It Looks Like Obama Did Spy on Donald Trump … Just as Trump Said They Did, But Just How Much Did Obama Weaponize the Intel Agencies Against His Enemies?
IT WOULD APPEAR THAT DONALD TRUMP WAS CORRECT, TRUMP WAS WIRE-TAPPED …
Award winning reporter Sharyl Attkisson is not surprised by news seemingly confirming President Trump’s allegation that the Obama administration spied on him and his campaign staff. Why, because that’s exactly what Obama did to her. And so the plot thickens. Remember when Donald Trump claimed that the Obama administration “wire tapped” hum? Remember when the Democrat liberal lap dog media came to the defense of Obama and tried to discount the stories of the so called spying on Trump Towers? Well, it now appears that Barack Obama did spy on Donald Trump. After so many media outlets bashing Trump for his accusations of being wire tapped, now the MSM is reporting the FBI did indeed “wiretap” the former head of Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort, both before and after Trump was elected. That would also mean, if Trump officials, or Donald Trump himself communicated with Manafort during the wiretaps, they would have been recorded, too. Imagine that? This is what happens when you have a MSM in bed with a political party who at all cost looks to conceal the truth and allows of regime to go rogue and flaunt the U.S. Constitution at ever turn, just because they like and agree with a liberal president’s agenda.
Hannity: Trump has been proven right about wiretapping
Many in the media are diving deeply into minutiae in order to discredit any notion that President Trump might have been onto something in March when he fired off a series of tweets claiming President Obama had “tapped” “wires” in Trump Tower just before the election.
According to media reports this week, the FBI did indeed “wiretap” the former head of Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort, both before and after Trump was elected. If Trump officials — or Trump himself — communicated with Manafort during the wiretaps, they would have been recorded, too.
But we’re missing the bigger story.
If these reports are accurate, it means U.S. intelligence agencies secretly surveilled at least a half dozen Trump associates. And those are just the ones we know about.
Besides Manafort, the officials include former Trump advisers Carter Page and Michael Flynn. Last week, we discovered multiple Trump “transition officials” were “incidentally” captured during government surveillance of a foreign official. We know this because former Obama adviser Susan Rice reportedly admitted “unmasking,” or asking to know the identities of, the officials. Spying on U.S. citizens is considered so sensitive, their names are supposed to be hidden or “masked,” even inside the government, to protect their privacy.
In May, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates acknowledged they, too, reviewed communications of political figures, secretly collected under President Obama.
But just how much did Obama weaponize the Intel agencies against his enemies? Move over Richard Nixon, we have a true corrupt president and his name is Barrack Hussein “Millhous” Obama. Does anyone care that a president used Intel agencies to go after his enemies? The Soviet Union and East Germany would be so proud of your actions. Who sees the irony with the LEFT and their endless witch hunt of Trump and the connection with Russian hacking of the 2016 elections, when it was in fact the Obama administration who hacked and spied of U.S. citizens. Sorry, but after the Obama administration weaponized the IRS to attack Conservative Tea Party groups following the 2010 midterm elections, they get no pass or benefit of the doubt on this.
It’s difficult not to see patterns in the government’s behavior, unless you’re wearing blinders.
- The intelligence community secretly expanded its authority in 2011 so it can monitor innocent U.S. citizens like you and me for doing nothing more than mentioning a target’s name a single time.
- In January 2016, a top secret inspector general report found the NSA violated the very laws designed to prevent abuse.
- In 2016, Obama officials searched through intelligence on U.S. citizens a record 30,000 times, up from 9,500 in 2013.
- Two weeks before the election, at a secret hearing before the FISA court overseeing government surveillance, NSA officials confessed they’d violated privacy safeguards “with much greater frequency” than they’d admitted. The judge accused them of “institutional lack of candor” and said, “this is a very serious Fourth Amendment issue.”

Former FBI Director James Comey’s Second Meeting with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch was a Frosty Exchange Where He Confronted Her About Political Interference
THIS IS THE SCANDAL THAT SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATIONS INTERFERENCE IN THE 2016 ELECTION …
As reported at Circa, former FBI director James Comey told members of Congress in closed-door meetings that he confronted former Attorney General Loretta Lynch over her alleged interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.According to reports, the meeting got very tense when Comey confronted Lynch about possible political interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation after showing Lynch a sensitive document she was unaware the FBI possessed. Comey told lawmakers that during the meeting, he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton. WOW!!! Folks, this would be obstruction of justice. According to the account, Comey said “the attorney general looked at the document then looked up with a steely silence that lasted for some time, then asked him if he had any other business with her and if not that he should leave her office.” It had been previously known that Comey testified that Lynch told him to call the FBI criminal investigation a “matter.”
