Now that the Mueller investigation is over, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the Obama administration spied on Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Trish Regan of the FOX Business Network recently did an excellent report on this topic:
Trish Regan: Obama’s intel ops may have been weaponized
The case against the Obama administration’s Department of Justice and the FBI is growing. The New York Times is now reporting that President Obama’s FBI sent an American spy to London in an attempt to gather damaging information on the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election.
The Times reports that a woman tried to infiltrate the campaign by trying to befriend George Papadopoulos.
If the New York Times’ reporting is solid, here’s what we then know: Attorney General William Barr says he is thinking spying during the 2016 campaigns did occur, and we also know that the FISA warrant against Carter Page was obtained by the FBI through the use of opposition research, which was bought and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and never verified by the FBI general counsel at the time, James Baker.
Meanwhile, Trump 2016 campaign adviser Michael Caputo tells us the FBI sent a spy to try to effectively entrap him.
Watch the video:
Even a former CIA official is now saying the Trump campaign was spied on.
The Hill reports:
Former CIA official on FBI’s 2016 actions: ‘I’d call that spying’
The FBI’s reported attempt to obtain information under false pretenses from former Trump campaign operative George Papadopoulos in 2016 constitutes spying, former CIA counter-intelligence chief James Olson told Hill.TV in an interview Monday.
“It does sound like spying,” Olson said, adding that “spying can take many different forms and the art of spying has evolved.”
He went on to say that “the old fashioned ways of misrepresenting yourselves or approaching someone under false pretenses is still kind of the tried and true — that sounds like what happened here.”
Olson’s remarks come after The New York Times reported last week that the FBI sent a government investigator to the London in September 2016 to meet with Papadopoulos under false pretenses as part of the agency’s initial probe into possible ties between the campaign and Moscow.
The woman reportedly worked with another U.S. government informant, Cambridge University professor Stefan Halper, to probe any possible knowledge Papadopoulos had of Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
It’s time to open another investigation in order to get to the bottom of this.
Republicans must demand it.
