A former top senior advisor and loyalist to President Barack Obama told Fox News Business host Maria Bartiromo Tuesday that the FBI’s false investigation into President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and that it conspired with Russia is old news and “why our focus isn’t what’s happening right now.”
This stunning statement came from Obama’s most loyal advisor Valerie Jarrett, who also stated that the investigators in the Trump Russia investigation behaved appropriately, despite a plethora of evidence suggesting otherwise.
Baritromo asked Jarrett, if former FBI Director James Comey knew that former British spy Christopher Steele’s dossier was garbage but he continued to renew warrants to spy on Carter Page, a member of the 2016 Trump campaign, shouldn’t he be prosecuted.
According to several government officials who spoke to SaraACarter.comm Comey is a central figure being investigated by the Justice Department’s criminal probe being headed by Connecticut prosecutor John Durham, who was appointed by Attorney General William Barr.
“Well, Maria look I have highly great confidence that our intelligence community, investigators comported themselves responsibly,” Jarrett said.
This “was nearly four years ago and I don’t understand why our focus isn’t on what’s happening right now,” Jarrett added.
Durham’s secret investigation is ongoing and is now a full scale criminal probe into the actions of Obama administration and FBI officials involved.
Jarrett’s comments are infuriating as she, along with so many others in the Obama administration, act as though there is a two tiered justice system.
The probe into Trump and his administration has torn the nation apart and put the nation’s security at risk. Yet, it appears that those involved in the illegal investigation operate with impunity and unless Durham brings indictments and exposes the full scale of what happened to the Trump administration it could happen again.
The malfeasance was widespread in the FBI and now evidence suggested that the most senior members of Obama’s administration were aware that there was no evidence to suggest members of the Trump campaign conspired with Russia. However, it didn’t stop the FBI agents – who were opposed to Trump’s presidency- from continuing their illegal investigation into the President and his team.
Those officials weaponized the intelligence and federal law enforcement apparatus for political purposes. It should never be allowed to happen again.
The investigation was illegal. Just look at the evidence discovered by investigators and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz with regard to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Application warrant submitted to the secret court by the FBI.
FBI special agent Kevin Clinesmith, along with others, omitted exculpatory information and inserted flat out lies in the Carter Page application, who was a short term volunteer.
The same apparent bureau corruption existed in the FBI’s investigation into former Trump national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Flynn was strong armed into pleading guilty and has since dropped his plea. The DOJ is also asking for his case to be thrown out of court.
After nearly three years, it was discovered that there was absolutely no derogatory information on Flynn, or those he communicated with, or that he was conspiring with Russia. In fact, Flynn continued throughout to hold the highest level of security clearance and should have never been investigated.
It took roughly four years of investigations by Congress, the Department of Justice, the DOJ’s Inspector General and journalists to unearth mountains of evidence showing Obama’s senior FBI, State Department and Justice officials were complicit in what appeared to be an attempt to hijack the election and then remove President Trump from office.
Those investigating the FBI’s malfeasance have stated that senior members of the Obama administration should be investigated as well and it is uncertain if Durham will issue a report or indict people connected to the Trump probe before the November presidential election.
Jarrett may want us to forget what happened four years ago but that will never be the case.
Why? Because for the past four years our nation has been reeling from the corruption initiated by the Obama administration and those who were aware of it need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
We can’t forget what happened. Our nation’s fundamental principals are at stake. If people aren’t held accountable our nation will fundamentally change forever and the corrupted bureaucrats will win.
Sorry Jarrett, we cannot afford a two-tiered justice system.

Biden Administration Proposes Rule to Fortify Federal Bureaucracy Against Republican Presidency
In a strategic move, the Biden administration has unveiled a proposed rule aimed at reinforcing the left-leaning federal bureaucracy, potentially hindering future conservative policy implementations by Republican presidents. This move has raised concerns about the efficacy of democratic elections when a deep-seated bureaucracy remains largely unchanged, regardless of electoral outcomes.
Key points of the situation include:
Presidential Appointees vs. Career Bureaucrats: Of the 2.2 million federal civil workers, only 4,000 are presidential appointees. The vast majority, made up of career bureaucrats, continue in their roles from one administration to the next. This continuity is facilitated by rules that make it exceedingly difficult to discipline or replace them, resulting in a bureaucracy that tends to lean left politically.
Union Political Affiliation: A striking 95% of unionized federal employees who donate to political candidates support Democrats, according to Open Secrets, with only 5% favoring Republicans. This significant political skew among federal workers raises questions about the potential for political bias in the execution of government policies.
Obstructionism and Challenges for GOP Presidents: Some career bureaucrats have been accused of obstructing Republican presidents’ agendas, leading to policy delays and challenges. For example, during the Trump administration, career lawyers in the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division declined to challenge Yale University’s discrimination against Asian American applicants, prompting Trump to seek legal counsel from other divisions. The case was subsequently dropped when Joe Biden took office.
Biden’s Countermeasures: President Biden has taken steps to protect the bureaucracy’s status quo. In October 2020, Trump issued an executive order aiming to reclassify federal workers who make policy as at-will employees, but Biden canceled it upon taking office.
Proposed Rule and Congressional Actions: The rule unveiled by the Biden administration seeks to further impede a president’s ability to reinstate Trump’s order. Additionally, some Democrats in Congress are pushing to eliminate the president’s authority to reclassify jobs entirely. This has been referred to as an attempt to “Trump-proof the federal workforce.”
Republican Candidates’ Pledge: GOP candidates such as President Donald J Trump, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Ron DeSantis have pledged to address this issue. According to reports from Fox News, Ramaswamy has gone further, advocating for the elimination of half or more of civil service positions, emphasizing the need for accountability.
Debate on the Merit of the Civil Service: While Democrats and their media allies argue that civil service protects merit over patronage, critics contend that the system has evolved into a form of job security for federal workers with minimal accountability. Federal employees often receive higher salaries and more substantial benefits than their private-sector counterparts.
In summary, the Biden administration’s proposed rule and broader actions to protect the federal bureaucracy have sparked a debate over the role of career bureaucrats in shaping government policy.
Republican candidates are vowing to address these concerns, highlighting the need for accountability and ensuring that government agencies work in alignment with the elected president’s agenda. This ongoing debate raises important questions about the relationship between the bureaucracy and the democratic process in the United States.
