It Wasn’t the Russians, No Matter What President Obama Wants to Tell Us

It’s January 3, 17 days until Inauguration Day.

Seventeen days until President Obama becomes former President Obama.

Seventeen days until he’s no longer in the White House, running the country (into the ground).

Yet Obama is working just as hard as ever to build his legacy of being one of the most inexcusably incorrect presidents America has ever known.

You probably heard how he kicked Russian diplomats out of D.C. to punish them for their supposed role in the hacking scandal that shook the Democratic National Committee last year.

That expulsion was rather ridiculous, to say the least. At best, it was like the proverbial farmer patching the fence after his horses escaped, considering how badly the Russians have behaved over the last eight to nine years, even without the hacking accusations.

At worst, it was a pathetic temper tantrum by an exiting president who knows the American people want nothing more to do with him.

And let’s face it. It’s probably the latter.

I’m not saying that because of what Real Clear Politics just reported. I concluded as much right after reading about the whole Russian diplomatic fiasco. It’s just that the latest news on the subject brought it back to mind.

WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange – the group and guy who disseminated the DNC’s private emails – has once again come out insisting that the Russians weren’t the ones who passed along all of that damning documentation, this time on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.

Here’s a snippet of the conversation:

Sean Hannity: Can you say to the American people, unequivocally, that you did not get this information about the DNC – John Podesta's emails – can you tell the American people 1,000% that you did not get it from Russia or anybody associated with Russia?

Julian Assange: Yes. We can say [and] we have said repeatedly… over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party… 

Our publications had wide uptake by the American people. They're all true. But that's not the allegation that’s being presented by the Obama White House. So why such a dramatic response? Well, the reason is obvious. They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House. They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate president.

So there you have it, right from the real horse’s mouth. It’s shocking that Obama would be so immature, right?
