting money from either Clinton cronies or the smear artists at Fusion GPS, who by the way were also being paid by the Russians at the same time.
UNDER THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, FBI CORRUPT
The corrupt FBI agents then took the fake dirt and dossier to the FISA court so they could get a FISA warrant to spy on Trump and his campaign. Of course, funny thing is the FBI forgot to mention a few details to the court. Like the fact that the FISA warrant was POLITICAL. In addition, the FBI forgot to mention the whole FISA warrant application was based on a FAKE dossier funded by the DNC and Hillary Clinton. Oops. Kind of important details to forget don’t you think?
Not only did they leave those details out, but they never mentioned them ANY of the subsequent times that they RENEWED the application for the FISA warrant either.
The FBI was withholding information from the court? What would have happened if you or I did that same thing in a court of law? Somehow I think the results would have been different.
WHY DIDN’T OBAMA ADMINISTRATION INVESTIGATE RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE?
On another note, the Democrats have no room to complain about Russians meddling in our elections and Trump not taking a hard enough stance. Afterall, if the Democrats were so concerned why didn’t OBAMA do anything about it while HE was in office?
Democrats should at least give Trump some credit for at least having an investigation in the first place? It’s just too bad Democrats don’t acknowledge that if it weren’t for the DNC and Hillary Clinton in the first place, there would be NO investigation.
How about the Democrats investigate who killed SETH RICH?! Now, there’s an investigation we STILL don’t know the TRUTH about. Because without Seth Rich….there is NO Russian hack story, right Democrats?
If the Obama administration wanted to do something about corruption, they should have started with Hillary Clinton and all her pay-to-play activities connected with the Clinton Foundation. Now THAT would have been a good investigation worth the effort and time.
