Sidney Powell, the attorney for former National Security Advisor, Gen. Michael Flynn directly accused former President Barack Obama of having direct knowledge of the plot to frame her client.
"These agents specifically schemed and planned with each other how to not tip him off, that he was even the person being investigated," said Powell in an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."
She pointed to evidence that FBI agents never told Michael Flynn that they were investigating him and did not warn him that it would be a federal crime to lie during their private conversation.
"So they kept him relaxed and unguarded deliberately as part of their effort to set him up and frame him," Powell continued.
According to recently released testimony, President Obama revealed during an Oval Office meeting weeks before the interview that he knew about Flynn's phone call with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, apparently surprising then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.
After the meeting, Obama asked Yates and then-FBI Director James Comey to "stay behind." Obama "specified that he did not want any additional information on the matter, but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information."
"The whole thing was orchestrated and set up within the FBI, [former Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper, [Former CIA Director John] Brennan, and in the Oval Office meeting that day with President Obama," Powell said.
When asked if she believes that Flynn was the victim of a plot that went all the way up to Obama, Powell said, "Absolutely."
