BREAKING: Former Deputy AG Sally Yates says she learned of Flynn’s call with Kislyak from OBAMA

It’s been revealed today that Deputy AG Sally Yates, who was acting AG until Trump fired her, says she learned of Flynn’s phone call with Kislyak from Obama himself on January 5th, as Byron York reveals below:

The short version is that Obama was meeting with Yates, Comey, Brennan and Clapper in the Oval Office on January 5th for an intel briefing. After the meeting was over, Obama specifically asked Yates and Comey to stay behind and told them about Flynn’s phone call with Kislyak and that they had discussed sanctions. Obama said he didn’t want to know anymore about the phone call, perhaps to protect himself, but was “seeking info on whether the White House should be treating Flynn differently, given the information.”

In other words Obama was instructing the FBI and DOJ to go after Flynn. Yates, who didn’t know anything about the call, quickly got up to speed and remembers Comey referring to the Logan Act. And as we all know, that’s exactly what the FBI and DOJ used to go after Flynn. Obama was in on it from the start.
