Obama Gave Spy Community New Powers Used To Sabotage Trump
The more information that continues to come out about the connections between former national security adviser Michael Flynn and members of the Russian government the more clear it becomes that this entire mess was set up by the Obama Administration.
PJ Media reported Wednesday afternoon on a previously written article from the New York Times that didn’t mean much at the time it was written but now is at the center of the illegal intelligence leaks that are going on in Washington D.C.
From The New York Times:
In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.
The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.
The change means that far more officials will be searching through raw data. Essentially, the government is reducing the risk that the N.S.A. will fail to recognize that a piece of information would be valuable to another agency, but increasing the risk that officials will see private information about innocent people.
PJ Media points out that the question that needs to be asked that no one is asking is: who was wiretapping the general?
From PJ Media:
The answer, we know now, was the National Security Agency, formerly known as No Such Agency, the nation’s foremost signals-intelligence (SIGINT) collection department.
Does anyone actually know what Flynn was talking to the Russian government about? Of course not, the mainstream media won’t report on it. Flynn was forced to resign because of the chaos and lies that have been created by the media over the simple fact that he was doing his job.
From The Daily Caller:
Flynn insisted that he crossed no lines in his telephone conversation with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak: “If I did, believe me, the FBI would be down my throat, my clearances would be pulled. There were no lines crossed.”
Flynn said there was a brief discussion of the 35 Russian diplomats who were being expelled by Obama in retaliation for Moscow’s alleged interference in the 2016 campaign.
“It wasn’t about sanctions. It was about the 35 guys who were thrown out,” Flynn said. “So that’s what it turned out to be. It was basically, ‘Look, I know this happened. We’ll review everything.’ I never said anything such as, ‘We’re going to review sanctions,’ or anything like that.”…
…The December conversation “was not to relieve sanctions. It was basically to say, ‘Look, we’re coming into office in a couple of weeks. Give us some time to take a look at everything.’”
All Mike Flynn did was take a proactive approach with Russia on the incoming Trump administration instead of waiting around for something to happen and then reacting, that’s called leadership.
NewsBusters reports that nearly all of the media attention has been on the alleged ‘White House Crisis’ while spending almost no time actually covering the information from the intelligence leaks.
