In the final moments of his presidency, Barack Obama mused that he would be the first president to leave the White House without a major scandal. That, of course, is ridiculous. From Benghazi to the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal, the Obama administration had more than its fair share of scandalous moments.
But the only reason Obama was able to get away that lie was because his administration didn’t allow scandals to be investigated. Instead, they worked with the Justice Department to make sure that no Democrat was ever charged with criminal wrongdoing.
