Mainstream News outlets are now eating crow after CNN reports surfaced Monday evening that President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was, in fact, wiretapped. Early this year, President Trump was mocked by the media after he made the notion on Twitter that wiretapping took place. Here is the Tweet:
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
After the Tweet from the President, mainstream news sources had a general consensus there was absolutely no basis for such claims, and in turn, attacked him for making it. That all changed Monday when CNN was forced to uncover new knowledge they recently obtained.
According to Breitbart News:
… a report Monday evening said U.S. investigators obtained a surveillance warrant on Manafort from a secret court and had monitored him before and after the election, including a “period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump.”
The report said the secret court that handles the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act had authorized a surveillance warrant against Manafort for an investigation that began in 2014, looking into his firm, the Podesta Group, and another firm’s lobbying work for Ukraine’s pro-Russian former ruling party.
That’s right. Manafort had residence in Trump Tower and had many conversations with the President during the time of the wiretapping. A source told CNN“The surveillance was discontinued at some point last year for lack of evidence.”
Remember when the Department of Justice and FBI denied Trump was wiretapped? Only the DOJ and FBI can authorize wiretapping. So either Lynch, Comey or both of them knew about it and later denied it!
It’s interesting as time goes we continue to find out more and more that our America First President usually makes bold, calculated statements on Twitter for no other reason than to expose what MSM, the establishment and the deep state are trying to hide. And when they harp on him for such actions, it should only make Americans question their motive.
