✍️ Petition: Should Obama’s involvement be investigated? 👇
Amid the bombshell of newly revealed documents that show top officials orchestrating a plot to frame Former National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn, Flynn’s attorney insisted that even former President Barack Obama himself, was in on the scandal, according to Fox News.
Flynn originally pleaded guilty to providing a false statement to the FBI about his contact with the Russian ambassador.
Since, he has changed his pleas and has questioned the FBI.
“These agents specifically schemed and planned with each other how to not tip him off, that he was even the person being investigated,” Powell told Fox News.
“So they kept him relaxed and unguarded deliberately as part of their effort to set him up and frame him,” Powell said.
The freshly released testimonies show Obama held a private meeting in thr Oval Office weeks before the interview that he knew about Flynn’s phone call with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
After the meeting, Obama asked Yates and then-FBI Director James Comey to “stay behind.”
Obama then “specified that he did not want any additional information on the matter, but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information.”
“The whole thing was orchestrated and set up within the FBI, [former Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper, [Former CIA Director John] Brennan, and in the Oval Office meeting that day with President Obama,” Powell said.

When asked if she believes that Flynn was the victim of a plot that went all the way up to Obama, Powell said, “Absolutely.”
As far as whether anyone will face charges over this, and, if so, who, Powell simply said it will be up to Attorney General Bill Barr and Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, who has been investigating the origins of the Russia probe.
Powell said she believes the judge will sign off on Flynn’s charges being dismissed as soon as Monday.
