The fake news media scoffed when Donald Trump tweeted last March that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower.
But they ended up having to wipe egg off their face.
That’s because a bombshell report revealed the Obama administration was caught red-handed committing the worst crime in American political history.
CNN dropped a report that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was under surveillance:
“A secret order authorized by the court that handles the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) began after Manafort became the subject of an FBI investigation that began in 2014. It centered on work done by a group of Washington consulting firms for Ukraine’s former ruling party, the sources told CNN.
The surveillance was discontinued at some point last year for lack of evidence, according to one of the sources.
The FBI then restarted the surveillance after obtaining a new FISA warrant that extended at least into early this year.
Sources say the second warrant was part of the FBI’s efforts to investigate ties between Trump campaign associates and suspected Russian operatives. Such warrants require the approval of top Justice Department and FBI officials, and the FBI must provide the court with information showing suspicion that the subject of the warrant may be acting as an agent of a foreign power.”
The second FISA warrant – to spy on Manafort when he maintained a residence in Trump Tower – also turned up no evidence of collusion with Russia.
CNN also reports:
“Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation. Two of these sources, however, cautioned that the evidence is not conclusive.”
But the second warrant revealed the length to which the Obama administration was willing to subvert the nation’s intelligence agencies to sabotage a Presidential campaign.
The bullying continued after the Obama administration come up empty-handed in their search for evidence the Trump campaign was conspiring with a foreign power to rig the 2016 election.
After the election, the Obama administration unleashed a plot to frame Trump and his associates for collusion.
In January, the Obama administration implemented a directive making it easier for the NSA and the other 16 intelligence agencies across the federal government to share intercepted communications.
This directive – along with the unmasking of Trump officials – allowed Deep State operatives to selectively leak classified information to create the appearance of scandal.
No evidence proving collusion existed, but the explosive headlines bogged down the Trump administration from implementing the agenda they were elected to enact.
This scheme also led to the ouster of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn after illegal leaks of his conversations with the Russian Ambassador were leaked to the press.
The Obama administration – like the entire left – refused to accept the results of the Presidential election.
Donald Trump’s victory – which he achieved without any help from the donor, political or media establishments – represented and clear and present danger to the elites grip on power.
So the Obama administration operated with the brute force of third world tyrants and ripped the handcuffs off the intelligence community to take Trump down by any means necessary.
