Dem. Rep: Obama Administration was “Scandal Free”

In an appearance on MSNBC Friday, Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) called the Obama administration “scandal free,” while also calling for an investigation into “every iota” of the Trump administration.

Jackson Lee criticized Republicans for investigating the Obama administration, while supposedly not applying the same standard to the Trump administration: “Remember eight years under President Obama? What a vigorous investigatory spirit the Republicans had.”

Then, Jackson Lee falsely called President Obama’s tenure “scandal free.”

Jackson Lee seemed to have forgotten the IRS targeting scandal, Operation Fast and Furious, and the NSA surveillance revelations, among others.

Former Obama White House official Valerie Jarrett made a similar claim that was received with widespread mockery from conservatives during the Trump transition period.
