Default Re: Exclusive: US government wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman

Let me try to explain this.

Getting authorization for wiretapping by the feds is a BAD thing, not a 'good' thing.

Not sure how this is spun as a win for Trump. So he may have been tipped that the Trump towers were being tapped, that isn't something to brag about. It just means that once again, Trump associated himself with criminals.

New reports indicate that Mueller is now asking for Air Force One phone transcripts.

Not looking good for Trump and associates.

More likely Trump is a threat to their power structure and tried to find dirt on him.

Trump called it. Not only that, Obama knew about it, he had to. There's zero chance wiretapping someone as powerful as Mantafort gets approved without Obama knowing.

The funny part about all this is, the left was screaming 'Russia! Russia!' for months, and here we have one of the key figures in the investigation under surveillance for MONTHS before and after the election...

And what did they find?

Absolutely nothing. Shocking.

Why do people keep saying they found nothing.

We learned that Don Jr. et al took a meeting with Russians for the purpose of getting 'dirt on Hillary'.

THIS in itself is a felony and treasonous.

So lets not get it twisted, that is not the only example either.

This is not spin or opinion, this is fact.

This is NOT a felony and is NOT treasonous.

1. It's not a felony because it's not even illegal.

2. It's not treasonous because treason requires taking action against the country, not a private group like a political party or a private person like Hillary Clinton.

Getting dirt on a political opponent from a Russian lawyer is about as illegal as getting dirt from a Venezuelan beauty queen. It's not illegal at all.


Here's what absolutely would be illegal though. If any of the information from the Manafort wiretaps or the unmaskings were passed on to the Clinton campaign. I'm not saying that happened. If it did though, that would b an actual felony.

It's not.

At all.

As far as I have seen, only one candidate actually interacted with Russia, and it wasn't Trump.
