(ConservativePeak.Com)- Things couldn’t get much worse for former President Barack Obama at the moment. After court documents revealed that he knew the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was happening, acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has declassified a list of Obama officials who were involved in the setup.
Grenell declassified the list of officials who were involved with the “unmasking” of General Michael Flynn’s communications with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian Ambassador to the United States. Flynn held the conversations during the transition period between the Obama administration and the Trump administration, and it became the focus of an investigation that destroyed Flynn’s life.
The Department of Justice dropped the case against Flynn after new evidence proved FBI officials purposely entrapped Flynn, and prosecutors encouraged him to admit to something he didn’t do. The declassification of officials involved in the case will now likely become the center of a new major political scandal.
Last week, Grenell brought the list of names to the Department of Justice, according to an unnamed source who spoke to ABC News. However, no further information about Grenell’s meeting with the Justice Department is known.
The court documents that resulted in the case against Flynn being dropped included handwritten notes from FBI officials, which show they had a “goal” to get Flynn to lie, so they could “prosecute him or get him fired.” If President Obama is worried about the officials involved in the setup being revealed, then he’s right to be.
Attorney General William Barr defended the decision to drop the case, telling CBS News that the decision by prosecutor Brandon Van Grack to withdraw the case was him “doing the law’s bidding.”
“A crime cannot be established here,” Barr said. “They [the FBI] did not have a basis for a counterintelligence investigation against Flynn at that stage.”
He also said that people “sometimes plead to things that turn out not to be crimes.”
After years of the Democrats accusing President Donald Trump of colluding with Russia, this new evidence shows just how low the FBI was willing to go to prove it…when it wasn’t true. The fact that the FBI was willing to take such measures to prove the theory, however, implies they were working from orders from above.
President Trump knows it, too. That’s why he’s pushing the “Obamagate” term and looks to be preparing to investigate their behavior.
He got caught, OBAMAGATE! https://t.co/oV6fum0zIS

If anyone was going to help prove the Democrats tried to set up the president and his allies, it was going to be Richard Grenell. Just watch…if President Trump wins in November, you’ll be hearing more from him.
