The Mueller inquiry, which the left has been heavily relying on, is finding itself more and more compromised as new and damaging revelations about FBI activity continue to leak out.
Trump correctly notes this is bigger than Watergate:
President Trump on Thursday touted a report saying the FBI under former President Obama spied on the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential race, saying that the revelation could be “bigger than Watergate.”
“Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI ‘SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN IMBEDDED INFORMANT,'” the president tweeted in reference to a National Review report published last week.
“Andrew McCarthy says, ‘There’s probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign.’ If so, this is bigger than Watergate!”
The report alleges that Obama-led agencies used their surveillance powers to monitor the Trump campaign.
This is not the first time that the Obama administration has been accused of spying on the Trump campaign.
The left has spent the last year insisting that the Trump campaign was never spied upon and that anyone who thought it was is a delusional conspiracy theorist. Obviously, this is no longer operative, so we’ll see them default rapidly to the fallback position, which is “Trump must have done something super-awful to be spied upon!”
I think at this point, the only thing really left to be revealed is how coordinated all of this was. I can certainly see a group of corrupt lefties working together across agencies informally to unseat Trump. Social justice warriors are religious fanatics, after all.
But I think it’s far more likely that we’re about to discover that this was ordered by Obama and likely was coordinated among multiple agencies, and MI-6 may have even assisted the Obama government. The MI-6 tie, if it turns out to be real, raises very uncomfortable questions about our relationship with Britain and with the Theresa May government.
The Bush tie makes me wonder how many of the #NeverTrumpers were peripherally aware of what was going on. It would look very bad if the supposed “small government, principled conservatives” were aware of these kinds of dirty tactics and keeping quiet. It would explain the maniacal Trump hatred from them that they’ve never given up on as well.
We also need to find out what other Republican campaigns were being spied upon. I would be very unsurprised if Ted Cruz was also the victim of this kind of surveillance.
