Bachmann also stated Trump’s advisers were “solid as a rock” when it comes to upholding orthodox Christian values.
On Monday, the former lawmaker — who chose to step down in 2015 — echoed Trump’s Twitter complaints that the media should be covering the surveillance and not the Trump-Russia connection.
H/T Western Journalism:
Bachman was responding Monday to multiple reports that former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice sought the unmasking of dozens of individuals associated with the Trump campaign and transition team, dating back to at least last summer.
“This is a thousand times worse than Watergate,” Bachmann told USA Radio host Rusty Humphries. “This is the only thing the press should be talking about for the next month.”
Bachmann, who served on the House Select Committee on Intelligence, added, “This is against the law. What the Obama administration did is surveil Americans citizens for political purposes to hurt the Trump campaign politically.”
“This is how bold, and how lawless the Obama administration was,” the former congresswoman said.
Bachmann believes the likely reason Hillary Clinton (and presumably other Democrats) have been “throwing around the fake news story that Trump was colluding with Russia was to throw off the scent” of what the Obama administration was up to.
“I think most Americans haven’t even heard of this story yet, but this makes Watergate pale,” she stated. “Remember we had a president of the United States resign over Watergate.”
Bachmann contended that “high officials in the Obama administration” may well be going to jail.
Bachmann claimed that God “lifted up” Donald Trump to defeat Hillary Clinton and save the country from Marxism and radical Islamism. She also warned us for years about radical Islam, but many people just didn’t want to believe her.
Bachmann was right about radical Islamic terrorism. She was right about Obama and she’s right about Susan Rice. This IS a BIG story whether the MSM wants to talk about it or not! It’s BIGGER than Watergate and someone should go to jail!
