Do you remember that time the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton’s emails? And wasn’t it amazing when President Obama got involved and just made them shut down the investigation because he just knew it was a witch hunt?

And remember when the president had his team of lawyers draft a brief to explain why they felt that President Obama had the absolute right to do so, and then conservatives completely agreed once they read the watertight legal argument?

Remember that? I’ve even posted an excerpt here:

“Indeed, the President not only has unfettered statutory and Constitutional authority to terminate the FBI Director, he also has Constitutional authority to direct the Justice Department to open or close an investigation, and, of course, the power to pardon any person before, during, or after an investigation and/or conviction. Put simply, the Constitution leaves no question that the President has exclusive authority over the ultimate conduct and disposition of all criminal investigations and over those executive branch officials responsible for conducting those investigations.”
