Former President Barack Obama reacted to the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) decision to drop charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn saying he was “worried” there was a risk to the "rule of law."

Attorney General William Barr said of Flynn's case that “there was not a legitimate counterintelligence investigation going on.”

Flynn's case was dropped on Thursday following unsealed FBI documents showing he was set up by disgraced Buerea officials.

Obama said of the news:

“The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn."

“And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free," Obama added.

"That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk," the former President continued.

"And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places.”

But Obama's comments failed to note that former FBI Director James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe admitted that the agents who interviewed Flynn didn't believe he even lied.

“So I am hoping that all of you feel the same sense of urgency that I do,” Obama continued.

“Whenever I campaign, I’ve always said, ‘Ah, this is the most important election.’ Especially obviously when I was on the ballot, that always feels like it’s the most important election."

"This one — I’m not on the ballot — but I am pretty darn invested. We got to make this happen," Obama added.

Comey attempted to weaken the legitimacy of the DOJ on twitter:

“The DOJ has lost its way. But, career people: please stay because America needs you. The country is hungry for honest, competent leadership.”

Adam Schiff went a step further, saying the DOJ’s decision incriminates Attorney General William Barr.

"Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI about his illicit Russian contacts,” Schiff squealed on Twitter.

"His lies do not now become truths."

As Neon Nettle reported on Friday, Attorney General William Barr said he believed Comey was the driving force behind efforts to trap former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

When asked if Flynn was trapped, Barr said:

“Yes. Essentially. They had started a counterintelligence investigation during the summer, as you know, related to the campaign."

Moreover, a former Obama Administration official testified under oath that she lied about having evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russia.

During an appearance on MSNBC, Evelyn Farkas gave sworn testimony that she lied when she claimed to have evidence of alleged collusion.
