Rep Schiff and other Dems accusing Trump of Russian meddling are about to eat their words, now that it has been shown that Dem Idol Obama used foreign Intel to spy on the Trump Campaign.
“In July 2016, the Obama administration accepted unsolicited information from Alexander Downer, an Australian diplomat who just happened to have helped arrange a $25 million government donation to the Clinton Foundation years before. Downer said that he had witnessed a Trump campaign aide, George Papadopoulos, bragging about some dirt that the Russians supposedly had on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Though Downer’s claim was reported two-plus months after the alleged event, and was only hearsay gathered at a London tavern, the Obama administration gave it to the FBI which, in turn, thought it was weighty enough to justify opening a counterintelligence case against the lawfully elected Republican nominee for president.
“In October 2016, less than three weeks from Election Day, the Obama Justice Department approved a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to spy on the Trump campaign through its former adviser, Carter Page. The primary evidence supporting the warrant? A dossier written by a foreign friendly named Christopher Steele, a retired MI6 intelligence agent from Great Britain. Of course, the Justice Department and the FBI forgot to tell the courts that Steele actually was working on behalf of the Clinton campaign, but that’s a small detail for the purpose of this column.
I am surprised The Hill covered this. The MSM is constantly accusing Trump of colluding with the Russians, now would this be referred to as Australian and British meddling?
Dems went nuts over Trump possibly getting some intel from Russia about Hillary. But I guess Obama gets a pass because he is a Dem. Talk about hypocrisy… The GOP could go after Obama, but then again they actually want to do their jobs, unlike the Dems who are wasting time and money continuing the witch hunt against Trump.
