That bitch Schumer seems a little confused.
The Senate Minority Leader appeared on NBC’s Meet The Press on Sunday to discuss President Trump’s statement that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower prior to the November election.
Schumer claimed that Obama had “flatly denied” having done so, which does not constitute evidence, of course, and even left-wing sources agree that the man calling himself Barack Obama is a notorious liar.
Addressing Chuck Todd, Schumer said:
“And either way, Chuck, the president’s in trouble. If he falsely spread this kind of misinformation, that is so wrong . . .
On the other hand, if it’s true, it’s even worse for the president. Because that means that a federal judge, independently elected, has found probable cause that the president, or people on his staff, have probable cause to have broken the law or to have interacted with a foreign agent.”
Federal judges are appointed, not elected, or “independently elected.” And the President or his staff “have probable cause to have broken the law OR to have interacted with a foreign agent”? For someone who maintains that nothing happened because Barack Obama said so, Chuck Schumer seems to know a lot of detail about why the-wiretap-that-never-was was approved by a federal judge, and specifically a FISA judge.
And Schumer seems to believe that if Barack Obama wanted to surveil Trump Tower he would do so according to legal guidelines. It certainly wouldn’t have taken much for Obama to persuade former Attorney General Loretta Lynch to provide legal cover for anything he wanted to do.
She is, after all, the same AG who met with the husband of Hillary Clinton, then the subject of an investigation into her use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State.
Lynch met with Bill “Kiss it” Clinton on the tarmac of the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport on June 27, 2016. And what did they discuss? To hear Lynch tell it, grandkids – which she doesn’t have, and golf – which she doesn’t play.
At about the same time, the Obama administration filed a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) “to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers.” That request was denied.
One week later, FBI Director James Comey explained in detail the abundant evidence of malfeasance on the part of the Sec’y of State, but concluded that “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring a case against her.
By October 2016 the Obama administration had submitted a new FISA request with a pared-down scope, which was okayed.
The targets of FISA investigations are classified, as they are supposed to be “agents of foreign powers.” In this case, the Obama administration was able to surveil a Republican presidential candidate, and presumably convey what useful information was gathered to the Democrat candidate. So it’s handy that Obama had a pseudonym that he used when he contacted Hillary Clinton on her private email server.
So bring on the investigations. But be prepared for literal heads to roll once Hillary and Obama are shown to have colluded to destroy President Trump and steal the election. Hillary’s past particularly is littered with the corpses of those who displeased her.
