Trump Vindicated: Report Says Obama Government Wiretapped Trump Campaign

Trump Vindicated: Report Says Obama Government Wiretapped Trump Campaign, by Kristina Wong.

U.S. investigators wiretapped President Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to a report by CNN that vindicates the president’s earlier claims, which were mocked as a conspiracy theory. …

CNN itself at the time called the idea that Trump was wiretapped “incendiary.”

But a report Monday evening said U.S. investigators obtained a surveillance warrant on Manafort from a secret court and had monitored him before and after the election, including a “period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump.”

The report notes, “such warrants require the approval of top Justice Department and FBI officials” — but doesn’t specify which top Justice Department and FBI officials had approved it.

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former FBI Director James Comey were leading the agencies, respectively, at the time. …

A some point, the FBI obtained the new FISA warrant and began monitoring Manafort again — who has a residence in Trump Tower. The story said it’s “unclear” whether the FBI surveillance took place there.

The Justice Department and the FBI denied that Trump was being wiretapped. Comey later in March disputed Trump’s claims — in testimony that lawmakers could now find misleading.

Obama or his close allies probably used government agencies to spy on political enemies, but will not be held accountable — he is a Democrat and he is black. If Obama got charges you would immediately hear cries of racism.
