Leak Alert! Russia’s Not Keeping Obama’s Secrets Any Longer
In an epic smackdown, Moscow exposed Obama’s “strange” habits regarding U.S.-Russia diplomatic relations.
Adding insult to injury, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova revealed that the Obama administration asked Moscow to keep secrets for him.
But Russia won’t keep those secrets much longer. At least not unless Trump repairs the shambles in which Obama left U.S.-Russian diplomatic relations.
Russia trashed the “transparency” president’s State Department for its tradition of leaking information meant to be kept private.
As Zakharova explained:
“Over the past few years we’ve seen many strange things happen in Washington…. The U.S. Department of State has more than once asked us not to announce planned visits until the last minute. … We did as they asked. But a day or two later the information was leaked by the U.S. State Department and sometimes by the [Obama] administration. Frankly, this put Russia and the media in a strange situation, because they didn’t know who to believe – the official agencies or the many leaks.”
Then Moscow’s foreign minister disclosed how different Russia’s approach to the U.S. will be under Trump, compared to Obama. Russia says it became necessary to block bilateral relations with the U.S. under President Obama. With Trump, Russia is ready to rebuild the relationship.
“We said that we were willing to work with the new U.S. administration, under President Trump. … Simply, we should start concrete practical work.”
Expressing great concern over the leaky Obama White House, Zakharova’s statements implicate Obama in multiple crimes.
Obama Crime No. 1 – Colluding with a Foreign Power to keep state secrets.
Zakharova bashed Obama’s record of leaking. She then promised that Russia will return the favor if this tradition is not reversed by Trump.
“Also, I would like to say that if the practice of leaking information that concerns not just the United States but also Russia, which has become a tradition in Washington in the past few years, continues, there will come a day when the media will publish leaks about the things that Washington asked U.S. to keep secret, for example, things that happened during President Obama’s terms in office. Believe me, this could be very interesting information.”
Obama Crime No. 2 – Sharing State Secrets with a Foreign Government
Russia’s foreign minister then warned the former president to stop his operatives still hiding in the vast U.S. federal bureaucracy from breaking the law:
“We can only assume that if Obama loyalists still hiding in the White House continue to leak intelligence, it’s inevitable that Russia will drop a bomb about Obama.”
If this story was about President Trump, an impeachment trial would already be underway by congressional Democrats. Instead, the mainstream liberal media stands mute.
Other areas in which Zakharova’s condemned Obama included the following:
- Being stupid while president
- Bypassing congressional checks and balances by engaging privately with a foreign power
- Utter contempt for American democracy
- Governing outside the consent the people
Let’s hope Obama calls the Russians’ bluff. I’d really like to see what information (or disinformation) the Russians could pull off on Obama. He would certainly deserve it.
