If there can only be one President at a time, why doesn't the FBI charge Obama with meeting India's Prime Minister today?

If candidate Trump can't meet Russians during the transition period, why can Obama undermine Trump post election?

    He was invited as a private citizen. They are paying him.

    On another note, do you remember this trip the republicans made while obama was president?

    Flynn talked to the Russian ambassador as the incoming national security adviser!

    Obama talked to the Indian prime Minister as a former president with no power!

      Flynn talked to Russia about changing the sanctions the USA imposed on Russia as well as UN sanctions in regard to Israel. Implying that they would do Putin’s bidding on those things if they got the dirt on Hilary. That was during the campaign and a violation of the Logan Act.

    Your ignorance of post presidential protocol is showing. Many past chief executives have travelled, and met with heads of state while doing so. There is nothing wrong with that, provided the discussion avoids security related issues. As for the current persident, didn't he blurt out code sensitive information to the Russian ambassador six months ago? Yes, he did. Obama wasn't perfect, but at least he didn't need supervision.

    Obama isn't acting on behalf of the Unites States. But as a popular former POTUS who still has political influence in the U.S., he is treated much like a President overseas despite no longer being in office. There's nothing to investigate.

    Obama is a mulatto. He can do whatever he wants.

    i had NO idea that the "transition" was already underway in June 2016, five months BEFORE the election.

    truly, conservatives live in a time-warped "alternative" reality.

    (psychopharmacology has come a long way in the last half century. i'd prescribe an IV drip solution of a Thorazine/Haldol cocktail for you, that you might join the rest of us moderates/liberals in the wonderful world of OBJECTIVE REALITY.)

    So, former presidents aren't allowed to travel abroad in your vision of America?

    Let's be sure to remember that when Trump is finished, shall we?

      George Bush met with former world leaders, not current ones. What is Obama promising? Favors from his donors to obstruct Trump?
