Last month the mainstream media was mainly trying to create a mania over Trump's alleged collusion with Russia with the goal, I suppose, of getting him impeached.
I've been patiently waiting for nine months for ANY evidence of Trump collusion with Russia ... and now Russian newspapers are severely criticizing Trump for firing 59 missiles at a Syrian air force base.
"Russians got Trump elected" is false news -- the real news is how Obama used his government intelligence agencies for political spying on Trump ... with the goal of finding 'dirt' to defeat him before the election, and then discrediting him after his surprise victory.
Sounds just like Obama's 'Chicago politics' to me.
Did you know Obama first became a Senator due to spying on his opponents?
Obama got to the Senate in 2004 by getting embarrassing information released about his primary opponent AND general election opponent from supposedly "sealed" divorce decrees.
Today's subject started last month when Judge Andrew Napolitano appeared on 'Fox and Friends' and claimed President Obama circumvented US law by using a British intelligence agency to conduct surveillance of the Trump campaign.
Napolitano claimed he had three separate sources, and he is one of the few Fox News' guests that I would trust when making such a "breaking news" claim.
“Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command. He didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI, and he didn’t use the Department of Justice. He used GCHQ.”
“What the heck is GCHQ? That’s the initials for the British spying agency. They have 24/7 access to the NSA database.”
“So by simply having two people go to them saying, ‘President Obama needs transcripts of conversations involving candidate Trump, conversations involving president-elect Trump,’ he’s able to get it, and there’s no American fingerprints on this."
The Obama administration and foreign intelligence agencies issued immediate denials.
The mainstream media trashed Napolitano's claim as a "conspiracy theory".
I didn't hear anything related to his claim on CNN, which was no surprise, but I also didn't hear it mentioned again on Fox News.
I recently found out even Fox News didn't believe Napolitano -- they gave him a multi-day suspension from the station!
The Napolitano claim was forgotten ... until last week:
CNN now seems to have confirmed Judge Andrew Napolitano's surprising claim on Fox News last month.
CNN said British and other European intelligence agencies intercepted communications between associates of Donald Trump and Russian officials and other Russian individuals during the campaign.
And they passed on those communications to their US counterparts, according to what US congressional and law enforcement and US and European intelligence sources told CNN.
The communications were allegedly captured during routine surveillance of Russian officials and other Russians known to western intelligence.
British and European intelligence agencies, including GCHQ, the British intelligence agency responsible for communications surveillance, allegedly picked up "incidental" multiple communications over several months between Trump associates and Russian individuals.
They passed on that intelligence to the US, because the US, Great Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand are part of the "Five Eyes" agreement -- open sharing of a broad range of intelligence.
(1) Intercepted communications were not directly requested by the Obama administration, but voluntarily given to them, unsolicited, by British intelligence.
(2) British intelligence "accidentally" happened to collect (i.e.; incidental collection) communications of Trump's advisers.
I don't believe (1) or (2), as claimed by CNN.
Several Republican Congressmen have already told the media they viewed or heard intelligence about Trump and his aides and did not notice any connection with Russia (such as a Trump team member being half of a phone conversation with the Russian Ambassador, which is certainly not a crime).
My conclusion is there is no doubt Trump was right when he claimed he and his team were spied on. (aka "wiretapped").
Evidence so far suggests Trump people were spied on over a long period of time -- at least a year -- and information collected was far more than just "incidental" intelligence from intended spying on Russians.
Based on what I learned about NSA's spying capabilities from Edward Snowden, a President can use his NSA to spy on anyone without a warrant ... but then Snowden is a fugitive living in Russia, so is not an unbiased source.
There's still no evidence presented to the public to prove any collusion between Trump, or his advisers, and any Russians.
Several high level Obama officials already said they found no Trump collusion with Russia, even knowing they would soon lose their jobs (when Trump took office) and knowing they didn't have to say anything that helped Trump.
'The Russians Got Trump Elected' has to be considered to be fake news from leftists, unless real evidence comes out contradicting that conclusion, and I've been waiting for nine months, so far, for ANY evidence.
