While every single move President Trump makes is under a microscope, this was never the case for Barack Obama. In fact, the Obama campaign was fined $375,000 for campaign finance donations, yet the State Department of New York completely passed on prosecuting Obama.
Fox News legal expert and best-selling author Gregg Jarrett teed off on New York State acting Attorney General Robert Khuzami and the group of “snot-nosed kids” and “morons” who put together the amateurish accusations against Michael Cohen and targeting President Donald Trump.
Remember, nothing was said when Obama was fined $375,000 for campaign reporting violations.
Why didn’t the SDNY prosecute him?

President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for campaign reporting violations — one of the largest fees ever levied against a presidential campaign, POLITICO has learned.
The fine — laid out in detail in FEC documents that have yet to be made public — arose from an audit of the campaign, which was published in April. POLITICO obtained a copy of the conciliation agreement detailing the fine, which was sent to Sean Cairncross, the chief lawyer for the Republican National Committee, one of the groups that filed complaints about the campaign’s FEC reporting from 2008…
…The major sticking point for the FEC appeared to be a series of missing 48-hour notices for nearly 1,300 contributions totaling more than $1.8 million — an issue that lawyers familiar with the commission’s work say the FEC takes seriously. The notices must be filed on contributions of $1,000 or more that are received within the 20-day window of Election Day.
More than half of those contributions were transferred from the Obama Victory Fund,a joint committee between the campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
New York can no longer even pretend that they are fair when it comes to President Trump and former President Obama. They are in attack mode all times when it comes to Trump. Barack Hussein Obama could do no wrong.
