Barack Obama thought the top story of 2019 would be about the fall of Donald Trump.

But he’s in for a rude surprise.

Instead, William Barr just delivered Obama a stunning defeat that could ruin his life forever.

The real story of the 2016 election appears to be that Democrats were the ones engaged in election collusion.

In control of the White House at the time, Democrats worked to use the power of the federal government to influence the outcome of the election by using a phony dossier that allies of Hillary Clinton paid for, and then they used that very dossier to get FBI warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.

Democrats tried to spin the story of the 2016 election into one of how the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to rig the election and steal it from Hillary Clinton, and they’ve used the mainstream media to push this narrative in the direction they were hoping for.

But their days of sweeping under the rug the Obama administration’s attempts to use the power of the FBI to make the race easier for Hillary Clinton may be finally over at last, all thanks to William Barr.

Fox News reports, “Attorney General William Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if intelligence collection efforts targeting the Trump campaign were lawful and appropriate.

“John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, will conduct the inquiry. The move comes as the Trump administration has pushed for answers on why federal authorities conducted the surveillance — as well as whether Democrats were the ones who improperly colluded with foreign actors.”

Democrats, led by Barack Obama and then-candidate Hillary Clinton, engaged in the dirtiest election tactics in modern political history, and they thought they could get away with it.

They thought Clinton would win the election and then the story would never emerge for the rest of the public to learn about.

And they were wrong.

Now that Trump is clear of the bogus Russian collusion charges, the real investigation into the Democrats’ attempts to steal the 2016 election can finally begin.

“Two sources told Fox News earlier today that Barr was ‘serious’ and had assigned DOJ personnel to the probe. Durham is known as a ‘hard-charging, bulldog’ prosecutor. Sources familiar with matter say the focus of the probe includes the pre-transition period — prior to Nov. 7, 2016 — including the use and initiation of informants, as well as potential Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses,” adds Fox News.

This could be a scandal of epic proportions, which is why the mainstream media isn’t covering it.

They know that Barack Obama himself could be implicated in a plot to steal the election from Trump and in massive abuses of spying powers that were used to conduct surveillance against the Trump campaign in 2016.

And Obama is hoping that none of this comes to pass.
