Yesterday the Department of Justice released a number of documents backing up the decision to drop the criminal case against General Michael Flynn. In them, it was revealed President Barack Obama was in on the Flynn takedown, knew about the FBI wiretapping his phone in 2016 and asked whether his case should be "treated differently" moving forward. He even took the time to brief then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, in the Oval Office, on what he knew.

During an appearance on Hannity Thursday night, conservative radio host Mark Levin referred to the documents as "Barack Obama's blue dress."
"This is Barack Obama's blue dress," Levin said holding up the documents. "Let me explain what I mean. We're supposed to believe that during the Obama administration the FBI went rogue. The Department of Justice went rogue. The CIA went rogue. The DNI went rogue. The NSA went rogue. We have all these leaks in the newspapers, The New York Times and the Washington Post that anybody can read and see and Barack Obama didn't know anything? Poor Barack Obama, poor Joe Biden. The fact of the matter is, they've never been asked. They've never been asked about any role they've had."
"This is a massive coverup of the greatest scandal in American history. We expect and we don't like it when the Russians interfere with our elections, or the Chinese or the Iranians or the North Koreans, they're the enemy and they ought to pay for it. But we don't expect the Obama administration and the Democrats to interfere with elections, to send spies into the opposition party's campaign. To lie to a federal court, to fix evidence...that's why all along I've been calling this a silent coup," he continued. "This tells us that Obama knew...the fact of the matter is Barack Obama knew all about this."
