Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom told FNC's Maria Bartiromo on 'Sunday Morning Futures' that "high-ranking people throughout the government... had a plot to not have Hillary Clinton indicted so that she could remain the flawed candidate that she was."
Kallstrom said the "plot" to fix the 2016 election goes "right to the top," meaning President Obama and former CIA director John Brennan.
Kallstrom cited text messages from FBI counterintelligence chief Peter Stzrok which appear to show "they had a backup plan to frame Donald Trump" as a Russian agent.
"This whole thing is a total phony," he said about the Muller probe. "How would you feel... if someone had a phony scheme about you go on for months and months and months?"

Asked if Comey was necessarily aware of McCabe's actions, Kallstrom said: "Jim Comey is not a stupid individual. I think he's naive and has an ego the size of the Empire State Building, and he has a lot of other faults, that got him into this trouble. But I could be wrong, they could have been in lockstep. But there is no question that he, and McCabe others in the FBI, and we'll find out the State Dept., and the National Security Advisors to the president, and John Brennan. Did you see John Brennan's remarks?"
When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America...America will triumph over you. https://t.co/uKppoDbduj— John O. Brennan (@JohnBrennan) March 17, 2018
"The animus and the malice against Trump is prima facie exposure of how he felt about Trump before the election," Kallstrom said. "My sources tell me [Brennan] was leaking almost weekly or daily, and he was taking that bunch of phony crap supposedly from Russia, and peddling that through the Congress and the media, he was one of the active people. I've known him a long time and I think he's involved, and quite frankly, I think it goes right to the top, quite frankly."
Bartiromo asks: "To President Obama?"
"It goes right to the top, and it involves that whole strategy. They were going to win [the 2016 election], nobody would ever know this stuff, and they just unleashed the intelligence community. Look at the unmaskings? We haven't even heard about that yet. Look at the way they violated the rights of these American citizens?" Kallstrom explained.
"I hope Gen. Flynn sues a lot of people, because he was handled so bad... He didn't lie to the FBI. They didn't even interview him about a crime. He was in his legal authorized mode when all that happened," he said.
"They are the people who committed felonies, not the General. They've ruined [Flynn] - and because they threatened his son, you know, they bankrupted this guy that gave his life to this country. Just the whole dealings. Look how they dealt with the IRS? There are so many things they have done badly."
