The attempt at scandal creation by the Democrats is not working out the way they had hoped.
You know the story – the Russians meddled with the presidential election on Mr. Trump’s behalf, so we are asked to believe.
After all, there had to be a reason other than Hillary herself for her shocking loss to Donald Trump.
And of course, Hillary and the rest of the Crooked Clintons never had anything to do with Russia…oh no, nothing at all. Except the amount of evidence we have to the contrary is just staggering.
At any rate, “the Russians did it” has been the Democrat rallying cry for months.
Now, the wiretapping scandal.
You would’ve thought the Watergate scandal that devastated the Nixon administration would have taught politicians a lesson about wiretaps. Apparently not. They did it again and once again, the proof is mounting at an alarming pace.
The “court” that President Trump referred to in his well-documented Tweets accusing the Obama administration of wiretapping is the FISA Court (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act), and here is its job:
“Pursuant to FISA, the Court entertains applications submitted by the United States Government for approval of electronic surveillance, physical search, and other investigative actions for foreign intelligence purposes.”
In its attempt to create a connection between President Trump and the Russians, it would appear that the Obama administration decided that tapping his phones at the Trump Tower would be a good idea.
STORY CONTINUES BELOW…
It wasn’t, partly because the attorney general must sign off on all applications to the FISA Court, hence leaving a paper trail. And guess what?
SHE DID. Per The Gateway Pundit:
“…all applications to the FISA Court were signed off on by the Attorney General and therefore if any applications were processed in the past year, they were signed off on by Loretta Lynch. This means that Lynch signed off on any requests for wire tapping President Donald Trump during the Presidential race.“
If you’d like to see hypocrisy in action, take note of this:
“This also means that she [Lynch] chose not to investigate the Clinton Foundation for illegal activities but rather signed an application to wire tap President Trump.“
The eventual fallout from what is starting to be called “Obamagate” remains to be seen. But we all knew he had to have some inside help to push this through, right?
We can be very sure that this scandal is not something Mr. Obama wanted to add to his already pitiful legacy.
And he can try operating his “shadow government” behind the scenes all he wants; Trump is in charge and that’s how it will remain. Sorry, liberals.
