Hannity Discusses with Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA): Is There a Potential ‘Smoking Gun’ Showing Obama Administration Spied on Trump Team? (VIDEO)
WAS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP CORRECT, DID THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SPY ON TEAM TRUMP?
House Intelligence Chair Devin Nunes appeared with Sean Hannity last night to discuss the issue That the Trump team was under surveillance during the Obama administration. From Legal Insurrection come the following key takeaways:
- The surveillance occurred in November, December and January. Nunes thinks this is serious and warrants examination by the Trump administration.
- The intelligence was disseminated “far and wide” among various agencies. Nunes says that it appears to have been done legally but questions why it was done in the first place.
- Nunes suggests that the identities of other Americans besides General Flynn were unmasked. Also, it is still unknown who did the unmasking and how many people were involved in that action.
Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week, a source told Fox News.
Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President Trump accused his predecessor of having wiretappedhim in a series of now-infamous tweets posted on March 4.
The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump, according to sources.
The key to that conclusion is the unmasking of selected U.S. persons whose names appeared in the intelligence, the sources said, adding that the paper trail leaves no other plausible purpose for the unmasking other than to damage the incoming Trump administration.
Mark Levin on Fox & Freinds Weekend Says the Evidence is Overwhelming of Obama Wiretapped Trump (VIDEO)
CONSERVATIVE TALK RADIO HOST, THE GREAT ONE MARK LEVIN, SAYS EVIDENCE OVERWHELMING …
On Fox & Friends Sunday, Conservative radio talk show host provided the step by step evidence that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump and stated that the evidence was overwhelming. A sitting president is investigating a presidential candidate of the other party. Hmm, how Nixonian. One thing is for certain, this needs to be investigated. The sad reality is the MSM will just run cover for Obama, when they should actually be trying to find the truth.
Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” while discussing President Donald Trump’s tweets accusing the former Obama administration of wiretapping Trump Tower before the election, conservative radio talk show host Mark Levin broke down the wiretapping reporting.
Levin said, “Well, a pleasure to be here. The evidence is overwhelming. This is not about President Trump’s tweeting. This is about the Obama administration spying, and the question is not whether it spied. We know they went to the FISA court twice. The question is who they did spy on and the extent of the spying that is the Trump campaign, the Trump transition, Trump surrogates.”
President Donald Trump Tweets Obama Wire Tapped Him …”Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”
IF THE MEDIA WANTS ITS WATERGATE, HERE IT IS … DO YOU HAVE THE GUTS TO INVESTIGATE IT?
This morning President Donald Trump tweeted out the following bombshell … that the Obama Administration “wire tapped” the Trump Towers during the election. Whether this is true or not, this begins to make some sense. As Rush Limbaugh stated the other day, Obama was waging a silent coup by setting land mines along the way as he was in his way out the door. It would make sense that there were wire taps as how has there been so much so-called info on Trump admin individuals. Then there is of course the crimes that are being committed by the purposeful, wanted and intended leaks to the media. This entire anti-Trump attack was obviously a concerted and planned event. So who do you think was responsible for such a “community organized” coup?
Here is your Watergate MSM, it just happens to be a Democrat who appears to have been committing the crimes, do you have the guts to do your job and fairly investigate this story? Or are you going to just act like the liberal sycophants that you are and defend Obama? This is what you have been waiting for all your lives, its worse than Watergate … do your job, or just shut up forever.
Yup, just like Obama never had anything to do with or knew noting about “Fast & Furious” or the fact that conservative Tea Party non-profit organizations were targeted by Obama’s IRS. Former Obama foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes tweeted earlier in the day that: “No President can order a wiretap. Those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you.” I guess it all depends on what is, is. Its not the president who ordered the wire tap, its was one of his minions.
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.
UPDATE II: The Democrat media complex comes to the defense of Barack Obama and uses the term “false”.
At this point we have no idea is this story is tru or false, yet some how the MSM already knows that it is false. We know that there was a FISA request. The MSM should want to be all over this story to find the truth. Yet, they have already determined that its a false comment. HOW THEY HELL DO THEY KNOW ITS FALSE? If the situation was reversed they would already be looking to impeach Trump.
Mark Levin: “The Question is: Was Obama Surveilling Top Trump Campaign Officials During the Election?” (Audio)
IF THE MSM MEDIA WANTS THEIR WATERGATE, THEY NEED TO INVESTIGATE THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION …
During Conservative talk show radio host Mark Levin’s show he stated the following as Democrats, the LEFT, the MSM and weak kneed Republicans went after ridiculous charges against AG Jeff Sessions,“There’s a much bigger scandal here: We have a prior administration. Barack Obama and his surrogates, who are supporting Hillary Clinton and her party, the Democratic Party. Who were using the… intelligence activities to surveil members of the Trump campaign, and to put that information out in the public.”
