President Trump shared a social media message which signaled it was his turn to start investigating former President Barack Obama and what he is dubbing ‘Obamagate.’
The President has been on an absolute tear on Twitter following revelations on two major fronts:
- The FBI tried to destroy former national security adviser Michael Flynn by “get(ting) him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired,”
- And the release of transcripts that show former Obama officials from top to bottom knew there was no evidence of Russia collusion.
Trump has been firing on all cylinders, ranging from these latest scandals to criticizing his predecessor for interfering by speaking out against his administration, something most former Presidents have graciously avoided.
“He got caught, OBAMAGATE!” he succinctly wrote.
The message was a retweet of a meme which points out Obama “is the first Ex-President to ever speak against his successor,” something “which was long [a] tradition of decorum and decency.”
The President also shared a meme that reads, “Hope you had fun investigating me … now it’s my turn.”

Obama Getting Dragged In
Obama, sensing the truth is finally beginning to come out, said in a conveniently leaked conversation about the Flynn case being dropped by the DOJ, that the “rule of law is at risk.”
“The fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free,” Obama said knowing full-well Flynn was never charged with perjury. “That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried.”
Sidney Powell, Flynn’s lawyer, has suggested the conspiracy to take down her client demonstrates it’s actually the former President we should be worried about.
When asked if she thought this went all the way to the top, Powell cited a meeting in the Oval Office that featured former FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former DIA Director John Brennan all briefing Obama on the Flynn case, and stated: “Absolutely.”
He Got Caught
President Trump also shared a tweet from radio host Buck Sexton, which suggested if what the Obama administration had done to undermine a new administration had been done elsewhere, people would be outraged.
“If you read a news story about some European country where, after a fair election, the outgoing president used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration, you’d be appalled,” Sexton rightly mused. “It happened here, and half the country thinks it was fine.”
Trump retweeted and added it is “The biggest political crime in American history, by far!”
…And we caught them and their illegal activities! https://t.co/53YV7x3cdD

“It was OBAMAGATE, and he and Sleepy Joe led the charge. The most corrupt administration in U.S. history!” the President seethed.
Trump is absolutely correct.
Remember those days when Obama and Biden both suggested they had taken part in an administration without a hint of scandal? We’re pretty far past that point now, aren’t we?
Now the only question remains – When are some of these corrupt Obama-era officials going to pay a price for their actions?
