No one can convince me otherwise, that Obama did NOT know about the “wiretapping” at Trump Tower or anywhere else, for that matter. This has his fingerprints ALL over it. Especially when the first request for a FISA court order just happened to be around the same time Bill Clinton conveniently met with Obama’s AG Loretta Lynch on a tarmac in Phoenix, AZ. What are the odds of that?
The second request was no likely after Hillary Clinton’s numbers were down in the polls following her September 11th incident that involved a video of Clinton’s poor health going viral. Obama and the Democrats probably needed a “hail Mary” and they got one.
But you know the expression, “if you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.” It looks like Obama and the Democrats are gettting caught with their hands in the cookie jar. Are they going to blame THIS on the Russians too? It seems this is their narrative in the MSM for everything else.
H/T Conservative Tribune:
A series of tweets from President Donald Trump on Saturday accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower so he could listen in on Trump’s phone calls. Various legal experts have weighed in on this issue, including Judge Andrew Napolitano, who appeared on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning to discuss the issue.
Napolitano explained that while Obama could legally have had the authority to spy on Trump Tower, revelations that he had actually done so could destroy his entire legacy because the surveillance would have been “for the most base and venal reasons: to tarnish a political opponent.”
“The President of the United States on his own may conduct surveillance or order surveillance of any person in the United States upon the filing of a certification with the Attorney General,” Napolitano explained, but he noted that national security was the only legitimate justification.
“I think the political earthquake would destroy whatever legacy Barack Obama had,” he added.
The judge also explained that he believed Obama did order the wiretapping of Trump Tower, something he called “immoral, profoundly unconstitutional and utterly wrong.”
Napolitano explained that despite the unconstitutionality of such actions, Congress had given every president since Jimmy Carter such authority and that the language was “broad” enough for presidents to abuse their power by monitoring domestic political foes.
Obama’s legacy is already being dismantled bit by bit, thanks to quick action by Trump and Congressional Republicans. However, if it also comes out that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower, that could be a scandal of Watergate proportions at least.
No former President of the United States, should be allowed to spy on a candidate that is running for the office of the presidency or any other office, for that matter. Just because Obama wanted to help the Democratic Party and their candidate, Hillary Clinton, that does NOT give him the right to act like a Soviet dictator.
Like most concerns and complaints regarding the Obama administration and Obama’s recklessness for the law, I doubt Americans will ever hear the ENTIRE truth about the wiretapping. Obama and the Democrats will just say “The Russians DID it!”. With the technology that is in place, it will be easy for THEM to make it LOOK like the Russians did it.
It doesn’t take a crime expert or CSI MIami to figure this one out. On that note….
