Trump escalates feud with Obama, insists ex-president was involved in ‘crime’

Critics, including almost 2,000 former DOJ officials, have argued the move was part of a pattern of Barr looking to undermine an investigation that was politically damaging for President Donald Trump.

When pressed for details, the commander in chief told a Washington Post reporter, "You know the crime".

"The biggest political crime in American history, by far!"

Another tweet simply read, "OBAMAGATE!". However, a recent audio clip revealed that Obama has an issue with the current administration's response during the crisis.

Former President Barack Obama has remained relatively quiet over the course of the last few months, only popping up occasionally to offer some comforting messages during these stressful pandemic days.

The president's Twitter spree came several days after his predecessor criticized the Justice Department's dismissal of its case against Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, who had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in the agency's investigation into the Trump 2016 campaign's ties to Russian Federation.

Speaking on a call with the Obama Alumni Association, Obama reportedly slammed Trump's fumbling of the crisis, calling it "an absolute chaotic disaster".

"That's the kind of stuff where you begin to get anxious that basic - not just institutional norms - but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk".

Sioux tribe rejects governor's request to remove checkpoints
Tribes are meant to get permission from state authorities if they want to close or restrict travel inside their reservations. Late last month, the Bureau of Indian Affairs said the tribes can not set up checkpoints without consulting with the state.

"There is no precedent that anybody can find for somebody who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free", Obama added.

Obama also had sharp criticism for the Justice Department's decision to drop its criminal case against Trump's former national security adviser, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who had pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russia's ambassador.

Flynn later pleaded guilty to having made false statements to the FBI, which had questioned him as part of the broader Trump-Russia investigation. "It would have been bad even with the best of governments".

It has also been revealed that the operation targeting Flynn found no evidence implicating the general in "colluding" with Russian Federation and would have been closed if then-FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok, later fired for anti-Trump text messages, had not intervened to keep the case open.

Speaking of the Michael Flynn case, The Daily Mail reports that Flynn's attorney, Sidney Powell now claims that the former president was also involved with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to frame Flynn.

Obama's unexpectedly intimate knowledge of the details of Flynn's calls, which the Federal Bureau of Investigation acknowledged at the time were not criminal or even improper, raised eyebrows because of his own history with Flynn - and because top Federal Bureau of Investigation officials secretly discussed whether their "goal" was "to get [Flynn] to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired" when they interviewed him in the White House on January 24, 2017.

However, Obama's office refused to make any comments over it.
