At today’s Senate Judiciary hearing with former US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Senator Ted Cruz called out the Obama and Biden administration for what President Trump has called “Obamagate” which is the targeting their political enemies by weaponizing the intelligence community.
He said that the previous “worst known instance of abuse of power” by Richard Nixon paled in comparison. He said that “the evidence makes it clear” that they it “went right to the top.”

Prior to 2016 and 2017, the worst known instance of abuse of power by an administration was Richard Nixon’s abuse of his administration to target his political enemies. By any measure, what the Obama/Biden administration did in 2016 and 2017, makes everything Richard Nixon even contemplated pale in comparison, and Richard Nixon rightfully faced impeached and ultimately resigned as a consequence of his misconduct.
The evidence that has been made public makes clear that the Obama administration targeted his political opponents, targeted President Trump and his campaign, unleashed, weaponized, and politicized the Department of Justice, the FBI, and the intelligence community and the decision-making to do so went right up to the top.
This characterization didn’t sit well with Senator Amy Klobuchar, and she used some of her time, while laughing, to say that Obama “left the White House with grace and dignity.”
She said that she “would like the record to reflect that this comparison is not only wrong today between Richard Nixon and Barack Obama, it will never stand the test of time.”
I have to say, to compare Richard Nixon to Barack Obama, Richard Nixon who left the White House in disgrace, to compare him with President Obama, who left the White House with grace and dignity… no I would like the record to reflect that this comparison is not only wrong today between Richard Nixon and Barack Obama, it will never stand the test of time.
