If a person is accused of a really bad crime they usually scream their innocence. Charles Hurt noted something nobody seems to be talking about, Obama’s been very quiet, almost too quiet.
What is with this curious — now deafening — silence from former President Barack Obama on these charges that his administration spied on a political opponent at the very height of a presidential campaign?
Since President Trump first leveled the incendiary charges in early March, there have been thousands of press articles and endless hours of speculation on cable television about the high-level accusations.
Every word, character, and symbol of punctuation from Mr. Trump has been parsed and sussed and diagrammed.
Yet, from media darling Barack Obama (about whom the accusations were made!)? Not a peep.
This is no small thing we are talking about here. We are talking about a sitting president’s administration using the terrifying powers of espionage of the United States government to conduct an intelligence operation against a political opponent before, during and after that target was elected president of the United States.
So much for “peaceful transfer of power.”
This would be 10 times more serious than Watergate. We are talking a constitutional crisis the likes of which we have never seen in modern times.
If he didn’t do it, Obama would be laughing at Trump with his patented dismissive leer. But he isn’t. Hurt, and now I, find it curious.
Yet no one is asking him.
