If one is not a deaf political ideologue, questions can now be raised about the so-called Russian collusion. Recently, it was confirmed that during the course of the 2016 election, intelligence officials informed the campaign of wiretaps involving then-GOP nominee Donald Trump.
As factious as “I am shocked to see there is gambling in this establishment,” is anyone with common sense shocked by this revelation? Who would know better that this actually occurred than former Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook.
Mook made his comments on Fox News‘ “Fox & Friends.” He said the administration of former President Barack Obama purposefully and illegally bugged him and his associates last year. “There was a wiretap of Russian agents. Those Russian agents were communicating with Trump staff. That is why they were picked up,” Mook said.
He went on to say that the information obtained directly from the intelligence community and indirectly from media reports was widely known in Washington circles. And, surprise of all surprises; the Obama administration used a clearance from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) in 2016 to wiretap various Russian entities that it believed to be in contact with Trump associates.
This is not new. And this is just one account of what is now factual information supported by eyewitness and legal documents. So how did the Clinton campaign become privy to such secret information?
That was where Mook clammed-up with his Fox interviewer. But what Mook wouldn’t say, as not to become another tragic Hillary friend to die under strange circumstances, was this: This sort of illegal behavior cannot be condoned. It should involve prison time, but we all know that will never happen.
If indeed Obama authorized this practice, Mook was too terrified of his own personal consequences to say it. Who can blame him? Historically, it is very unhealthy to cross the Clintons, much less the Obamas.
Is there any chance the “investigating” liberal media will cover any of this? That is about as likely as a favorable story on the current president appearing anywhere close to page one. Their selective moral outrage does not cover this sort of topic.
But there is a bottom line to over a year of investigating Trump, legally and illegally. Not one shred of meaningful evidence has been uncovered to substantiate the collusion accusation. Not one iota of facts. But what does that matter, right?
