The case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn went all the way up to then-President Barack Obama and his vice president, current presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, Rep. Jim Jordan claimed in an interview Friday. 

"In the Jan. 5, 2017 Oval Office meeting, Obama and Biden were both [there]," the Ohio Republican said on Fox Business' "Mornings With Maria," referring to the meeting where Obama and then-FBI Director James Comey chatted about sharing national security information related to Russia with Flynn. "It has to go all the way to the top."

The next day, Jordan added Friday, Comey spoke with then-President-elect Donald Trump about the Russian document when "he already knew it was false."

Their efforts were one of the last coordinated efforts from the Obama-Biden administration against the incoming Trump administration, said Jordan.

Meanwhile, the House filed articles of impeachment against Attorney General William Barr because "they don't want him digging" into the actions from the Obama administration. 

"They don't want him digging in," said Jordan. "They are trying to destroy him, but he has got the courage to get to the bottom of this."

His comments came after a federal appeals court on Thursday said it will consider the Department of Justice's move to dismiss Flynn's charges.

"It has been so wrong for Gen. Flynn, what they've done to this individual, when they targeted him after the election in November 2016," said Jordan. "They knew that the coverup that they were planning to hide, what they tried to do to Trump, they knew Michael Flynn would figure it out."

Democrats can't admit what happened, he further said, because they had been out to stop Trump, but the American people voted him in.
