Finally, someone asking the right questions.
Trey Gowdy points to Obama as the possible source for the Michael Flynn leaks.
From Daily Caller:
Rep. Trey Gowdy, questioning James Comey during a House Intelligence Committee hearing on Monday, appeared to name former President Barack Obama and six of his administration’s top staffers as the source of leaks regarding former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s alleged collusion with the Russian government during the 2016 election.
Gowdy asked if those 6 people – DNI James Clapper, CIA Director James Brennan, former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, former White House advisor Ben Rhodes, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates – “knew the name of the U.S. citizen that appeared in The New York Times and Washington Post? Would he [she] have access to an unmasked name?”
His point was that only a limited number of people would have the information that was leaked to the media.
So the question is which of those limited number of people did it?
Gowdy also asked Comey if he had briefed President Obama on any calls involving Michael Flynn.
Comey refused to answer the question, saying, “I’m not going to go get into either that case or any conversations I had with the president,” Comey answered.
Why not? The President is not supposed to be inserting himself in any criminal investigation, that would be considered improper.
