(ReliableNews.org) – Last weekend, former President Barack Obama spoke out against President Donald Trump and the Department of Justice (DOJ). He said the “rule of law is at risk” because the government dropped its case against Michael Flynn. Former House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy thought the former president’s comments were the height of hypocrisy.
During an appearance on Fox News’ show Sunday Morning Futures, Gowdy asked where Obama’s respect for the law was when his DOJ was targeting Flynn. The former congressman told host Maria Bartiromo that the former president “…pardoned people for making false statements” to government officials — the charge to which Flynn pleaded guilty.
It seems as though Obama doesn’t care very much about the rule of law. He’s only interested in attacking President Trump’s administration. He certainly didn’t mind the abuses happening in his own administration. Gowdy is correct…it’s an “amazing statement” from a failed president.
