Sources: DOJ report does not confirm Trump's wiretap claim

Two government officials told CNN Friday evening that the classified report the Justice Department delivered to House and Senate investigators does not confirm President Donald Trump's allegations that President Barack Obama wiretapped him during the campaign.

 

 

Trump is a fool and a liar.  Sad there's no way to get rid of him.

How much is Sean Spicer getting paid in order to stand up in front of the world every day and be a fool? His press briefing the other morning left me speechless.

Also known as comical Ali or Baghdad Bob. LOL  Great comparison.  Gotta love these quotes.  Maybe this is where Trump gets his inspiration from? 

 

Just found this.  What a hoot.

Sean Spicer = Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf?

 

Do you remember Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf?

 

Perhaps not by formal name, but "Baghdad Bob" became known for his statements on behalf of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and Iraq's Ba'ath Party.  You'll probably remember his daily press briefings in Baghdad during the 2003 Iraq War.  Among his claims:  U.S. soldiers were committing suicide "by the hundreds" outside the Iraqi capital.  And then, famously, his claim that no American tanks had entered Baghdad, when - in reality - they were very close to the place from which he was speaking.

.............

Well, when watching new White House press secretary Sean Spicer over the weekend, and again Monday, it suddenly occurred to me:  This guy risks becoming the Trump Administration's equivalent of Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf, good ole' "Baghdad Bob"!

Poor, spoilt old Donald Chump wouldn't shake Angela Merkel's hand, shaking his head and refusing to do so when asked. The man is an absolute embarrassment, not to mention being a racist, misogynist and only averagely intelligent and I'm being kind with that remark …………….

 

Not only that we all know that he is a liar by all that has gone before and this really takes the cake, "even as Donald Trump spoke about ‘buying American and hiring American’, at least eight shipments of Ivanka Trump-branded clothes, shoes and bags (more than 53.5 tonnes) were steaming towards American ports from China".

 

Seems like there is one rule for the rich and one for the poor which could explain why he wants to cut corporate tax and repeal the Dodd Frank act, which was put in place to oversee financial institutions so that another repeat of the 2008 GFC can't occur through "financial engineering" by Wall Street financial institutions.

 

He hasn't a clue and he hasn't the brains to be president of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Association let alone of the USA.

 

What is the world coming to……………..?

Comey Confirms F.B.I. Investigation of Russian Election Interference, Links to Trump Campaign

 

"The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, publicly confirmed an investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election

and whether associates of the president were in contact with Moscow."

 

"Mr. Comey also said the F.B.I. had “no information” to support President Trump’s allegation that Barack Obama wiretapped him."

 

"The F.B.I. is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible links between the Trump campaign

and the Russian government — and whether there was any coordination, Mr. Comey said."

NSA Director Agrees It's 'Ridiculous' To Accuse British Of Helping Wiretap Trump

 

"NSA Director Adm. Mike Rogers agreed Monday that it was “utterly ridiculous” to allege that his agency's British counterpart, GCHQ, helped former President Barack Obama eavesdrop on Donald Trump during the election."

 

"The White House has surfaced reports to that effect in the past few weeks in order to back up the President’s unfounded assertion that Obama ordered a wiretap of Trump Tower, leading it to eventually issue a formal apology to the British government."

 

"Rogers said no such thing occurred, and that “it would be expressly against the construct of the Five Eyes [intelligence] agreement that’s been in place for decades” to ask the United Kingdom to help spy on American civilians."

Utterly ridiculous.

As is having this incompetent clown as President.

Funny thing I noted in the news: Trump apparently stopped using his unsecured Android phone to send tweets. Now uses an iPhone, people believe this is to increase security.

There is no need to wiretap when there already is a smartphone in the room, right?

Maybe Trump got some advice from Merkel on the matter, lol.

                As long as Trump continues his one-man crusade to bad-mouth Obama based on lies, he's succeeding in diverting some attention away from the probe into his and his buddies' law-breaking and possible treason.   I guess in that way, Trump is smart.

 

          While listening to the FBI/NSA congressional hearing last night on a Youtube live-stream, I noticed some of the live-streaming of commentary on the right column.  Hundreds of comments per minute.  Many of them die-hard Trump supporters, who (probably no surprise) are busy attacking anyone/everyone seeking truth.  

