Obama Jabs Trump Over Indictments

Failed former president Barack Obama took a shot at President Trump at a campaign stop in Milwaukee on Friday. Jabbing Trump for supposedly not doing enough to take on corruption, Obama claimed no one in his administration was ever indicted. That’s not quite true—Obama’s former CIA director David Petraeus was convicted in 2015 of mishandling classified information. In reality, only former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn has been convicted and allegations against three others aren’t related to conduct in the administration, and in fact aren’t even directly related to the investigation into Russian collusion in the 2016 election.

—QUOTABLE: “They have gone to Washington and just plundered away. In Washington, they have racked up enough indictments to field a football team…Nobody in my administration got indicted.” -Obama

McCabe Investigated As Leaker

The FBI investigated Andrew McCabe last spring for allegedly leaking info about Michael Flynn to the media. McCabe, the disgraced former FBI deputy director, allegedly leaked sensitive internal documents regarding former Trump National Security Adviser Flynn to the media, and shortly after that Flynn was fired. McCabe was known to have had a direct role in the FBI’s investigation of Flynn and reportedly ordered a team led by another disgraced former FBI flack, Peter Strzok, to interrogate Flynn. McCabe was fired when it was determined he basically lied about other leaks to the Wall Street Journal.
