The scandals of his administration are coming back to bite Barack Obama.
And they have put him in a tight corner.
This unraveling secret connection is causing Barack Obama sleepless nights.
When The New York Times ran an “anonymous” op-ed two years ago they claimed that the writer was a “senior administration official.”
In truth, the author was Miles Taylor, a low-level, disgruntled former staffer who only served as DHS chief of staff for weeks.
While The New York Times claimed that they had to publish the piece anonymously to protect Taylor’s identity, by the time the piece was published, he was no longer listed as being any part of the DHS leadership.
He supports Biden, is a CNN contributor and a former Google employee.
He’s part of the bureaucratic machine that has been working to undermine Donald Trump from the very beginning.
Miles Taylor was involved in the FBI’s investigation into retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and two Senate Republicans are looking to get the notes on his involvement fully declassified.
Michael Flynn was unfairly targeted by the FBI under the Obama administration as an underhanded way of attacking Trump.
The Republican senators want a full explanation of the connection between Taylor and Flynn.
Senate Homeland Security Chairman Ron Johnson and Senate Finance Chairman Chuck Grassley released “Director’s Briefing Notes, Crossfire Hurricane, 1 May 2017.”
However, the document is heavily redacted and the Senators are asking for Attorney General William Barr to declassify the full report and Taylor’s interview notes.
“This 11-page document includes information about the status of the then-ongoing investigations into those individuals and references new information obtained through witness interviews,” Johnson and Grassley wrote, adding, “This heavily-redacted document suggests that the FBI spoke directly to Taylor and it also provides additional information relating to Crossfire Hurricane. Accordingly, we request that the entire document be further declassified … In addition, we request all records relating to the FBI’s interview of Miles Taylor, including all 302s and notes, to better understand his role in the Flynn investigation.”
Miles Taylor was interviewed but the page-long notes have been blacked out. He was interviewed in connection to his Flynn Intel Group.
“We believe that further declassification is appropriate at this time because, among other factors, the Inspector General’s review of Crossfire Hurricane is closed; the investigation has already been the subject of years of oversight, public hearings, and document productions; and there is a strong public interest in knowing and understanding what really transpired between and among federal government officials relating to Crossfire Hurricane,” Johnson and Grassley said.
The investigation into Flynn was an abuse of power that should never have happened.
The FBI’s interview notes on their meeting with Taylor should be declassified to make clear what part Taylor had in that shocking Trump attack.
