#Obamagate. I love this hashtag. It doesn’t skirt the issue.
It gets right to the heart of our national political divide. #Obamagate is the equivalent of using the words Wuhan flu. It’s reality, anti-Orwellian.
So when the White House press corps asked what #Obamagate meant, press secretary Kayleigh McEnamy, our latest and greatest Princess Warrior, said it included this, "The Steele Dossier funded by the DNC . . . used to obtain FISA warrants . . . The unmasking of the identity of Michael Flynn. . . The FBI notes . . . A criminal leak to the press . . . Andy McCabe leaking to The Wall Street Journal . . . James Clapper lying before Congress . . . John Brennan saying the Steele Dossier played no role in the Russian probe."
I love Kayleigh McEnamy.
When I talk about #Obamagate, I use a simpler explanation -- lying and spying."
That says it all. We’ve seen lots of pieces of the puzzle and we know more are coming.
The political landscape will be upended. Stars will rise and stars will fall.
The first fallen star? Michelle Obama. Michelle Obama?
What does she have to do with #Obamagate? Let’s connect some dots.
Once upon a time Michelle Obama was the dream of the Democrats and the nightmare of the Republicans. Had Michelle announced a presidential run in 2019 all 30 of the Democratic candidates would have folded their tents.
The Democrats would have a totally unified party against President Donald J. Trump.
Turnout would be expected to go through the roof and the early polling would have Michelle with a landslide lead over President Trump, (without the fudge factor).
First, we have to give credit where credit is due.
Michelle Obama has never indicated a desire to run for national office.
She is definitely not Hillary Clinton.
Furthermore, the Obamas came to the White House with a a net worth of $1.3 million.
A few months after they left (in January, 2017), they were worth $140 million. (Thanks to Netflix).
She also has her oceanfront mansion on Martha’s Vineyard (now that the seas stopped rising). Who needs the aggravation of a presidential run plus eight years of all pressure all the time? But more importantly, once the Mueller Report went public, the Obamas knew that the future was one of diminished respect.
She could still have the nomination, but not the presidency.
Because the Trump administration would find its legs, that #Obamagate was inevitable, that there would be a Barr, a Grinell, a Nunes, a Graham, plus John Solomon, Sara A. Carter, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham; an entire infrastructure devoted to getting the truth out.
The Obamas may have known about the January 5, 2017 meeting in the Oval Office. So, no, Michelle Obama may have gathered she could not have the presidency (even if she wanted it) and Barack Obama may have realized he would have to fight just to maintain a smidgen of respect for himself.
As for Joe Biden’s vice presidential nominee, we know it won’t be Michelle Obama.
What happens next? In Shakespeare's play, "The Tempest," we learn, "What's past is prologue."
You bet it is.
Remember Russia, Russia, Russia? The Steele Dossier? Adam Schiff? Jerry Nadler? Rachel Maddow? James Comey? Jim Acosta? The Ukraine Ambassador? Hunter Biden? Impeachment? On and on it goes. As we (former) Brooklynites like to say, "Fuhgeddaboutit!" "You ain’t seen nothing yet."
As we emerge from our awful "Corona Spring," we head right into our #Obamagate Summer. Our entire country thinks that the November election will be a referendum on President Trump’s handling of the pandemic.
The entire nation is wrong.
Get ready for the "Guns of August," the "War of the Worlds," the "Clash of the Titans,” as well as the "Gunfight at the OK Corral."
This August, Attorney General William Barr and Chief Prosecutor John Durham will release the #Obamagate Reports.
The memory of the trickle of Watergate will fade before the Niagara Falls of #Obamagate.
Politics will never be the same.
Laws will be passed.
Accusations will be hurled.
Hearings will be held. It will be the ultimate clash between the permanent Deep State and the Trump insurgency. This epic battle will commence on the day the report is released and will end on Nob. 3, 2020.
On Nov. 4 we will know and have the victor.
