Spies Like Obama?The treachery of “Crossfire Hurricane” comes into the light. By Matthew Vadum.
With the flood of new evidence from recent days, it is becoming increasingly difficult to deny that President Obama – undeniably the most pro-Russian president in American history – and his men abused the powers of their offices not only to spy on then-candidate Donald Trump but also to undermine and lay the foundation for the overthrow of Trump’s administration.
No matter how many idiots and liars from both parties embarrass themselves by blathering on about the Left’s utterly insane conspiracy theory by which Russia and Trump are said to have engaged in electoral collusion, whatever that may be, we now know there was a conspiracy born in the summer of 2016 – and that Trump and his people had nothing to do with it.
This shameful real-life conspiracy is called Operation Crossfire Hurricane. Crossfire Hurricane is the codename for the FBI’s now-confirmed spying on the Trump campaign, which included placing at least one infiltrator within the campaign apparatus.
Incredibly, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said on CNN Thursday that it was “a good thing” the FBI had an informant embedded in the Trump campaign.
After admitting the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” Clapper said that person was there to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to instantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.”
Never good when the secret police get involved in politics. That’s a trend I hope we do not import from the USA. Perhaps it’s a forlorn hope, because the Australian left import nearly every other trend (even if it doesn’t fit, e.g. even if it regards blacks).
