There are numerous videos on YouTube that show many multiples of news channels all saying the same damning things about Donald Trump verbatim.
You would hear phrases like “the wall are closing in,” “the beginning of the end,” and “seventeen different intelligence agencies confirm…”
Then in January of 2017, Trump told the world that the Obama administration has authorized Intel agencies like the NSA to “wiretap” his campaign team. Just like they moved in lockstep to condemn him, they moved in lockstep to mock him over that comment.
Then in March of that year, we got the Vault 7 document from Wikileaks.
Vault 7 demonstrated that not only was it possible for the “wiretaps” Trump was talking about to have happened, but that it was far more likely to be true than not. That’s because the Vault 7 info dump also told us that agencies like the CIA and the NSA were doing to everyone what Trump said they were doing to him.
Not only that, but it detailed the practice of “unmasking.”
This is a process where a surveillance team takes the metadata of a private citizen and de-anonymize it. The only way this is possible or meaningful is if the data collected were taken indiscriminately from millions and millions of Americans at random. Metadata is taken from whole populations. From there, individuals can be “unmasked” on an individual basis.
To make matters worse, this unmasking can be none in total radio silence. Anyone can be unmasked at any time, and no permissions need to be given or received.
Now, where this all comes home is in that fact that months before the “wiretapping” of Donald Trump became an issue, Susan Rice had admitted to the practice of “unmasking” private individuals.
So, we know they have the technology, we know they have the motive, and we know they do it all the time. Now, it’s time for the denials.
Trump’s Attorney General William Barr has publicly stated that he believes the FBI, authorized by the Obama administration, spied on Trump.
Former FBI director James Comey has made a point of coming out of the woodwork to say he doesn’t know what Barr’s talking about.
Have you ever seen a frightened snake when it knows that it isn’t a match for its opponent? First, the snake will try to escape.
Then it will puff up and try to look as big and aggressive as possible. Then it will play dead. In other words, it will try every deception it can in order to save its own skin- not unlike the anti-Trump establishment.
On Wednesday the 10th, William Barr said before Congress that he believes President Trump was spied on by intelligence agencies before he was President. In other words, he believes they spied on Trump- the U.S. citizen.
Barr said, “I think spying did occur. But the question is whether it was adequately predicated and I’m not suggesting it wasn’t adequately predicated, but I need to explore that.”
Barr is saying that he is sure Trump was illegally spied on and that he intends to find out if the people who spied on him had the legal right to spy on him.
We already know about the Carter Page FISA warrants. We know that the FISA court would authorize almost every warrant request that was brought before it.
The FISA court’s approval rate is something like 80%. In terms of granting warrants, that’s the equivalent to a rubber stamp. We also know that the request to spy on Trump was denied at least three desperate times.
With such a high approval rate, it was only a matter of time before one of them got approved.
Finally, the reasoning used to justify the warrants were illegally obtained records from a computer in Trump Tower. The records showed a business transaction with a client in Russia.
That’s the entire basis for the Russian collusion conspiracy; that a world-class real estate tycoon sold a building to someone in Russia.
In response to Barr’s comment, James Comey had this to say about the new AG, “I think that his career has earned him the presumption that he will be one of the rare cabinet members who will stand up for things like truth.”
We appreciate cordiality any time the left manages to muster it, but the question is this: if a guy typing on his laptop in his living room knows this much about illegal deep-state spying, how credible is Comey when he says he knows nothing?
