Obama Stunned by DOJ Dropping Charges Against Flynn

In a private conversation with his associates, former President Barack Obama expressed concern about the DOJ dropping charges against Michael Flynn.

The audio clip was leaked by Yahoo News. In the clip, Obama speaks about the Justice Department dropping the charges against Flynn and how the episode is being underplayed.

Michael Flynn was President Trump’s National Security Advisor in the early days of his presidency. He resigned after being charged for lying to the FBI about his communications with the Russian Ambassador in Washington DC before Trump became president.

What did Obama Say About Flynn and the DOJ?

In the clip, Obama remarks on the unprecedented nature of the DOJ’s actions. The Justice Department dropping the charges against Flynn brings into question the basic understanding of the law, according to Obama.

Since he left office, President Obama hasn’t been vocally critical about Trump and his administration’s actions. This leaked audio would mark a rare instance when Obama’s feelings about the Trump admin have trickled into the public domain.

According to Yahoo News, the people on the call confirmed Obama’s comments. They also added the former president was in ‘quite the mood’.

Obama also talked about the coronavirus pandemic. He noted that the pandemic would have hit the country bad even if there was a good administration in office. He also called the ‘what’s in it for me’ mindset of the administration the reason for the chaos in handling the crisis.

Barr Says His Actions Within the Law

Attorney General Anthony Barr denied he dropped the charges against Flynn at Trump’s behest. He also added he was doing his duty towards the law as he saw fit.

Barr dropped the charges against Flynn on Thursday this week. After his decision to do so, Trump called Barr a man of ‘unbelievable credibility’ and ‘courage’.
