The fake news liberal media is circling the wagons around Barack Obama and trying to deny the revelation that Obama abused his power and spied on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
Several fake news outlets are saying that Trump has provided “no evidence” that Obama tapped his phone –trying to imply that he doesn’t have any evidence. This basically proves that CNN and MSNBC are fundamentally stupid as well as dishonest. Do they really think that Donald Trump would Tweet out to the world an accusation this serious without extremely solid evidence to back up his claim?
An article on the GateWayPundit reports “Earlier this morning, Trump took to Twitter to express his outrage over wiretapping at Trump Tower during Obama’s Presidency. Back in November, the media did confirm that wiretapping did allegedly take place, via Heat Street:”
“Contrary to earlier reporting in the New York Times, which cited FBI sources as saying that the agency did not believe that the private server in Donald Trump’s Trump Tower which was connected to a Russian bank had any nefarious purpose, the FBI’s counter-intelligence arm, sources say, re-drew an earlier FISA court request […].”
“The original FISA request which specifically named and broadly targeted Donald Trump was denied, a second request was redrafted months later which narrowed down on equipment in Trump Tower. The second request is said to have been granted, despite the fact that FBI sources did not believe these servers to be of actual national security or possess any illegal ties to Russia. The notion that this second FISA warrant was granted is highly significant as they exist to investigate cases when Foreign Intelligence is suspected of operations in the US.”
The fake news liberal media should have the information above at their fingertips, but once again they’re lying to the American public to make a very damning, serious scandal that could send Barack Obama to prison, go away.
All these wiretaps and earlier investigations PROVED that there were no “Russian ties” to the Trump campaign but the fake news media continues to make that claim despite knowing that it’s 100 percent false. They don’t want to admit that Hillary lost the election fair and square. (Well, actually Hillary had millions of illegal aliens and dead people voting for her so she rigged the election, but still lost!)
An article from the National Review reports “President Trump’s early Saturday morning tweeting has exploded to the forefront an uncovered scandal I’ve been talking about since early January (including in this weekend’s column): The fact that the Obama Justice Department and the FBI investigated associates of Donald Trump, and likely Trump himself, in the heat of the presidential campaign. To summarize, reporting indicates that, prior to June 2016, the Obama Justice Department and FBI considered a criminal investigation of Trump associates, and perhaps Trump himself, based on concerns about connections to Russian financial institutions. Preliminary poking around indicated that there was nothing criminal involved. Rather than shut the case down, though, the Obama Justice Department converted it into a national-security investigation under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). FISA allows the government, if it gets court permission, to conduct electronic surveillance (which could include wiretapping, monitoring of e-mail, and the like) against those it alleges are ‘agents of a foreign power.’ FISA applications and the evidence garnered from them are classified – i.e., we would not know about any of this unless someone had leaked classified information to the media, a felony.”
The leaking of this FISA-collected surveillance info, which is a felony, would include passing on information from a FISA investigation to the Hillary campaign.
The article continues “…the Obama Justice Department evidently returned to the FISA court in October 2016, the critical final weeks of the presidential campaign. This time, the Justice Department submitted a narrowly tailored application that did not mention Trump. The court apparently granted it, authorizing surveillance of some Trump associates. It is unknown whether that surveillance is still underway, but the New York Times has identified – again, based on illegal leaks of classified information – at least three of its targets: Paul Manafort (the former Trump campaign chairman who was ousted in August), and two others whose connection to the Trump campaign was loose at best, Manafort’s former political-consulting business partner Roger Stone, and investor Carter Page.”
This is proof that Obama was using the government to spy on the Trump campaign. Paul Manafort was Trump’s campaign chairman through August and Roger Stone was a sort of unofficial, but highly effective spokesman and operative working to help the Trump campaign. These men were making frequent phone calls with Donald Trump so spying on them was spying on Trump.
Was Trump’s personal cell phone or landline in the Trump Tower wiretapped? Given the obsession with people around Trump, it would be no surprise. Spying on the high-level, close associates of Trump is effectively the same as spying on Trump, and the fake news media needs to realize they’re going to lose this battle, just like they lost the election.
