Columnist Says Obama Spying Scandal Will Make Watergate Seem Small

There is mounting evidence that Obama and his team not only unmasked members of Trump’s team but also spied on them electronically. While the media has been trying to make a case against Trump since election day, it’s starting to look like Obama and his people are the real scandal.

Wayne Allyn Root writes at the Los Angeles Times:

COMMENTARY: Looming Obamagate will make Watergate look like a misdemeanor

An ancient Chinese philosopher once said, “May you live in interesting times.” Congratulations, we’ve hit the jackpot.

We are in the beginning phase of Obamagate. This is our generation’s Watergate. Except far worse.

Here’s a refresher course for those too young to remember. Watergate was the biggest scandal in modern political history. Republican President Richard Nixon desperately wanted to know what Democrats were planning for their 1972 presidential campaign against him. He ordered a team of trusted aides to spy on them. They literally broke into the offices of the Democrat National Committee inside the Watergate Building. That was the beginning of the end for Nixon.

But today no one needs to physically break into an office to spy on a political rival. All you have to do is use the high-tech electronic power of government. A corrupt president can use the government to listen in on anyone, anytime.

The media and liberal critics went ballistic when Donald Trump tweeted in March that Barack Obama spied on him. CNN tweeted, “Trump’s baseless wiretap claim” and, “Trump just flat-out lied about wiretapping.” Well guess who was right? Trump — again.

Read the whole thing.

Would it really be so hard to believe that Obama’s team would do anything to keep Trump from winning? They knew it would be the end of their power and influence.
