It Seems Obama Knew About Government Spying on Trump

By Eddie Howell

The leftist/globalist/establishment deep state, aka “The Swamp,” which is showing itself to be hardly better than the Mafia, is running a vicious and entirely unjustified campaign of lies, delay tactics, and protests, to try to destroy the Donald Trump presidency.

I don't know how Trump found out his Trump Tower offices were bugged; maybe just by reading the newspapers, as Mark Levin details in the video below. Published articles in widely-read newspapers have reported that multiple intelligence agencies were involved (with FISA court approval) in spying on then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and his people regarding ties to Russia. Spying by an incumbent administration on a presidential campaign of the other party is something not heard of since Watergate. Mark Levin presents the case against the Obama Administration based simply on published reports, compiled by an experienced Justice Department official and constitutional lawyer (Levin). This appears to be a situation which deserves congressional investigation, and it seems unlikely to go away soon. The Levin video from his appearance on “Fox and Friends” follows:








 





Maria Bartiromo interviewed Newt Gingrich concerning the wiretap, soon after Levin's appearance on “Fox and Friends.” Gingrich also referred her to former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy's National Review column concerning this.


If no evidence of collusion with Russia was found, and so far nothing has been presented, the spying was a egregious misuse of federal spy resources for political purposes. Like Watergate, only worse, since more agencies were involved. How could Obama not know about it and be OK with it, even is he didn't “order” it? He should be held to account.
