“They [FBI agents] weren't after General Flynn. They wanted him to lie about me, make up a story,” President Trump told Maria Bartiromo, during an interview on “Sunday Morning Futures,” on Fox News. “And, with few exceptions, nobody did that.”
He added, “If I were a Democrat instead of a Republican, I think everybody would have been in jail a long time ago; and I'm talking with 50-year sentences.”
“It is a disgrace what's happened,” President Trump continued. “This is the greatest political scam, hoax in the history of our country.”
“People should be going to jail for this stuff and hopefully a lot of people are going to have to pay. No other president should have to go through [this] and I'll tell you, General Flynn and others are heroes,” said the President.
He added, “This was all Obama. This was all Biden. These people were corrupt. The whole thing was corrupt and we caught them.”
“But here's the thing: It was impossible for it to happen without the man that sits right in that chair in the Oval Office. He knew everything,” he continued.
Bartiromo then asked Trump, “Do you believe President Obama directed the U.S. intelligence agencies to spy on you?”
“Yes, he probably directed them, but if he didn't direct them, he knew everything,” Trump said in response
In a tweet on Sunday, the President said that "The Obama Administration is turning out to be one of the most corrupt and incompetent in U.S. history. Remember, he and Sleepy Joe are the reasons I am in the White House!!!"
