Conservative author and radio host Mark Levin blasted the mainstream media for their role in covering up for former President Barack Obama in regard to the highly politicized FISA warrant detailed in the recently released memo.
"Barack Obama had to know, at least generally, what was taking place for multiple reasons, and he's the one the Democrats are protecting the most," Levin said on his Monday radio show. "He’s the one the media are protecting the most."
Levin explained how he believes that Obama is being disingenuous when the former president claims he knew nothing about the FISA warrant against then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign.
"Number one, the Attorney General of the United States Loretta Lynch, she knew about it. She wasn’t bashful about revealing information. She met with Bill Clinton on the tarmac in Phoenix to let him know that his wife was in the clear," said Levin. "The idea that an Attorney General of the United States as political as she was, wouldn’t inform the President of the United States what’s taking place with these FISA applications and then the FISA warrant, to me, is preposterous."
He continued, "Number two, the deputy attorney general, at the time, Sally Yates — extremely political, as she demonstrated when she refused to defend President Trump’s refugee executive orders, which were constitutional. She refused to do it. She knew about the relevant FISA application."
"Number three, FBI Director Comey, at the time, he knew about the FISA application," said the radio host. "Number four, the Deputy FBI Director, McCabe, he knew about the FISA application."
According to Levin, these factors make it highly suspicious that Obama knew nothing about what was going on in the Justice Department.
"There’s no way," he said. "And yet he's never asked about it. And he's the one the Democrat Party's protecting. And he's the one the Praetorian media are protecting."
