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.
Here is how the Watergate-style spying worked, according to Breitbart News, which reported, in June, "The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied."
But Breitbart reported, in October, "The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services."
The wiretapping of a political opponent reveals the true character of Obama who was the most vain and immature president in history.
Obama's unpresidential and unprecedented disdain for Trump was shown when Obama repeatedly mocked him when Trump was a guest at the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2011.
Nothing would surprise me about the lying, incompetent Obama whose legacy is a failed economy, a failed health plan, the rise of the Islamic State, and an undeserved Nobel Prize.
Obama was an affirmative action hire. However, in retrospect, Obama also was better than John McCain or Mitt Romney, whom I supported.
Obama and the Democratic Party have since the election openly resisted the peaceful transition of power that is the hallmark of a constitutional Republic.
More than 200 Democratic voters openly rioted during Trump's inauguration speech.
Democratic senators have used delaying tactics to stall the installation of a Cabinet, kneecapping President Trump's efforts to run the government.
Getting the national press to cover this outrage takes cunning. Trump used Twitter. Note what he said, and what he did not say:
The first meeting Jeff Sessions had with the Russian Amb was set up by the Obama Administration under education program for 100 Ambs......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
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
Just out: The same Russian Ambassador that met Jeff Sessions visited the Obama White House 22 times, and 4 times last year alone.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
Is it legal for a sitting President to be "wire tapping" a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
President Trump offered no "proof," which should fake the Fake News media into jumping all over him. Then, when the Trump-is-crazy calls reach a peak, boom, out comes the proof that Obama indeed used the power of his office to spy on a political opponent.How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
We shall see how this plays out.
The broader issue is the power of the federal government is now too large for mortals like Obama to give up that power voluntarily.
This is another reason -- the over-arching reason -- we need to cut the federal government in half.
And certainly, at least on FISA judge needs to be removed and gave his pension suspended.
Looking at this, I realized we stopped Adolfa last fall.
UPDATE: Wonder what FISA order Obama had in 2012....
