On January 5, 2017, the day after Strzok moved to keep the Flynn case open, President Obama met with Director Comey, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, Vice President Biden, and National Security Advisor Susan Rice. In that meeting they briefed Obama on the Russia investigation. It’s unclear to what extent they discussed the details of the investigation amongst each other. Given all that we know now regarding the fake foundation to the inquiry, it’s time we asked: what did Obama and Biden know and when did they know it?
Instead of grappling with the implications of newly released details about what Obama officials were doing to undermine the incoming Trump administration during the transition, the mainstream media have fixated on Trump’s use of the term “Obamagate,” dismissing it as a conspiracy theory.

WOW. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Sen Rand: “I fear some people who don’t want to investigate Obama are the same people, LINDSEY GRAHAM, ( yes he said it), who don’t want FISA reform because they love the power of the intelligence community to snoop on anyone, incl. Americans”. pic.twitter.com/zcuntmYcbK
Fox News chief White House correspondent Ed Henry said Tuesday evening that "it could get sticky" for Brennan... "There's other intel that may have been more serious suggesting that Russia wanted Hillary Clinton to win, rather than balancing that out in the assessment they put out there in that assessment, and set the narrative that Russia wanted Trump to win," Henry reported on Tucker Carlson Tonight.
