Former Obama administration officials should be concerned after the investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe became a criminal matter, Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera said Friday.
U.S. Attorney John Durham’s ongoing probe into potential FBI and Justice Department misconduct in the run-up to the 2016 election through the spring of 2017 has transitioned into a full-fledged criminal investigation, two sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News on Thursday night.
“I predict in the next week or two, you’re gonna see a run on criminal defense attorneys in Washington, D.C. by people further up the food chain in the previous administration,” said Rivera on “Fox & Friends,” questioning what former President Barack Obama and his inner circle knew about the probe into Trump’s campaign.
“Did Barack Obama know that the intelligence agencies were seeking to delegitimize his successor? At what point did he know? What did he authorize? What role did he play? he asked.
