Another Internet sleuth (REX) put together some more pieces to Spygate over the weekend. The sleuth’s analysis shows that Obama’s Spygate scandal started much earlier than expected and Deep State leaks support this claim.
On April 13, 2017, the far left Guardian posted an article about Trump and Russia collusion that began by making a couple now key assertions,
1) British spies played a crucial role in the Trump – Russia conspiracy
2) Trump – Russia scandal began in at least 2015
3) The UK was involved
4) The UK and US worked together for the next six months
Via The Guardian:
Britain’s spy agencies played a crucial role in alerting their counterparts in Washington to contacts between members of Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russian intelligence operatives, the Guardian has been told.
GCHQ first became aware in late 2015 of suspicious “interactions” between figures connected to Trump and known or suspected Russian agents, a source close to UK intelligence said. This intelligence was passed to the US as part of a routine exchange of information, they added.
Over the next six months, until summer 2016, a number of western agencies shared further information on contacts between Trump’s inner circle and Russians, sources said.
GCHQ is the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) is an intelligence and security organisation in the UK.
[It’s unknown who in the Trump campaign was even remotely linked to Russia in 2015. General Flynn visited Moscow in December 2015 but this was no reason to spy on President Trump.]
After noting that Germany, Poland, Estonia, Australia, the Dutch and the French were all involved in the scandal and passing information on to the [Obama Administration in the] US, the Guardian article pointed out that the UK spy agency was at no point carrying out a targeted operation against Trump or his team or proactively seeking information. –
It is understood that GCHQ was at no point carrying out a targeted operation against Trump or his team or proactively seeking information. The alleged conversations were picked up by chance as part of routine surveillance of Russian intelligence assets. Over several months, different agencies targeting the same people began to see a pattern of connections that were flagged to intelligence officials in the US.
This on face value is a lie. The investigation was a targeted hit and not something “picked up by chance.”
The article goes on to report that President Trump’s Press Secretary at the time, released information that Trump was wired at Trump Tower and that it was the UK that wired the future President –
The issue of GCHQ’s role in the FBI’s ongoing investigation into possible cooperation between the Trump campaign and Moscow is highly sensitive. In March Trump tweeted that Barack Obama had illegally “wiretapped” him in Trump Tower.
The White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, claimed the “British spying agency” GCHQ had carried out the bugging. Spicer cited an unsubstantiated report on Fox News. Fox later distanced itself from the report.
The claims prompted an extremely unusual rebuke from GCHQ, which generally refrains from commenting on all intelligence matters. The agency described the allegations first made by a former judge turned media commentator, Andrew Napolitano, as “nonsense”.
“They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored,” a spokesperson for GCHQ said.
One source called the British eavesdropping agency the “principal whistleblower”.
So according to the sources in the article the UK began spying on President Trump in late 2015 but Judge ‘Nap’ and Sean Spicer were incorrect to say so because the UK spy agency said this was ‘utterly ridiculous’.
We’ve been told by the MSM and even the article above that the Trump – Russia story started in mid-2016. But this Guardian article pushes the spying back into 2015:

We also now know that a number of FBI Agents traveled to and from London in 2016. @JohnWHuber wrote an excellent thread noting the visit of Comey’s FBI crooks to London in May 2016 at the same time as Downer (Australian) was ‘meeting’ with Papadopoulos. This is consistent with the Guardian post above.
