We now know for a fact that Spy-in-Chief Barack Obama weaponized the various intelligence agencies at his command to do something unprecedented: spy on a rival presidential campaign, specifically Donald Trump’s.
From what we know so far, Obama’s spies spied on Trump in seven spying ways. Just one of these seven items should make us gasp. Put together, they add up to something that makes Watergate look like a pillow fight.
The Obama administration placed wiretaps all over the Trump campaign, and we are just now learning that it now appears as though wiretaps put in place by foreign countries were part of the operation.
- FISA Warrants Obtained Using Lies
The Obama administration obtained warrants to wiretap Trump associates by lying to FISA judges.
- Sending Spies to Spy on the Trump Campaign
Obama’s FBI director, the disgraced James Comey, ran an all-out spying operation that even utilized spies to spy on the Trump campaign.
The Obama administration called this spying operation filled with spies to spy on Trump… “Crossfire Hurricane.”
- Paid Foreigners to Gather Lies from Foreigners about Trump’s Peeing on Hookers
If you want to talk about foreign meddling in a presidential campaign, how about Obama’s FBI (along with the Hillary Clinton campaign) paying foreigner Christopher Steele, the English leftist who created the hoax dossier, to gather up lies from Russians about Trump’s peeing on hookers.
Another way the Obama administration “wiretapped” Trump was through an unprecedented unmasking operation that was basically a workaround to avoid the American courts. By wiretapping foreigners Trump officials were in contact with, the Obama administration effectively wiretapped Team Trump.
Obama always operated as though no laws applied to him and his noble leftist cause. We’re going to see about that.
@Deplorable Me: As I see things now, the only way Obama can skate on this is if Mueller drops the investigation and states there was no findings and the guilty come forward and take their punishment. Trump did propose letting HRC off before she continued her attacks. Obama had much more integrity than the Clintons. He didn’t steal as much furniture and silver from the White House as the Clintons did!
@Randy: They are all desperate. If Hillary’s incompetence in handling of State Department classified information was all she had to worry about, she would have slunk back under the rotted log where she lives into anonymity. She, Holder, Lynch and Obama all have to fight tooth and nail to keep the truth from coming out and going to jail. Don’t expect them to just give up and turn themselves in. This will get really, really nasty.
They should be treated like the anti-American scum they are.
@Deplorable Me: Actually, grubs under rotten logs have value for fishing. Those other rotten log dwellers have no value!
Claiming he had a scandal free presidency Woo Hoo what a whopper that is and only a idiot would beleive him and Liberals are idiots Hollywood’s full of idiots that support the Democrats
May 30, 2018 — On Fox News, of all places, Trump’s ‘spy’ claim is debunked by Trey Gowdy and even Judge Napolitano
The interview on a FOX News video, with a full transcript. Gowdy’s comments can be found just after the 2:20 time mark.
@Greg: This began as a counter intelligence investigation, in intelligence an informant is a SPY, Gowdy is a putz, he screwed up the Bengazi investigation , he is retiring and looks like going down in flames. It was’nt a criminal investigation can you name that crime yet? They say they were investigating the Russians thats intelligence.
No matter how they try to spin this they were spying on an opposition candidate and are a threat to the Republic.
@Greg: Not debunked at all. First, Gowdy is talking about what Trump wanted to know after he was President and met Comey (speaking of debunking, that meeting debunks the left wing fantasy that Trump colluded with Russians), which was 6 months AFTER Obama had put spies in Trump’s campaign. It also does not explain why Obama put the spies on Trump while not trying to collect any intelligence from the DNC or Hillary’s campaign, where (we are led to believe) actual Russian interference had occurred. It also doesn’t explain why they didn’t notify Trump, which would be providing them with much needed cover now. Nope, Greg… Obama used the FBI to spy on the campaign of the opposition party because he knew Hillary was a criminal and vulnerable in the election, and if she lost all his corruption and lies would be exposed. Legacy… buh-bye.
So, where is the evidence of the criminal investigation? What was the evidence PRIOR to the spying? The spies were utilized BEFORE the FBI investigation. If this was “standard operating procedure”, where were the spies on Hillary’s campaign, where the Russians had already visited?
Struck out again, Greg.
@Deplorable Me: Dont you love it when Greg uses FOX as an authority? 😉
He just couldnt inconvenience himself by allowing or ordering much needed repairs to the White House, not even to have a broken toilet seat replaced, leaks were normal so the roof couldnt be repaired, vermin were his pals so they didnt have those exterminated either, one he even had move along with him to his new DC residence, someone has to clean up the dog poo.
You’re ignoring the main point of the story. Trey Gowdy is saying that the FBI’s initiation of an investigation was entirely proper:
Andrew Napolitano has concluded that Trump’s spy allegations are a load of manure:
What crime might Mueller prove? How about obstruction of justice? If you can’t see the outlines of that in Trump’s behavior since the investigation began, you should have your eyes checked. Trump isn’t fighting to hold back an investigation when there’s nothing serious there to be found.
Can you figure the pardons out? Probably not.
The deafening message of Trump’s Dinesh D’Souza pardon
It won’t work. Somebody is going to talk. Manafort is probably most likely. Kushner is a possibililty.
@Greg: Still, no one explains why, if this was so normal and standard, done to protect Trump from Russian infiltration and interference, Hillary’s campaign was left completely alone. Her emails had been hacked, the DNC had been hacked and there were KNOWN connections (collusion, if you will) with the Russians. Why, with very little evidence and tenuous links to Russia, was the Trump campaign, coincidentally of the OPPOSITE political party of Obama, targeted?
OK. How about it? Where? When? How? Did Trump do something like initiate interference into an ongoing investigation, where the Attorney General secretly met with the husband of the target of the investigation, where the AG ordered the FBI director to publicly call the investigation a “matter”, and where the results of the investigation were written down before the investigation began? See, THAT’S what obstruction of justice looks like; not simply firing incompetent hacks that are working against your administration and supporting seditious activity.
Trump has done nothing wrong while the Obama administration and Hillary were up to their necks in corruption. That is what the “investigation” is all about; to try and protect the real corruption from exposure and punishment. It is failing.
To protect Trump? It was done to protect the nation from a possible threat. Our election process was under attack. There were indications that people inside Trump’s campaign might have been compromised to that end, or might even be complicit. Clinton’s campaign and the DNC were targets of that threat.
Trump seems to think the FBI should have ignored all of that and investigated the targets. Which is pretty much a crazy argument.
Oh, did you miss it? Yeah, that was one of the lies Obama sycophant Clapper threw out one day. Like all the other Obama scandals, we watch Obama’s team just throw one lie after another out to see if anything actually gains traction.
Now, this “possible threat”. As I said, the threat was much more pronounced in the DNC and Hillary campaign. Yet, no spies were scattered around there. So, it appears, in another brilliant strategical move, Obama put the “protection” in the place where there was the LEAST threat. So, instead of the protecting us from Russians lie, it appears the “possible threat” Obama was most concerned with was the threat of Trump winning the election… which he actually did.
Yes. By Democrats. It seems to still be.
