The entire Media-Democratic Party Complex owes President Trump a heartfelt and very public apology.
Of more importance, the Media-Democratic Party Complex needs to finally accept that the American people chose Trump over Clinton without any interference from any foreign government.
It's been nearly six months, buttercup. Accept reality.
On March 3, Andrew McCarthy of National Review reported that the Obama regime wiretapped a server at Trump Tower under a FISA warrant issued in October, after being turned down in June (not July) for a broader FISA warrant to wiretap members of the Trump campaign.
President Trump exploded upon learning the news. CNN spy cameras on the Oval Office captured this but misrepresented (likely unintentional) as Trump lashing out at his inner circle.
The next morning Our Duly Elected President tweeted that "Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!"
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
The Media-Democratic Party Complex attacked Trump -- ignoring its own reporting. "Wiretapped data used in inquiry of Trump aides" read the Front Page story in the New York Times on Inauguration Day. That leak and its publication were coordinated to undermine Trump's inauguration -- an event that was protested by more than 200 Democratic rioters.
To date, no one in the media has demanded that any Democratic Party official apologize for the rioting.
On March 4, I posted, "Obama wire-tapped Trump Tower":
President Trump attacked Barack Obama on Twitter for wiretapping Trump Tower before the election.
A FISA court gave Obama authority to wiretap the tower in October under the guise of national security.
That is chilling and fascist. Obama abused the power of gathering intelligence on terrorists to instead try to throw the 2016 presidential election.
He would have done this no matter whom Republicans nominated. 'Tis the nature of the person.
We have underestimated just how capable of committing evil Obama is.The post continued and it is a good read that has held up in the nearly three weeks since posting.
FISA warrants need the attorney general to sign off. Loretta Lynch was Barack Obama's appointee. He is responsible for her actions.
Just as Nixon was responsible for John Mitchell's.
Since then, the media has ignored this Watergate to the Watergate-power story, with the Wall Street Journal losing its mind today. It lifted its paywall to attack him in an editorial:
The latest example is Mr. Trump’s refusal to back off his Saturday morning tweet of three weeks ago that he had “found out that [Barack] Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory” on Election Day. He has offered no evidence for his claim, and a parade of intelligence officials, senior Republicans and Democrats have since said they have seen no such evidence.
Yet the President clings to his assertion like a drunk to an empty gin bottle, rolling out his press spokesman to make more dubious claims. Sean Spicer — who doesn’t deserve this treatment — was dispatched last week to repeat an assertion by a Fox News commentator that perhaps the Obama Administration had subcontracted the wiretap to British intelligence.The only people acting drunk are Bret Stephens and the rest of what is now an unintelligible editorial board comprised (mainly) of SJWs who hate of Trump. This has rendered the publication useless.
Was Trump Tower bugged. YES!
Was this sought by the Obama regime? YES!
Was this authorized by a FISA judge? YES!
Did Trump live there? YES!
Today, Nunes outlined the problem to the press. I watched it live and now quote Bloomberg because its report was the closest to accurate:
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes said Wednesday that the U.S. intelligence community collected multiple conversations involving members of Donald Trump’s transition team after he won the election last year.
After making his disclosure at the Capitol, Nunes headed to the White House to brief the president on what he had learned. Trump then told reporters gathered for an unrelated event that “I somewhat do” feel vindicated by the latest development. “I very much appreciate the fact that they found what they found.”
Nunes said that intercepts he’s seen appear to be legal and weren’t targeted at Trumps transition team or related to an investigation of Russia’s attempts to influence the U.S. presidential election. But he said he was troubled by the collection -- which he described as part of unrelated foreign surveillance -- and that the intelligence community reported the names of transition team members internally.
“I’m actually alarmed by it,” Nunes, a California Republican, told reporters at the Capitol. “Details with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value were widely disseminated in an intelligence community report,” he said. He said he didn’t know if Trump’s “own communications were intercepted.”
The disclosure may bolster Trump’s effort to back up his disputed claim in Twitter postings that former President Barack Obama tapped his phones, which his spokesman later said shouldn’t be taken literally and referred generally to having his team under surveillance. FBI Director James Comey testified before the House committee this week that “I have no information that supports those tweets.”This is a scandal worse than Watergate.
Congress needs to investigate.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions needs to prosecute.
