Is former President Barack Hussein Obama diligently and covertly forming a shadow government to resist President Trump?
(WASHINGTON, DC) During an interview with Fox and Friends Weekend on December 18th 2016, former TRUNEWS guest Ed Klein said Barack Obama was setting up a shadow government to resist President Trump.
Here is a transcript of part of that interview:
Ed Klein: For the past 100 years every president who is outgoing has packed up his stuff gone home and not criticized his successor. This is not what the Obamas are planning to do. They rented an eight-bedroom mansion in the section of Washington near Joe Lockhart, Bill Clinton’s last press secretary. In that house there’s enough room for Valerie Jarrett and Michelle and the kids. A place for ten cars to park. They are setting up what they are calling a shadow government.
Pete Hegseth: The Obamas claim it is because the children want to stay in D.C..
Ed Klein: That’s not the real reason they are staying there. They are staying there because despite what the president said in his press conference, he’s in a sense of outrage over this incoming Trump Administration, which he thinks is going to wipe out his legacy. So he’s setting up this kind of almost insurgency, picking people in foreign affairs, labor, abortion, union matters and setting them up to start appearing on television, making speeches and doing op-ed pieces for next four years, you’re going to see not only a Trump Administration but you’re going to see a shadow government opposing the Trump…
Klein’s suspicion was bolstered by an editorial which ran in the New York Post this weekend from Paul Sperry, the author of “The Great American Bank Robbery”.
In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular “America First” agenda.
He’s doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action. Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA. Rather, it’s gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country.
Since Donald Trump’s election, this little-known but well-funded protesting arm has beefed up staff and ramped up recruitment of young liberal activists, declaring on its website, “We’re not backing down.” Determined to salvage Obama’s legacy,”it’s drawing battle lines on immigration, ObamaCare, race relations and climate change.
Obama is intimately involved in OFA operations and even tweets from the group’s account. In fact, he gave marching orders to OFA foot soldiers following Trump’s upset victory…

TRUNEWS correspondent Edward Szall received an email last week inviting him to sign up for updates from the ‘press office’ of Barack and Michelle Obama.
This email added to previous discoveries on inauguration day, that an archive of Obama’s WhiteHouse.gov activity was being hosted on a stand alone website which maintains a striking resemblance to the current official government page for President Trump.
These actions, which seemingly chose to imitate the parallel official government equivalent in both appearance and branding, leave the average observer wondering if FORMER President Barack Obama has actually left office.
