Israel Accused of Planting Spy Devices near the White House: True or False


Israel caught planting spy devices outside White House

 The miniature surveillance devices, colloquially known as “StingRays,” mimic cell towers to fool cellphones into giving them their locations and identity information. They can also capture the contents of calls and data use.

 However, the Trump administration has cast doubts on the reports, claiming the strength of the U.S.-Israel relationship means Israel would be unlikely to engage in such a hostile act.

Foxnews.com reports: A Politico story based on interviews with former senior U.S. officials claimed that the government believes Israel planted cellphone surveillance devices in the nation’s capital over the past few years. Devices were reportedly planted near the White House and other locations. The report said the U.S., following a forensic analysis, determined that agents from Israel most likely brought them here.

“I don’t believe that. No, I don’t believe that the Israelis are spying on us,” Trump said on Thursday evening from the South Lawn, before heading to a GOP retreat in Baltimore. “I find that hard to believe.”

Current and former Israeli officials pushed back hard against the Politico report on Thursday. Amos Yadlin, the former head of the IDF Military Intelligence Directorate, reportedly called it “fake news spiced with anti-Semitism,” stating that Israel bans spying on the U.S.

A reporter for Israeli newspaper Haaretz traveling with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his office was calling the report a “blatant lie.” Like Yadlin, the office said the Israeli government has a directive not to engage in intelligence operations on U.S. soil.

The president touted the strong relationship between his administration and Israel, specifically citing the establishment of a U.S. embassy in Jerusalem and harsh U.S. sanctions against Iran.

“I wouldn’t believe that story,” Trump reiterated. “Anything’s possible, but I don’t believe it.”

 Tough one, Tiffany, everyone is spying on each other.

I really do not know?

Ok, what ever...

Strictly speaking if Israel planted these devices they screwed up... such devices are not supposed to be found... and if found ... they are supposed to be non-identifieable.

Reports from Three unidentified, unnamed sources ... supposedly former Administration Officials claim Israel is spying on the US of A.  Well I have it on good grounds, reports from 10 former Obama Officials that the moon is made of cheese and Obama has built a cheese processing plant on the dark side of the moon and is now selling bite size pieces of the moon... with the promise that it will regrow hair, cure cancer and make one a genuous over night.

So much, for unnamed sources and journalism by the MSM... I hear they all received franchises for moon cheese... just for reporting on this issue.

Hi Ronald, how ya doing...:)

Better .. hope you are doing well and having some success with your barbeque franchise at the local banks... Get any bites while strutting around in your pink dress? 

That ought to be something to see... Phamplets in one hand, a Nazi Swastika band on your left arm, and hundreds of on lookers, all wanting nothing more than to do some CASH banking.

You forgot the pink dress...:) for you...:)

No... it's there.. the pink dress, you simply missed it... a little comprehension problem.  Forgetting the Pink Dress would be like a child forgetting St. Clause on Christmas Day... impossible.

We can correct that problem... with a couple of sessions of Dr. Nelson's insane compression treatments... only 999.99 per dip ... and no charge for the towels... soap extra. Lilac water is available on request. Phone ahead... don't be the last to experience this great innovation of medical science.

Maybe she can find a pink dress to wear...:)

 While they spy on churches...:)

No a Pink Dress won't help and neither will a Nazi Swastika.

Opinion vary...:)

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.

You don't get to interrupt me
