Sen. Rand Paul says that he “strongly believes” that former President Barack Obama was behind the FBI’s illegitimate investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Fox News host Martha MacCallum asked Paul on Tuesday, “Do you think that it is right to let the American people know who decided to unmask General Flynn from those phone call transcripts?”
“Absolutely and I don’t believe any of this could have happened without President Obama,” Paul said. “I completely believe that not only did he know — and others have already said that he knew about the conversation, he knew about trying to go after General Flynn and that it was being directed from the White House.”
“So I have every expectation that President Obama is in the middle of this,” Paul added. “But I think it’s worse.
