…or he never would have publicly accused the Obama Administration of surveilling him. Now, the deranged anti-Trumpers won’t believe this statement because they choose to believe that Trump is some kind of imbecile who is a slave to his animal impulses (and don’t forget, a Russian puppet).
This picture of Trump is convenient to them because in their minds, it means they don’t have to actually engage on issues or articulate an intelligent critique of Trump’s policies and actions. It also makes them feel better about the felon that they chose to vote for. But the reality is that Trump has a brilliant mind and just like I said a couple of weeks ago, he’s letting this all play out very publicly so that he can gain the maximum amount of benefit when the evidence is finally revealed to the public.
Former CIA officer Col. Tony Shaffer said the basics of President Trump’s claim to have been “wiretapped” are likely true, and that the incident is “worse than Watergate.”
Noting it has been exactly two weeks since Trump tweeted that President Obama wiretapped his namesake tower, Shaffer said the “basic fundamental idea and claim is true.”
He said that Trump was not physically wiretapped, with a wire into his phone, and it may not have physically been Trump Tower, but his campaign apparatus instead.
Shaffer said that due to the simplicity required to “mask” an American’s name during an incidental wiretap, that the leak of Gen. Michael Flynn’s name was “accidental on purpose.”
“Clearly they were after gossip because it was political,” Shaffer said, maintaining that the alleged wiretap had nothing to do with Russia.
The “political appointees” in the intelligence community knew exactly what they were surveilling for, Shaffer said, adding that the case is “much worse than Watergate by an order of magnitude.”
He said that even if the surveillance was done legally, the “unmasking” of Americans’ names and the leaking of the information are felonies.
