In an effort to help the Trump White House and “feckless” Republicans running for cover from the post-Flynn fallout, Mark Levin asked the real question about the recent intelligence leaks that led to National Secuirty Advisor Michael Flynn's departure: “What did Barack Obama know and when did he know it?”
“Where did the orders come from to intercept these phone calls? To record these phone calls?” Levin asked on his radio show Wednesday night. And, most-importantly, “Who knew about it?”
“It is not that simple to get authorization from the FISA court … particularly when it comes to private citizens,” Levin said, recalling his experience in Reagan’s Department of Justice. “So the question is how many of these phone calls were intercepted and recorded by the Obama administration.”
“This, ladies and gentlemen, is the real scandal,” Levin concluded. “Because even the NYT has to admit that there is no evidence” Michael Flynn broke the law by communicating with his Russian counterparts.
It’s also important to know, Levin added, how many other members of the Trump team had their communications intercepted by the Obama administration.
“I don’t believe this intercept was a one-off,” he said. “I suspect there have been a lot more intercepts and I don’t believe that he is the only one.”
