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.
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.”
OBAMA HAS POLITICIZED THE IRS AND FBI … WHY NOT THIS?
In an interview Sunday on FOX News, Ambassador John Bolton said that the hacks during the election season could have been “a false flag” operation, possibly committed by the Obama administration itself. Bolton went on to say, “But I believe that intelligence has been politicized in the Obama administration to a very significant degree.” The said reality is that it is even a question that its a possibility. That is just how politicized Obama made things.
Ambassador John Bolton claimed Sunday that hacks during the election season could have been “a false flag” operation — possibly committed by the Obama administration itself.
In an interview with Fox News’ Eric Shawn, Bolton questioned why FBI Director James Comey said during the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private server, there was no direct evidence found of foreign intelligence service penetration, but cyber fingerprints were found in regards to the presidential election.
“It is not at all clear to me just viewing this from the outside, that this hacking into the DNC and the RNC computers was not a false flag,” Bolton said. “So the question has to be asked, why did the Russians run their smart intelligence service against Hillary’s server, but their dumb intelligence service against the election?”
Shawn then asked Bolton — who has been mentioned as a possible Trump appointment — if he was accusing someone in “the administration or in the intelligence community of” the alleged false flag.
“We just don’t know,” Bolton said. “But I believe that the intelligence community has been politicized in the Obama administration to a very significant degree.”
WIKILEAKS: Barack Obama Caught Lying … Obama Knew About Hillary’s Private Emails & Server, but Lied Anyway to We the People
WE HAVE JUST HAD 8 YEARS OF A LIAR IN CHIEF, WHY IN HELL WOULD AMERICA WANT FOUR MORE YEARS F A LYING, CROOKED HILLARY?
Remember back in March when Barack Obama told CBS News that he had only heard about Hillary Clinton’s private emails through news reports? If you don’t, then watch the video below and you will hear it from the horses mouth. Guess who lied? Then again, that is nothing new from the Lying King who brought you Obamacare and you can keep your insurance and doctor if you want to. Just how corrupt is the Obama administration and what a sorry state of affairs for the United States that one presidency would be allowed to lie and deceive the American people so much and not be held accountable. Richard Nixon wishes he was president today.
Emails released by WikiLeaks last week also suggested Obama was complicit in Clinton’s illegal email practices. “Talk to Josh [Earnest] or Eric [Schultz]. They know POTUS and HRC emailed,” Palmieri told Philippe Reines after he expressed concern over Obama’s claim.
Obama lies and tells first he heard of Hillary’s private emails was the news
Check out the docs for yourself from Wikileaks. In an email from email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org, Team Hillary discusses the fact that they need to “clean this up” as Obama has emails from her that are from her personal email account. Imagine that, Obama lied.
More that Obama knew he was lying to the American people …
A March 2015 email chain released by WikiLeaks Tuesday is further proof that President Obama lied to the American people when he said he found out about Hillary Clinton’s private email server from news reports.
“Jen you probably have more on this but it looks like POTUS just said he found out HRC was using her personal email when he saw it in the news,” Clinton spokesman Josh Schwerin wrote to Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri, press secretary Nick Merrill, and others.
Merrill then forwarded Schwerin’s email to longtime Clinton confidante and attorney Cheryl Mills, who sent it to campaign Chairman John Podesta. “We need to clean this up,” she wrote to Podesta. “He has emails from her — they do not say state.gov.”
Obama clearly lied when he told CBS’ Bill Plante that he learned about Clinton’s use of a private email account and server “the same time everybody else learned it through news reports.”
Flashback: Actress & Activist Susan Sarandon Said Hillary Clinton Would be a More Dangerous U.S. President than Donald Trump
FLASHBACK … REMEMBER WHEN ACTRESS AND LIB SUSAN SARANDON SAID THAT HILLARY CLINTON WOULD BE MORE DANGEROUS AS PRESIDENT THAN DONALD TRUMP?
To the Bernie Sanders voters, the democrats who are not happy with Hillary Clinton and to those on the fence, take a moment to pause and think about the comments from the lips of liberal actress Susan Sarandon. She stated that she thought Hillary Clinton would be a far more dangerous president than Donald Trump. Sarandon went on to say that the voters were being fed a line about Trump being dangerous when in reality Sarandon knows that Hillary is not transparent, and “nobody calls her on it.” Food for thought from a liberal regarding Hillary Clinton.
What Difference Does it Makes that I will be a More Dangerous President … All the difference in the world America!
Hollywood actress and activist Susan Sarandon says former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be a more dangerous U.S. president than Donald Trump — provided she’s not indicted first.
Ms. Sarandon, a supporter of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, told a liberal news outlets this week that Mrs. Clinton’s track record portends a much worse future than anything Mr. Trump might catalyze as commander in chief.
“I believe in a way she is more dangerous,” the actress told The Young Turks on Thursday. “They’re both talking to Henry Kissinger, apparently. … She did not learn from Iraq, and she is an interventionist, and she has done horrible things — and very callously. I don’t know if she is overcompensating or what her trip is. That scares me. I think we’ll be in Iran in two seconds.”
The former “Thelma and Louise” star said voters are being “fed” a message that Mr. Trump is “so dangerous” when his promises on illegal immigration amount to a wall being built.
“I don’t know what his policy is. I do know what her policies are, I do know who she is taking money from. I do know that she is not transparent, and I do know that nobody calls her on it,” the Oscar-winning actress continued.
The activist also appeared on MSNBC on Thursday and predicted Mrs. Clinton would be indicted by the Department of Justice for the secret email server she operated out of her New York home as President Obama’s top diplomat.
