Did the Obama Administration Spy on the Trump campaign? He claims they did, early on, in his victorious bid to become the 45th President of the United States!
“Well, well, well. The bipartisan Beltway establishment has apparently had its fill of this “Trump colluded with Russia” narrative — the same narrative the same establishment has lustily peddled for nearly two years. The Obama administration recklessly chose to deploy the government’s awesome counterintelligence powers to investigate — and, more to the point, to smear — its political opposition as a Kremlin confederate. Now that this ploy has blown up on the Justice Department and the FBI, these agencies — the ones that went out of their way, and outside their guidelines, to announce to the world that the Trump campaign was under investigation — want you to know the president and his campaign were not investigated at all, no siree.” writes ANDREW C. MCCARTHY in Yes, the FBI Was Investigating the Trump Campaign When It Spied, at the National Review
“Within hours of opening an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in the summer of 2016, the F.B.I. dispatched a pair of agents to London on a mission so secretive that all but a handful of officials were kept in the dark.
Their assignment, which has not been previously reported, was to meet the Australian ambassador, who had evidence that one of Donald J. Trump’s advisers knew in advance about Russian election meddling. After tense deliberations between Washington and Canberra, top Australian officials broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed the ambassador, Alexander Downer, to sit for an F.B.I. interview to describe his meeting with the campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos.” ~ Published by The New York Times in Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation
It Continues “Agents considered, then rejected, interviewing key Trump associates, which might have sped up the investigation but risked revealing the existence of the case. Top officials quickly became convinced that they would not solve the case before Election Day, which made them only more hesitant to act. When agents did take bold investigative steps, like interviewing the ambassador, they were shrouded in secrecy.
Fearful of leaks, they kept details from political appointees across the street at the Justice Department. Peter Strzok, a senior F.B.I. agent explained in a text that Justice Department officials would find it too “tasty” to resist sharing. “I’m not worried about our side,” he wrote.
Only about five Justice Department officials knew the full scope of the case, officials said, not the dozen or more who might normally be briefed on a major national security case.”
AGAIN IF IT WAS SO TOP SECRET HOW DID HILLARY KNOW?
There is more (why give the NYT another click): “The facts, had they surfaced, might have devastated the Trump campaign: Mr. Trump’s future national security adviser was under investigation, as was his campaign chairman. One adviser appeared to have Russian intelligence contacts. Another was suspected of being a Russian agent himself.”
This all seems to show Chuck Schumer’s tweet at the Top and, lying, James Clapper doing what they do the best LYING TO WE THE PEOPLE!!!
They have lied so many times they just can no longer keep their story straight. They were Indeed SPYING ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN!! If “Only about five Justice Department officials knew the full scope of the case, officials said, not the dozen or more who might normally be briefed on a major national security case.” How Did Hillary know and doesn’t her statement of 16 to 17 different agencies seem strange?
This is a proven group of liars by history that they would hope you forget!!
The lies are hard to keep straight. I think a FULL DISCLOSURE OF ALL THE FACTS IS DUE TO WE THE PEOPLE. Instead, we have a media that would rather continue in their corrupt reporting and spin for those who committed the crime!!
There is something very wrong with this whole situation. The DOJ and FBI fight to keep their secrets from coming to light. The media distracts you as much as possible and spins the truth. Those telling the truth are then called FAKE NEWS by the media!! The only hope America has is to unite for the TRUTH no matter who it hurts!!!! Only this will wash clean the web of lies that have been spun by traitors at the Highest Level of Government and their continuing treason through the RESIST movement!!
When did Obama know?
“”I feel like we sort of choked.” That is the killer quote in an extraordinary Washington Post investigation into how Barack Obama responded to intelligence last year that Russia was running a sophisticated influence operation against the 2016 elections.” reported Bloomberg in Obama Choked on Russia Long Before the 2016 Election
Obama was the commander-in-chief when Moscow hatched this operation. It was his duty to defend our election. He Failed? Would these reports matter? The article concludes with “All of this is the context of Putin’s decision to boldly interfere in the 2016 U.S. elections. Perhaps Putin would have authorized the operation even if Obama had responded more robustly to Russia’s earlier dirty tricks and foreign adventures. But it’s easy to understand why Putin would believe he had a free shot. Russia probed American resolve for years. When Obama finally did respond, it was too late to save Ukraine and too late to protect our election.”
Obama is responsible for the Russian actions, not Donald Trump the FBI did not include him, but somehow Hillary knew of the TOP SECRET INVESTIGATION. Like she always did with classified Info she was careless and told everyone for political gain!!
The Next Questions Is When Did Facebook Know?
This is a hard question to answer. When I researched it there is no timeline of when they found out. Those would be some more interesting documents to read. I have tried to place 2 adds so far and both have been rejected. How did all of these accounts slip by the mighty algorithm? I have been banned over and over for Conservative views and know many in the same boat. Did Facebook suppress Conservatives during the elections and promote the Russians as part of a conspiracy? How could they not catch these accounts but ban thousands of American accounts?
This is from CNN Published on 09/07/2017 Facebook’s Russia problem: What we know
They don’t know much because Facebook guards it’s secrets while selling its users secrets!! “Facebook says it found “roughly” 3,000 ads connected to 470 fake accounts and Facebook Pages. It was a mix of traditional ads and sponsored articles focused on divisive subjects for U.S. voters, including immigration, gun rights and LGBT issues.(Facebook also found another 2,200 ads “that might have originated in Russia” but had “very weak signals of a connection and not associated with any known organized effort.”)”
“Facebook (revealed that it sold approximately $100,000 worth of ads during the presidential election cycle from inauthentic accounts and pages “likely operated out of Russia.”)
How did they miss all of that and bring the hammer down on Conservatives? Seems like some explaining is in order. This brings me back to the Top and Chucky boy, Why is he “Threatening” the Free Press with his lies and cover-ups. What is he afraid they will find if they actually did some investigative reporting?
IT IS UP TO THOSE WHO STILL HOLD THE TRUTH DEAR TO SPREAD THE TRUTH!!
What can you do? SHARE, LIKE AND FOLLOW THE TRUTH!! EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH!!! ~RJH
