For two years, the political world has been focused on the Mueller investigation.
The media had been waiting with bated breath for the conclusions of the Mueller report.
They were absolutely sure that Mueller was going to prove that Trump had worked with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton.
However, they were severely disappointed. Mueller found no evidence that Trump was a puppet of Vladimir Putin.
Now the tables are being turned.
Attorney General William Barr testified in front of Congress yesterday that he intended to look into whether Barack Obama’s administration spied on the Trump campaign in 2016.
Barr told the lawmakers that he “believed spying had occurred.”
He then told the committee that he was “preparing to review ‘both the genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign,’ including improper spying by American intelligence agencies.”
This has been a long time coming. There is far more information that points towards nefarious activity on the part of the Obama administration and DNC than the Trump campaign.
The attorney general said that he “will work with FBI director, Christopher A. Wray, to examine the origins of the bureau’s counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign and that he would soon set up a team for that effort.”
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is leading the charge for an Obama investigation in the Senate. Graham has called for the attorney general to appoint a special counsel to determine whether the
Obama administration unlawfully obtained a warrant to spy on a Trump official as a way to help Hillary Clinton.
Graham is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He has said he is prepared to hold hearings on the topic. He told reporters: “What makes sense to me is that all of the abuse by the
Department of Justice and the FBI, the unprofessional conduct, the shady behavior — nobody seems to think that’s much important. Well, that’s going to change, I hope.”
It is time for Barack Obama to be asked what he knew. It is inconceivable that a sitting president had no idea that a major intelligence investigation was being conducted against the Republican nominee for president.
Let’s review how the witch hunt began.
Hint: It wouldn’t have been possible without the Hillary Clinton campaign and Obama administration.
The Clinton campaign is the only campaign from 2016 that colluded with foreign agents. This has been documented. Her campaign paid Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Trump.
Christopher Steele — a British MI6 investigator — made up bogus claims of collusion between Trump and Russia.
The FBI used this dossier to file for a FISA warrant to investigate the Trump campaign, via Carter Page. That is where the Obama administration comes into the story.
Keep in mind that Page has never been charged with any crime.
If you believe this, the Left calls you a “conspiracy nut.”
That is what they did to conservative radio and TV host Mark Levin. Levin accused the intelligence agencies of staging a “silent coup” against the president of the United States.
He was laughed out of town and made fun of by people on both the Right and the Left. He simply pieced together reporting done by the mainstream media — the same people that were calling him a conspiracy loon.
However, two years later … it looks like Levin may have been right all along.
It’s about time that the Justice Department investigates the prior administration. It is refreshing to see an attorney general who is actually doing his job.
William Barr is off to a good start in his position.
