At the start of this week, former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom suggested to Fox News' Maria Bartiromo that former President Barack Obama and former CIA Director John Brennan committed felonies and not Gen. Michael Flynn.
Kallstrom said that "high-ranking people throughout the government ... had a plot to not have Hillary Clinton indicted so that she could remain the flawed candidate that she was," RCP reported.
Kallstrom cited text messages from anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok as evidence that the administration "had a backup plan to frame Donald Trump."
"My sources tell me [Brennan] was leaking almost weekly or daily, and he was taking that bunch of phony crap supposedly from Russia, and peddling that through the Congress and the media, he was one of the active people," said Kallstrom. "I've known him a long time and I think he's involved, and quite frankly, I think it goes right to the top, quite frankly."
Bartiromo responded by asking, "To President Obama?"
"It goes right to the top, and it involves that whole strategy. They were going to win [the 2016 election], nobody would ever know this stuff, and they just unleashed the intelligence community," Kallstrom continued.
"I hope Gen. Flynn sues a lot of people, because he was handled so bad. ... He didn't lie to the FBI. They didn't even interview him about a crime. He was in his legal authorized mode when all that happened," Kallstrom said.
"They are the people who committed felonies, not the general," Kallstrom suggested, apparently referring to Brennan and Obama. "They've ruined [Flynn] — and because they threatened his son, you know, they bankrupted this guy that gave his life to this country."
