We have all seen in the past few days the fake news media bring up Donald Trumps background in business and demanding to see his tax returns. The New York Times claimed that Trump lost so much money in the 80s and 90s he did not have to pay taxes. Kind of ironic for a guy who at one point was worth over five billion dollars the fake news media loves to pretend Trump was not a success. The fact is he has accumulated a $3.5 billion dollar net worth off of a million dollar loan from his father.
Why were the Obama’s past not under the same scrutiny? Neither made a lot of money by lawyer standards and it is almost impossible to find examples of their work. Barack Obama forfeited his license in 2007 and Michelle Obama forfeited hers in 1994.
Kind of odd dont ya think?
Rumors have circulated since at least 2012 that the Obama’s “voluntarily” gave up their law license to escape scrutiny and investigations.
Voluntary Surrender is not something where you decide “Gee, a license is not something I need anymore, is it?” and forget to renew. Nope, a “Voluntary Surrender” is something you do when you’ve been accused of something, and you ‘voluntarily surrender” your license five minutes before the state suspends your license.
Michelle Obama “voluntarily surrendered” her law license in 1993. after a Federal Judge gave her the choice between surrendering her license or standing trial for Insurance fraud!Source
President Obama graduated fromHarvard Law School in 1991 and was admitted as a lawyer by the Supreme Court of Illinois on Dec. 17, 1991. Prior to being elected to the Illinois state Senate in 1996, he worked as a civil rights lawyer at the firm formerly known as Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Four days after Obama announced that he would run for president in February 2007, he voluntarily elected to have his law license placed on “inactive” status, according to Grogan. Then, after becoming president, he elected to change his status to “retired” in February 2009.
Michelle Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1988, and was admitted as a lawyer by the Supreme Court of Illinois on May 12, 1989. Following graduation, she joined Sidley Austin, a corporate law firm in Chicago. But a few years later, in 1994, while working for the Public Allies project in Chicago, Obama voluntarily had her license placed on “inactive” status.The Obamas haven’t said exactly what prompted them to change the status of their licenses.Source factcheck.org
President Trump is criticized based off his success while the Obama’s escape criticism because of their lack of success. The double standard in the news media is obvious.
Wouldn’t we all love to know why the Obama’s scrambled to give up their law licenses that took so long to achieve?
Sounds like they have something to hide.
