"News of Flynn's "get out of prosecution free" card drew a scathing comment from the 44th president about the dangerous precedent that Barr has set," Joy Reid said yesterday. >>

PRESIDENT OBAMA: 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. 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.

"That leaked audio is from a conference call President Obama held on Friday with former members of his administration. I cannot emphasize to you enough how unusual it is for President Obama to speak out about the current administration. so to hear him say that, that is a really big deal," Reid said.
