White House says Trump stands by claim Obama wiretapped him

128 posts in this topic

This is all just insane and the interview with Carlson Tucker and Trump on Fox was simply the ramblings of a madman.

 

Regarding the wire tapping - just the start!

 

Quote

TRUMP:  Well, I've been reading about things.  I read in, I think it was January 20 a "New York Times" article where they were talking about wiretapping.  There was an article, I think they used that exact term.  I read other things.  I watched your friend Bret Baier the day previous where he was talking about certain very complex sets of things happening, and wiretapping.  I said, wait a minute, there's a lot of wiretapping being talked about.  I've been seeing a lot of things.

Now, for the most part, I'm not going to discuss it, because we have it before the committee and we will be submitting things before the committee very soon that hasn't been submitted as of yet.  But it's potentially a very serious situation.

 

CARLSON:  So, 51,000 people retweeted that.  So a lot of people thought that was plausible, they believe you, you're the President -- you're in charge of the agencies.  Every intelligence agency reports to you.  Why not immediately go to them and gather evidence to support that?

 

TRUMP:  Because I don't want to do anything that's going to violate any strength of an agency.  We have enough problems

Read the transcript here, you have to scroll down a bit for the wire tapping insanity, but the rest of the interview is just as insane. WHEN will they impeach this buffoon?

If you took out the name Trump and just read this as any old interview, you would conclude quickly that the person being interviewed had mental problems.

You don't have to look far to work out why Trump hates Obama

........and the Circus keeps performing.   Well there is one thing, I get a good laugh when I read about it all......I wonder when the US are going to get a president rather than a little school boy who keeps throwing tantrums because he is top of the class.  

When I, as a non american was being force fed it everyday on the news, I thought he might do some good....now I am starting to thing maybe the US is going from world leader to world comedy act :coffee1:

Now saying it was the British GCHQ who bugged him... :cheesy::cheesy::cheesy:

 

What next??? The Irish Government sent in leprechauns to plant bugs...

 

What worries me the he has access to state secrets and will just spout anything out on Twitter or of the cuff during a press conference or TV interview, he is a bigger liability than Edward Snowden.

I can't help feeling that continually forcing the CIA and FBI to respond to/investigate these paranoid fantasies is not a smart move for a President  who wants to remain in power.

That depends. It's a distraction from real stuff about him. He isn't a man to quit without a fight. Even if does get to impeachment time, I wouldn't put it past him to try to incite a civil war. His people have guns. 

I know everyone is saying he's crazy, and I have as well. But maybe he's more EVIL than crazy.

"There is no question that there were surveillance techniques used throughout this," Spicer said.

This idiot is guaranteed a job for the next four years. He surely "heels" for his master. Feed him some more Purina dog chow.

Who else in their right mind would want that job after they see how Spicer has degraded himself?

We live in desperate times. Trump needs a mouth piece that can dodge anything from questions of truth to maybe flying shoes in the future. Experience is toughening his skin and I am sure he plays mantra tapes under his pillow each night to fall asleep by. The new term "alternate truth" always gives him a way out.

I heard something yesterday that rings true and scary. It was from Schumer who said something like the big thing he's worried about is if in the public mind the New York Times and alt right troll site Breitbart are widely seen as equally credible media sources.

If that happens, say goodbye to American democracy, the constitution, the rule of law, the whole ball of wax.

It could definitely happen. 

American democracy was much more fragile than most people thought. We didn't think such an evil movement could rise in the USA, we were supposed to better than that. Apparently not.

Actually, it does seem like Trump (or his boss Bannon) is intent upon elevating alt right media to mainstream legitimacy.  This is what I really don't get about Trump.  Does he really believe this stuff he reads in alt right media?  There are certainly disenfranchised (and nutty) people who believes this stuff...but none of them are President of the United States.  This is what's going to be interesting in the coming weeks/months, does the American system really work?  That is, the checks and balances, separation of power, freedom of the press, the Constitution, COMMON SENSE, etc.  If Trump wins, America loses...big time.

Yes, the patriotic thing now is the hope for (and actively work for) trump to FAIL. Assuming trump doesn't change his stripes which is an assumption with about a 100 percent chance of being accurate.

Well, not the FBI but British Intelligence...yeah, that's it...British Intelligence. Have to pick someone that Congress can't investigate.

 

Sean Spicer just suggested that Obama used British intelligence to spy on Trump. Not so much.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-cage/wp/2017/03/16/sean-spicer-just-suggested-that-obama-used-british-intelligence-to-spy-on-trump-not-so-much/?

 

GCHQ usually don't respond to these stupid allegations but for Trump they have made an exception

 

“Recent allegations made by media commentator judge Andrew Napolitano about GCHQ being asked to conduct ‘wiretapping’ against the then president-elect are nonsense,” a GCHQ spokesperson said in a statement. “They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored.”

 

Of course that won't stop Trump spouting his made up rubbish.  How on earth is this man still allowed to be President?

It has now been announced that the White House has said it will no longer continue with it's claims that GCHQ wiretapped Trump and have APOLOGISED! Twice!  It is indefensible just what Trump is saying, he is a disgrace to the American people.

Perhaps Trump and his advisers are working on assumption. Reasonable, given the fact that both Obama and the NSA/CIA, et al, and Cameron and GCHQ, were caught with their frillies around their ankles.

I don't know about that. The NSA eavesdropping was a disgrace, and GCHQ were more than just complicit in that episode, yet they got away with a tap on the wrist - with a feather duster.

Yes, it stands to reason that Obama ordered the NSA/CIA/Brits to spy on Trump because....Benghazi!

'... a GCHQ spokesperson said in a statement. “They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored.”' This from a representative of the British fount of all honesty and ethics. GCHQ is no more to be trusted than the politicians they serve, or any other politician.

They were caught out spying on foreign leaders. You seriously believe they would think twice about spying on 'local politicians' if they could see some benefit in doing so?

It's actually legal to spy on foreign leaders.

Well spotted!  That is what spy agencies are there for.  Spying on local wannabe politicians? Nah.  Anyway the White House has been in contact with both  GCHQ and Downing Street and have admitted that they had no evidence whatsoever and they were wrong to make the accusations.

I stopped reading many of these US political threads because of the large number of Thaivisa, Sean Hannity wannabes who would come out in force to attack any viewpoints other than that espoused by Fox News.

 

Where have they all gone?  Is there a "Sorry I got it all wrong" thread where they can distance themselves from the raving loony they helped put in the most important job in the world?

They have gone to the same place where the vocal Junta lovers have gone.But perhaps they are the same people.The remorseless progress of history has a habit of catching up as it did to the Neanderthals.
