Obama: Nobody on my team got indicted. Trump throws a fit, says his life is harder now.
Former President Barack Obama continues to make headlines.
He told a crowd not too long ago, to much applause:
“In Washington they have racked up enough indictments to field a football team. Nobody in my administration got indicted."
President Donald trump, for his part, threw a fit as is his usual on Twitter, claiming that one of the reasons Obama never got in trouble was because he was never investigated.
Trump also accused people of "presidential harassment" for talking negatively about him.
For the record: Mueller has now indicted at least eight Americans with present or former ties to the Trump administration. His final report has yet to come out yet. In addition to this total, 13 Russian nationals, 12 Russian intelligence officers, three Russian companies, and two other people have been charged. Yet - the president still claims this is a "witch hunt."
While Obama is correct in pointing out that no one in his administration has ever been arrested, at least in these respects, we must point out that his office wasn't exactly scandal free.
The Daily Show points this out nicely. No, Obama had other things that were just as shady, like "JacketGate."
Obama was frequently photographed in the Oval Office of not dressing appropriately, as far as right-wingers are concerned.
Back to Trump's comments: The president's "presidential harassment" complaint is without warrant, and almost doesn't need to be defended. Everyone knows this to be false.
Trump himself harassed presidents. All one needs to do is look up his past tweets on Benghazi, Obama's birth certificate, etc.
However, despite all of this, Congressman Adam Schiff probably said it best when he stated that nothing Trump threatens or does will stop Congress from looking into his background more.
Right now, as it stands, Mueller is slated to release his long-awaited final report, and "Individual-1" can still be charged. It will be up to Congress to do something about it, though. The partisan bickering is long from over.
