Obama’s Spying on Trump is Looking Worse Than Anything Nixon Could Have Dreamed Up
Former President Barack Hussein Obama’s illegal surveillance scandal of President Donald Trump is set to put Watergate to shame, as Obama allegedly used spying powers that put Nixon’s Watergate fiasco to shame.
After Trump made that tweet shortly after becoming President, he was lambasted by the fake news and liberal establishment. Time has proven him correct, however, as commentator Michael Barone notes in the New York Post.
Barone explains that the likely motive behind the spying operations of Nixon and Obama, and shows why Obama’s actions were far more scandalous:
Both the Watergate wiretap and the Obama appointees’ investigator/spy infiltration were initially inspired amid fears that the upstart opposition might win. The Watergate burglary was planned when Nixon’s re-election was far from assured. A May 1972 Harris Poll showed him with only 48 percent against McGovern. It was only after the Haiphong harbor bombing and Moscow summit in early June made clear that US involvement in Vietnam was ending that Nixon’s numbers surged — just before the June 17 burglary.
In March 2016, it was conventional wisdom that Trump couldn’t be elected president. But his surprising and persistent strength in the Republican primaries left some doubtful, including the FBI lovebirds who instant messaged their desire for an “insurance policy” against that dreaded eventuality.
Their unease may have owed something to their knowledge of how the Obama Justice Department and FBI had fixed the Hillary Clinton emails case. Clinton wasn’t indicted but was left with a disastrously low 32 percent of voters confident of her honesty and trustworthiness.
There are two obvious differences between Watergate and the Obama administration’s infiltration. The Watergate burglars were arrested in flagrante delicto, and their wiretaps never functioned. And neither the FBI nor the CIA fully cooperated with the post-election cover-up.
That’s quite a contrast with the Obama law enforcement and intelligence appointees’ promotion of Christopher Steele’s Clinton campaign-financed dodgy dossier and feeding the mainstream media’s insatiable hunger for Russia collusion stories.
With Attorney General Bill Barr on the case, the likely collaborators behind Obama’s spying operation of Trump are showing signs of concern publicly.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is accusing of Trump of conducting a “coverup” by announcing he intends to release government documents:
While Trump stonewalls the public from learning the truth about his obstruction of justice,
Trump and Barr conspire to weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies.
The coverup has entered a new and dangerous phase.
This is un-American.

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) recently fainted during a press conference, suggesting that the pressure might be getting to the rotund Never Trumper.
Obama-era federal hacks are already playing the blame game, cannibalizing each other as they attempt to save face while waiting for the other shoe to drop.
“The attorney general had directed me not to call it ‘an investigation,’ but instead to call it ‘a matter,’ which confused me and concerned me,” former FBI Director James Comey said of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch of his Hillary Clinton investigation while giving Senate testimony in 2017.
Comey elaborated on the incident in his book, “A Higher Loyalty,” noting the administration’s damage control efforts: “It occurred to me in the moment that this issue of semantics was strikingly similar to the fight the Clinton campaign had waged against The New York Times in July. Ever since then, the Clinton team had been employing a variety of euphemisms to avoid using the word ‘investigation.'”
Lynch denies that she ever gave Comey these orders.
“I did not. I have never instructed a witness as to what to say specifically. Never have, never will,” Lynch responded.
“I didn’t direct anyone to use specific phraseology. When the director asked me how to best to handle that, I said: ‘What I have been saying is we have received a referral and we are working on the matter, working on the issue, or we have all the resources we need to handle the matter, handle the issue.’ So that was the suggestion that I made to him,” she added.
Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein hammered Comey as well, claiming that he is now “a partisan pundit, selling books and earning speaking fees while speculating about the strength of my character and the fate of my immortal soul. That is disappointing.”
“Speculating about souls is not a job for police and prosecutors. Generally we base our opinions on eyewitness testimony,” Rosenstein added.
Another report pointed to an e-mail chain showing that Comey implicated former CIA Director John Brennan as being the individual who demanded that former British spy Christopher Steele’s discredited opposition research dossier be included in the Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) about Russian interference. This was vehemently denied by a former CIA official to Fox News.
“Former Director Brennan, along with former [Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper, are the ones who opposed James Comey’s recommendation that the Steele Dossier be included in the intelligence report,” the official said.
“They opposed this because the dossier was in no way used to develop the ICA,” the official added. “The intelligence analysts didn’t include it when they were doing their work because it wasn’t corroborated intelligence, therefore it wasn’t used and it wasn’t included. Brennan and Clapper prevented it from being added into the official assessment. James Comey then decided on his own to brief Trump about the document.”
The finger pointing continues as AG Barr remains steadfast in his resolve to get to the bottom of exactly what prompted this investigation. The scandal already looks to be bigger than Watergate, and so much more is still yet to be uncovered.
