As the left-wing mobs seek to destroy and take down our duly-elected president, it’s amazing to not their blatant hypocrisy.
The regressive left is loudly decrying people in President Trump’s administration for attempting to establish so-called “back channel” communications with Russia. Meanwhile, they ignore Obama’s own actual back channels with the former Soviet Union.
Remember when Obama promised “more flexibility” to Putin? It didn’t stop there.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Obama administration had a “back channel” to communicate with Russian officials, according to a new report detailing Moscow’s efforts to delegitimize the U.S. presidential election results.
The news comes after Trump White House aide Jared Kushner was criticized for allegedly trying to open a back channel line of communications with Russian officials during the transition last year.
Former intelligence officials called Kushner’s alleged back channel communications with Russia “dangerous,” but now Bloomberg reports the Obama administration had its own back channel to Moscow.
The White House contacted the Kremlin on what Bloomberg described as a “modern-day red phone” after Russian operatives tried to infiltrate software and databases used by state election officials.
. . . . The White House provided evidence gathered on Russia’s hacking efforts and reasons why the U.S. considered it dangerously aggressive. Russia responded by asking for more information and providing assurances that it would look into the matter even as the hacking continued, according to the two people familiar with the response.
One bad action doesn’t excuse another, but at some point, we have to wonder why Obama was given a pass on things that Democrats are now finding not only outrageous but impeachable.
