Valerie Jarrett Denies Obama Involvement In Russia Probe: "This Was Four Years Ago"

|

Former senior adviser to President Barack Obama Valerie Jarrett talks to FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo about the Trump/Russia investigation.

"I have a high degree of confidence in our intelligence community, investigators comported themselves responsibly," Jarrett said. "Lindsey Graham is the one that encouraged Sen. McCain to turn over the dossier in the first place to the FBI."

"I do know that it’s nearly four years ago and I don’t understand why our focus isn’t on what’s happening right now and today. That’s the investigation I’d like to see," she said.


Bartiromo asked about the origins of the Steele dossier: "What’s happening right now is we are learning the details of what took place and we are getting official confirmation that the FBI knew that the dossier was garbage and made up in a bar because the sub-source of the dossier told FBI officials in early January."

"I was not involved in any of those conversations," Jarrett replied. "But the question I really want to put to you is, what are we doing today?"

"If people want to have an investigation about what happened four years ago, they should do that. But aren’t you concerned about what’s going on right now? Aren’t you worried about the integrity of our upcoming elections? Aren’t you worried about how we’re going to have a safe and fair election?"
