On Thursday, political pollster and one-time aide to former President Bill Clinton, Dick Morris, revealed Barack Obama, along with a group of aides, have set up a ‘secret war room’ tasked with stopping President Trump and his agenda.
Operating just two miles away from the White House, the war room holds two conference calls daily to hash out media talking points, with a particular focus on health care.
Calls are held 8:30 am est and 9:45 am est. Kathleen Sebelius, former Health and Human Services head and Andrew Slavitt, former head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services are both active in the secret group.
While Dick Morris’ inside intel is deeply concerning, it isn’t the first time news of Obama plotting against President Trump has come to light. In May, news broke former Obama aide, Valerie Jarrett, moved in with the former first family to plot against the current administration.
Daily Mail reported:
"Barack Obama is turning his new home in the posh Kalorama section of the nation’s capital – just two miles away from the White House – into the nerve center of the mounting insurgency against his successor, President Donald J. Trump.
Obama’s goal, according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment.
And Obama is being aided in his political crusade by his longtime consigliere, Valerie Jarrett, who has moved into the 8,200-square-foot, $5.3-million Kaloroma mansion with the former president and Michelle Obama, long time best friends.
Jarrett played a vital – if at times low-key – role in the Obama presidency. She lived in the White House, dined with the Obamas, and help shape his domestic and foreign policies.
The former president has set up an office on the West End of the national’s capitol, where he recently hosted an open house for his White House staff – including Joe Biden, Susan Rice, Josh Earnest and Jarrett.
But the office, part of his post presidency perks, cannot be used for political purposes. The rent on his home is paid by him personally.
