It appears there is a lot about the spying on Trump that exceeds in exponential ways, anything Nixon could have deigned. Powerline notes here the issue:
We are now starting to get a picture of how sinister this whole Democratic Party misinformation campaign is. Through the last half of 2016, the Obama administration was desperately searching for evidence of some link between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia. They went to the length of seeking (twice, reportedly) and finally obtaining a FISA order that allowed them to spy on at least one insignificant Trump associate.
In addition, we now know that Susan Rice headed up an operation whereby raw NSA intelligence was sifted for names of Trump associates, no doubt in hopes of uncovering dirt of some sort.* And we also know that these efforts came up dry. The Obama administration found no compromising information about Trump or any of his associates.
Nevertheless, ever since the Inauguration the Democratic Party, especially its press wing in Washington and New York, has relentlessly pushed the Trump/Russia story. What story? There isn’t one. But that hasn’t stopped Democrats in the press from talking about little else for the last three months.
And yet, all along, the Democrats have known that their spying produced nothing. This whole story is almost unbelievably sordid. The relevant Congressional committees should investigate thoroughly, and criminal prosecutions should follow where laws have been broken.
Though Powerline does not really note it, we should point out that the press has always known these reports of collusion were false. They have seen the leaked document so they knew. yet, they continued to carry water for their party. They thus slandered and libeled Trump and his administration. The complicit media did not care and hence furthered the fake news story Trump had something to do with the defeat of Hillary–whose actual vile and violent nature had more to do with it as we learned yesterday.
It appears with every passing day Obama and his administration broke the law. Prosecutions should follow.
The WaPo goes to pains to allude there was collusion, but there wasn’t (FISA warrants are usually granted not because there is a suspicion of something factual). So what does this piece demonstrate? Obama purposely spied on Trump in order to try to find some dirt him. Further, it appears from this story, the spying was vast–as it now has wrapped up yet another member of his team.
In other words, Trump was right again. His tweet was spot on that he was spied on. This is a huge scandal for the breadth of the illegal activity.
But, as it turns out, Cernovich didn’t need a ‘deep throat’ within the NSA or CIA for his blockbuster scoop, all he needed was some well-placed sources inside of a couple of America’s corrupt mainstream media outlets. As Cernovich explains below, his sources for the Susan Rice story were actually folks working at Bloomberg and the New York Times who revealed that both Eli Lake (Bloomberg) and Maggie Haberman (NYT) were sitting on the Susan Rice story in order to protect the Obama administration.
As we have been arguing for nearly 6 months, the notion that Trump colluded with the Russians was always a fantasy. It was an unsubstantiated lie concocted by the Democrat Party to explain to the people, they were not responsible for how bad they performed in the election–it was also meant to deflect the real collusion between Hillary and the Russians. Indeed, the Russians gave the Clinton Foundation money after they received a lucrative Uranium deal. That’s pay for play and collusion.
Eli Lake at Bloomberg blows the lid off the fake news regarding Trump and Russians the last few months:
The National Security Council’s senior director for intelligence, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, was conducting the review, according to two U.S. officials who spoke with Bloomberg View on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly. In February Cohen-Watnick discovered Rice’s multiple requests to unmask U.S. persons in intelligence reports that related to Trump transition activities. He brought this to the attention of the White House General Counsel’s office, who reviewed more of Rice’s requests and instructed him to end his own research into the unmasking policy.
Rice should get a lawyer. Lake write that there is no evidence for wiretapping, but as we have noted, the media has already reported multiple times that Trump was indeed tapped. The Failing NYT has no self awareness of this fact it seems.
Journalist Mike Cernovich has also confirmed that Obama’s Admin broke the law and unmasked citizens in a political hit on Trump. Just based on this fact, it’s already a bigger scandal than Nixon’s Watergate. However, there is surely more to come as we delve into HOW they knew what they knew. Evelyn Farkus seemed to admit just that on the fake news show MSNBC Morning Joe:
It appears that an unwitting leaker outed herself on the Democrat “news” network MSNBC. Evelyn Farkas, the former Obama administration deputy secretary of defense, admitted it seems that she leaked a lot of Trump/Russia material to the Hill. She also admitted to making sure the information would not be discovered as to “how they know what they know.”
I take that to mean that they may have been engaged in spying, and that’s illegal. If they were following the Russian diplomat’s, then why does it matter covering up how they arrived at their information?
The Bell Tolls for the Establishment in all its forms:
For now, only one thing remains certain: the candidate whom the Republican establishment most disliked has the greatest potential in a generation to stop the progressive project and enact the agendas that the Republican establishment most wants. And that paradox has become a source of both great wonderment—and fear.
