It goes without saying that conservatives and their Sean Hannity media megaphones hated Barack Obama with a passion, and now realize that his administration facilitated and orchestrated a smear attack on the GOP candidate for President.
For instance, the Daily Caller was all over the case today with even more inflammatory detail from a former U.S. Attorney and two White House National Security Council (NSC) veterans:
Former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice ordered U.S. spy agencies to produce “detailed spreadsheets” of legal phone calls involving Donald Trump and his aides when he was running for president, according to former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova.
“What was produced by the intelligence community at the request of Ms. Rice were detailed spreadsheets of intercepted phone calls with unmasked Trump associates in perfectly legal conversations with individuals,” diGenova told The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group Monday.
“The overheard conversations involved no illegal activity by anybody of the Trump associates, or anyone they were speaking with,” diGenova said. “In short, the only apparent illegal activity was the unmasking of the people in the calls.”
Col. (Ret.) James Waurishuk, an NSC veteran and former deputy director for intelligence at the U.S. Central Command, told the Daily Caller News Foundation’s (DCNF) that many hands had to be involved throughout the Obama administration to launch such a political spying program.
“We’re looking at a potential constitutional crisis from the standpoint that we used an extremely strong capability that’s supposed to be used to safeguard and protect the country,” he said. “And we used it for political purposes by a sitting president. That takes on a new precedent.”
Michael Doran, former NSC senior director, told the DCNF Monday that “somebody blew a hole in the wall between national security secrets and partisan politics.” This “was a stream of information that was supposed to be hermetically sealed from politics and the Obama administration found a way to blow a hole in that wall,” he said.
“That’s a felony,” he told the DCNF. “And you can get 10 years for that. It is a tremendous abuse of the system. We’re not supposed to be monitoring American citizens. Bigger than the crime, is the breach of public trust.”
Senator Rand Paul pointed the finger at Susan Rice. And now that Obama’s fingerprints are all over the Deep State’s 2016 election intrusions, there is an opening for junior GOP legislators to follow Senator Paul’s brilliant lead.
