The ≠Obamagate hashtag is now trending on social media as new revelations emerged involving former President Barack Obama’s role in the case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and the now-debunked Russia investigation.
After one day the Department of Justice (DOJ) moved to drop criminal charges against Flynn, Obama was caught making false statements as he claimed that Flynn “has been charged with perjury” and there was “no precedent” for what the DOJ did with Flynn case.
Fox News reported last week that the DOJ’s newly released documents showed Obama knew about the details of Flynn’s phone call with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and “was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information.”
In light of new revelations involving Flynn case and DOJ’s decision, Sidney Powell, former federal prosecutor and Flynn’s lead attorney accused FBI agents of hiding their investigation and orchestrating a plot to trap her client, insisting that Obama himself was in on it.
“The whole thing was orchestrated and set up within the FBI, [former Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper, [Former CIA Director John] Brennan, and in the Oval Office meeting that day with President Obama,” Powell told Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” referencing the Jan. 5, 2017, meeting in the Oval Office.
When asked if she believed the plot went all the way up to Obama, Powell responded, “Absolutely.”
Investigators are reportedly looking into FBI’s decision to use the Logan Act—the likely unconstitutional 1799 law prohibiting private individuals from discussing foreign policy with foreign governments—against Flynn.
DEVELOPING: Investigators are looking into suspicions by Flynn’s legal team that President Obama directed FBI Director James Comey and Acting AG Sally Yates to investigate Flynn, using the Logan Act as predication, the day after the FBI closed a counterintelligence case on him.

Transcripts released by the House Intelligence Committee last week revealed that John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman in 2016, admitted under oath in 2017 that the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Campaign split the cost of the Steele dossier—which the FBI heavily relied on to obtain surveillance applications against a Trump campaign aide, reported the Gatewaypundit.

As mounting evidence showed Flynn was allegedly framed by the FBI agents, President Donald Trump said Flynn “was targeted by the Obama administration and he was targeted in order to try and take down a president.”
“I hope a lot of people are going to pay a big price, because they’re dishonest, crooked people. They’re scum, and I say it a lot, they’re scum, they’re human scum. This should never have happened in this country,” he added.
The hashtag now trends with 2.14 million tweets as of the time of writing on Sunday night, May 10. Here is a list TheBL collected.

Remember when liberals were all like, “Obama was such a great president, not a whiff of scandal in 8 years.”
Add #ObamaGate to the list of shit they completely ignored.
