The Obamagate allegations that President Trump is spreading aren't based on fact, writes Alex Shepard of The New Republic. He is using this story to distract from the fact that his administration had completely mishandled the outbreak of COVID-19, which has ravaged the country. Trump and his supporters love the idea of Obama as a villain who sought to undermine Trump and America. But that didn't happen. Michael Flynn pled guilty to the charges he was accused of. Several other people Trump worked with now sit in jail because they broke the law. Obamagate didn't happen; it is being used to rile up conservative America.
President Trump is right that we need to look into the Obamagate matter further, holds David Harsanyi of National Review. The Russiagate investigation that Obama started was based on opposition research by Hillary Clinton's campaign. The Department of Justice withheld key information while warrants were enforced erroneously. Members of the Obama administration sought to reveal Trump allies under investigation several times. The power of the White House was used to find damaging information about people close to Trump. While Obama himself is likely innocent, several incidents point to foul play in the Russiagate investigation.
