Former deputy national security advisor to President Obama, Ben Rhodes said that Attorney General William Barr and the Department of Justice “will find nothing” on the Obama White House, according to PJ Media. Moreover, Rhodes said there is no evidence that the Obama White House was involved in the Trump campaign and Russian collusion investigation.
“No, no, I cannot be clear enough about this. We didn’t even know there was an FBI investigation of Trump. I didn’t. President Obama didn’t, like, we actually abided by the firewalls between – if there were any investigations that took place, those decisions were made in the Justice Department, in the FBI, not in the White House,” Rhodes said Thursday following a talk at Georgetown University about his book The World as It Is: A Memoir of the Obama White House.
On the dossier, Rhodes grew increasingly defensive saying,”We had nothing to do with this dossier. ”
Rhodes continued, “I’m not an investigator. I haven’t even read this whole dossier. You guys are focused on this. Have fun, have your witch-hunt. We did not initiate this.”
