The Senate was set to grill former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates today.
Trump turned up the heat by reminding America what Yates was responsible for:
Sally Yates has zero credibility. She was a part of the greatest political crime of the Century, and ObamaBiden knew EVERYTHING! Sally Yates leaked the General Flynn conversation? Ask her under oath. Republicans should start playing the Democrats game!
Some were expecting the former government official to throw Trump under the bus.
Instead, she revealed something few people knew. James Comey should be worried:
Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that when the FBI interviewed then-incoming national security adviser Michael Flynn in January 2017, it was done without her authorization, and that she was upset when she found out about it…
“Did Comey go rogue?” Graham asked.
“You could use that term, yes,” Yates agreed.
Yates lost her job after she openly defied the administration. Some might have expected her to be a part of the “deep state,” those government officials who sought to undermine Trump.
But her testimony shocked many when she claimed she was “upset” over former FBI Director James Comey’s investigation against Michael Flynn.
She even said that she didn’t authorize the case. When Graham asked if Comey went “rogue,” Yates agreed with the term.
This casts considerable new light on the Flynn case. Many Americans believed Flynn was wrongly targeted by former Obama officials over his loyalty to Trump.
Democrats used the case against Flynn as “evidence” that Trump was in fact colluding with Russia.
Flynn confessed to lying to the FBI during the said investigation but later withdrew that plea, saying he was coerced by the agency.
The DOJ recently tried to drop the charges against Flynn, but apparently Obama-appointed judges continue to drag it out.
Many Americans have demanded answers to the cases Obama’s administration launched against Flynn and Trump during the transition.
Now, we are learning that Yates was not on board with Comey’s campaign against Flynn. At least, that’s what she’s claiming now.
Do these former deep states operatives smell blood in the water? Do they know something we don’t know—that the DOJ might be tightening the net around them?
Not sure, but for Yates to expose Comey like that is unprecedented.
Do you want James Comey held accountable?
- Sally Yates testified before the Senate about the Flynn investigation.
- The former Deputy Attorney General revealed she was against Comey’s case.
- She even said the former FBI Director “went rogue.”