 

                 This will likely end badly for the US, with armed violence in the streets.   Trump fans have most of the guns and will enjoy opportunities to use them.  They're the type of folks who cheer an old white man taking a flying blindsided sucker punch at a young black man who was being forcefully escorted from a Trump rally with guards holding him on each arm.  To put it another way:  Similar to how Trump won the election by playing dirty, Trump fans will want to win battles in the streets by playing dirty.   Not a pretty picture for Trump's America.

I wonder what mental trapeze work Spicer et al will perform to try and throw a smokescreen over these damning findings.

 

It is hard to think of a period of American government so chaotic, so immersed in controversy, so polarising as this one. And he was only inaugurated in January!

 

In my view this poisonous administration may very well try and cook up a military confrontation to divert the nation's critical eye from this raft of lies, incompetence, corruption and arrogance. I hate to say it but I think it would be a tempting move for the narcissistic POTUS and the various "Dr Evil's" guiding him.

I watched yesterday a movie AmeriGeddon. Didn't know what to expect. 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4059702/

It was quite horrible, but I wanted to watch it until end as it gave a glimpse of alt-right mentality.. US government having a plot with United Nations to kill most of the human population, starting from the US. Snowflakes stupid, preppers and para-military groups good and smart.. 

I thought there were just few loonies out there, but if they now have own movies, I guess there is more support than I initially thought.

What I do find funny about all these 'leaks' and 'wire tapping' is a factor that nobody in the US has even discussed yet. For 650K USD I can buy an extremely good GSM Interceptor and I can sit in a car, a hotel room and intercept away. Most companies only sell these interceptors to government and law enforcement agencies but there are a few countries that make very good high tech systems that are only interested in your dollars not your credentials. Consequently many many news organisations around the world have them, some individuals use them, specialists requiring trading information use them. They are all illegal but so what. London is swarming with them so why not New York? With one of those you can get any info you want from any call and 'leak' it to anyone.

 

There are also a number of software trojans that can be used to take all the information from a phone including calls. You just need the owner of a device to open a message or email or download certain apps  (all of you with flashlight apps, check it and ask why it is 30mb! when you only need 256kbs to turn on your flash light - clue there is more in the app than you bargained for!! ) There will be no audit trail for the Republican hunt for the leakers to follow. The leakers in this case may not even be Government.

Fox benches Andrew Napolitano over wiretapping claim

 

"Fox News Channel has pulled legal analyst Andrew Napolitano from the air after disavowing his on-air claim that British intelligence officials had helped former President Barack Obama spy on Donald Trump."

 

"Napolitano’s report last week on “Fox & Friends,” saying he had three intelligence sources who said Obama went “outside the chain of command” to watch Trump, provoked an international incident."

 

"Fox’s Shepard Smith, on the air Friday afternoon, quickly walked the network away from Napolitano’s claim.

“Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now-president of the United States was surveilled at any time, in any way,” Smith said."

A benched judge. :laugh:

"Legal analyst" my ass...

 

Fox and Friends; the Clown in Chief's favorite show and his source for "news".

What's the biggest lie Trump has told in the past 20 months?  Hard to say, because there've been so many whoppers.   If the following is not the biggest lie, it definitely gets honorable (or dishonorable) mention:

 

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . >>>>>    "I PICK THE BEST PEOPLE"   <<<<<

 

            When Trump publicly says something ridiculous like that, he will put both his hands up, index fingers pointed upward, and his eyes will half close - to emphasize what a marvelously insightful person he is.

 

                 Let's see who the 'best people' are, in Trump's estimation:  Along with unquestioning loyalty to Trump, every one of them has to lie.  Those are the top 2 job requirements.   Nearly every one of his 'best people' are involved with Putin/Russian agents in some nefarious ways - to the detriment of the USA.  The list goes on.

 

              Trump insiders never tire of mentioning how Trump 'TRUMP VALUES LOYALTY.'

Yet, the past two days, Spicer and others have been distancing Trump from many of his former close associates.  Manafort was Trump's campaign manager for awhile, but now Trump and his sheeple are acting like they barely ever knew him.  

 

                 During the campaign, when Trump was asked about David Duke, he said he didn't know who he was or anything about him.   Yet months earlier, Trump was gushing with opinions about The Grand Wizard of the KKK.   Similar with Putin.   Half of the 30 public comments Trump has made about Putin, he says what a great guy he is, and how they've met and get along great (and he's a better leader than Obama).   The other half of the times, Trump acts like he barely knows anything about Putin and that they've never met.
