James Comey and the FBI got some bad news.
They tried to bury a secret about the Russia investigation.
But a Judge just exposed the one thing they hoped to keep hidden from the public.
Judge Andrew Napolitano appeared on Fox News and revealed one simple truth about the alleged Russian meddling.
The meddling started in 2014, so whatever happened during the election was on Barack Obama and James Comey’s watch.
Stopping the Russians was their job, and the real scandal is their conduct – not Donald Trump’s or his campaign’s.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano blamed former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey for failing to stop Russian election interference and said it all occurred on former President Barack Obama’s watch.
“The NSA is so thorough in it’s listening to conversations and capturing emails. Why didn’t they capture this,” Napolitano asked. “Why didn’t the FBI know about what was going on? If you know, Jim Comey, that this is happening — why don’t you stop it?!”
“This happened on Obama’s watch,” he said.”
Donald Trump has made a similar case on twitter.
Obama was President up to, and beyond, the 2016 Election. So why didn’t he do something about Russian meddling?

18 months of federal investigations have produced zero evidence of collusion with Russia.
But there are piles of evidence that the FBI’s conduct is the real scandal.
Comey and Obama administration officials weaponized the surveillance state to spy on Trump campaign aides.
The FBI was so consumed with trying to tip the election to Clinton and then ruining Trump’s Presidency that they let the alleged Russian meddling slip right under their noses.
Instead of investigating the real scandal – the FBI and Obama administration’s conduct – America has been consumed by the fake scandal of Trump’s collusion with Russia.
Three congressional investigations, the FBI, and special counsel Robert Mueller have produced exactly zero on that front.
