'Bigger Than Watergate', Trump Slams Obama Admin's "Unprecedented" Actions

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 

By Tyler Durden  /  ZeroHedge

President Trump took a break from confirming his intent to retaliate for years of unfair-trade-deals with America’s so-called ‘allies’, to return to another topic that is as existentially-threatening to the status quo as globalists would have us believe Trump’s trade war ideals will be.

That topic is the Obama administration’s efforts to discredit Trump’s 2016 campaign, via investigation, while also failing to act on Russian efforts to influence the election.

“Why did the Obama Administration start an investigation into the Trump Campaign (with zero proof of wrongdoing) long before the Election in November?” Trump tweeted.

“Wanted to discredit so Crooked H would win. Unprecedented. Bigger than Watergate! Plus, Obama did NOTHING about Russian meddling,” he continued.

The tweet was a continuation of Trump’s argument that the FBI under Obama was out to get him. Trump has repeatedly said his campaign did not collude with Russia, which intelligence officials believe meddled in the election with the goal of helping Trump and hurting Clinton.

The Hill points out that Trump has previously claimed the Obama administration “did nothing” to stop Russian election interference, particularly after special counsel Robert Mueller filed charges against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian organizations for their role in the meddling. Obama issued sanctions against Russia for the meddling after U.S. intelligence officials said they had found evidence that the country had hacked U.S. groups and leaked emails in an effort to influence the 2016 vote.

Trump is not alone in his perspective, as The Hill reports that even some Democrats have acknowledged the Obama administration could have taken a more forceful stance to oppose Russian meddling. Ex-Obama administration officials, including Vice President Joe Biden, have said they did not want to take action that would make it appear they favored one candidate over the other.

      Meanwhile, Trump was paying off porn star queens. I just think we didn’t have a choice as far as voting for president last time around. I mean what is a choice between Trump and Crooked Hillary? Not much. When Trum said, “let’s take the guns first and worry about the rest later”, this should have given the Trumptards a clue but even this comment went right over their head. You could actually call Trump “Donald Clinton” at this point in time. :eek:

      Now theres a question. Why didn’t the FBI and Obama act when they suspected Russia was interferring with elections, why wait until after? Did Obama let Russia interfere because he wanted Hillary to lose? No I doubt he did but its still fun to wind people up and make them look stupid in the process.
