Flynn Lawyer: Obama Led Conspiracy to Entrap Trump Official
Attorney Sidney Powell points finger directly at former president
Former President Barack Obama led a conspiracy to entrap Michael Flynn, according to new bombshell claims from the ex-Trump official's lawyer.
Ex-National Security Advisor Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, said Sunday that Obama, other top administration officials, and the FBI were part of a plot to set up her client.
Speaking during an interview on Fox News’s "Sunday Morning Futures," Powell cited the revelation revealed in recently released-documents - that FBI agents didn’t tell Flynn that his answers could be construed as criminal if inaccurate or incomplete, or that he was even under investigation.
“These agents specifically schemed and planned with each other how to not tip him off, that he was even the person being investigated,” she said.
FBI agents conspired with each other in order to mask their investigation and "frame" Flynn, according to Powell.
“So they kept him relaxed and unguarded deliberately as part of their effort to set him up and frame him,” the lawyer stated.
House Intelligence Committee transcripts released last week showed how FBI officials entrapped Flynn — even though they knew the former Army lieutenant general had not colluded with Russia, according to The Daily Caller.
As a result of the revelation, the Department of Justice has decided to drop Michael Flynn’s case.
The lawyer focused on what she described as Obama’s role in the operation — given that the former president has said the exoneration of Flynn means “the rule of law is at risk.”
Powell related that a crucial meeting occurred in the Oval Office on Jan. 5, 2017 when she says Flynn’s fate was effectively sealed.
Former FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former DIA Director John Brennan were all present to brief Obama on Flynn’s case.

“So you think this goes all the way up to the top to President Obama?”
“The whole thing was orchestrated and set up within the FBI, Clapper, Brennan and in the Oval Office meeting that day with President Obama,” Powell told Host Maria Bartiromo.
Bartiromo asked Powell, “So you think this goes all the way up to the top to President Obama?"
“Absolutely,” she responded.
When asked if anyone is going to be charged for this, Powell said, “I have no idea.
"That’s up to [U.S. attorney] John Durham and Attorney General [William] Barr."
She described Flynn’s reaction to the news of his vindication as “disbelief and relief at the same time.”
