FORMER PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA “GENUINELY CONCERNED” ABOUT RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN WASHINGTON D.C.

Former White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said his old boss, former President Barack Obama, is worried about a lack of progress in Washington D.C.

“[He’s] viewing it from a distance, where he’s writing a book, but I think that he’s genuinely concerned,” Earnest said on MSNBC on Friday.

Earnest said Obama sees the White House and the federal government as “as an institution that could be used to advance the interest of the American public,” and a lack of forward movement is a concern, “not just for the former president of the United States but Americans of both parties across the country.”

With regards to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes — who has been accused of colluding with the White House on matters related to the committee’s investigation of the Trump campaign and Russia — Earnest said the current administration should be disturbed by how that meeting has been perceived.
