This morning there should be apologies given to the 45th President of the United States of America by every major news outlet and, more importantly by the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama.
Foxnews.com reported on March 5th that…
Former President Obama on Saturday denied President Trump’s accusation that Obama had Trump Tower phones tapped in the weeks before the November 2016 election.
“Neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false,” said Kevin Lewis, a spokesman for the former president.
Trump made the claim in a series of early Saturday morning tweets that included the suggestion that the alleged wiretapping was tantamount to “McCarthyism” and “Nixon/Watergate.”
“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism,” Trump tweeted.
“Is it legal for a sitting President to be ‘wire tapping’ a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!” he said in another tweet.
Trump also tweeted that a “good lawyer could make a great case of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!”
“How low has President Obama gone to tap (sic) my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergage. Bad (or sick) guy!” the president continued.
Trump does not specify how he uncovered the Obama administration’s alleged wiretapping.
Yesterday, Foxnews.com reported that
Members of the intelligence community “incidentally collected” communications from the Trump transition team during legal surveillance operations of foreign targets, a top Republican lawmaker said Wednesday afternoon.
House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said this produced “dozens” of reports which eventually unmasked several individuals’ identities and were “widely disseminated.”
He said none of the reports he had read mentioned Russia or Russians and he was unsure whether the surveillance occurred at Trump Tower — as President Trump has suggested. Nunes also was unsure if then President-elect Trump was captured by the surveillance, which occurred in November, December and January.
“I recently confirmed on numerous occasions the intelligence community incidentally collected intelligence,” Nunes said.
Democrats quickly criticized him for his comments.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, released a statement:
“This afternoon, Chairman Devin Nunes announced he had some form of intercepts revealing that lawfully gathered intelligence on foreign officials included information on U.S. Persons, potentially including those associated with President Trump or the President himself. If accurate, this information should have been shared with members of the committee, but it has not been. … The Chairman also shared this information with the White House before providing it to the committee, another profound irregularity, given that the matter is currently under investigation. I have expressed my grave concerns with the Chairman that a credible investigation cannot be conducted this way.”
The revelations could at least partially back up some allegations made by Trump earlier this month, when he tweeted that former President Barack Obama had “wiretapped” him, though top lawmakers have sharply disputed those claims. FBI Director James Comey also testified earlier this week he had no evidence to support the claims.
Nunes said he told House Speaker Paul Ryan earlier Wednesday about his findings. He later said he briefed Trump, calling some of the collection “inappropriate.”
Trump commented briefly afterward, saying he felt “somewhat” vindicated by Nunes’ comments.
“There’s a lot of questions that I think his statement raises, and that I hope we can get to the bottom of,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer also said.
He said the NSA had been “very helpful” during the investigation, however, he was unsure if “the FBI is going to comply.”
Nunes said the surveillance collection was “legally collected foreign intelligence under FISA incidental collection.” But Nunes said he was “alarmed” the intelligence “ended up in reporting channels and was widely disseminated.”
It was previously reported that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was “unmasked” in this way, however, Nunes said “additional names” were unmasked as well.
He said he didn’t know what foreign intelligence value the surveillance had “and why people would need to know that about President-elect Trump and his transition team.” Nunes did not identify which foreign targets were under surveillance.
Asked if he thought Trump was spied on, Nunes replied: “I’m not gonna get into legal definitions here, but clearly I have a concern.”
So, boys and girls, the president was right all along.
What will be interesting to watch now, will be the backpedaling and parsing by the Main Stream Media and the denial and whining by the Democrat Elite and all of those poor souls who are continuing to throw a National Temper Tantrum, fueled by their refusal to accept the fact that Donald J. Trump is the President of the United States, placed in office by a fair election.
Rush Limbaugh said on his program yesterday that
Folks, Trump is not the guy we need to worry about being, you know, an order of fries short of a Happy Meal. That’s the media and the left. They’re the people with the elevator not going to the top floor. It is not Donald Trump.
These people are seething with rage in there over this news. Part of it I guess exposes them. I mean, there’s intel. They denied there was intel, denied there was an investigation, and now Nunes has found some of it, and some of it he found is what has been reported on by the media.
Faced with the reality of a splintered Democratic Party, which has alienated its base by moving to the Extreme Far Left of the Political Spectrum, the Former President, Barack Hussein Obama, while still in office, gathered information of Trump’s Transition Team.
And, his Administration named names.
As the Citizen Statesman became the President and started settling in, the Former Petulant President Pantywaist, encouraged “rebellion”, as if the reality of a nation being torn asunder was some sort of “Star Wars” Movie, through the use of his “benefactor’s”(the Former Nazi Sympathizer, George Soros’) money in the funding of manufactured protests and a Media-Driven, Community -Organizing Assault, which includes the Former President’s own “Organizing For America” Website.
Not unlike the Bolsheviks of the Russian Revolution, this “rebellion”, with their willing accomplices in the Main Stream Media, launched a massive assault, through the dissemination of propaganda, manufactured protests, and Fake News, in order to somehow diminish the sitting President, in the hopes of regaining their lost power and continuing their mission, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky.
It is way past time for the Soros-funded Far Left to move on and for THEM to stop their National Temper Tantrum, which at this point, is doing nothing by making them look like a bunch of spoiled brat losers who have never grown up.
Oh, and by the way, Former President Obama, we’ll be waiting for your apology to President Trump. Since you have set up shop to run your “Shadow Government” in D.C, it will be a local call.
Until He Comes
