Did Obama wiretap Romney in 2012?

Press coverage of the Obama administration wiretapping a political opponent shows that America no longer has a free press. Instead, Social Justice Warriors with bylines push the statist party agenda with a passion that would make Pravda editors blush.

President Trump -- the victim -- is viewed as the villain.
ABC claimed President Trump breeched security by complaining about being wiretapped.

From ABC News:
In tweeting accusations that former President Barack Obama ordered surveillance of his campaign, President Donald Trump potentially made public the existence of Top Secret wiretaps – a move that would be a federal crime, if performed by anyone other than the commander-in-chief.
Trump’s stunning allegation came in an early morning tweetstorm, in which he wrote in part: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory.”
Because the sitting president offered no evidence to back up his claim, it wasn’t clear whether the tweet – which was followed by four others taking on his predecessor, including one misspelling the word “tap” – was based on classified knowledge he received in his capacity as president, or on an article posted yesterday to the conservative Breitbart website.
It also isn't known whether such federal wiretaps actually existed.
The whore was asking to be gang-raped by walking to Sunday School.

But how can he breech security, ABC News, if no wiretaps exist?

Actually, it is known and has been known since before the inauguration.

From the New York Times on January 19:
Intercepted Russian Communications Part of Inquiry Into Trump Associates
How do you intercept "Russian communications" without a bug?

From that January 19 story:
The F.B.I. is leading the investigations, aided by the National Security Agency, the C.I.A. and the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in recent weeks but have found no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, the officials said. One official said intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House.
Now we know why they were so desperately seeking evidence -- "accelerated their efforts."

They had to justify a wiretap warrant delivered weeks before the election which allowed the Obama administration to wiretap Trump Tower.

This is The Mother Of All October Surprises.

And the Baghdad Bobs of the press ignore it.

Remember the Obama administration went after James Rosen of Fox News, and tapped the phones of the Associated Press, so this is par for the course.

But the press stands by their man.

Ignoring their earlier report on the FBI intercepting Russian communications, the staff of the New York Times wrote:
The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, asked the Justice Department this weekend to publicly reject President Trump’s assertion that President Barack Obama ordered the tapping of Mr. Trump’s phones, senior American officials said on Sunday. Mr. Comey has argued that the highly charged claim is false and must be corrected, they said, but the department has not released any such statement.
I am losing track. Is Comey a heel like he was in October when he sent Congress a letter on Hillary again, or a hero again like he was in July when he refused to recommend indicting her?

Then there is James Claper, who perjured himself when he told Congress the Obama administration did not engage in domestic spying.

From NBC News:
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on Sunday denied any suggestion that Trump Tower communications were wiretapped before the election.
For the part of the national security apparatus that he oversaw, "there was no such wiretap activity mounted against the president, the president-elect at the time, or as a candidate, or against his campaign," Clapper told Chuck Todd in an exclusive interview on Sunday's "Meet The Press."
Perjury? What perjury?

Of course if there were no wiretaps, then why did the Obama administration bother getting a FISA warrants?

The press is making no damned sense at all as it tries to deny a reality that looms larger by the news cycle:
The Obama administration wiretapped the opposition.
As Roger L. Simon put it:
Would an attorney general (in this case Loretta Lynch) normally inform the White House of a decision to go to a FISA court for approval of the tapping of a political presidential opponent? Did Ms. Lynch so inform the White House? Was there any discussion of this decision between the WH and the DOJ? Why did the Justice Department decide to go back to the FISA court in October for a second try at approval? Whose idea was that? Did they did have additional information? What was that? Was Trump's name included in the brief the first time but omitted in the second? Why? If none of this happened, who made it up and why? That makes no sense, considering how easy it would be to disprove. Unless, of course, although it's not supposed to happen, the NSA just regularly taps everything and everybody, including presidential candidates, the president elect, and the president himself. But why then on Jan. 12 of this year, again according to the New York Times, did the Obama administration suddenly broadly extend the powers of the NSA?
I could go on, but you get the point.  The possibilities here are endless. And WikiLeaks already revealed Obama's extensive use of wiretaps.  It's a long list.  Nothing particularly new here except this one, if it happened, was aimed at his most important adversary in our democratic republic, threatening the very underpinnings of our country and making Nixon seem like an amateur.  No doubt the Democrats will hide behind national security, but that can only go on for so long.  People in leadership positions like Sen. Cotton are entitled to the facts -- and they will get them eventually, perhaps quickly since this is a Trump administration finally, even if so many appointments are being held up.  Also -- and this is what the sleaze-artists like Schumer and my own Rep. Adam Schiff know well -- Trump has obviously been wiretapped up the you-know-what, probably from numerous sources.  If not, where have all these leaks come from?  Mars?
We know the answers.