Thus we had a sitting president going after a political enemy using the FISA court and the powers fo the federal government. The below is a must listen to audio tape. Please inform yourself and do so. As Instapundit opines, I THINK TRUMP NEEDS TO APPOINT A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO INVESTIGATE. THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS CHARGE. Mark Levin: Was Obama Using NSA Against Trump During 2016 Campaign? LBJ used government resources to spy on opponents. Why should we think Obama wouldn’t?
About Obama’s efforts against Trump: “There’s a much bigger scandal here: We have a prior administration. Barack Obama and his surrogates, who are supporting Hillary Clinton and her party, the Democratic Party. Who were using the… intelligence activities to surveil members of the Trump campaign, and to put that information out in the public. Those are police state tactics. Nothing Flynn or Sessions has done is even in the same category as that,” Levin said.
“The question is: Was Obama surveilling top Trump campaign officials during the election?” he asked.
“We absolutely know this is true, the FBI did a preliminary criminal investigation based on a potential connection between a server in Trump Tower and a couple of Russian banks. That turned out to be a dry hole, but one of the most outrageous things I’ve ever seen… totally uncovered by the media. Instead of closing the investigation, the Obama administration tried to turn it into a FISA court investigation in June . Apparently the first application they submitted named Trump.”
“Even the FISA court said no. There wasn’t enough evidence to make out probable cause involving Donald Trump,” he said. “In the middle of the campaign the administration was actively having Trump investigated.”
The MSM continually wants their WATERGATE, yet they only want it if it is the GOP that is being investigated. NOTE TO MSM … INVESTIGATE OBAMA AND YOU WILL HAVE YOUR WATERGATE!!!
If the reports are true — and they certainly appear to be — Obamagate is 100 times bigger than Watergate.
In short, a sitting president wiretapped the nominee of the opposition party, before the election, using the security apparatus of the federal government.
Lame Duck President Barack Obama Bans Oil Drilling in Vast Areas of Atlantic and Arctic Oceans With His Pen
THIS IS THE REASON WHY THERE SHOULD BE A LAW THAT STATES A LAME DUCK PRESIDENT SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO DO NOTHING LIKE THIS TO IMPACT FUTURE PRESIDENTS …
The Divider in Chief, the Community agitator in chief has done it again. Outgoing, lame duck president Barack Obama has banned oil and gas drilling with his pen from hundreds of millions of acres of federally owned land in the Arctic and Atlantic Ocean. What a shock that he would do this on the way out the door and impacting a Trump presidency, as opposed to doing it prior to the 2016 elections. However, the gutless wonder in chief would never had provided such a pre-election gift to the environmental wackos as it would have affected the election in a negative manner for Democrats. Even though White House mouthpieces say this executive order cannot be undone by a future president, look for Trump to squash this like a bug. One thing is for certain when it comes to Trump, he hardly cares about precedent when it comes to this type of stuff and neither do those who elected him president.
Look for the community agitator to further reek havoc as he heads out the door.
President Obama moved to solidify his environmental legacy Tuesday by withdrawing hundreds of millions of acres of federally owned land in the Arctic and Atlantic Ocean from new offshore oil and gas drilling.
Obama used a little-known law called the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act to protect large portions of the Chukchi and Beaufort seas in the Arctic and a string of canyons in the Atlantic stretching from Massachusetts to Virginia. In addition to a five-year moratorium already in place in the Atlantic, removing the canyons from drilling puts much of the eastern seaboard off limits to oil exploration even if companies develop plans to operate around them.
The announcement by the White House late in the afternoon was coordinated with similar steps being taken by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to shield large areas of that nation’s Arctic waters from drilling. Neither measure affects leases already held by oil and gas companies and drilling activity in state waters.
According to White House officials, their actions to make the areas off limits to future oil and gas exploration and drilling as indefinite. They further went on to say that the withdrawals under Section 12-A of the 1953 act used by presidents dating to Dwight Eisenhower cannot be undone by an incoming president. Sorry, I find that almost impossible to believe. I second Instapundit’s opinion in that it is hard to believe that one president’s signature is more important than another’s. To make such a comment that another president, namely Donald Trump, will not be able to undo Obama’s executive order sounds almost vindictive.
“There is a precedent of more than half a century of this authority being utilized by presidents of both parties,” a White House aide said. “There is no authority for subsequent presidents to un-withdraw. .?.?. I can’t speak to what a future Congress will do.”
