Friday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) weighed in on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit rehearing former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s case.
Jordan stated the effort to trick Flynn into lying to them in an interview and set him up “goes all the method to the top” with previous President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden. He called the actions by the Obama administration to weaken the incoming Trump administration “as incorrect as wrong might be.”
” This was a coordinated effort to go after Flynn due to the fact that they knew Flynn would expose what they did,” Jordan told host Maria Bartiromo. “Which’s what ticks me off more than anything else. They pursued a three-star basic because he was going to inform the world. He would figure it out as the national security advisor for President Trump, and as the former head of defense intelligence, he would figure it out. That’s why it was so darn incorrect.”
” The January 5, 2017, Oval Workplace conference– Obama and Biden are in that meeting, so it needs to go all the way to the top. They are in there talking about it. The extremely next day is when Comey goes up, and speak to the president about the dossier he currently understood was incorrect. So, this is was all collaborated because last couple of days of the Obama-Biden administration,” he included.
