Abandoning Obama: Leftists Say ‘There goes the neighborhood’
Big trouble looms for the Left, and particularly Barack Obama.
No longer can Obama feign innocence when it comes to targeting Donald Trump with all the resources of the federal government.
What confidence Obama and his team of criminals must have had that Donald Trump would never see the inside of the Oval Office. Thus, they never expected to have to answer for their crimes. And the erupting firestorm caught them by surprise.
We now know from the FISA memo, that the FBI worked in conjunction with Hillary Clinton. Was this Obama’s payback for the help the Clintons gave him in getting elected twice? Likely. But undoubtedly this scandal now leads back to Obama. Boy Blunder.
Sharyl Attkisson writes to explain the process of getting a FISA warrant:
There are strict rules requiring that each and every fact presented in an FBI request to electronically spy on a U.S. citizen be extreme-vetted for accuracy — and presented to the court only if verified.
There’s no dispute that at least some, if not a great deal, of information in the anti-Trump “Steele dossier” was unverified or false. Former FBI director James Comey testified as much himself before a Senate committee in June 2017. Comey repeatedly referred to “salacious” and “unverified” material in the dossier, which turned out to be paid political opposition research against Donald Trump funded first by Republicans, then by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Presentation of any such unverified material to the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to justify a wiretap would appear to violate crucial procedural rules, called “Woods Procedures,” designed to protect U.S. citizens.
Not only are there extreme vetting processes to go through to get a FISA warrant but there are procedural rules in place to keep others from abusing such warrants. Obama blatantly disregarded those processes.
In short, this is one of those technicalities that Obama can’t weasel out of. After all, unlike Hillary Clinton who had the full support of a criminal FBI at her disposal, Obama won’t be able to have agents change wording to suit his case.
The articles continues:
Woods Procedures were named for Michael Woods, the FBI official who drafted the rules as head of the Office of General Counsel’s National Security Law Unit. They were instituted in April 2001 to “ensure accuracy with regard to … the facts supporting probable cause” after recurring instances, presumably inadvertent, in which the FBI had presented inaccurate information to the FISA court.
Prior to Woods Procedures, “[i]ncorrect information was repeated in subsequent and related FISA packages,” the FBI told Congress in August 2003. “By signing and swearing to the declaration, the headquarters agent is attesting to knowledge of what is contained in the declaration.”
These are crucial and serious protocols set in place to protect American citizens.
So, how then did the Obama administration manage to bypass extreme vetting and Wood procedure rules? Wouldn’t there be someone in the FISA court who would see such alarming illegal activity?
In a not so surprising twist the majority of all the FISA court judges were appointed by Obama during his presidency. Therefore, they were at Obama’s command.
The Court sits in Washington D.C., and is composed of eleven federal district court judges who are designated by the Chief Justice of the United States. Each judge serves for a maximum of seven years and their terms are staggered to ensure continuity on the Court. In addition, the entire FISA court in late 2016 was stacked with judges appointed during Obama’s time in office. Two judges were also Obama appointees named Contreras and Boasberg.
Obama had judges willing to do his dirty work. They authorized the unmasking and spying on Americans whenever he beckoned.
So, in addition to having the FISA court swayed in Obama and Hillary’s favor they both had the help from Leftist plant James Comey and the FBI to cover it all up.
And they wonder why President Trump fired Comey? A man with no law-enforcement experience.
Obama didn’t need Comey to have experience; he needed a minion. When the Obama administration criminals finally realized Trump would win the presidency, Comey’s job included using Obama’s appointed FISA court judges to INTENTIONALLY violate protocol to target Trump to try and take him down .
COMEY IS THE CENTRAL FIGURE IN THE SCHEME TO TAKE DOWN TRUMP. The surveillance of the Trump campaign is continued after he is elected, all participants are “unmasked” illegally, and the transcripts are leaked throughout the government and to the media. When General Flynn appropriately calls Russian officials on behalf of Trump, they brush off the old fake “dossier” and all of the surveillance of the campaign, and Comey creates the “Russian Conspiracy” investigation.
Comey (or his minions) constantly leak news of the “Russia Investigation” to the media, and the media does its scripted part by screaming constantly about “Russia.” The Democrats fill their role and constantly scream about “Russia.” McCain and the RINO establishment do their part by promising to “investigate” how the Russians influenced the campaign.
In the coming months Americans will learn even more about this scheme by the Leftists to thwart the electoral process, and crush innocent people.
If they can do this to a billionaire mogul, imagine what they can do to everyday Joe America.
And that’s why Democrats have begun abandoning their party. The black former president is a cheater.
With new lenses in which to view Obama, many former Democrats look back at his record and see it for what it is. Dismal, to say the least.
The media won’t report it, but the polls will show what’s happening as people continue to side with Trump. Try to envision meetings with Democrats, as they analyze their position, and plot their next moves. I wouldn’t want to be a Democrat today. As their investment in Obama, just went belly up.
