Last week, Michael Flynn was forced to resign from his position as National Security Advisor after a series of illegal leaks showed he had been in contact with the Russian Ambassador before Donald Trump was inaugurated. Days later, former CIA analyst and retired U.S. Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Tony Shaffer dropped a bombshell when he revealed that several of Barack Obama’s administration officials were actually behind the leaks that led to Flynn’s resignation.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that Fox Business host Deirdre Bolton asked Shaffer whether he thought leaks from the Obama administration were “the problem.”
“Absolutely,” Shaffer answered, adding that the Obama administration was “directly involved” with the leak. He went on to say that the blame lay “squarely at the feet of” the former CIA director John Brennan, former director of National Intelligence Jim Clapper, and former deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes.
One day after Flynn resigned, it was reported that Rhodes and others constructed a “behind-the-scenes effort” to “plant a series of damaging stories about Flynn in the national media.” Shaffer pointed out that NBC had said it had received its information from six officials who saw the transcript of Flynn’s call with a Russian official.
“Someone is basically giving away information,” he said.
To combat this, Shaffer urged Trump to get rid of all Obama loyalists that are remaining in his White House.
“That’s why you need to look at a house-cleaning,” Shaffer said, adding that, “some of those professional were selected [during the Obama years] because of their political reliability, not because of their professional ethics.”
