During an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo which was aired on Sunday, President Donald Trump went off on the Obama Administration for requesting to unmask former national security advisor Mike Flynn.
The President was clearly upset with former President Barack Obama as well as former Vice President Joe Biden, suggesting that they should face jail time.
“This is the greatest political scam, hoax in the history of our country! And people should be going to jail for this stuff… This was all Obama. This was all Biden. These people are corrupt,” the President said. “The whole thing was corrupt. And we caught them. We caught them. And what you saw just now. I watched Biden yesterday he could barely speak. He was on Good Morning America. And he said he didn’t know anything about it. And now it just gets released after he said that. It gets released that he was one of the unmaskers meaning he knew everything about it. So he lied to your friend George Stephanopoulos.”
The President made similar comments last week. On Thursday morning, President Trump spoke out after DNI Richard Grenell revealed that former Vice President Joe Biden, former FBI director James Comey, former CIA chief John Brennan and more all personally requested to unmask Flynn.
The President called on Republican senators, specifically Senator Lindsey Graham to have former President Barack Obama testify under oath.
“If I were a Senator or Congressman, the first person I would call to testify about the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the USA, by FAR, is former President Obama. He knew EVERYTHING. Do it @LindseyGrahamSC, just do it. No more Mr. Nice Guy. No more talk!” he tweeted.
On Wednesday afternoon, Grenell officially released the names of Obama administration officials who requested the unmasking of former national security advisor Michael Flynn.
The names include former Vice President Joe Biden, former FBI director James Comey, former CIA chief John Brennan and more.
