Barack Obama is apoplectic.
The always sanctimonious former president is now upset that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn will not likely spend time behind bars, or the rest of his life as a convicted felon.
In audio obtained by Yahoo News, Obama privately complains to members of the Obama Alumni Association that, “the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of the rule of law is at risk.”
The former president’s self-righteous, pearl-clutching statement is both blatantly dishonest and hypocritical.
In fact, Flynn was not even charged with perjury. He pled guilty to one count of making false statements to the FBI.
One of Obama’s favorite military advisers, retired Gen. James Cartwright, was also convicted of lying to the FBI about media leaks of classified information. In 2017, then-President Obama issued a full pardon for his favorite general. In other words, Gen. Cartwright got off “scot-free” in a perjury case.
Clearly, Obama doesn’t care about perjury. In his administration, lying was a perfectly acceptable means to an end.
The former president lied about the “shovel ready” jobs in his stimulus bill. He lied about premiums going down under ObamaCare. His “keep your doctor, keep your plan” shtick was named PolitiFact’s 2013 “lie of the year.” His United Nations Ambassador, Susan Rice, appeared on five different Sunday talk shows and lied about the Benghazi attack. Rampant dishonesty was a way of life under the Obama administration.

BARR TALK: The AG Says FBI Extended Probe for ‘Express Purpose’ of ‘Laying Perjury Trap’ Against General Flynn
Attorney General Bill Barr weighed-in over the weekend on the Department of Justice’s decision to drop all charges against former NSA Michael Flynn; saying the FBI extended their probe to “trap” the General.
“They were closing the investigation in December… There’s no mystery. They initially tried some theories of how they can open another investigation. Then they found out they haven’t closed the earlier investigation. They kept it open with the express purpose of trying to catch, lay a perjury trap for General Flynn,” said the Attorney General.

FLYNN ATTORNEY: Entire Plot Against Flynn ‘Set Up Within the FBI and the Oval Office with President Obama
Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s attorney said the entire perjury trap reached the Oval Office this week; raising new questions over whether President Barack Obama was aware of the plot against the senior Trump official.
“The Department of Justice announced Friday it was dropping the investigation into former National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn. On Fox News’ ‘Sunday Morning Futures,’ Flynn’s attorney gave some shocking insight into why the case may have been dropped. Flynn’s lead attorney, Sidney Powell said of the FBI’s tactics, ‘these agents specifically schemed and planned with each other how to not tip him off, that he was even the person being investigated,’” reports GreggJarrett.com.
“The whole thing was orchestrated and set up within the FBI, [former Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper, [Former CIA Director John] Brennan, and in the Oval Office meeting that day with President Obama,” said Sidney Powell.
