If anyone believes Obama’s denial about illegally wiretapping Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election, I have some swamp land to sell you. People believe Obama is capable and willing to do such things based on his past and current history.
He is not keeping it classy by stoking violent riots against our current president. And, he did not keep it classy when he politicized the IRS to go after tea party groups in order to help his 2012 re-election chances. After Obama’s spokespeople claimed the president has no powers to tap people’s phones, WikiLeaks released a list of politicians and companies who were wiretapped by Obama and his minions. This is from WikiLeaks:
- UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin
Chief of Staff of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for long term interception targeting his Swiss phone
Director of the Rules Division of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Johann Human, and targetted his Swiss phone for long term interception
stole sensitive Italian diplomatic cables detailing how Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu implored Italy’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to help patch up his relationship with US President Barack Obama, who was refusing to talk to Netanyahu
Intercepted top EU and Japanese trade ministers discussing their secret strategy and red lines to stop the US “extort[ing]” them at the WTO Doha arounds (the talks subsequently collapsed);
Explicitly targeted five other top EU economic officials for long term interception, including their French, Austrian and Belgium phone numbers
Explicitly targetted the phones of Italy’s ambassador to NATO and other top Italian officials for long term interception
Intercepted details of a critical private meeting between then French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Merkel and Berluscon, where the latter was told the Italian banking system was ready to “pop like a cork”.
THIS ISN’T A FULL LIST. Remember when the Obama Justice Department bugged Fox News’ James Rosen? They tapped his phones and monitored his friends and family “as a potential crime in a probe of classified leaks.”
This is from The Gateway Pundit:
In addition to the above list we also know now that Obama wire tapped various individuals in the US media that were reporting information not flattering to the Obama Administration. It is widely known that Obama’s Justice Department targeted journalists with wiretaps in 2013:
* In 2013 the liberal Washington Post expressed outrage after the revelation that the Justice Department had investigated the newsgathering activities of a Fox News reporter as a potential crime in a probe of classified leaks. The reporter, Fox News’ James Rosen and his family, were part of an investigation into government officials anonymously leaking information to journalists. Rosen was not charged but his movements and actions were tracked.
* Also in 2013, members of the Associated Press were also a target of the surveillance. The ultra liberal New Yorker even noted that “In moderate and liberal circles, at least, the phone-records scandal, partly because it involves the dear old A.P. and partly because it raises anew the specter of Big Brother, may well present the most serious threat to Obama’s reputation.”
* Reporter Sharyl Attkisson said in 2014 that her personal computer and CBS laptop were hacked after she began filing stories about Benghazi that were unflattering to the Obama administration. A source who checked her laptop said the hacker used spyware “proprietary to a government agency,” according to an article in the New York Post.
Where there’s smoke, there’s Obama.
