In a series of Tweets, Donald Trump made the claim, slamming it as a “new low”. He then appeared to brand Obama a “bad (or sick) guy”.

The property tycoon turned politician wrote: “How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”

Watergate refers the early 1970s political scandal which forced the resignation of Republican President Richard Nixon when it emerged that the Democratic party’s headquarters had been broken into.

He also tweeted: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”

McCarthyism is the practise of making accusations without proper evidence.

He later added: “Is it legal for a sitting President to be “wire tapping” a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!”

This presentation shows that Obama's crimes "rise to the level of"  "high crimes and misdemeanors" in his presidency.  What can be done to a seditious former president?  One thing seems clear, Mr. James Comey is NOT the man to handle crime of or on this level.  Is he an "at will" employee of the President?  If so, then he must go.  We need an FBI chief on the level of J. Edgar Hoover, who could bring on investigations that allow indictments.  The President and his leadership team need to GET TOUGH NOW.

HYPOCRISY: 7X More Coverage for Sessions Debacle than Holder Contempt

 

If you ever doubted that the media see the news through a partisan prism, consider this: in less than two days, ABC, CBS and NBC devoted nearly 7 times as much coverage to Jeff Sessions meeting with the Russian Ambassador in his role as a U.S. Senator than they did when then-Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress in June 2012.

Tracking Liberal Media Bias Since 1996

John... that was CRIMINAL CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS... for which the Bar Association should have disbarred him.  He is practicing law in California as we type.. so much for the integrity of the American Bar Association.  Just one more corrupt institution.

Shopping Judges and providing false evidence to obtain a wire tap is within your preview... Obama's first attempt to obtain a FISA wire tap evidently did not prove successful so they manufactured more evidence and reapplied until they found a FISA Judge willing to sign an order... or simply, by passed a Judge and proceeded with the wire tap thinking they would never be caught... recall, Trump was supposed to loose by huge margins.

Amicable Judge could be on a Road to Riches, check whoever signed the Order, then check their Off Shore Accounts, or sudden wealth............Tapping Hillary made sense, as she was always involved in nefarious activities, but Trump................Misuse of Government Agencies..

Former Acting CIA Director and Hillary Clinton endorser Michael Morell spoke out at an event on Wednesday held by Cipher Brief, saying there’s absolutely no evidence to support claims of President Trump colluding with Russia, via NBC News.

“On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire, at all…There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it,” Morell stated.

May we also say that in my 40 years of following news, I have never seen such a dead horse of a story get so much coverage.  What explains this is that there are many, many "snowflakes" "out there" in the Leftist Bubble who feed on Trump Hate stories, and the Hate Stories that tell about all the "Fake News" that Trump's faithful believe like the Gospel.  It reminds me of the pathetic "Ghost Dance" the Sioux did at Wounded Knee before they died.  

Another "Mass Media Myth"..........these people should write Story Books, or maybe Funny Books.

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
