On January 10, 49 BC the Roman Republic was dealt a deathblow. On that day, he crossed the Rubicon. The rest is history.
Our new President has accused the Obama Administration of wiretapping his home phones right before the election. Mark Levin, an almost vicious Never Trumper has changed his tune and wants something done about it. I think he’s right that the President needs to do a recess appointment of a deputy attorney general, then assign that person the investigation. Frankly, I think it should be SC’s Fourth District Congressman Trey Gowdy, who is a bulldog.
Can anyone be prosecuted if any laws were violated?
Was it even illegal?
“…This bring us to Watergate-on-Steroids, or #ObamaGate. Here are the problematic aspects of the Obama surveillance on Trump’s team, and on Trump himself. First, it is not apparent FISA could ever be invoked. Second, it is possible Obama’s team may have perjured themselves before the FISA court by withholding material information essential to the FISA court’s willingness to permit the government surveillance. Third, it could be that Obama’s team illegally disseminated and disclosed FISA information in direct violation of the statute precisely prohibiting such dissemination and disclosure. FISA prohibits, under criminal penalty, Obama’s team from doing any of the three.
At the outset, the NSA should have never been involved in a domestic US election. Investigating the election, or any hacking of the DNC or the phishing of Podesta’s emails, would not be a FISA matter. It does not fit the definition of war sabotage or a “grave” “hostile” war-like attack on the United States, as constrictively covered by FISA. It is your run-of-the-mill hacking case covered by existing United States laws that require use of the regular departments of the FBI, Department of Justice, and Constitutionally Senate-appointed federal district court judges, and their appointed magistrates, not secretive, deferential FISA courts.
Out of 35,000+ requests for surveillance, the FISA court has only ever rejected a whopping 12. Apparently, according to published reports, you can add one more to that — even the FISA court first rejected Obama’s request to spy on Trump’s team under the guise of an investigation into foreign agents of a pending war attack, intelligence agents apparently returned to the court, where, it is my assumption, that they did not disclose or divulge all material facts to the court when seeking the surveillance the second time around, some of which they would later wrongfully disseminate and distribute to the public. By itself, misuse of FISA procedures to obtain surveillance is itself, a crime…”
When one considers what Obama did to newsman James Rosen, it is fairly easy to realize that the Obama Administration was perfectly capable of doing anything they wanted to go after Donald Trump.
The bitter irony here is that Democrats are now waxing profoundly about how Trump is going to destroy this country, when they are the ones doing just that. Thanks to Barack Obama, who is either mentally ill or bribed his actions by George Soros, we are at that Rubicon moment in this nation’s history. This is how freedom dies. The question we need to ask is if they are doing it intentional, or are just that disturbed and ambitious.
