It’s scary to think that our very own and former President Barack Obama, was behind any alleged “wiretapping” or misdoings related to our current President Trump. What does that say about our former POTUS? This just goes to show you how far, Democrats and Obama are willing to go to tear down President Trump. Pretty sad if you ask me.
Now a former senior intelligence officer, retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer believes this alleged incident is on the same scale or bigger than Nixon’s Watergate scandal. How crazy is that? Can you image if President Obama became the first former president with a felony indictment? Unbelievable!
President Donald Trump flipped the media and political world, as well as the “Russian collusion” narrative, on their collective heads over the weekend with a series of tweets alleging former President Barack Obama’s administration had wiretapped and spied on him and his associates in Trump Tower during the 2016 election season, perhaps illegally.
While there of course has been substantial pushback against the extreme accusation by both the media and Obama’s people, there does seem to be some circumstantial evidence that Trump’s allegations were correct — at least more than any proving Trump was somehow colluding with the Russian government.
If indeed it does turn out to be the case that the Obama administration illegally surveilled Trump’s team ahead of Election Day as some have speculated, the end result could be the unprecedented indictment of a former president on felony charges.
So a highly respected former senior intelligence officer, retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, told Conservative Tribune sister company USA Radio Network’s Rusty Humphries on “Trending Today USA” Monday morning.
Calling the alleged incident an “order of magnitude” bigger than the Watergate scandal, Shaffer stated that the incident would have included “using nation-state resources for purposes of political gain.”
Humphries asked if, should everything turn out to be true, Obama would be arrested and held accountable for violating the laws.
“This could be the first time a former president could be indicted for a felony,” Shaffer answered. “Because I think it is very possible that he acted outside of the scope of his duties, responsibilities and authorities to turn the resources of a nation-state on a candidate.”
“This is, as I’ve said before, soviet-dictator level wrongdoing,” he added.
Shaffer also noted that, given Obama’s use of government resources to conduct other spying operations, it was easy to imagine him doing the same against Trump, particularly while working under the assumption that Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton would easily win the general election and keep the subterfuge against Trump under wraps.
Here was a clip of Lt. Col. Shaffer on Fox News:
Although until there is clear evidence and an investigation into the matter, it is mostly speculation. However, given Shaffer’s background, military career and his role as a senior fellow at the prestigious London Center for Policy Research, his speculation carries more weight than most of the drive-by MSM and all the other liberal Democrats crying “foul”.
In addition, to Shaffer’s analysis, Conservative radio talk show host, Mark Levin believes the “evidence is overwhelming“. He stated that the FBI applied for, sought and was granted a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court order. Levin also believes there’s no way that the FBI and 5 other agencies could have been involved in a collaborated investigation over several months WITHOUT Barack Obama knowing about it. There are such things called “daily intelligence briefings” and someone needs to follow the paper trail.
Of course, since the Democrats “set up” AG Sessions to begin with, so he would then recuse himself from the “Russian” investigation, there should be a recessed appointed Deputy Attorney General.
This is like watching a game of chess, except it’s the Obama/Democrats vs. Trump/Conservatives/Republicans and we are talking about a past sitting president spying on a candidate he was against. This is AMERICA! How insane is that?!
Now, liberal Democrats like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Elizabeth Warren are “crying foul.” Of course they are. They’re trying to look like they’re standing up for the “good guys” when in fact, they are actually part of the low-life scum that Trump is trying to drain from the swamp. These same Democrats are just part of the coverup for the Obama/Democrat team.
In addition, Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal is now calling for an independent special prosecutor before he will even approve of any Trump AG nominee, like Rod Rosenstein. UNBELIEVABLE!
Lt. Col. Shaffer and Mark Levin, “The Great One” are right. We, the people, and America can NOT allow a former sitting president to spy on a candidate just because he doesn’t like him or doesn’t support him. There needs to be an investigation into the matter. And why would FBI Director Comey go against Trump? Wouldn’t he have known about a previous investigation of Trump and 4 members of Trump’s team especially if there was a FISA court order involved? Wouldn’t he have also been a part of the “daily intelligence breifing” to then President Obama?
Something just doesn’t sit right here! It’s time to “follow the money”.
If you ask me the sewer is about to be drained and the evidence of real scum is starting to show more clearly each and every day.
