This past presidential election was like none other in U.S. history. Not only did it rewrite the rules of such things as campaign spending, polling, and “expert” predictions, it exposed the corruption and dishonesty of both the Democratic Party and the liberal media.
Trump’s win to the White House struck a fatal blow to decades of collusion between insider politicians, dishonest media, and the power-hunger deep state of intelligence agencies.
These entities were working together to undermine American citizens’ freedoms, deprive us of privacy, and create a Socialist-like society where the government controls every aspect of our lives.
As a populist leader, President Trump will dismantle much of the structure this cabal has built. He is already reducing the influence of the federal government through executive orders and is putting people in place who will respect the freedoms afforded to us by the Bill of Rights.
The backlash from the left has been fierce, though empty. Their biggest claim was that Russia helped Trump by hacking the democrats’ emails. This has been a big assertion, despite any evidence to prove it.
Yet Trump has turned the tables of the liberals’ biggest attack, by claiming President Obama illegally spied on his campaign during and after the election. The claims of wiretapping would be a shocking violation of Trump and his people’s Fourth Amendment Rights and would be cause for major upheavals within the political world.
But doesn’t his allegations hold water? It seems like the House thinks so.
The House Intelligence Committee has responded to Trump’s demand for an investigation. The Associated Press reported that House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) has agreed to include the alleged wiretapping in their investigation into any Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.
According to the New York Post, Nunes believed there was merit to checking into possible wiretapping activity:
“One of the focus points of the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation is the U.S. government’s response to actions taken by Russian intelligence agents during the presidential campaign.
As such, the Committee will make inquiries into whether the government was conducting surveillance activities on any political party’s campaign officials or surrogates, and we will continue to investigate this issue if the evidence warrants it.”
We know the Russia allegations were clearly inventions by the Clinton campaign, carried on by Obama and the liberal media. Any investigation will come up with nothing credible to back those claims.
However, so determined was Obama to discredit Trump’s amazing victory that we have no doubt he circumvented the law in order to find dirt on the Trump campaign. Obama had a terrible track record when it comes to spying on U.S. citizens. Thanks to Snowden, we know Obama’s NSA has been spying on our conversations for years.
Obama could have easily ordered illegal wiretappings of Trump’s phone calls, confident he’d either find connections with Russia. Clearly he found nothing, otherwise we’ve would have heard of it back in November. But the use of illegal wiretappings will since Obama and other officials, who can still be held accountable.
No doubt the House Intelligence Committee will uncover something significant. We just have to wait and see.
