1. IMPORTANT: Clapper throwing Obama under the bus is an extremely important development.
Remember, though: he ISN’T referring to the FISA fraud being exposed 24/7, or the Mueller clownshow.
The scandal Clapper’s referring to is MUCH worse than either. Some thoughts.
2. The FISA fraud being exposed is, without a doubt, the most shocking abuse of power in US history. The FBI/DOJ used unvetted info, by-passing strict Woods verification, to illegally obtain a Title I FISA warrant on an innocent US citizen.
It can’t get any worse. Or can it?
Why would they need to get a FISA TI, when they’d already been spying on Team Trump (and other GOP candidates, not to mention Sanders), since 2015?
They wouldn’t, right? Unless, of course, the aim was to use the FISA to legitimize EXISTING illegal spying.
This FISA fraud on @carterwpage is illegal, may end up destroying the FBI and will result in jail terms for those involved.
BUT it’s important not to keep our eyes off the larger scandal, that birthed it.
One leading directly to one man:
This power is restricted to targets OUTSIDE the US, communicating with persons INSIDE the US.
Stellar Wind went totally out of control, turbo-charged by NSAs PRISM Program, allowing the NSA to hoover up the explosion of data held by Google, Facebook & Yahoo (and others).
You should be.
Consider this. The SSO capability allowed it to collect data the equivalent of one Library of Congress – every 14.4 seconds.
And that was in 2006.
Snowden delivered a chilling warning, as well.
10. ‘The extent of mass data collection was far greater than the public knew and included what he characterized as “dangerous” and “criminal” activities.’
That was in 2014.
11. I’ve always been intrigued by this terrifying interview of the execrable Maxine Waters on Feb 11, 2013. In it she describes a secret database that Obama had built that’s ‘very, very powerful.’
12. SEPARATE from NSA.
Interviewer: ‘In terms of the ‘Organizing for America’ that he’s now shifting to become a 501C4 ?’
Waters: ‘That’s right..that database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it’s never been done before.’
But he would have HATED being spied on. I’m certain he built his own database.
A malign narcissist, the feeling of power, as well as the ability it gave him to manipulate and terrorize American citizens, would have been IRRESISTIBLE.
The Obama Administration Allegedly Spied on Pro-Israel Activists. Did They Do the Same to Trump? The accusation that the Obama administration used information gleaned from classified foreign surveillance to smear and blackmail its political opponents at home has gained new traction in recent day… https://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/229062/did-the
15. Obama was illegally spying on reporters, too, including James Rosen (FOX), Sharyl Attkisson, Sean Hannity, Sara Carter and no doubt hundreds of others.
When all is revealed (it needs to be), we could be talking about many THOUSANDS of US citizens, inc members of Congress.
There’s absolutely no doubt about it. Trump and Obama LOATHE each other. Obama would have been keen to target and if possible, destroy Trump.
The 2016 election would be a perfect opportunity.
I’m sure that Obama was paying friendly reporters to use the information he had, against Trump. BTW is Maggie Haberman back on twitter yet? Just askin’.
IMO, Clapper is NOT talking about FISA abuse of Carter Page. He’s talking about Obama’s illegal abuse of exec power under FISA, to order warrantless surveillance, away from any oversight, to frame Trump.
If I go down, Obama, YOU go down too.’
The greatest crime in American history.
Citizen Trump. Candidate Trump. POTUS-elect Trump. POTUS Trump.
It’s an ONGOING effort. One that is dangerous, but IS collapsing.
Those two would be AG Loretta Lynch – & who else?
Why, ODNI James Clapper.
Who is now DIRECTLY implicating one Barack Hussein Obama.
