I knew it was going to be true. This is how Trump always works. He deliberately makes an outrageous sounding statement that on the surface, makes him sound like a liar, or an idiot. The media goes into a frenzy, tripping over themselves to mock him for it. Then a few days or weeks later, he’s proven correct, and in the process, he causes the media to expose themselves as the liars that they are. And they keep falling into the trap every single time. They don’t call him the master of 4D chess for no reason, you know.
The latest in the fast-moving story about Susan Rice’s alleged unmasking of several aides to President Donald Trump’s campaign is that the data request was for “detailed spreadsheets” of intercepted telephone calls.
Funny how in this situation, it’s only “alleged”, but in the case of Russia supposedly hacking the election, and Trump cooperating with them when they did it, it’s always reported as a confirmed fact, even though there is no actual evidence to support it.
Unlike the Russia hacking story, there actually is evidence to support this wiretapping story, yet this is only “alleged” to be true apparently. That’s the mainstream media for you. They don’t exist to keep people informed about what’s going on. They exist to manipulate the masses to think a certain way.
A former U.S. attorney named Joseph diiGenova told the Daily Caller: “What was produced by the intelligence community at the request of Ms. Rice were detailed spreadsheets of intercepted phone calls with unmasked Trump associates in perfectly legal conversations with individuals.”
That’s quite a bit different than data on Trump being mistakenly swept into a intelligence operation.
They were obviously just looking for dirt to use against him in the election.
“The overheard conversations involved no illegal activity by anybody of the Trump associates, or anyone they were speaking with,” diGenova said, to the news outlet. “In short, the only apparent illegal activity was the unmasking of the people in the calls.”
The question is, will anyone face prison time for doing this?
The Daily Caller and Breitbart reported confirmation of diGenova’s comments from “other official sources with direct knowledge.”
And one more tidbit: These spreadsheets were allegedly requested by Rice a year before the 2016 presidential election.
Like I said, just looking for dirt on him. There was no way they could have possibly been investigating a suspected Russian hacking of the election, a year before the election even happened, and before Trump was even the Republican nominee. As I’ve said before, the political establishment were out to destroy Trump right from the beginning. They were probably hoping to find some dirt they could use against him early on, to stop him from even getting the nomination in the first place, that’s how threatened they were by him.
Meanwhile, Fox News has been reporting the unmasked names of Trump’s aides were turned over to officials within the National Security Council and the Department of Defense, as well as to James Clapper, then-President Barack Obama’s director of national intelligence, and to John Brennan, CIA director under Obama.
Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser under Obama — just a slot behind Rice — was also named by Fox News as participating in the alleged White House-fueled data collection operation.
But somehow we’re supposed to believe that Obama himself was unaware of what his underlings were up to. They’re going to be the ones thrown under the bus for this, in his place.
No wonder Obama’s been largely silent on the whole Trump Tower wiretapping matter.
Doesn’t want to be on record denying his involvement, and then being caught out later and exposed as a liar as well. If he doesn’t deny it, he isn’t technically a liar.
Anyway, from looking at this story, here’s my theory on how this relates to the Russian hacker narrative. The Democrats committed a blatant abuse of power by collecting information on Trump and his people illegally, with the intention of using any information they found, against him. They did this with the full understanding that they’d get away with it, because Hillary was going to win the election and would cover it all up anyway. Unfortunately for them, they found nothing substantial that they could use against him. When Hillary lost, they panicked, because they knew Trump would now have access to all the files and intel related to the spying against him.
To protect themselves, they then made up an idiotic conspiracy theory that Russia hacked the election (with no supporting evidence whatsoever), and that Trump cooperated with them. This served two purposes. The first purpose, was to distract people from the real corruption that was going on, on their side. The second, was to give them a plausible justification for their spying, once it was inevitably exposed to the public. They could claim that Trump was suspected of engaging in illegal activities with the Russians to hack the election, and that they were really spying on the Russians, in order to protect the integrity of their democracy. Then they claim that any information found on Trump was “incidental” from when they were spying on Russia.
I hope people can see through this nonsense by now. My only worry is that people are so blinded by their hatred of Trump, that they won’t give a damn about this corrupt and illegal act, just because he was the victim. The psychological phenomenon that led to witch hunts 400 years ago, still exists in people today. I think a lot of people today, would rather see Trump go down for this Russian hacker thing, even though it’s clearly false, rather than see true justice served, and for those involved in spying on him, and inventing the Russian story, from getting their just desserts.
