Former UN Ambassador John Bolton suggested Sunday that the hacking of the Democratic National Committee may have been a “false flag” operation by the Obama administration.

“It is not at all clear to me just viewing this from the outside, that this hacking into the DNC and the RNC computers was not a false flag operation,” Bolton, who was being considered for a senior position in the State Department, told Fox News.

“Are are you actually accusing someone here in the administration or in the intelligence community of trying to throw something?” Eric Shawn pressed Bolton.

“We just don’t know. But I believe that intelligence has been politicized in the Obama administration to a very significant degree.”

In a later interview with Fox News, Bolton said he thought the conclusion that Russia hacked the election to help Donald Trump win the presidency was “arrived at too early.”

Bolton questioned why the Russians would leave clues that show the country was trying undermine Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, but no evidence as to whether they had hacked her private email server.

“Why did the Russians run their smart intelligence services against Hillary’s sever and run their dumb intelligence severs to leave clues on the RNC and DNC?” he asked.