This is all starting to make sense as the dots are connected and who really committed the real collusion and crimes
Ex-FBI Director James Comey has privately told members of Congress that he had a frosty exchange with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch last year when he confronted her about possible political interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation after showing Lynch a sensitive document she was unaware the FBI possessed, according to sources who were directly briefed on the matter.
During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last Thursday, Comey alluded to the second exchange after publicly discussing an encounter with Lynch, where she ordered him not to refer to the criminal probe of Clinton’ handling of classified emails not as an “investigation” but rather as a “matter.” He suggested it smacked of political spin rather than the way professional law enforcement officers talk.
“That concerned me because that language tracked the way the campaign was talking about the FBI’s work and that’s concerning,” Comey testified.
Comey told lawmakers in the close door session that he raised his concern with the attorney general that she had created a conflict of interest by meeting with Clinton’s husband, the former President Bill Clinton, on an airport tarmac while the investigation was ongoing.
During the conversation, Comey told lawmakers he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton.
Comey said “the attorney general looked at the document then looked up with a steely silence that lasted for some time, then asked him if he had any other business with her and if not that he should leave her office,” said one source who was briefed.
Liberal Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein of California has actually called for an investigation into this situation. This is unraveling very fast for Democrats.
FBI Director Clears Hillary Clinton Again in For her Obvious Crimes & Mishandling Top Secret Docs on Private Email Server
I GUESS DEMOCRATS WILL GO BACK TO CALLING FBI DIRECTOR A PATRIOT AND PRINCIPLED, MAN OF REASON … THE FIX HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN.
FBI Director James Comey has once again let Hillary Clinton off the hook for her criminal handling of top secret information in the use of her private email and server. Unbelievably, Comey has let Hillary off the hook again. So the nearly all docs on Weiner’s laptop were duplicates of emails FBI had already seen or were personal. Um, that still does not explain why there were emails on a computer used by Anthony Weiner, aka Carlos Danger. Sadly, the FBI director never had any intention of ever really instigating or indicting Hillary.
What difference does it make if I operated in a criminal manner, did you really think a Democrat administration was going to indict me?
FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers Sunday the agency hasn’t changed its opinion that Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges after a review of new emails.
“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July,” Comey wrote in the new letter to congressional committee chairmen.
Comey dropped a bombshell on the presidential race last month when he sent a letter to Congress saying the FBI had discovered emails in a separate investigation that could be connected to the now-closed probe of whether Clinton mishandled classified information. The move infuriated Democrats and emboldened Republican nominee Donald Trump.
It’s impossible to know before results are tallied what impact Comey’s actions — first raising a vaguely worded red flag 11 days out, and then lowering it two days from the election — will have on the contest. But the news could help Clinton put to rest a controversy that has dogged her in the 2016 race’s closing days, helping Trump narrow a polling gap nationally and in key battleground states.
Trump assailed the FBI’s handling of the matter, though he did not directly address Comey’s announcement at a rally in Sterling Heights, Michigan.
“You can’t review 650,000 new emails in eight days. You can’t do it, folks,” Trump said, adding, “Hillary Clinton is guilty. She knows it, the FBI knows it, the people know it, and now it’s up to the American people to deliver justice at the ballot box on November 8.”
What is obvious from Comey’s decision is that we have a corrupt, corrupt government. As Right Wing News opines, “Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had some tough words for the FBI Director James Comey, claiming he has “caved” to political pressure due to another dismissal of Hillary Clinton, two days away from the election.
Comey proclaimed Sunday afternoon that the bureau would not be pursuing the conclusion in regards to their criminal probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state. In July, Comey declared that he would not suggest charges against Clinton — despite acknowledging that the private server held classified information.
FBI Found 650,000 Emails on a laptop that Belonged to Former Rep. Anthony Weiner & His Estranged Wife and Hillary Clinton Confidant Huma Abedin
So what would cause the FBI director James Comey to send a letter to Congress to amend his Hillary Clinton email scandal testimony? How about 650,000 emails found on a lap tap that was used by both Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife and Hillary Clinton confidant. Not 65 emails. not 650, not 6,500, not 65,000 … but 650,000 emails!!! Are you kidding me? As stated at Legal Insurrection, Abedin is saying she has no idea how those emails got on the co-owned computer, and considering that saying otherwise would reveal a crime. Really? I guess her attorneys have informed her the penalty for perjury and obstruction of justice. Sorry America, you don’t just misplace this many emails and forget to hand over the device to the FBI when they ordered it.
