A public policy analyst isn't surprised that former President Barack Obama is denying that he interfered in the FBI probe of Hillary Clinton.
Recently released texts provided by the Justice Department revealed two FBI officials – Lisa Page and Peter Strzok – exchanged emails that expressed disdain for President Trump but admiration for former FBI director James Comey. And OneNewsNow reported that the Strzok-Page texts also speak of prepping talking points for then-FBI director James Comey because POTUS (Barack Obama) "wants to know everything we are doing."
Abraham Hamilton III is general counsel and public policy analyst for the American Family Association.
"I believe part of the reason why Hillary Clinton was exonerated the way that she was is because her usage of a private email server to transmit classified information illegally would by necessity implicate President Obama," he tells OneNewsNow, "because in order for him receive emails from that private email address he would have to have authorized it."
In October 2015, while the FBI investigation was in process, President Obama downplayed it, describing it as "not a situation in which America's national security was endangered."
Hamilton contends that these emails clearly reveal actual nefarious interaction with the Russians – as compared to "Russian collusion" alleged by those who favor the ongoing Mueller investigation, want to undermine Trump – or both.
"Hillary Clinton, with the Uranium One scandal, is probably more involved in working with Russians to accomplish a goal – Hillary Clinton working with Uranium One," he argues. "President Barack Obama getting caught on a hot mike with Dimitri Medvedev, saying Give me some space, let me win this election first – and then I can do what Vladimir wants.
"These are things that we know have happened – straight from the horses' mouths, so to speak," the former prosecuting attorney offers.
And yet Hamilton says they don't get that kind of attention from the mainstream media – or from the political left.
