The intelligence services all deny any involvement in mounting surveillance against Trump…it’s just impossible that Trump’s phones were tapped because that’s illegal as would be involving the UK…and we know they’d never do anything illegal…and yet Obama tapped Angela Merkel’s phone…and the intelligence services were, as they admit, trying to link Trump to the Russians…just how do they do that without tracking his every move? Is it conceivable that they would allow a man who was supposedly in a conspiracy with the Russians to go unchecked? Perhaps the intelligence services didn’t ask for a wiretap because the Democrat’s claim that Trump is linked to the Russians was complete bunkum and they are only going through the motions as they tell us an investigation is in progess…what other explanation can there be for, what would otherwise be, a serious dereliction of duty?…’former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s remark earlier this month that a paper compiled by the DNI, NSA, FBI, and CIA included “no evidence” of Trump associates’ collusion with Russia. Clapper said neither he nor the agencies had uncovered any “evidence of such collusion.”‘
Or maybe they did ask for a wiretap…but the specific wording is being used to get around Trump’s assertion that ‘Obama authorised a wiretap on Trump himself’…the defence is saying it was a general wiretap of Trump’s associates...but not of the big cheese himself? [H/T Will Jones]…from the New York Times [19th Jan]...
One official said intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House.
So Obama knew of the wiretap then…and must have approved of it…just as he did Merkel’s….ad he was using it to discredit Trump’s campaign.
The Today show brought on an Establishment sock puppet[08:10] to peddle the corporate narrative that Trump is spreading fake news and the intelligence services are paragons of virtue, whiter than white. Naturally he also appeared in the Guardian peddling the same line.
He tells us about Trump’s claims…
Dangerous it is. The intelligence relationship between Britain and America is unique and precious. It is critical to our shared efforts to counter terrorism, Russian aggression, the cyber-attacks of China, the nuclear threat from North Korea and much else.
OK…might be more convincing if he hadn’t gone to the BBC and Guardian, the two organisations who have done most to undermine the Western intelligence and security services, who have worked relentlessly to undermine the Prevent anti-terrorist programme, who have supported and excused Muslim terrorists and have themselves both been complicit in promoting the Islamist narrative of Muslims under attack thus providing the anti-Western propaganda that is central to the Islamist’s recruitment drive. The BBC and Guardian further the terrorist cause, Trump wants to stop the terrorists…and yet Trump is the danger?
Curious how the BBC is now so ready to believe the intelligence services when the BBC has spent the last 14 years telling us they are all lying criminals…the Iraq War, Guantanamo, rendition, water boarding, Snowden…now..all change…every word is gospel…as long as Trump is the target.
Of course ‘they’ were tapping his phone, steaming his mail open and putting a glass to the wall…might not have been the FBI but the US has a myriad of known and, less known, agencies and groups capable of doing that…off the record. Inconceivable that rumours of links of the potential next POTUS to the old enemy were not being investigated to the full.
Again, funny how the BBC is completely uninterested in doing any investigative work or providing a counter argument to the Establishment one.
