K.T. McFarland slammed the Obama administration and the FBI for a “plot from the very beginning” against former National security Adviser Michael Flynn.

The former Deputy National Security Adviser spoke with Fox News host Brian Kilmeade on Monday about the FBI’s Russia investigation, the case against Flynn which was dropped by the Department of Justice last week and how the retired United States Army lieutenant general was set up in a plan that involved even former President Obama himself.

“They were setting it up from the very beginning. They knew from the very beginning and get-go that there was no collusion with the Trump campaign and with the Russians,” McFarland said on “Fox & Friends.”

She added that when she and Flynn met with Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, during the transition before Trump took office, there was a “glaring omission” as the subject of any Russia investigation was not discussed.

Kilmeade asked if she thought members of the Obama administration and the FBI may have believed the three-star general had “sold out” to Russia.

“I don’t know. And I think that only time will tell, when those people have to give their own testimony,” McFarland replied.

“This was a plot from the very beginning. They knew there was no Russia collusion,” she reiterated.

“They knew well before the Mueller investigation that there was no ‘there’ there. Yet, they dragged the country and us as individuals and President Trump into three and a half years of perpetuating this Russia hoax,” she said, noting how the distraction only helped to make China stronger.

“They wanted to deflect attention to something very big. I don’t know what it was that they were trying to cover up. But they went to enormous lengths to cover it up. It’s very clear it wasn’t just a few rogue agents at the FBI. This is not done by some mid-level government official in the Justice Department or the FBI. It was the highest levels of the FBI,” she said, slamming fired FBI Director James Comey for laughing about wiretapping Flynn.

McFarland wanted to know “who knew what and when” in the Obama administration.

“Who was in charge of this massive attack, not just against General Flynn and myself – we were collateral damage. They were always going after President Trump,” she told Kilmeade, who noted that she would be “the last person selling out to the Russians.”

“Is that really sincerely what they thought?” he asked, wondering about the belief that she and Flynn could possibly be colluding with the Russians.

“Or, were they trying to cover something up and is this the ruse they came up with?” McFarland countered.

“You know, the last words that General Michael Flynn said to me the night he left the office in the West Wing on the night he had to resign? He said, ‘You know the irony? I joined the military to fight the Russians,'” she said.

Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, accused officials of plotting to entrap the former national security adviser, saying the plan was “orchestrated” by FBI agents and went “all the way up to the top,” involving Obama.

“These agents specifically schemed and planned with each other how to not tip him off, that he was even the person being investigated,” Powell told Fox News and saying Obama “absolutely” was part of the plan.
