Members of the Obama administration have some serious questions to answer. As the “Obamagate” story breaks, a growing number of major players are being implicated in the scandal. So far, they have not been truthful about their involvement, but they’ve gotten off scot-free. However, thanks to Attorney General William Barr and Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, that is beginning to change.
We now know that former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was “unmasked” by 23 members of the Obama administration and that his identity was leaked to The Washington Post, possibly by Joe Biden himself. President Obama knew that Flynn was of interest to the FBI, and may have been personally involved in the framing operation. More will be revealed on that front as more documents come to light.
We also know definitively now that the Obama administration set the Russian hoax investigation in motion. That absolute farce consumed the country for two years, culminating with the Robert Mueller-led Special Counsel investigation, which found ZERO evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
This information went public thanks to Rick Grenell forcing the hand of Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, who released the transcripts of testimony from James Clapper, Samantha Powers, John Brennan, and Susan Rice.
Not one of them claimed to have any information that Trump colluded with Russia. In fact, their statements, made under oath, indicate that they knew from the start that no such evidence existed but persisted nonetheless. They subjected the American people to two years of the Russian investigation, which was built upon a foundation of lies.
The following is a brief summation of the involvement of the key players in the upper echelon of the Obama administration:
The former Director of National Intelligence is a known liar. He lied to Congress about the illegal surveilling of Americans and he continued to pile on more lies as it related to the Russia investigation. He unmasked General Flynn three times, but then went on CNN yesterday and claimed to not remember why he requested Flynn’s identity be unmasked. If you believe that, then I have a timeshare property to sell you in Belize.
Clapper told CNN that he “didn’t remember” what his specific concern was, regarding those three particular requests to unmask:
“No. I don’t. I don’t recall what prompted a request that was made on my behalf for unmasking. I don’t remember the specifics or what it was in the SIGINT [signals intelligence] report that was suggestive enough that I was concerned and felt that I should know who was actually involved.”
Clapper then proceeded to admit on national tv that he had NO intelligence to justify the eventual Mueller probe. Clapper told Berman that he did not see any direct evidence of “collusion” between the Trump campaign and the Russians. But then he hedged: “Of course, collusion is not a formally defined term, certainly in a legal sense. But if you read the intelligence community assessment, particularly the highly classified version and as well as the unclassified version, you won’t find the ‘C’ word anywhere in that report.”
He testified to this under oath to Adam Schiff’s committee as well.
Then-Vice President Biden requested that Flynn’s identity be unmasked in January of 2017, but denied knowledge of the Flynn affair on ABC’s Good Morning America the day before the documents were made public.
He said that he knew “nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn,” and called the topic a “diversion” from the coronavirus pandemic.
Biden was pressed on the issue, and then clarified: “I thought you asked me whether or not I had anything to do with him being prosecuted. I’m sorry. … I was aware that … they asked for an investigation, but that’s all I know about it, and I don’t think anything else.”
Joe Biden has some explaining to do and this will become an election issue against Donald Trump.
The winner for most unmasking requests against Michael Flynn goes to Samantha Powers. The then-United Nations ambassador requested that Flynn’s identity be unmasked a total of seven times. She later claimed in front of Schiff’s committee that she had no idea that she had requested any of those unmaskings. Well if she didn’t, then who did?
Obama Administration National Security Advisor Susan Rice wrote an odd email to herself the day of Trump’s inauguration, in which she stated that Obama had played by the book with regards to investigating Flynn. That’s an odd thing to email oneself. Was she anticipating that the details of the Russia hoax would eventually become public and she wanted to protect herself and her boss? I would say that’s a safe bet.
Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan is upset that he was caught unmasking Flynn. He isn’t upset about what happened to Michael Flynn, but rather he is more concerned with saving his own skin.
Fox News reported, “He called the recent actions by the Department of Justice to drop the case against Flynn combined with the release of names ‘blatant political corruption at the highest levels of U.S. government.’
‘When you have the administration– the White House, the attorney general, the acting head of the intelligence community all acting in concert to try to advance the personal interests of Mr. Trump… I think this is very, very serious,’ Brennan told MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace.
‘I’m just hoping that individuals like Chris Wray who is a remarkable public servant, will continue to stay strong in the face of this type of abominable abuse of authority,’ he said.
Brennan, however, was not pressed by MSNBC’s Wallace and Brian Williams on why he sought the name of Flynn in the intercepted phone conversations of Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Rather, he lashed out over the disclosure of the names of the Obama administration officials who purportedly requested to “unmask” Flynn’s identity.”
Brennan also testified under oath to the House Intelligence Committee that he had no direct intelligence that pointed to Trump-Russia collusion.
Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey is up to his eyeballs in the Russia Hoax. He directed his henchmen to interview Flynn at the White House on January 24, 2017, and they entrapped him into making a false confession. We also know that Comey was a serial leaker and that he purposely leaked to the press knowing that a special counsel investigation into Trump-Russia would be initiated.
The 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, asked FBI Director James Comey about the Flynn investigation. He knew what was happening to Flynn and we know this thanks to his testimony to the Intelligence Committee by former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates. We also know that the Obama White House requested to be updated on the FISA surveillance of Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
But what else did Obama know? How far did the corruption go?
We’ll know more as additional information is revealed.
