Barack Obama’s former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates just testified before the Senate on Wednesday that former FBI director James Comey acted inappropriately in launching his investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged ties with Russia.
After years of accusations against Donald Trump, the truth is finally coming out and does not look good for Comey — or anyone in the Obama administration.
The Washington Times reported on the bombshell on Wednesday:
Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told a Senate panel Wednesday that ex-FBI Director James Comey went “rogue” in the investigation of President Trump’s first national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Ms. Yates was asked if the ex-FBI director had gone “rogue” when he failed to keep the Justice Department informed about the Flynn investigation.
“You can use that term, yes,” she responded.
Justice Department documents unsealed in early 2020 revealed that Comey kept Yates in the dark about his probe into Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn in 2017.
Yates testified that she found out about Comey’s secret investigation from conversations with former President Obama’s ex-Russian ambassador to the U.S. — keep in mind that Yates was Comey’s superior at the time.
The Times continued:
She told Mr. Mueller’s team that she was “flabbergasted” and “dumbfounded” by Mr. Comey’s actions.
On Wednesday, Ms. Yates told senators Mr. Comey’s actions deviated from Justice Department guidelines.
“The difference from the protocol is the FBI conducted the interview without a courtesy call to the White House counsel,” she said.
Yates’ revelation confirms that Comey egregiously overstepped his authority to purposely attack a duly elected President — we already knew that, but sworn testimony makes it impossible to ignore. The walls are closing in on the shockingly corrupt Obama administration.
