Someone please tell me why this obama crime (among countless others) never got prosecuted.



Flashback: Obama Offered $150,000 Bribe to Silence Crackpot Preacher Jeremiah Wright – No Charges Were Filed




The Mueller Special Counsel and New York District Attorney’s Office seek to destroy President Trump for paying out $130,000 in hush money to two former paramours.




Barack Obama also offered hush money to a close associate before the 2008 election. Barack Obama’s crackpot anti-Semitic and anti-American pastor caused a stir in the summer of 2008 after video was released of the pastor screaming, “Goddam America” from his church pulpit. Obama’s “closest friends” sent Reverend Wright an email offering him $150,000 in hush money to go silent before the election. And he did.

Double standard much?

Good luck, I agree 100% any actual attempt to get trump impeached over this will be just about the maximum level of hypocrisy.


So of course the DNC will grab this and run with it, assuming everybody is to stupid to see it.

How about our Congresscritters and that secret sluch fund to pay off victims of sexual misconduct by our elected officials??

Why isn't heads rolling for that?

There always seems to be a double standard when it comes to issues regarding the left.

That to, I would have zero heartburn for any member of congress being stripped of their seat and pension for using that tax payer slush fund to pay off people they assaulted.

Because no one was going to charge the first black president with a crime, and no one was going to try to impeach him over something like that in his first term.

It's all politics--intellectual honesty and consistency be damned.

I would have to research the specifics before giving a better answer, though. One thing that Trump has going for him is that he did NOT sign the NDA...

Hell, if I was Trump, I would openly threaten to read off the list of Representatives and Senators who've used that fund, and the amounts involved, if they try to impeach him. Because yeah, the hypocrisy is sickening. Paying off bimbos to STFU? Getting journalists to kill stories unfavorable to you? That stuff happens all the time in Washington, and nobody cares. But they're desperate to bring down Trump, and apparently this is the best they can do.

Because their hatred blinds them to justice. Because they have abandoned principle. Because they're fakes.

I dont see how offering someone hush money is a crime unless you are paying them to lie under oath or to cover up a crime.

Where the hush money came from could be an issue though.

Any impeachment would die in Senate anyways (2/3 vote)! They know this, DNC are just posturing for the Sheeple!

Of course there is a double standard

2 years of wiretaps, raiding lawyers at night, looking at decades old crimes

And they come up with trump paid some ladies he slept with

The same thing congress has a fund for

The same campaign finance laws Obama seemed to have broken

None of the anti trump people will care

Trump needs to be impeached imprisoned and inquisited no matter what

Lesson learned: no politicians are allowed to criticize the intel community

Now please, can we join our friends in the democratic party and get back to cheering on the intel community is starting wars all over the world?

Ultimately, it's Trump's money. I don't see where anyone has a credible argument that campaign funds were used.

Exactly what is the "Obama crime" you are alleging? What Wright claimed was that a friend of Obama, via an intermediary (a member of Wright's congregation) offered him $150k to not do any public speaking until after the election.

Assuming that the person who approached Wright was on the level, there's no proof that Obama or anyone in his campaign knew anything about it. More importantly, no money was ever exchanged so there's no possibility of a violation.

... what? You mean the time that one of Obama's friends offered to pay reverend Wright $150,000 to shut up? You know why nothing ever came of that? Because it didn't happen. He didn't receive any money. Obama asked him, personally, to stop saying stupid things until after the presidency and he did.

All this information is in the link you posted, but it's all presented in a way to make it seem nefarious.

This is the equivalency? "Well, A friend of Obama's once offered money to shut up Obama's pastor from saying stupid things, but no money was actually exchanged, So obviously it should be fine for a candidate to pay off porn stars to shut up about multiple affairs before an election."

Well, just to play devil's advocate and take your thread at total face value... I will say that Obama did seem to possess the simple ability to 'keep his mouth shut'!

It's a technique used to avoid criminal prosecution, which even the most low end criminals in society seem to be able to grasp... Yet not Trump.

He's constantly melting down and ranting on about potentially self incriminating nonsense on twitter.

I guarantee ya, if Trump ever does personally go down... It will be because he just couldn't keep his mouth shut.

That's a fair assessment.

Congress literally has a slush fund to do exactly what Trump is being accused of, and it's funded with taxpayer money. I'm supposed to give them a pass, but be upset that Trump supposedly used his own money to keep the bimbos quiet?

As for "catch & kill" the MSM does it all the time. There were multiple men who claimed to be former lovers of Barack Obama, but the MSM would never report on it. Do you think it's a coincidence that they aren't willing to talk about the Uranium 1 scandal, or the investigations into the Clinton Foundation?

Also, the Obama campaign was fined hundreds of thousands of dollars for collecting millions of dollars in contributions illegally. It was the largest fine ever levelled against a campaign. Nobody ever pursued charges against him.

It all goes back to the glaring hypocrisy and the obvious double-standard.

Wright also said after the offer Obama himself met him and asked him to keep quiet


I am unaware of the laws, but is offering a bribe legal, but paying an extortionist is not

Seems counterintuitive

It is a Globalist vs Nationalst. It is Left vs Right. It is the moral superior vs the deplorable.

Justice is NOT blind!
