Court documents related to the DOJ dismissing the case against Michael Flynn showed that former President Barack Obama knew about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s conversation with then-Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak.
A memo included in the documents detailed a meeting in which the phone call was discussed by Obama, then-FBI Director Michael Comey and then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates. Another memo showed that then-vice president Joe Biden was also present for the conversation.
Obama said that he didn’t want any more information about the conversation between Kislyak and Flynn, but asked “whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information.”
Yates, who authored the first memo, said she didn’t remember Comey’s response to Obama’s question. She did say that Comey mentioned the Logan Act but not a specific investigation into Flynn.
These documents show that Obama was up to his neck in the phony investigation and was at least complicit in the FBI’s actions because he thought it would help Democrats take down duly elected President Donald Trump.
