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
