Former President Barack Obama

President Donald Trump is baselessly accusing the Obama administration of "treason," following the news the Dept. of Justice has dropped all charges against his former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, despite Flynn having pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

"The Obama administration Justice Department was a disgrace, and they got caught, they got caught," Trump claimed, which is false. "Very dishonest people, but much more than – it's treason, it's treason."


Trump (video below) repeatedly called the Obama DOJ "scum," "human scum," and "dishonest crooked people."

Trump also falsely called Flynn "an innocent man," one of several "fine people," and claimed – also falsely – that "he was targeted by the Obama administration."

"He was targeted in order to try to take down a president," Trump said, which is not only false but illogical. Flynn's arrest and trial did not "take down" Trump, nor has Flynn been exonerated.

"What they've done is a disgrace and I hope a big price is going to be paid," Trump continued, nonsensically.

Trump claimed he "didn't know" the DOJ would be dropping the charges "at this moment," and claimed he "felt" it was going to happen "just by watching and seeing like everybody else does." There is no reason to believe the Attorney General did not inform the president of his intention to drop the charges after Trump has repeatedly given the appearance he might pardon Flynn.

Chris Johnson, chief political and White House reporter for the Washington Blade, asked McEnany if Trump would reconsider the ban on transgender people in the military after 116 Democratic House lawmakers sent a letter last week to Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Attorney General William Barr calling for the Pentagon to end the policy.
