FULL TITLE: Former Obama Advisor: Investigating Origins of Russia Probe 'Waste of Time,' 'They Will Find Nothing'
WASHINGTON Ben Rhodes, former deputy national security advisor to President Obama, said U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr and the Justice Department will find nothing that shows former President Obama or White House staff had any political involvement in the origins of the Trump campaign and Russia collusion investigation during Obama's time in office.
Rhodes was asked if he thinks the DOJ will find anything during the investigation.
No, no, I cannot be clear enough about this. We didnt even know there was an FBI investigation of Trump. I didnt. President Obama didnt, like, we actually abided by the firewalls between if there were any investigations that took place, those decisions were made in the Justice Department, in the FBI, not in the White House, Rhodes said about the DOJ probe after a discussion at Georgetown University about his book The World as It Is: A Memoir of the Obama White House on Thursday evening.
They will find nothing that suggests there was any political or White House involvement in any of that. Literally, I learned about the FBI investigation of Trump as a private citizen in the frickin Washington Post. So, you have to understand, we actually abided by the longstanding practice of the White House not getting involved in that kind of stuff, he added.
The DOJ Inspector General is currently investigating the origins of the Russia probe during the Obama years. The final redacted Mueller report was released last week.

How can you tell when an Obamaroid is lying?
IOW, Benny. GUILTY as hell
Let me guess..Obama will claim he first heard about this on the news
Investigating “Russian Collusion” was a waste of time and Trump said they would find nothing, and they found nothing, so it’s only fair to waste time and money finding out why so much time and money was wasted. Mmmmkay, Ben?
This guy is one of the most irritating propagandists for the Democrats I’ve encountered - and that’s saying a lot.
Dems on Trump Russia Collusion: ‘They Will Find Everything’
He sounds nervous.
Yes, that guy is right at the top of the pile with the other putrid scum.
They think they hid the evidence so well, that it cannot be found.
I hope they will find them and expose these people.
I’ll bet about $25-30 million(in gubment funds) that they will find something.
Let’s spend about $25 million and see if they can dig up anything. How does that sound lefty traitors?
Fudge! we don’t even have to spend that much money the sh!t they did is already known. Start with Hillary-$$$ -> some law firm-$$ -> Steele-$ etc. Follow the money.
Can’t wait for the hanging parties, I know I will take that day off and it will some of the best days of my life!
So if they did nothing wrong they shouldnt have a problem with an investigation that goes deep into their lives.
I think they have found something, Ben.
Is this the same Ben Rhodes that bragged About lieing to the press?
Ben your ass will be in jail. Take that to the bank. And rot there. Wasnt he the fiction writer for Obamas White House? Talk about a true believer.
