Obama Spying Results: Donald Trump is Squeaky Clean
Finally, we’ve learned something from all the allegations of election tampering with Russians. Donald Trump is cleaner than an operating room floor.
The Left accused Trump of tax evasion, and most of us remember the painful broadcast by Rachel Maddow. Ironically, Maddow was forced to reveal how much Trump had paid in taxes, and his taxes were huge.
And that was only the beginning. Trump was supposed to have massive connections to Russia. And the Left has performed an alien autopsy on the man only to find absolutely nothing.
And look at the lengths to which they have gone as reported, by Front Page.

Now the latest CNN spin piece informs us that secret FISA orders were used to spy on the conversations of Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort. The surveillance was discontinued for lack of evidence and then renewed under a new warrant. This is part of a pattern of FISA abuses by Obama Inc. which never allowed minor matters like lack of evidence to dissuade them from new FISA requests.
Desperate Obama cronies had figured out that they could bypass many of the limitations on the conventional investigations of their political opponents by ‘laundering’ them through national security.
If any of Trump’s people were talking to non-Americans, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) could be used to spy on them. And then the redacted names of the Americans could be unmasked by Susan Rice, Samantha Power and other Obama allies. It was a technically legal Watergate.
If both CNN stories hold up, then Obama Inc. had spied on two Trump campaign leaders.
Make no mistake about it, when Obama promised Trump he would never be president, he meant it.
However, Obama came up with nothing. So the Left shifted tactics.
Furthermore the Obama espionage operation closely tracked Trump’s political progress. The first FISA request targeting Trump happened the month after he received the GOP nomination. The second one came through in October: the traditional month of political surprises meant to upend an election.
The spying ramped up after Trump’s win when the results could no longer be used to engineer a Hillary victory, but would instead have to be used to cripple and bring down President Trump. Headed out the door, Rice was still unmasking the names of Trump’s people while Obama was making it easier to pass around raw eavesdropped data to other agencies.
Obama had switched from spying on a political opponent to win an election, to spying on his successor to undo the results of the election. Abuse of power by a sitting government had become subversion of the government by an outgoing administration. Domestic spying on opponents had become a coup.
The Democrat scandals of the past few administrations have hinged on gross violations of political norms, elementary ethics and the rule of law that, out of context, were not technically illegal.
But it’s the pattern that makes the crime. It’s the context that shows the motive.
Only a moron would not see this for what it is: specific targeting of a private citizen in order to…INFLUENCE AN ELECTION!
If Mueller had any scruples, this investigation would have ended when it started. And almost the entire Obama administration would be behind bars.
As Daniel Greenfield wrote,
Obama Inc. compartmentalized its espionage operation in individual acts of surveillance and unmasking, and general policies implemented to aid both, that may have been individually legal, in the purely technical sense, in order to commit the major crime of eavesdropping on the political opposition.
But why bother looking for the truth that’s right before your eyes, when there are Russians?
I’m sure President Trump enjoys watching the headless chickens in the barnyard. But the rest of America would like to see justice. Regardless, what the country knows is we have a squeaky clean president, politically speaking.
