Sally Yates was caught in a massive web of lies and deceit that is karmically coming back to haunt both her and Barack Obama. The “Kenyan” knew all about his administration’s conspiracy to “target” Michael Flynn. FBI Director James Comey was in on the plot too, along with top intelligence spooks John Brennan and James Clapper.
Yates covered Obama’s involvement with lies
It’s clear from the transcripts that the public was finally able to pry away from shifty Adam Schiff that Yates used lies and deception to cloud the issues when grilled by lawmakers over Barack Obama’s involvement in what we now know as Russiagate. The transcripts show that on January 5, 2017, Yates, James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, and National Intelligence Director James Clapper met with Obama at the White House.
They were there to discuss so called Russian attempts to influence the recent election. Susan Rice and other members of the National Security council were on hand. After the meeting, Obama asked Yates and Comey to stick around. That’s when he told the inner circle of the conspiracy about the call between Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak.
Obama made it crystal clear he didn’t want to know another word about it, other than one thing, “whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information.” Yates had no idea what he meant by that, but claims she “figured it out based on the conversation.” Comey on the other hand, did know what Obama was talking about.
What did Obama know and when did he know it?
On August 15, 2017, Yates sat down with some friendly progressive investigators. They were gathering kindling to burn President Trump at the stake with for the Mueller inquisition so she didn’t bother telling lies. She helpfully told them that Obama informed her about the phone call between Flynn and Ambassador Kislyak during an Oval Office meeting in early January.
The former Deputy Attorney General was stunned when Barack Obama told her that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had talked to Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak on the phone. It proved his involvement in the Deep State plot to overthrow Donald Trump, so it was the last thing she wanted to hear. That’s what she told Robert Mueller’s team.
According to the transcripts that Adam Schiff has been hiding for two years, three months later, in November of 2017, she lied to congress to cover it up. Not only that, they show that Comey ratted her out.
Comey had already told them about the meeting
She wasn’t nearly as comfortable talking to Congress, repeatedly looking to her lawyers to get her out of tricky questions. She sidestepped and tap danced rather well, but it didn’t do much good. Unbeknownst to her, Comey had already thrown her under the bus and testified she was at the Obama meeting when he told them about the phone call. She kept telling lies anyway.
On November 3, 2017, Washington Democrat Denny Heck asked in the congressional hearing how she “first learned” about Flynn’s conversation with the ambassador. Thats when her deception really started flowing. She swore under oath that she didn’t know a thing about it until she heard about it from the Federal Bureau of Instigation and the National Security Division of the Justice Department.
Anything remotely touching on Obama quickly became an unanswerable “executive privilege” matter but she doubled down on the lies she already had on the table. She got a “detailed briefing” from Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the NSD Mary McCord. After that, she went to talk to Comey about it.
It turns out that there’s a surprising reason for all those lies. Sally Yates may have been blackmailing General Flynn herself. She’s the one who warned Trump’s administration that Flynn was “compromised” by a lie that made him a “blackmail target.” She knew because he was the target of her blackmail. She already knew that there was no evidence that Flynn “colluded” with Russia but insisted that he posed a threat. That means she was trying to use Flynn to blackmail Trump too. As the New York Post writes, “The implication was that unless Trump fired Flynn, he’d pay a price. So it was Yates, in a sense, who was blackmailing Trump.”
