The Obama adviser’s father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was also a communist according to FBI documents obtained by Judicial Watch. The agency considered him a potential Communist saboteur, who was to be arrested in the event of a war with the Soviet Union.
According to Judicial Watch, Jarrett herself is a “liberal extremist” who, like the president, had strong ties to Frank Marshall Davis — a member of the Communist Party with an extensive FBI file.
Obama wrote about his mentor “Frank” (Marshall Davis) in his best-selling memoir Dreams From My Father(2005). He mentioned him 22 times in the book by his first name, with various other references as well. The president wrote about a conversation he had with Davis in the late 70’s as the young man prepared to leave Hawaii to go to college on the Mainland.
