Looks like there was a power dinner in New York City last night and the titans attending were Barack Obama, Robert de Niro, and Apple CEO Tim Cook. They sat and talked for hours about Trump, the impeachment proceedings, and the 2020 election. De Niro rabidly hates President Trump and like minds attract it would seem. Obama just inked a $90,000,000 Netflix deal and this should give Apple users pause as well.
Obama was seen in a sleek black suit and dark sunglasses. He was spotted entering the Greenwich hotel ahead of his dinner with De Niro. The pair are said to have dined at Yves Restaurant in Tribeca. Robert De Niro has long supported Obama, having campaigned for him in 2008. Obviously Cook is a supporter as well. I would have loved to have been a fly on that wise guys’ wall.
“As the Daily Mail notes, the dinner comes after Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company, Higher Ground, signed a whopping $90 million deal to produce a Netflix series regarding calls to impeachment President Donald Trump. De Niro has long urged House Democrats to begin proceedings to remove the president, contending he “should not be president, period.”
“In addition to their Netflix deal, the Obamas production company is teaming up with Spotify to produce exclusive podcasts for the platform. Under the partnership announced, the former president and first lady will develop and lend their voices to select podcasts.
“We’ve always believed in the value of entertaining, thought-provoking conversation. It helps us build connections with each other and open ourselves up to new ideas,” a statement via former President Obama read at the time. “We’re excited about Higher Ground Audio because podcasts offer an extraordinary opportunity to foster productive dialogue, make people smile and make people think, and, hopefully, bring us all a little closer together.”
“The Obamas launched Higher Ground in 2018 with an initial partnership with Netflix. The idea was to raise new, diverse voices in the entertainment industry. The Spotify partnership seeks to expand the conversation.”

The confab was called a “meeting of the minds,” by TMZ. The Netflix gig is interesting coming from a former president who allegedly played a role in the events that led up to the possibility of impeachment for Trump. In fact, if I were betting I would say that Obama is behind most of this. He is calculating, manipulative, and isn’t naive or dumb when it comes to politics.
Michelle and Barack Obama’s first Netflix documentary produced under the deal with the streaming powerhouse was released on August 21st of this year. Named ‘American Factory’, the work takes aim at President Trump’s promises to revive the manufacturing industry in America’s heartland by highlighting misery at a Midwestern factory reopened by Chinese bosses. Sounds like ‘impeachment’ is their next project.
Now we are monetizing constitutional process?
What is the penalty for launching false claims to start said process?
Follow the money and all questions shall be answered.

De Niro has previously stated that Donald Trump ‘should not be president, period’. He infamously gave a speech at the 2018 Tony Awards during which he declared: “I’m gonna say one thing. F*** Trump.” He sounds like a perfect fit for Obama’s next documentary.
Obama laughingly awarded De Niro the Medal of Freedom. The two are fast friends and you can bet there are all kinds of anti-Trump things in the mix when it comes to those two. And just as a note… Obama looks and acts far more like a mob boss than De Niro does.
So this is why Democrats launched a fake impeachment inquiry. Quid Pro Quo
