After a series of leaks which showed that Michael Flynn had contact with the Russian Ambassador before Donald Trump was inaugurated, he was forced to leave his position as National Security Advisor.
Few days later, Tony Shaffer, a former CIA analyst and retired U.S. Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel revealed that several of Barack Obama’s administration officials were actually behind the leaks that led to Flynn’s resignation.
According to the WashingtonFreeBeacon‘s post, the Fox Business host Deirdre Bolton asked Shaffer whether he thought leaks from the Obama administration were “the problem.”
Shaffer answered “Absolutely” and added that he Obama administration was “directly involved” with the leak.
Shaffer added that the blame lay “squarely at the feet of” the former CIA director John Brennan, former director of National Intelligence Jim Clapper, and former deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes.
Day after Michael Flynn resigned, WashingtonFreeBeacon reported that Rhodes and oders made a “behind-the-scenes effort” to “plant a series of damaging stories about Flynn in the national media.”
Also Shaffer pointed that NBC had said it had received its information from six officials who saw the transcript of Flynn’s call with a Russian official.
“Someone is basically giving away information,” Shaffer said.
“That’s why you need to look at a house-cleaning. Some of those professionals were selected [during the Obama years] because of their political reliability, not because of their professional ethics.”-Shaffer said.
President Trump needs to get rid of Obama’s leftovers in the White House.
The former CIA analyst and retired U.S. Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Tony Shaffer just dropped a bombshell. He explained very well the Flynn situation and who was behind the phone call leaks.
Many Americans would not find this surprising, because they know that Obama is capable for doing things such this.
