Newly-released documents from January 2017 show outgoing President Barack Obama was intimately familiar with phone calls between Gen. Michael Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

The government reportedly intercepted the calls Flynn made as a part of its routine surveillance on Russian officials and agents in the United States.

Obama brought up the intercepted call in a classified White House meeting on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.  

The president’s detailed level of knowledge caught then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates by surprise. By that time, top FBI officials had reviewed those communications and hadn’t found evidence of criminality or improper behavior. (RELATED: Pelosi Caught Trying to Scam Trump)

Yet it appeared Obama, who fired Flynn three years before, had an ax to grind. 

Townhall’s Katie Pavlich has more:

“Yates first learned of the December 2016 calls between [LTG Michael] Flynn and [Russian Ambassador to the United States, Sergey] Kislyak on January 5, 2017, while in the Oval Office. Yates, along with then FBI-Director James Comey, then-CIA Director John Brennan, and then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, were at the White House to brief members of the Obama Administration on the classified Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian Activities in Recent U.S Elections. President Obama was joined by his National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, and others from the National Security Council,” the document states.

“After the briefing, Obama dismissed the group but asked Yates and Comey to stay behind. Obama started by saying he had ‘learned of the information about Flynn’ and his conversation with Kislyak about sanctions. Obama specified 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. At that point, Yates had no idea what the President was talking about, but figured it out based on the conversation. Yates recalled Comey mentioning the Logan Act, but can’t recall if he specified there was an ‘investigation,'” it continues.

That phone call became part of the FBI’s justification to interview Flynn on January 24, 2017. Ahead of that meeting, notes show agents planned to get Flynn to lie in order to pursue criminal prosecution or get him fired.

According to a memo Rice wrote to herself on January 20, 2017, her last day on the job, she and Vice President Joe Biden were in the room when Obama delivered the news to Yates.

The Justice Department declassified these documents yesterday after dropping its case against Flynn. 

The next question for us inevitably becomes whether or not officials will be held responsible for their prosecution of Flynn, a reality Attorney General William Barr is well aware of.

Maybe the rest of you thought he was not that bad. I truly believe we have not touched the TIP OF THE ICEBERG when it comes to the wickedness, evil and corruption of this man. Too many things have been ignored about him.
Birth certificate.
Education financed as a foreign student.
Muslim faith which is CERTAIN
Ignored the constitution many times and not even the Republicans did a thing about him. REAL IMPEACHABLE offenses and then the Democrats make up stuff and pretend to have a somber march to the impeachment trials when there was NOTHING. And even a fifth grader could see that.
How many times did Schitt say that he had PROOF and the news media NEVER called him on it and demanded he produce it. He could not even produce the “whistleblower”.

Obama is a slug and always has been. He is a serial liar. I read his books before his election. When I saw him speaking on the tv I told my wife the SOB was lying and is a liar. He does not like our Constitution yet he is a Constitutional scholar? What a crock. He is a cheap con artist and yet people voted for him because he was black, 1/2, and I guess they felt he was owed. So they elected him. And America is still paying the price for this total anti American idiot. President Trump is doing his best to unravel all his many mistakes. It will take the current President a 2nd term and I will vote for him and fight for him to undo all the wrong the liberal Democrats have done to our nation.

Obama says he was made aware of Flynn’s calls – that could only have come from his Chief Adviser Valerie Jarrett and that reeks of Jarrett being the head honcho of the White House who made the Decisions, Not Obama.

Valerie Jarrett is an Iranian lover. It is Obama that makes the decisions and not Valerie however she does have influence. I wonder if the Justice Department will have the guts to question the first African American President . His administration had to be the most corrupt administration in the history of this country.

Obama is so self centered and such a control freak that he would never give anyone, including his staff, unilateral control of operations. He probably only trusted himself to polish his personal mirror.

Can anyone imagine what ruin MooseHell could wreak upon our nation if she were elected… not too mention they would draw a double salary.

Democrats know everything. It’s just the republicans who need to step up and fight for the American people and for the US constitution. If Democrats flip the seats in this coming election, we will have no more country. We will be like Venezuela. Will be a socialist/communist country. No more freedom of the press, religion and each citizen will have no more rights to depend ourselves. Second amendments will go away. We will be under government control. Wake up everyone ! This is got our future generations !!

If I remember her parents are both high up in the muslim brotherhood and sisterhood! And she has been their house mate for how many years? He is lower than Carter! And as I read many years ago he and the pope were nothing but plants. Both to do damage to OUR WORLD! Just look at what they did and the pope does not do things a real pope would do!
John Paul was my pope!
