Former President Barack Obama is afraid Republicans will investigate their political opponents if they manage to win midterm elections next month. Obama’s comments came at a time when Democrats were prosecuting their political rivals themselves.
Currently, the Democratic-led Congress is investigating Trump for his alleged involvement in January 6 attacks, not to mention the FBI also raided Trump’s Florida residence.
The former president was making a desperate attempt to save the candidacy of vulnerable Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock, who is competing against Republican candidate Herschel Walker in a closely contested race.
Obama Tells His Worst Fears
As Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock is losing voters ahead of the midterm elections, Obama fled to Georgia to campaign for the vulnerable Democratic senator.
During his speech, Obama stated Republicans would waste the next two years investigating their political rivals, adding they would not help Georgians pay their bills.

Obama’s predictions about Republicans’ possible investigations against Democrats are no surprise. The GOP already claimed they will investigate inefficient public officeholders, as well as members of the Biden family who abused the law.
Reportedly, Republicans will prosecute Biden for his inability to tackle the border crisis, as well as his alleged involvement in his son Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings.
Likewise, the GOP is expected to investigate first son Hunter Biden for his deep business ties with anti-American governments and armies.
In addition to that, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas can land in hot waters, due to his poor tackling of border crises that have plagued neighboring border areas.
Furthermore, Obama claimed Georgians would lose social security measures under a Republican-led Congress.

Obama Makes Desperate Attempt to Save Warnock
Obama also noted the only way to heal the US economy is to elect politicians who really care about the economy. Since Biden is filling Americans’ pockets with more cash, people should vote for Democratic candidates, Obama added.
However, the former president failed to mention a social spending spree of Democrats is one of the primary reasons for the surging inflation that strained the pockets of every American.
Meanwhile, Obama also took aim at Warnock’s opponent, Herschel Walker, claiming he is a celebrity who wants to become a politician for the sake of it.
As Walker has no experience in public service, Obama continued, he cannot serve the best interests of voters after becoming a senator. Georgia is one of the most competitive races in Senate midterm elections.
Obama’s visit to Georgia came amid rising concerns of Democrats that Warnock is likely to lose his Senate seat on November 8.
A couple of days ago, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer was caught on a hot mic telling Biden that Democrats could lose their Georgia Senate seat.
