ICYMI: Trump Confirms Obama Spied On His 2016 Campaign, Calls the Act 'Treasonous'

Linkedin Share

Barack Obama’s legacy will be that he was such a horrible president that he gave way to Donald Trump, a brash New Yorker with a big mouth. That’s gotta sting.

Nobody will care that Obama was the first black president. Obamacare may soon be a thing of the past if the Supreme Court does the right thing in the next year or so. So, what does Obama have besides Benghazi and capturing bin Laden? He’s got Trump. Check this out, via Washington Examiner:

President Trump has ratcheted up his claim that the Obama White House spied on his 2016 campaign, charging in a new book that it was a “treasonous” act by the former Democratic president.

“What they did was treasonous, OK? It was treasonous,” he told author Doug Wead for his upcoming book, “Inside Trump’s White House: The Real Story of His Presidency.”

Trump said, “The interesting thing out of all of this is that we caught them spying on the election. They were spying on my campaign. So you know? What is that all about?

He added, “I have never ever said this, but truth is, they got caught spying. They were spying. Obama.

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who worked in the Obama administration, recently said that Barack ordered the Trump-Russia spying operation.

That’s kind of a big deal.

Check this out…

ANDERSON COOPER, CNN HOST: The 2017 assessment that the President says he now agrees with, that was done while you and then NCI Director John Brennan were still in office. So, how can we reconcile the President attacking you, but apparently after a very long time finally, allegedly saying — or saying he allegedly agrees with the product of the intelligence community that you, yourself oversaw?

JAMES CLAPPER: Yes, well, this is — yes, as we’ve come to know the President, he is not a stalwart for a consistency or coherence. So it’s very hard to explain that. One point I’d like to make, Anderson, that I don’t think has come up very much before, and I’m alluding now to the President’s criticism of President Obama for all that he did or didn’t do before he left office with respect to the Russian meddling. If it weren’t for President Obama, we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set off a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today, notably, special counsel Mueller’s investigation.
