Report Reveals Obama Government Wiretapped Trump Campaign


President Trump has once again shown himself to be right, to the chagrin of CNN and the FNIC at large. But, really, this issue extends far beyond the mere vindication of the President's word.

The verified report clearly revealing the wiretapping of Trump Tower and former Trump campaign manager, Paul Manifort, raises many questions about the actions of former FBI director James Comey and other Obama administration officials.

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.”

Paul Manifort has personal business offices in Trump Tower separate from his political ties to the President. Consequently, any wiretapping of Manifort’s phone lines EVEN outside of President Trump’s campaign was still a wiretap of Trump Tower.

The report said the secret court that handles the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act had authorized a surveillance warrant against Manafort for an investigation that began in 2014, looking into his firm, the Podesta Group, and another firm’s lobbying work for Ukraine’s pro-Russian former ruling party.

“The surveillance was discontinued at some point last year for lack of evidence,” a source told CNN.

HOWEVER, the failed investigation became of importance once again when then-candidate Trump secured the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

However, the FBI then restarted the surveillance after obtaining a new FISA warrant that extended early into this year. The report notably does not say when the new warrant was obtained. Manafort joined the Trump campaign as its chairman in May 2016.

The new warrant was “part of the FBI’s efforts to investigate ties between Trump campaign associates and suspected Russian operatives,” according to the report.

James Comey, while still FBI director, swore under oath to the Senate Intelligence Committee that “I know of no surveillance in Trump Tower”. How could that be if his own men were conducting the wiretapping and he himself supposedly worried about President Trump's actions to the point of writing up memos (diary scribbling's) to immortalize every meeting with Commander-in-Chief?

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.

Both the Justice Department and the FBI denied any wiretapping of Trump Tower.

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.

There are only two ways to LEGALLY wiretap an American citizen: FISA or traditional court warrant.

FISA grants 99% of wiretapping request. The bar is very very low. However, they can only “technically” be used to prosecute the foreign official speaking to the American citizen being spied on or wiretapped.

A regular or traditional warrant is much harder to obtain. The government officials have to testify under oath to a secret judge that there is evidence of criminality, and that the info used from the wiretap will be used to court against the domestic suspect being investigated.

Why would government officials take the time to re-wiretap a man found to be innocent UNLESS it was merely a ruse to spy on President Trump's campaign operations?

Granted they did indeed use a FISA warrant, they can't use that info to prosecute Paul Manifort! And how do you rationalize the FBI, Justice Department, and the NSI ALL knowing about this UNLESS it were a coordinated effort to take down then-candidate Trump and asset the Clinton campaign.

Manifort is a small fish. It is laughable and absurd to think multiple agencies would re-open a closed evidence less case into an innocent man “just to be thorough”…

According to some legal experts, James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice, Valerie Jarrett and other Obama administration officials might be lying to avoid going to prison themselves. Watch the video to learn more!
