It was January 5, 2017. President Obama had just two weeks left of his Administration and there was a meeting in the Oval Office.
In addition to Obama, then VP Joe Biden was there. Former FBI Director James Comey was there and so was then-CIA Director John Brennan, and then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
How do we know? Documents were declassified last week as part of the DOJ's motion to dismiss the case against former National Security adviser General Michael Flynn.
It's about to get much worse as Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has decided to declassify information as to which Obama Administrations officials were involved in unmasking Flynn. We know Obama knew the details of the wiretapped Flynn phone calls. Biden too.
According to The Federalist senior editor, Mollie Hemingway, there came a point in the meeting when Obama asked everyone to leave except Comey and then deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.
"And that's where they started hatching their plan to make sure that the incoming administration would not find out what they had been doing or what they planned to continue doing in terms of spying on the Trump campaign and people affiliated with it," she said on Fox News yesterday.
Will anyone pay for what some have described as an act of treachery?
