Barack Obama just doesn’t get it, he is no longer president because voters rejected his kind of politics in favor of a more rational form as given to us by Trump.
Now he has formed a group called ‘United to Protect Democracy’ who’s sole purpose is to undermine Trump and his administration.
Politico reported that the lawyers who worked with Obama in the White House have now gathered a whole new group, whose goal is to undermine Donald Trump and his staffers, because they believe that Trump’s Office will somehow break the rules.
The formed group is known as United to Protect Democracy (UPD), a line that was incorporated in Obama’s speech before he left office.
Up to now, the group has raised$1.5 million resources, as well as hired five people to work for them, a number that is expected to double in the next few months.
The group falls under 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4), meaning it can serve as a nonprofit organization and participate in certain political decisions.
One of the plans this group has is to try and dig up news that has not hit the media yet and to intervene within the White House if it is necessary.
“When people hear concerns about democracies declining into authoritarianism, they expect that moment to come in a singular thunderclap where everyone can see that this is the time,” said Ian Bassin, the leader of the new group. “In reality, often times, democracies decline over a period of years that happen through a series of much smaller steps.”
One person that shall take an active part in this group is Bassin, who worked as Obama’s associate, dealing with ethics issues.
As we learned, he has been looking for lawyers with a similar background who will join him on this mission.
“As people who had the privilege of serving at the highest level of our government, we understand those guardrails, where people might come up against them and what the tools are that we have as private citizens to hold our government accountable,” Bassin said.
Sean Spicer responded to the formation of the group, saying, “This administration has raised the level of ethics training and oversight to a new level compared to the practices of the previous administration.”
Do you think Obama is a traitor?
