I just want to point out to your viewers that President Obama is the only President I know is only about a mile from the White House, opened a business, and has all of his people there. Most of his people got Kamala Harris promoted to run before they bombed, wasted millions of dollars, hundreds of millions of dollars, and then they backed Joe Biden. So it's not just about how this becomes the first president to oversee a political campaign and use the FBI and DOJ to open an investigation into your competitive campaign. This is as big a fraud as in the history of the United States of America, so he is not giving up power.
He investigated his opposing party. He admitted it when he was so tall and powerful and over the dashboard he should have told Clinton, Comey, Mccabe, Brennan, everyone, no, we don't. They have no evidence that Trump is some kind of Russian agent. Stop it. He didn't and here we are left after four years of this nonsense and now we are waiting for Durham to complete this investigation. I think not only are people getting very frustrated, but there is also a growing concern that Durham will get nothing out, and then Biden and Obama will come back and close this investigation. I was very clear about that.
Every day that goes by becomes an absolute necessity that a special lawyer be appointed on the way out. That doesn't mean Biden wouldn't fire the special advisor, but at least they would have set up a special advisory bureau with money to allow this investigation to continue as I don't see any charges I should see when you consider that I made 14 criminal referrals that involved dozens and dozen of people.
Obama doesn't spend much time in DC. The Obamas originally stayed in DC so their daughter could finish high school.
The idea that Obama stayed in Washington to form a shadow government that Joe Biden would rule is nonsense. Nunes actually urged Trump to salt the earth by appointing a special attorney to launch a fake Obama investigation. The House and Senate Republicans have achieved nothing with their Biden investigation, and Nunes wants Trump to abuse his power one last time to perpetuate a false scandal.
The chances of this happening are close to zero, but the idea shows how desperate Republicans are to confuse the Biden presidency.
