Skip to comments.KT McFarland: FBI tried to set me up for 'perjury trap' in Trump-Russia probe

Former Deputy National Security Adviser K.T. McFarland said Friday that the FBI -- under the purview of the Mueller investigation -- tried to set up her up in a "perjury trap."
Appearing on "Fox & Friends" with host Brian Kilmeade, McFarland -- who served under former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn -- explained that her life "went to hell" at the beginning of the Russia probe because investigators were convinced she was President Trump's to the Russians.
"The FBI showed up at my house unannounced. I was all by myself. They come in and I said, 'Do I need a lawyer for anything? I have never met with any Russians. I have never dealt with any Russians,'" she explained.
The agents said that while they couldn't tell her not to get a lawyer, they just wanted a "little bit of information" to help them with the investigation.
"So, I naively went along with it. The whole time they were setting me up for a perjury trap," she told Kilmeade. "Because Brian, they seized all of my files, my documents, text messages, cell phones from the period I was in government...They had control of them. They wouldn't let me have control of them."
However, the search turned out to be fruitless for all parties involved.
"They thought they could pressure me to say, 'Well, I lied in one of my early talks with you guys when I didn't have access to my information,'" she mused.
McFarland added that she was questioned about a 90-minute period spent in the president's Mar-a-Lago Club in which she didn't have any recorded correspondence or conversation in her phone records. That's when, McFarland said, they asked her whether that was the time she met with Trump to get marching orders.

This is the government of the United States? and some are still there??? why in God’s name are they not all fired! we have a fighter.... so FIRE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We need a list of these FBI agent’s names. After they are arrested we need their colleagues questioned as to why they did not file a report with the IG.
I am surprised KT went along with an FBI interview without a lawyer. She’s been around DC long enough to know better.
And to think there are people who believe the coup has failed.
Exactly! I don’t know what the F&*! they’re waiting for!
There comes a time to raise holy hell and not let go until it’s done!! Putting up with it just lets lets it last and go on and on... do a raging fit and get them out of their offices and GONE!!
Wray said mistakes were made. It’s over.
New rule for talking to any fed LEO: always have a lawyer. The GOTCHA rule is never set aside, there is never just need some information, everything is going on a 302. And, Hannity is full of crap..
really disgusting. KGB, Gestapo, you name it tactics. Trump and all his admin presumed guilty. Unleash the dogs. Screw the people who voted in the POTUS. Not one single individual has been held accountable, while Stone gets jail. Sick.
Mistakes with people’s lives... homes... families... and they thought they had that right.. they still think that! Powerful people don’t have any more right to take a person and destroy them.... a peg or 2 needs to be fixed on them.
I am old enough and been through enough that I am not in favor of taking absolute crap from those who think they can dish it...they can’t unless allowed to! There comes a time when it’s just DONE.. no matter what the cost.. it’s DONE!!!
Where was the FBI when obama and hillary were facilitating the 35 year lease of Port Canaveral’s container terminal to Dr. Jafar and the Iraqi’s?
How about some answers on THAT Mr. Comey and Mr. Brennen?
Advice for avoiding a perjury trap when confronted with law enforcement. Never waive your 5th amendment rights. Never speak without your legal counsel present. Let your counsel speak for you. Do not sign anything. Had Roger Stone done so he would be a free man now with money in his pocket.
Where is your line in the sand? do you have a limit?
I do and I’ve used it.... it works... once you take a stand and in your gut you are sure you will go to the end with it...it works....
so get that daggone swamp emptied!!!!!!!!!!!!
I honestly believe the rats at the hill along with the spineless weasel RINOS and scary cats republicans have handcuffed the president from doing his job!! Are you kidding me if Trump was to fire ALL the cabal swamp creatures at one time the D.C. Morons would absolutely go ape crazy!! Did you read Brennan tweet about calling all swamp animals to go full revolt and start a war...bastard needs to be in EFFIN jail!! I hope he gets his ..soon!!
If you want to throw the House Dems out next time..... your the timing of your indictments has to be perfect.
