It would be “abominable” if the Obama White Home lagged the FBI‘s questionable interview of previous national security advisor Michael Flynn, a former assistant director of intelligence for the bureau stated Friday night.
Kevin Brock shared his observations throughout an appearance on Fox News’ “ The Ingraham Angle,” where he reacted to reports that former President Barack Obama had claimed the “guideline of law is at threat” after the Justice Department dropped its case against Flynn over charges of lying to detectives.
” I think they saw this as a chance to disrupt the general. And I believe what we have to discover [is…]– this is seriously crucial– did the FBI conduct this interview at the wish of the White House or was it inspired by their own now well-established individual predispositions and prejudices against the president?” Brock informed guest host Raymond Arroyo.
” That has actually to be figured out. If it’s the previous … Well, if it’s either, it’s abominable.”
” The news over the last 24 hours I think has actually 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 truth that there is no precedent that any person can discover for somebody who has actually been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free,” Obama reportedly stated. “That’s the kind of things where you start to get stressed that basic– not just institutional norms– however our standard understanding of guideline of law is at threat.”
Yahoo! News, in reporting the tape, kept in mind that Obama incorrectly specifies the charges against 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 shift period between the Obama and Trump administrations. But Flynn’s fans have long argued that the FBI set a perjury trap for Flynn.
Brock disagreed with Obama’s supposed remarks.
” My action to that is the abrogation of the rule of law was carrying out an examination that was not lawfully predicated,” Brock said. “So if I enter and I talk you, Raymond, about something … that’s not a federal criminal offense as an FBI representative and I implicate you of doing it and I have proof that you did it, but it’s not a federal criminal offense … and you lie to me. There’s no materiality there since there’s no factor for me to be investigating in the first place.”
New information emerged this week about what Obama himself understood at the time of the Flynn case. Obama alerted the Trump administration versus working with Flynn and stated he was “not a fan” of the former head of the Defense Intelligence Firm.
