Ben Rhodes lies through his teeth about SpyGate


Sara CarterFormer deputy national security advisor to President Obama, Ben Rhodes said that Attorney General William Barr and the Department of Justice “will find nothing” on the Obama White House, according to PJ Media. Moreover, Rhodes said there is no evidence that the Obama White House was involved in the Trump campaign and Russian collusion investigation.

“No, no, I cannot be clear enough about this. We didn’t even know there was an FBI investigation of Trump. I didn’t. President Obama didn’t, like, we actually abided by the firewalls between – if there were any investigations that took place, those decisions were made in the Justice Department, in the FBI, not in the White House,” Rhodes said Thursday following a talk at Georgetown University about his book The World as It Is: A Memoir of the Obama White House.

On the dossier, Rhodes grew increasingly defensive saying,”We had nothing to do with this dossier. ”

Rhodes continued, “I’m not an investigator. I haven’t even read this whole dossier. You guys are focused on this. Have fun, have your witch-hunt. We did not initiate this.”

We have text messages from the Page/Strzok pair saying that the White House was running the investigation, or at least thinks they were. We have meetings between DOJ, FBI, and White House representatives. We have Rice's last minute "by the book" email proving that Obama knew at some point before the transition happened.

And we have allegations that the spying goes all the way back to 2012. Let me remind you that's about the same time the IRS spying stopped because they got caught.

When you start taking flak, you know you're over the target.

What did you know and when did you know it, Ben?

You know, if you have nothing to hide, you won't mind if Barr and Horowitz subpoena all of your emails and phone calls and meeting notes and go through them with a fine toothed comb, right? After all, the Special Counsel issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, executed nearly 500 search warrants, obtained more than 230 orders for communication records, issued almost 50 orders authorizing use of pen registers, made 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence, and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses.

The investigation into SpyGate should be at least as vigorous.
