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.

Massive Lines of Deplorables Await President Trump in Nashville, TN … The Lines Went on For Miles!!! (VIDEO)

TENNESSEE, THE VOLUNTEER STATE IS TRUMP COUNTRY!!!

The people lined up to await President Donald Trump, some for 10 hours, and the lines grew and grew and grew. It was easily the longest line of “deplorables” I have ever seen. When I arrived at the State House and parked I could not believe what I was seeing. The line was most likely over a mile long. People kept coming and coming and coming to the point where it had to be over 2 miles stretching through the streets of Nashville to The Municipal Auditorium. Pictures and videos are worth a thousand words, in this case well over 10,000 people.

Just to get some perspective, at the 1:00 mark of the video above you can see the State House in the background. At 3:45 PM Nashville time, the line of people was in front of that in the parking lots and stretching back another 1/2 mile.

Rachel Maddow’s Big Trump Tax Scoop … Donald Trump Paid A lot in Taxes in 2005 … But a Greater Percentage Than Obama and Bernie Sanders

ARE YOU KIDDING ME … I FELT LIKE I WAS WATCHING GERALDO RIVERA OPEN AL CAPONE’S VAULT.

Last night on MSNBC, Rachel Maddow claimed in having Trump’s tax returns to have the biggest scoop since, hmm, since, well nothing. In their effort to attack, embarrass and continually go after President Donald J. Trump, the LEFT has embarrassed themselves. Thank You Rachel Maddow for this over-hypes “Nothing Burger.”  In fact, Rachel Maddow has proves some Democrat and Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign lies that Trump paid no taxes. WRONG, he paid $38 million and an effective tax rate of 25%. Thank you again Racel Maddow, you know who paid less than Trump … why that would be the darlings of the LEFT, Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders.

And much like Geraldo back in the day with his live TV reveal of the contents of Al Copone’s vault, Maddow’s was a similar career suicidal event on live TV. Maybe worse, because she knew what was in the vault tax returns.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow spent hours touting a massive scoop: She — or more accurately, veteran investigative reporter David Cay Johnston — had gotten her hands on President Trump’s 2005 federal tax return.

That return, the political universe speculated, might hold the key to unlocking the single biggest mystery surrounding Trump: His financial affairs. After all, this is a president who broke with decades of tradition by refusing to release his tax returns — any of them — during the 2016 campaign, insisting that he was under audit.

The return wasn’t the key. Not even close. (That it took Maddow more than 20 minutes into her show to get to the numbers meant that she was scooped on her own scoop.)

First, the basics: Trump made more than $150 million in 2005 and paid $38 million in taxes that year, according to the two-page summary materials mailed to Johnston this week.

Now, the history: Trump has repeatedly said that he did everything he could to pay as little tax as possible — a position, he insisted, that not only made him smart but also one that lots and lots of voters seemed to agree with. “I fight very hard to pay as little tax as possible,” Trump told ABC in May 2016.

Deranged LEFT Obsesses Over Trump Taxes … MSNBC Says They Have Trump’s Tax Return

MSNBC OVER HYPES THEY HAVE TRUMP TAX RETURN FROM OVER A DECADE AGO …

Its exactly this type of investigative journalism that has MSNBC with less viewers than blogs do readers. In an effort to embarrass and destroy President Donald Trump, they instead have unwittingly helped him. Trump’s 2005 tax returns showed he made a lot of money. We already knew that, Trump is a successful business man. The 2005 return also shows that he paid a lot of taxes, $38 million to be exact.

EPIC BACKFIRE!!!

Maddow Trump taxes

The White House said on Tuesday that President Donald Trump paid $38 million in federal income taxes in 2005 — on $150 million in earnings — offering a small glimpse at the president’s personal finances, which Trump has so far kept almost entirely private.

The administration offered those details in a statement after journalist David Cay Johnston published two pages of tax information about the president, apparently from Trump’s 2005 return. The revelations were simultaneously broadcast on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow” show, which included an interview with Johnston. Based on the information on the two pages, Trump paid an effective tax rate of about 25 percent.

If MSNBC wanted to do real investigative journalism, maybe they might want to discover how a private citizen’s tax return was illegal gotten?
