ICYMI, PDT this weekend accused outgoing POTUS Barack Obama of spying on him, which the Democrat Media Complex was quick to deny on Obama’s behalf. No way would ex-President Boyfriend ever do such a thing, and Trump was deranged for even suggesting it.
What is the standard of proof the Democrats are demanding to back up the allegation that Obama spied on Trump. Follow up question: What is the standard of proof Democrats used to conclude as fact that Russia hacked the election to install Trump as his puppet so Soviet tanks can roll down Main Street and take over our precious bodily fluids because it’s 1956 and the Red Menace is back again, baby?
Bear in mind, this is Barack Obama we are talking about. This is a guy who won his senate seat because his political operatives got a judge to release salacious details from an opponent’s divorce records. This is a guy who vastly expanded NSA spying and lied to Congress about the extent of it. This is a guy who used Federal agencies like the EPA and the IRS against his political opponents. This is a guy whose White House operation admitted to manipulating the press with propaganda so that his administration could help a hostile foreign Government access billions in American taxpayer dollars. This is a guy who used Government intelligence agencies to spy on journalists.
So, yeah, using Government Intelligence agencies to spy on a political opponent would be entirely consistent with Obama’s history and modus operandi.
The Democrat Media Narrative hangs on a narrow, technical definition of “wiretap” (physically implanting a listening device on a telephone landline, which is almost never done anymore because who uses landlines) to provide Obama an out. But was Donald Trump under surveillance by the Obama administration; it’s highly plausible.