The surprise disclosure that agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation are taking a new look at Hillary Clinton’s email use lays bare, just days before the election, tensions inside the bureau and the Justice Department over how to investigate the Democratic presidential nominee.
Investigators found 650,000 emails on a laptop that they believe was used by former Rep. Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife Huma Abedin, a close Clinton aide, and underlying metadata suggests thousands of those messages could have been sent to or from the private server that Mrs. Clinton used while she was secretary of state, according to people familiar with the matter.
It will take weeks, at a minimum, to determine whether those messages are work-related from the time Ms. Abedin served with Mrs. Clinton at the State Department; how many are duplicates of emails already reviewed by the FBI; and whether they include either classified information or important new evidence in the Clinton email probe.
Officials had to await a court order to begin reviewing the emails—which they received over the weekend, according to a person familiar with the matter—because they were uncovered in an unrelated probe of Mr. Weiner.
The new investigative effort, disclosed by FBI Director James Comey on Friday, shows a bureau at times in sharp internal disagreement over matters related to the Clintons, and how to handle those matters fairly and carefully in the middle of a national election campaign. Even as the probe of Mrs. Clinton’s email use wound down in July, internal disagreements within the bureau and the Justice Department surrounding the Clintons’ family philanthropy heated up, according to people familiar with the matter.
Wow, just wow!!! The Democrats and Hillary Clinton are crying foul for this so-called unprecedented action by Comey. Maybe the real unprecedented action is the willful, wanted and corruption by Hillary Clinton and her private email server and the lengths she went to cover her crimes up?
UPDATE I: Poll – Over a Third of Likely Voters Less Willing to Back Hillary Clinton After FBI Bombshell.
A poll released Sunday shows more than 30 percent of likely voters say they are less inclined to support Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after the FBI announced Friday the agency is reviewing newly-discovered emails potentially related to Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.
The ABC/Washington Post tracking poll was conducted from Tuesday to Friday, which means the survey’s 1,781 respondents could only be asked on the final day about the revelations regarding the new emails.
Watergate’s Carl Bernstein Says FBI Would Not Reopen Case Unless New Evidence Was “A Real Bombshell”
Carl Bernstein of ‘Watergate’ fame says the Director of the FBI, Comey would not reopen the Hillary Clinton private email server case unless the new evidence was “a real bombshell.”
CARL BERNSTEIN: Well, there’s no question that the e-mails have always been the greatest threat to her candidacy for president, that her conduct in regard to the e-mails is really indefensible and if there was going to be more information that came out, it was the one thing, as I said on the air last night, actually that could really perhaps affect this election.
We don’t know what this means yet except that it’s a real bombshell. And it is unthinkable that the Director of the FBI would take this action lightly, that he would put this letter forth to the Congress of the United States saying there is more information out there about classified e-mails and call it to the attention of congress unless it was something requiring serious investigation. So that’s where we are…
Is it a certainty that we won’t learn before the election? I’m not sure it’s a certainty we won’t learn before the election.
One thing is, it’s possible that Hillary Clinton might want to on her own initiative talk to the FBI and find out what she can, and if she chooses to let the American people know what she thinks or knows is going on. People need to hear from her…
I think if she has information available to her from the FBI or any other source as to her knowledge of what these e-mails might be, hopefully she will let us know what they are and what is under discussion here.
Right now we’re all talking in a vacuum but I want to add here that in the last, oh, 36, 48 hours, there has been an undercurrent of kind of speculative discussion among some national security people that something might surface in the next few days about e-mails, and I think the expectation in this chatter — and I took it as just chatter but informed chatter, to some extent — was that it would relate to another round of WikiLeaks e-mails, which our Justice Department people seem to be saying is not the case, but there has been some noise in the national security community the last day or two of this kind of possibility of some kind of revelation.
But this is her achilles heel and we have to remember that it also comes on the — back to the word heel — of the revelations about the Clinton Foundation. So the confluence of all of this is bad for her as it stands now but with some knowledge she might be able to stop, turn things around, and give us some idea of what’s going on in a way we might not otherwise know, and also it’s very possible that some members of congress very quickly are going to get an idea of what these e-mails are, and what this is all about, and for whatever purpose put some information out there.
