Wall Street Journal Calls for Obama Admin to be Held to Account for ‘Historic Abuse of Government Surveillance Powers’

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

The Russia collusion hoax was not just an attempted coup but a diversionary tactic to divert attention away from the high crimes and treasonous acts at the highest echelons of the Democrat party. It’s time for real rule of law. The Democrat elite must face justice.

WSJ: Time for Obama Admin to Account for ‘Historic Abuse of Government Surveillance Powers’  

By: Dr. Susan Berry, Breitbart 25 Mar 2019:
Wall Street Journal assistant editor James Freeman and Sen. Rand Paul are on the same page: the Mueller report confirms it is now time for the Obama administration to account for its flagrant abuse of the surveillance powers of the federal government.

While Democrats and other members of the “Resistance” flail about in the wake of news the Robert Mueller investigation did not find evidence that President Donald Trump’s campaign “conspired or coordinated” with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election, Freeman observed Monday the report confirms it is former President Barack Obama who “owes the country an explanation” for his administration’s “historic abuse of government surveillance powers.”

Freeman wrote:

The Mueller report confirms that the Obama administration, without evidence, turned the surveillance powers of the federal government against the presidential campaign of the party out of power. This historic abuse of executive authority was either approved by President Barack Obama or it was not. It’s time for Mr. Obama, who oddly receives few mentions in stories about his government’s spying on associates of the 2016 Trump campaign, to say what he knew and did not know about the targeting of his party’s opponents.

Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, similarly tweeted it is “time to investigate the Obama officials who concocted and spread the Russian conspiracy hoax!”

Freeman elaborated that it is difficult to imagine, if aware of the scheme, Obama would not have been interested in his Justice Department’s plans to seek information obtained through wiretaps on the Trump campaign.

“Going all the way back to his campaign for a U.S. Senate seat in Illinois, Mr. Obama had aggressively advocated for preventing federal abuse of surveillance powers,” he explained, noting that Obama had decried the USA Patriot Act in 2004 for using the war against terrorism to violate U.S. citizens’ civil liberties.

“It’s time for this lawyer and alleged passionate defender of the Bill of Rights to explain the actions of his overzealous and overreaching executive branch,” Freeman asserted. “If he didn’t find out about the wiretapping until after the fact, when exactly did he learn about it and how did he respond?”

Suggesting that Obama has never shown indication of having bought into the Trump collusion conspiracy theory, Freeman wrote the question  “is why he endorsed or allowed the use of federal surveillance tools against the party out of power – a direct threat to the democratic process that is at the heart of our country’s greatness.”

“Mr. Obama might have room to deny any knowledge of the details of the surveillance abuses, given the story his FBI director told Congress—if anybody could believe that story,” Freeman doubted, and ultimately drew the conclusion that “the absolute bare minimum that Mr. Obama owes this country is an explanation of the actions of his government in spying on a presidential campaign.”

    Nobody charged, arrested, or jailed after 2 years of phony investigation and 8 years of usurpation by a darn Negro. :arrow: :neutral:

    In spite of all the felony criminal charges against Obama and his criminal associates, there is one thing that still protects him…..his skin color.

    The opposition party fears one thing….being called RACIST. That single charge keeps them in deep freeze with fear.

    The sad funny thing about all of this is that he’s NOT Af-Am…he’s 100% Indonesian. He’s only pretending to be ”black” to game the system.

    When he went to Grade School in Indonesia, his registered name was Barry Soetoro. Researchers find that he’s STILL a citizen of Indonesia.
