Bob Woodward: Obama Officials Could Possibly Face Criminal Charges for Unmasking Scheme of Team Trump

COULD OBAMA OFFICIALS FACE CRIMINAL CHARGES FOR PURPOSEFUL UNMASKING SCHEME

From The Washington Examiner comes the following revaluations from Bob Woodward, yes of Watergate fame, stating that Obama administration officials could face criminal charges for unmasking the names of Trump transition team members from surveillance of foreign officials.  Woodward said that allegations from a report that say President Trump’s transition team was named in surveillance reports of foreign individuals would be “gross violations.” And yes America, if this all comes to fruition, this is worse than Watergate. If these allegations prove true, who really believes that Obama was not aware of it all?

Don’t worry Hillary, you are a terrible candidate, but I have a plan …

The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward warned on Wednesday that there are people from the Obama administration who could be facing criminal charges for unmasking the names of Trump transition team members from surveillance of foreign officials.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said earlier that he had briefed Trump on new information, unrelated to an investigation into Russian activities, that suggested that several members of Trump’s transition team and perhaps Trump himself had their identities “unmasked” after their communications were intercepted by U.S. intelligence officials.

The revelation is notable because identities of Americans are generally supposed to remain “masked” if American communications are swept up during surveillance of foreign individuals.

The WAPO’s Bob Woodward is hardly a right wing conservative and stated that there are people from the Obama administration who could be facing criminal charges for unmasking the names of Trump transition team members from surveillance of foreign officials.

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.

From FOX News:

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.

Flashback: Obama Mocks Trump For Suggesting He Can Bring Jobs Back … Guess What 235,000 Jobs Created in First Month of Trump Presidency

REMEMBER WHEN THIS FOOLISH PRESIDENT MOCKED TRUMP ABOUT CREATING JOBS?

Remember during the 2016 presidential campaign when Barack Obama mocked candidate Donald Trump for his ability to bring jobs back and create them. Like everything during the Obama years, it was all one big joke, made by Obama who could have cared less to have America employed or help the hard working men and women of America find a good paying job. Obama mocked Trump by saying, did he have a magic wand. Hmm, I guess Trump did have a magic wand and an answer. You Obama, had none.

Take a look at the ADP jobs numbers for February where 295,000 were created and the government jobs number of 235,000 jobs created. It would appear that President Trump knows exactly what he is doing and Obama did not have a clue. Obama wanted America to get used to no jobs growth stating that’s just the way it is and President Trump wants to Make America Great Again!!!

TRUMP ECONOMY: US Private Sector Created 298K Jobs in February vs. 190K Estimated as per ADP

JOBS, JOBS, JOBS … MAKING AMERICA EMPLOYED AGAIN!!!

As per CNBC, employment in the private sector went through the roof in February 2017 as 298,000 jobs were created!!! The market expectation was 190,000, a 91% increase. Welcome to the President Donald Trump “Making America Great Again” economy.

As I have stated in the past and will continue … what are Democrats, the LEFT and the MSM going to do and say when the Trump Administration succeeds for the American people? Do you really want to be on the erong side and look like you are trying to obstruct the economy and jobs? Good luck in 2018.

Via CNBC:

Companies added jobs at a blistering pace in February, with a notable shift away from the service-sector positions that have dominated hiring for years, according to a report Wednesday.

Employment in the private sector surged by 298,000 for the month, with goods producers adding 106,000, ADP and Moody’s Analytics said. Construction jobs swelled by 66,000 and manufacturing added 32,000.

The total shattered market expectations of 190,000, according to economists surveyed by ADP. The blockbuster report also solidified market expectations for the Fed to hike interest rates next week. Probability for an increase jumped to 91 percent after the release, according to the CME.

The year is off to a sizzling start for job creation, according to the ADP counts. January added 261,000 positions, a number that was revised upward from the originally reported 246,000.

“Confidence is playing a large role,” Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics, told CNBC. “Businesses are anticipating a lot of good stuff — tax cuts, less regulation. They are hiring more aggressively.”

Exxon Mobil Corp. Announced It Plans to Spend $20 Billion Over 10 Years Along the Gulf Coast Resulting in the Creation of 45,000 Jobs

JOBS, JOBS, AND MORE JOBS DURING THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY …

In a press release from Exxon Mobil Corp, they stated that they will be expanding capacity along the U.S. Gulf Coast and plan to invest in $20 billion over the next 10 years and crating over 45,000 jobs. Exxon-Mobile went on to say that many of these are high-skilled, high-paying jobs averaging about $100,000 a year. They also went on to say that the creation of these jobs would have a “multiplier effect” creating more jobs in these communities to service these new investments. This is how capitalism works America. President Donald Trump congratulated Exxon-Mobile and stated, “This is exactly the kind of investment, economic development and job creation that will help put Americans back to work.”

Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) is expanding its manufacturing capacity along the U.S. Gulf Coast through planned investments of $20 billion over a 10-year period to take advantage of the American energy revolution, Darren Woods, chairman and chief executive officer, said Monday.

The projects, at 11 proposed and existing sites, are expected to generate thousands of new high-paying jobs and $20 billion in increased economic activity in Texas and Louisiana, Woods said, highlighting the company’s Growing the Gulf initiative in a keynote speech today at the CERAWeek 2017 conference.

“Importantly, Growing the Gulf also creates jobs and lasting economic benefits for the communities where they’re located,” Woods said. “All told, we expect these 11 projects to create over 45,000 jobs. Many of these are high-skilled, high-paying jobs averaging about $100,000 a year. And these jobs will have a multiplier effect, creating many more jobs in the communities that service these new investments.”

But the Democrat-media complex is so quick to give Barack Obama the credit for this and not President Donald Trump. The Obama water carrying ABC News wrote, “But Exxon’s expansion plan was hatched long before Trump entered the White House: investments began in 2013, during Barack Obama’s presidency, and are expected to continue through at least 2022, according to Exxon.” REALLY? As if fossil fuel related jobs would have ever been created in an Obama administration or Hillary Clinton. GET REAL. Who honestly has the audacity but the liberal MSM to think that fossil fuel jobs and investment would have taken place under a presidency that loathed oil.

Presidents do not generally create jobs, unless you are Donald Trump and actually get personally involved in negotiations with companies and keep jobs in America as opposed to going elsewhere, what presidents do is to create an environment conducive to business. That is what Trump has done. There is no way under the liberal war on coal and energy that Exxon-Mobile would have ever pulled the trigger on this.

But Exxon’s expansion plan was hatched long before Trump entered the White House: investments began in 2013, during Barack Obama’s presidency, and are expected to continue through at least 2022, according to Exxon.

Still, during a keynote speech Monday at an oil and gas industry conference in Houston, Woods gave credit to the Trump administration.
