Imagine the chaos that would ensue should former president Obama be taken into custody to face potential wrong doings of a nature that include death within the range of penalties regardless of the amount of evidence showing both intent and malice.
We look to the world stage, however, and we see a few interesting happenings:
The son of South Africa's former President Jacob Zuma has been charged with corruption in a court in the commercial city of Johannesburg.
Duduzane Zuma is alleged to have been part of attempts to bribe a former deputy finance minister to agree to a top role in government.

Sierra Leone’s former Vice President Victor Foh and former Mines Minister Minkailu Mansaray were arrested on Thursday on charges of alleged corruption, a spokesman for the West African country’s anti-corruption commission said.
The arrests come the day after a separate commission appointed by President Julius Maada Bio alleged that corruption was “rampant” under his predecessor Ernest Koroma, including the theft of state property and the funneling of state contracts to officials’ relatives and close friends.

MANILA – Former Philippine President Benigno Aquino has been indicted in a $1.35 billion criminal case over his failure to get congressional approval to use state funds to jump-start major government projects, authorities said Wednesday.
The money became a source of controversy during Aquino’s term from 2010-2016, with critics claiming he used it to barter for favors from legislators. He has always denied any wrongdoing.

The second president of Armenia, Robert Kocharyan, has appeared in a Yerevan court after having been charged with “usurping state power,” a significant escalation in the new government’s legal campaign against the old regime.
Kocharyan, who has been living in Moscow, landed in Yerevan on the night of July 25 and the next day appeared for questioning at the offices of the Special Investigative Service (SIS). SIS immediately filed charges against Kocharyan and asked the Shengavit District court to detain him.

So it is not unheard of for former high level people, including heads of state, to face legal consequences for actions whilst they were holding office.

Yep, remember that Obama (as well as Clinton and Bush) sealed their documents for a 12 year period following the end of their office and recall also that Obama's presidential library will not house any actually documents, only virtual version of same and also remember that there was a period of time where a part of his documents were sent elsewhere and kept separate from the rest of his papers.
Things that make you go, "hmmm..."

KAWA POINTS TO THE TEMPESTSYSTEM, A NATO-CERTIFIED SYSTEM BY WHICH THE NSA TRACKS AND RECORDS SOUND THAT EMANATES WITHIN GOVERNMENT STRUCTURES.
“General Dynamics installs the recorders in the planes,” Kawa told Big League Politics. “(Lynch) could not have un-installed them if she wanted to.”

As we listen and watch, as Q makes drops, those that see and hear with a particular ability will be guided to pull back the layers, make the connections, sort through the information, and discard what is not needed, and then keep close to the vest what will be valuable later when facts are revealed and people are brought to justice.

his plan is to grow his personal brand and use the connections he's gaining to enrich his personal businesses... which is fairly obvious.
y'all are really overcomplicating this man and his self-serving motivations.

I'm looking forward to hearing this interview.
The interviewee says they've posted 3-4 times as Q.
That could be true...there have been 'fake' Q posts.
Wasn't 4chan also compromised?
