Former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence David Kramer told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Friday that “this is not a Trump story.”
He added, “This is about the Russians.”
He said that the story of the Trump-Russia collusion allegations has been debunked by multiple agencies.
“We have a president that’s lying and we have a press that’s covering it up,” Kramer said.
“The public has to see this.
And we have to do it.”
Kramer said that a lot of the allegations about Trump’s personal life and his personal finances are false, and that it’s clear that the President was not involved in any wrongdoing.
“If we are going to take away the power of the press and give that to the Kremlin, they are going take away that power,” Kramer explained.
“It’s not about Trump.
This is about Russia, and they are the ones that are orchestrating it.
This isn’t about the Trump presidency.
It’s about Russia.””
This is a witch hunt,” Kramer added.”
There are so many people who are just trying to stop the investigation, to put a stop to it, that it seems like it is a big, big story.
The media is covering it as if it’s an election year story.”
Kramer went on to say that the Trump administration has been “playing a lot” to distract people from the Russian hacking.
“This administration is playing a lot to distract, as you can see by the amount of people who have been fired or have been suspended, the number of people out of work,” he said.
He also claimed that the FBI is in turmoil.
“I don’t know what is going on at the FBI,” he continued.
“It’s an agency that was in the midst of a scandal, but it’s still going strong.
They’ve got a lot going on.”KRAMER: ‘If you want to go back to Trump, we are not going back to him’When asked whether the White House believes that the Democrats are behind the recent attacks on Trump, Kramer said, “I don
