Lt Col Tony Shaffer lends his expertise to the revelations by President Trump that Hussein Obama used the United States government as an eavesdropping tool against the Trump campaign during the election, that they were spying on him and his staff and much of his Trump Tower.
Shaffer characterizes what Obama may be guilty of doing as “Soviet level wrongdoing,” noting that Obama has moved to his new nerve center for taking down Trump and moved Valerie Jarrett in to operate it. He believes, contrary to the word-parsing statement of Obama’s spokesliar, that it’s very likely Obama did authorize the actions. He was in charge, so either he did directly or implicitly.
He references information that was floating around on the dark net since July that something was going on, despite pushback from the FISA court. Shaffer notes there will be a paper trail at NSA on this, that John Brennan is probably involved, and that the paper trail that President Trump has been looking for “has finally showed up.”
He describes it as the Obama administration using their form of the FSB or KGB to target a candidate. An article from the New York Times of January 19th, while Obama was still occupying the White House is introduced into the discussion, which references “intelligence reports based upon some of the wiretapped communications have been provided to the White House.” Shaffer says, “there you go.”
He also says, “This is completely insidious, this is on an order of magnitude worse than Watergate, where you’ve actually used the mechanisms of state, the power of the state to go after a candidate for the presidency, noting that Trump was presumed to be the loser. That may have played into their gamble and willingness to be as reckless as they were.
Shaffer says, “While the Democrats keep talking about the Russians, this is Soviet behavior. This is the very thing the Soviet Union would have engaged in back during the Cold War.
He’s asked if this is a game changer moment, to which Shaffer replies, “Oh no doubt. We’re talking about the potential of indictments for a former sitting President and his staff and that’s unheard of.
Thank you for reading and sharing my work – Facebook is trying to starve us out of existence, having cut literally 98% of our traffic over the last year. Your shares are crucial for our survival, and we thank you. We’ve also created a presence on Gab.ai and MeWe.com, although their reach is presently much smaller, the continued abuse by Facebook of conservative voices leaves us no option. We’re remaining on Facebook for the time being, as we make the transition. Please take a look when you have a chance or if we “suddenly disappear” from Facebook as has happened to many other truth-tellers. They’ll either starve us out or take us down, one way or another, sooner or later.
