Corruption and Collusion: Obama, Comey, and the Press

PJ Media ^ | 06/11/2017 | Andrew Klavan 

It now seems clear that Barack Obama was a corrupt machine politician in the worst Chicago mold. He used the IRS to silence his enemies, and the Justice Department to protect his friends. His two major "achievements" — a health care law that doesn't work and a deal that increased the power and prestige of the terrorist state of Iran — were built on lies to the public and manipulation of the press. And that's according to his own allies! Only the leftist bias and racial pathology of the media kept his administration from being destroyed by scandal, as it surely would have been had he been a white Republican.
I don't mention this to bring up old grudges, but for what it says about the current moment and the week just passed. Here's some of what we recently learned:
Former FBI Director James Comey's Senate testimony concerning former Attorney General Loretta Lynch's corruption confirmed our worst suspicions about the Obama DOJ. In an apparent attempt to help Hillary Clinton's campaign, Lynch told Comey to refer to the investigation into Hillary Clinton's abuse of classified material as "a matter" rather than an investigation. And, as we already knew but Comey confirmed, Lynch's secret tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton so underscored Comey's sense of her crookedness that the self-serving drama queen Comey actually went around her to publicly declare Hillary guilty-but-not-guilty.
"It won't get much attention, but that was pretty damning," said CNN's John King of Comey's testimony about Lynch. You can translate "it won't get much attention" into "we won't give it much attention."
