Liberals have gotten themselves into a bit of bind.
They wish to use intelligence collected by the government to accuse President Trump of malfeasance…while at the same time denying such intelligence was gathered.
So which was it? You can’t have it both ways.
The attacks on President Trump have gone far beyond the normal resistance one would expect from the opposition party. This assault on his presidency includes actions taken by his predecessor as well the illegal gathering of information on Mr. Trump through wiretaps.
Of course, attacks on President Trump have been made by leading Democrats, and individuals such as George Soros have funded organizations to create havoc at Trump events.
It doesn’t help that the biased mainstream media has an obvious agenda that never seems to stop, no matter how many times it’s exposed. Remember this?
And now, once again, the duplicity of The New York Times is on full display. Via The Lid:
“On January 19th and 20th 2017, The NY Times reported that wiretaps of people on the Trump team were passed along to the Obama White House, one of the story’s authors was Michael S. Schmidt. On Saturday that same Michael S. Schmidt was one of the reporters who wrote the story, ‘Trump, Offering No Evidence, Says Obama Tapped His Phones.'”
On the one hand Schmidt reported there is no evidence of Obama tapping Mr. Trump’s phones, but earlier reported that the results of wiretaps of Mr. Trump and his team, “were passed on to the Obama White House.”
Someone ordered these wiretaps and the Obama White House, and by extension, were the beneficiaries. If they received and used materials they knew were obtained through illegal measures, they’re still on the hook.
STORY CONTINUES BELOW…
Here’s the damning information from The Times:
“The F.B.I. is leading the investigations, aided by the National Security Agency, the C.I.A. and the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in recent weeks but have found no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, the officials said. One official said intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House.”
Hence we have The Times, hardly a bastion of conservative ideology, reporting that the results of wiretaps of Mr. Trump and his team we provided to the Obama White House.
For those of us who remember Watergate, this sound very familiar. Whether Mr. Obama can use some legal maneuvering to avoid personal culpability for this act, it’s clear members of the White House staff accepted and acted information that was gained by wiretapping.
It’s ALSO clear that Obama’s administration is absolutely guilty of spying on other political members of the government.
It is far beyond time to appoint a special prosecutor and for Congress to launch investigations.
