Former Congressman Dennis Kucinich relates details of when he was surveilled by the US intelligence community as a sitting Congressman. He points out that it was a violation of the separation of powers, that without a criminal investigation the executive branch is not supposed to be eavesdropping on the legislative branch.
In 2011 Kucinich had a resolution in the House to attempt to stop the war and the associated takeover of Libya by radical Islamists. Said al-Islam Gaddafi, Muammar Gaddafi’s son, called Kucinich to discuss it. Kucinich brought with him copies of two redacted pages which he indicates are proof that the DNI was tracking his bill’s progress.
Kucinich asks the question, “What was their appropriate role in redacting a resolution they were tracking?” He notes the al-Qaeda flag was flying over the capitol in a war I tried to stop. He reasons, “And why were they listening into my conversation – because they wanted to find a way to strategize to defeat the resolution that I had that would have stopped the war.” Kucinich clarifies that the “they” he’s talking about was the Obama regime.
He was never made aware of this or any other eavesdropping during the remainder of his tenure in Congress and it was only as the result of being brought the information by two investigative reporters from the Washington Times that he even knows about it today. The meeting with those reporters took place two years after he left office and it did not involve any Russians. In fact, that was just a short year before Hussein Obama would deride his opponent Mitt Romney in debates, saying, “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.” It was American intelligence spying on an American Congressman.
Kucinich, a Democrat and former presidential candidate, says that when he first heard the claims by President Trump of wiretapping at Trump Tower he heard a lot of people laughing about it. Kucinich was not among those. He said, “Wait a minute. I had something happen to me. I’ve never talked about it before, but I thought this is the time to explain to people, that if a member of Congress can have his phone tapped on a policy matter, hey, this could happen to anybody.
If it could happen to one of 435 members of Congress from the same political party as the pretend ‘president,’ who posed little threat to the establishment doing exactly as they pleased, is it unreasonable to think it could happen to the presidential candidate opposing the continuation of his regime in power? No, it would be irrational to dismiss it as unlikely when the opposite is the case. It’s a virtual certainty.
