Trump accuses Obama of perpetrating crimes that make Watergate look like “small time”

As his mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic and a reeling economy set off alarm bells in President Trump’s re-election campaign  headquarters, Trump himself has been desperately searching for a new narrative with which to distract the nation and paint himself as a victim of elaborate Democratic conspiracies.

He appears to have settled on what he and MAGAworld have uncreatively termed “OBAMAGATE,” if the twenty or so tweets and retweets about it in the past day are any indication.

The suspiciously timely release of FBI documents showing the interview strategy used by FBI investigators in the interrogation of Gen. Michael Flynn has been used by the Trump administration to justify the dropping of the case against the treasonous ex-National Security Advisor despite the fact that Flynn had already pleaded guilty to his crimes and cooperated with the Mueller investigation.

Now those documents are being used to fuel a new narrative that accuses President Obama and his deep state cronies in the FBI — which was and is run by Republicans — were attempting to frame Michael Flynn and deliberately caught him in a “perjury trap.”

Yesterday, Flynn’s lawyer Sidney Powell went on FOX News and baselessly argued that the “whole thing was orchestrated and set up within the FBI, Clapper, Brennan and in the Oval Office meeting that day [in January 2017] with President  Obama.”

Add your name to reject Trump & Republicans’ vile idea of sacrificing seniors’ lives to save the stock market!

Trump spent the majority of Sunday retweeting various articles about the conspiracy and making preposterous statements about the conspiracy, like the notion it was worse than Watergate and that Pres. Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden were somehow leading the charge, and Monday morning was no different.

This new “scandal” is nothing but a politically convenient indulgence of the president’s paranoia, victim complex, and the grudge that he holds for his African-American predecessor. The entire thing hinges on the public’s lack of understanding of the arcane details of American law and the knowledge that the right-wing media machine will push the conspiracy so hard it works its way into the mainstream like they did so many times before.

We cannot allow the President and his media toadies to change the narrative, which needs to be centered on the coronavirus pandemic and how his appalling mismanagement has led to the deaths of over 70,000 Americans.
