It would be “abominable” if the Obama White House was behind the FBI‘s controversial interview of previous nationwide security consultant Michael Flynn, a previous assistant director of intelligence for the bureau stated Friday night.
Kevin Brock shared his observations throughout a look on Fox News’ “ The Ingraham Angle,” where he reacted to reports that former President Barack Obama had declared the “rule of law is at risk” after the Justice Department dropped its case versus Flynn over charges of lying to private investigators.
” I believe they saw this as a chance to interrupt the general. And I think what we have to discover out [is…]– this is critically essential– did the FBI perform this interview at the request of the White Home or was it inspired by their own now reputable individual biases and prejudices versus the president?” Brock informed visitor host Raymond Arroyo.
” That has to be identified. If it’s the previous … Well, if it’s either, it’s abominable.”
” The news over the last 24 hours I believe has been somewhat minimized– about the Justice Department dropping charges versus Michael Flynn,” Obama said, according to Yahoo! News, in a web talk with members of the Obama Alumni Association.
” And the fact that there is no precedent that anyone can discover for somebody who has actually been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free,” Obama supposedly stated. “That’s the sort of things where you start to get stressed that standard– not just institutional norms– but our fundamental understanding of guideline of law is at danger.”
Yahoo! News, in reporting the tape, kept in mind that Obama improperly specifies the charges versus Flynn, who was not charged with perjury. Instead, Flynn pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to the FBI about his conversations with the Russian ambassador in the transition duration between the Obama and Trump administrations. However Flynn’s advocates have long argued that the FBI set a perjury trap for Flynn.
Brock disagreed with Obama’s supposed remarks.
” My response to that is the abrogation of the guideline of law was carrying out an investigation that was not legally predicated,” Brock said. “So if I go in and I talk you, Raymond, about something … that’s not a federal crime as an FBI representative and I accuse you of doing it and I have evidence that you did it, but it’s not a federal crime … and you lie to me. There’s no materiality there due to the fact that there’s no reason for me to be investigating in the very first location.”
New details emerged this week about what Obama himself knew at the time of the Flynn case. Obama alerted the Trump administration versus working with Flynn and said he was “not a fan” of the former head of the Defense Intelligence Firm.
