Recently, there has been quite an uproar over the possibility of Barack Obama staying in Washington to maintain an involvement with politics. It is very unusual for a former president to publicly oppose a sitting president. But after recent comments condemning Trump’s temporary, immigration ban, it appears Obama is willing to break tradition.
Reports have been claiming Obama is setting up a shadow government just two miles from the White House. While seemingly farfetched, it is being supported by many highly reputable political commentators and insiders. Commentator Rush Limbaugh, who normally dismisses conspiracy theories, believes this to be true. Is Obama really setting up a shadow government?
Not long ago, former Attorney General Eric Holder availed a statement that Obama would be working again in politics and that he was “ready to roll.” It has also been reported Obama is going to be leading non-profit Organizing For Action, which has over 250 chapters across the nation.
Who is Valerie Jarret, and why does she matter?
Valerie Jarret was a special adviser to Barack Obama during his presidency. It is said Obama trusts her judgement, which is further evidence Obama is close to returning to politics.
“There was never any doubt that Valerie would have a suite of rooms in the house that the Obamas are renting,” the family friend reportedly said. “Obama trusts her judgment more than any other person on the planet, as does Michelle. Obama doesn’t make a decision without her.”
