Obama Poisons the Swamp for Trump. “Trump Will Not Be President”

Paul Mansfield

Obama: “Not much happens in Russia without Vladimir Putin” 

As we are well and truly into the home stretch of Barack Obama’s failed, moribund presidency, the outgoing president is poisoning the swamp which Donald Trump pledged to drain. From a remarkable refusal to veto a resolution condemning Israeli settlements to the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats, Obama is doing everything he can to damage and delegitimise Trump before he assumes the presidency on 20 January. 

First and foremost on Obama’s vindictive agenda are actions seeking to destabilise and isolate Russia, his imaginary foe. Obama gave forewarning of the coming actions when he said in an interview on NPR“I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections . . . we need to take action. And we will — at a time and place of our own choosing. Some of it may be explicit and publicized; some of it may not be.”

The explicit, publicized side of Obama's wounded pride came in the form of the announcement of the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats which Obama provocatively called "intelligence operatives." According to RT:
Thirty-five Russian diplomats have been expelled from the US, with the president calling them "intelligence operatives" and also announcing the closure of two Russian compounds, in New York and Maryland.

According to Obama, nine Russian entities, including the GRU (Russian Military Intelligence) and the FSB (Federal Security Service), have been sanctioned.
In the absence of any tangible evidence being publicly presented, it is quite extraordinary that this and other as yet unknown anti-Russian actions are being taken. Obama clearly has other tricks up his sleeve, some which will fall into the covert category mirrored by Joe Biden who said he hoped the public won't find out about the covert actions.