This is Watergate on Steroids.

The only real question is, did Obama wiretap Romney in 2012?

Check the FISA records, President Trump.

  1. Darn Fake Media - this is from the very liberal-Obama-loving Fox News today:

    "Trump has provided no evidence that Trump Tower was wiretapped during the presidential election. Sources told Fox News that senior federal law enforcement officials were thrown off by the tweets.

    "Those sources said that the officials in question had no idea what Trump was talking about when the president made the allegation on social media Saturday morning. The sources also told Fox that Trump did not consult with senior officials who would have been advised of any such wiretapping operations before posting the messages."

    1. Read the post carefully this time. See the word "Wiretapped" in the headline? That's in The New York Times on Inauguration Day.

    2. And your point is ...? Article and headline have NOTHING to do with a wire-tapping of Trump's phone(s) in Trump Tower. Good try.
      Today, not one single WH official has provided any proof to substantiate Trump's weekend tweet accusation.

    4. Please, read the NYT article again. In it, there is ZERO mention of any wire-tapping of Donald Trump at any time or any wire-tapping of his phones at Trump Tower per his tweet accusation.
      So you think Trump's tweets are 100 percent based on a single NYT headline? Sad.

    5. "How do you intercept "Russian communications" without a bug?"

      Easy. You listen to a cell phone conversation via a Stinger or other similar technology. That's not a "wire tap" in the conventional sense or listening in on a land line conversation.

      As for the January 19 NYT article, it does not mention anything about wire taps on Trump or his aides. It mentions only "intercepted communications" for the Russian officials, which is not the same as eavesdropping on Trump's calls or those of his aides.

      I don't have access to the January 20 NYT article, which is the ONLY one that mentions wire taps. in any case, if anyone violated the law by revealing the existence of such wire taps that MAY have existed, it was the anonymous government sources who leaked the information to the NYT for their January 20 front page article. ABC should be going after the NYT sources. Who are these law breakers, ABC?

  3. Snowden said that the thing that drove him over the edge was watching Obama CIA appointee Clapper blatantly lying to Ron Wyden about whether domestic surveillance was taking place.
    Now we are expected to believe this lying sack of excrement when it comes to whether or not a single private citizen was being spied on?
    The newspapers of record are liars, too. They've spent the past year or so reporting stories based on leaks from insiders who have acknowledged that they got their information from wiretaps and now they expect us to believe that those same wiretaps that were the sources of those stories never existed?

    Who are these senior American officials? I'd be willing to place a bet it was Comey himself.

    1. We all wonder if Comey was trying to somehow cop a walk in the closing days of the election.

      Dunno about others, but I'm not wondering anymore.

  8. President Trump would know if he was being monitored by the very fact that words he spoke in confidence over the phone all of a sudden appeared in the news.

  9. So apparently CNN has a high powered scope and telephoto lens trained on one of the windows of the Oval Office and can see things that are going on in there. And while CNN may not have it, technology exists to eavesdrop on conversations taking place in a room by recording the subtle vibrations of the glass in its windows. Or you can hire someone who can read lips. Either way, if CNN is doing it, so are the Russians. Astonishing. This security leak was supposed to be fixed by the Secrete Service during Obama's second term, but he refused to let them do it because it meant he'd have to abandon the Oval Office and move temporarily to the Executive Office Building. He wanted them to wait until after he'd left office so his successor would have to move. Apparently an exact duplicate of the Oval Office was constructed within the EOB in preparation for the security upgrades but it has not been used.
