(National Sentinel) Corrupt: As POTUS Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump took their seats next to the Obamas at the late President George H. W. Bush’s funeral at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., I was frankly perplexed when I saw the Trumps shaking hands with their predecessors.
I say that because it became very obvious a long time ago that former President Barack Obama is responsible for approving and overseeing “Spygate” — the biggest political scandal in the history of our republic. He can deny it all he wants, but there was no way the corrupt Deep State actors in the FBI, Justice Department, and U.S. intelligence community were going to launch a spying operation against a rival presidential campaign without the explicit approval of the sitting commander-in-chief.
In fact, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has admitted as much in a roundabout way.
On Friday, government watchdog Judicial Watch, which has done yeoman’s work in exposing much of this scandal, brought new details to light:
Judicial Watch today released two sets of heavily redacted State Department documents, 38 pages and 48 pages, showing classified information was researched and disseminated to multiple U.S. Senators by the Obama administration immediately prior to President Donald Trump’s inauguration. The documents reveal that among those receiving the classified documents were Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Sen. Robert Corker (R-TN).
Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a June 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department after it failed to respond to a February 2018 request seeking records of the Obama State Department’s last-minute efforts to share classified information about Russia election interference issues with Democratic Senator Ben Cardin.
All three senators are anti-Trumpists who have gone out of their way to continue undermining our president and thwarting his agenda, Corker included (though he’s retiring and has been replaced by a Trumpist, Sen.-elect Marsha Blackburn).
Specifically, JW said, “the documents reveal the Obama State Department urgently gathering classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.”
What’s the significance of this?
“These documents show remarkable evidence of the non-stop, unethical effort in the Obama State Department to gather and send its own dossier of classified information on Russia in an effort to discredit the incoming Trump administration,” JW president Tom Fitton said.
According to a March 2017 report in the Baltimore Sun: “Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin received classified information about Russia’s involvement in elections when the Obama administration was attempting to disseminate that material widely across the government in order to aid in future investigations, according to a report Wednesday … Obama officials were concerned, according to the report [in The New York Times], that the Trump administration would cover up intelligence once power changed hands.”
Actually, we now know that Obama himself changed the rules on classified “Russia” information days before POTUS Trump’s inauguration so that it would be disseminated as much of this information to as many people as possible with the intent that it would leak (and it did), thus laying the groundwork for Spygate’s “Russian collusion” narrative.
As The Intercept reported:
The new rules allow employees doing intelligence work for those agencies to sift through raw data collected under a broad, Reagan-era executive order that gives the NSA virtually unlimited authority to intercept communications abroad. Previously, NSA analysts would filter out information they deemed irrelevant and mask the names of innocent Americans before passing it along.
Remember the “unmasking” portion of this scandal?
Now that Democrats are taking over control of the House in a few weeks, Republicans will lose their ability to continue probing the various tentacles of Spygate, which are long and numerous. Investigations will instead focus on the Trump presidency so that we may learn vital, nation-saving details such as how much the president has paid in taxes and how many global business ventures he undertook with Vladimir Putin.
Meanwhile, the president’s “Justice” Department remains neutered, co-opted by the Deep State, and focused like Democrats on him. — J. D. Heyes
