Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that the FBI acted without her authorization when interviewing incoming national security advisor Michael Flynn in January 2017.
When asked during the Senate hearing whether then-FBI Director James Comey “went rogue,” Yates replied, “You could use that term, yes.”
Yates is testify as part of the committee’s “Oversight of the Crossfire Hurricane Investigation,” which is focused on the FBI probe, under the Obama administration, into whether the 2016 Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the outcome of the race.
Explosive documents were released yesterday detailing a June 2016 defensive briefing given to then-Republican candidate Donald Trump, former national security advisor Michael Flynn and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie — Sara Carter appeared on Hannity last night to discuss the news and how it reveals the extent to which the Trump campaign was spied on.
“These documents are explosive,” Carter reported. “It was 2016 and here’s Joe Pientka debriefing basically Trump, Governor Christie, and Michael Flynn. And then in January, he goes back to the White House with Peter Strzok— he’s the one that’s interviewing Michael Flynn.”
Carter explained how higher-ups, including President Obama himself, were giving directives on the spying directed at the Trump campaign.
Carter said Strzok, Pientka, and others were “directed by people above them. That is Andrew McCabe, that’s James Comey, and that’s those folks that were at the White House. Including the President, who knew everything that was going on.”
Hannity noted Obama needs to answer to these questions.
