Then came Trump, and my vote for Voinovich is now my second proudest vote.
How nice it is after all these years to finally agree with Kucinich on something: that Obama wiretapped Trump. I mean I always liked him, but never his politics.
In a Fox News column, Hizzoner wrote:
President Trump’s assertion that his phones at Trump Tower were tapped last year has been treated as hilarious — and in some circles as beyond contempt. But I can vouch for the fact that extracurricular surveillance does occur, regardless of whether it is officially approved. I was wiretapped in 2011 after taking a phone call in my congressional office from a foreign leader.
That a secret recording had been made of this call was revealed to me by the Washington Times in 2015, a full two years after I left office.Kucinich said his opposition to the attack on Libya made him a marked man:
The call had been from Saif el-Islam Qaddafi, a high-ranking official in Libya’s government and a son of the country’s ruler, Moammar Qaddafi.
At the time I was leading efforts in the House to challenge the Obama administration’s war against Libya. The Qaddafi government reached out to me because its appeals to the White House and the State Department to forestall the escalating aggression had gone unanswered.Mind you, he was a congressman at the time.
A Democratic congressman.
Shortly after the Times story was published, I alerted congressional leaders to the breach and then let the matter rest, assuming that a series of routine Freedom of Information Act requests I had made in 2012 before leaving office would provide answers.
Five years later I am still waiting for FOIA responses from some of the intelligence agencies.The Fake News media keeps demanding President Trump show proof of the Obama administration wiretapping him.
Here it is.
Oh, that and the FISA warrant Loretta Lynch sought and received in October.
