President Obama: ‘We Do Not Operate On Innuendo,’ Unless It’s An Officer-Involved Shooting

President Obama: ‘We Do Not Operate On Innuendo,’ Unless It’s An Officer-Involved Shooting

In a recent interview, President Obama declined to indict Hillary Clinton in the FBI investigation citing “innuendo” and “incomplete investigation,” but his history reflects a pattern of preemptively indicting officers involved in shootings involving black men.

President Obama gave an exclusive interview with NowThis News which was reportedly filmed Tuesday November 1, 2016. In that interview the president briefly addressed the recently reopened FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private server and the sharing of classified information in several emails. When the topic of the FBI investigation came up, President Obama refrained from offering an indictment of his former Secretary of State citing what must be a newfound belief of withholding judgment until an investigation is completed.

In the interview, the president said:

I do think that there is a norm that when there are investigations, we don’t operate on innuendo, and we don’t operate on incomplete information, and we don’t operate on leaks. We operate based on concrete decisions that are made. When this was investigated thoroughly last time, the conclusion of the FBI, the conclusion of the Justice Department, the conclusion of repeated congressional investigations, was she had made some mistakes but that there wasn’t anything there that was prosecutable.

Obama’s response to the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton sounds like a responsible position to take doesn’t it? The only problem is that President Obama has repeatedly, and unapologetically prejudged, and in some cases convicted, police officers that were involved in shooting investigations that involved the death of a black person.

In August 2014 an 18-year-old violent criminal named Michael Brown was fatally shot by Ferguson Police Department Officer Darren Wilson during a violent attack. Michael Brown had just robbed a store, and when contacted by Officer Wilson, Brown assaulted Officer Wilson and attempted to take his gun. Officer Wilson was found to have been justified in this shooting at all levels in the investigation by President Obama’s own Department of Justice.

Only days after Michael Brown’s death President Obama gave a speech from a podium at the Congressional Black Caucus in which he had absolutely no reservations about “operating on innuendo” or presuming based upon “incomplete information”. Instead, President Obama offered a racially charged indictment of not only Officer Darren Wilson, but also the entire law enforcement community. Speaking in reference to the Michael Brown shooting, the president said it exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that, “stains the heart of black children.” To this day, President Obama has failed to offer a retraction for his preemptive irresponsible statements that subsequently contributed to the tragic deaths heroes.

In December 2014, the president responded to the death of Eric Garner. Garner died of a medical emergency after being taken into custody. “This is an American problem. When anybody in this country is not being treated equally under the law, that’s a problem. And it’s my job as President to help solve it,” President Obama said.

Not long after President Obama made those inflammatory statements, two New York Police Department officers were assassinated while sitting in their patrol car. Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were murdered by a crazed man name Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley who beleived the false narrative being spread by Black Lives Matter and President Obama. The president appeared to realize that words have consequences, and he said that he was so “overcome with anguish” that it prompted him to make a phone call to the NYPD police commissioner to offer condolences, before then dispatching his vice president to attend the funeral.

In relation to the Freddie Gray case in Baltimore where six Baltimore police officers were indicted by State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, President Obama again threw responsibility to the wind, and he had no problem at all making statements for which he was “operating on innuendo” while using “incomplete information.” Ultimately all six Baltimore officers had their multiple charges dropped when Judge Barry Williams ruled that there was no evidence of any wrongdoing by any of the officers, and no information to support any charges against officers.

In reference to the Freddie Gray case, President Obama said:

“We have some soul-searching to do. This is not new. It’s been going on for decades. The good news is that perhaps there’s some newfound awareness, because of social media and video cameras and so forth, that there are problems and challenges when it comes to how policing and our laws are applied in certain communities and we have to pay attention to it.”

In what was possibly his worse offense, the president explicitly called out officers in the shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. President Obama told America that the shootings were part of a problem with the criminal justice system:

These are not isolated incidents. They’re symptomatic of a broader set of racial disparities that exist in our criminal justice system.

The president cherry-picked statistics to tell Americans how law enforcement is systempically racist. Hours later, five heroes were assassinated in Dallas by a terrorist who internalized this messaging persented by our president and Black Lives Matter. After the shooting, President Obama backpedaled on someof his comments, apparently remembering that his words have consequences.

Now after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton became the focus of a FBI criminal investigation (for the second time,) President Obama has had a moral epiphany about the importance of not making irresponsible statements based on innuendo, and incomplete investigation information. Perhaps if he had adhered to this philosophy throughout his entire presidency, then maybe our murdered heroes would still be alive.
