Arrests over the college bribery scandal have swept up over 50 of America’s most powerful and rich CEOs, college coaches, celebrities and actors, and more — and now it appears the scandal reached all the way to former President Barack Obama’s family.
According to reports, Obama paid one of the accused tennis coaches to give private lessons to his family while he was in the White House.
Michelle Obama spent hours with the corrupt official, who is now facing up to 20 years in jail.
In the indictment, unsealed Tuesday by federal prosecutors in Massachusetts, Gordon Ernst — Obama’s former private tennis instructor and current women’s tennis coach at the University of Rhode Island — is accused of conspiracy to commit racketeering. Officials say he committed the crimes between 2012 and 2018 while serving as a coach at Georgetown University.
For years, the mainstream media called the Obama administration “scandal-free” — but their tennis coach facing 20 years in prison isn’t even the biggest scandal to hit the Obamas just this week.
Disgraced former FBI lawyer Lisa Page said that Obama’s Justice Department ordered the FBI to not bring up charges against Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Critics say that the statement, made last year but only unsealed on Tuesday, indicates Obama committed obstruction of justice in an effort to influence the 2016 presidential election in favor of the Democrats.

In recent months, Obama has been called a “murderer” by his political allies.
He’s been accused of allowing thousands of child brides into America during his administration.
And he’s currently being sued by residents of Chicago for trying to steal $500 million in public land for his presidential library.
That’s just so far in 2019.
The wise Greek philosopher Aseop once said, “A man is known by the company he keeps.”
In Obama’s case, police say that even his tennis coach was a crook.
What more does America need to know about the former president?
Who was the better president?
