It’s been said that history doesn’t exactly repeat, but it does “rhyme.” So, this might be is a case of “here we go again.”
Let’s have a look.
Were Democratic leaders desperate enough or stupid enough to attempt to wiretap Mr. Trump’s phones during the election? In other words, is this Watergate all over again, only with the Democrats as the perpetrators? It looks like it.
Those of us old enough to remember will recall the break-in at Democratic Party offices in the Watergate Hotel in Washington, DC during President Nixon’s election campaign in 1972. The hearings, the erased segments of audio tapes, all led to Republican leaders making a trip to the White House to tell the president that he had to resign or be impeached. It was not a pleasant time for this country.
Here are the allegations:
“The treasonous plot to overthrow Donald Trump started as far back as June 2016 when he became the GOP nominee. Barack Obama, no doubt with Hillary Clinton’s approval, hatched a plan to wiretap Trump Tower to listen in on all of the Republican nominee’s communications.
“Obama had his Department of Justice lackey Loretta Lynch petition the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC, also called the FISA Court) in June for the wiretapping, but when that initial application failed, Obama had the DOJ rewrite it with bogus allegations that Obama thought Trump had some nefarious dealings with Russian banks, making sure it would be granted in October.
“So, a month before the 2016 election, Obama had Trump Tower wiretapped. He listened in on everything going on at the opposition’s headquarters.”
It’s one thing to make allegations such as these. It’s another thing to make them stick. Will they?
Breitbart reports that, “[Radio Talk Host Mark] Levin called Obama’s effort ‘police state’ tactics, and suggested that Obama’s actions, rather than conspiracy theories about alleged Russian interference in the presidential election to help Trump, should be the target of a congressional investigation.”
This is the entire supposed Russian scandal turned on its head. In other words, it is now alleged to be a set-up orchestrated by Obama and his functionaries to sabotage President Trump, complete with the tapping of his phones in the Trump Tower.
Mr. Levin didn’t stop there: “Levin used his entire show last Thursday to go over Obama’s actions, which are public record and include a paper trail proving Obama’s goal is to take out Trump and Pence. Levin cites a New York Times piece from March 1st, which incriminates Obama, exposing his efforts to set up the big Russian lie.”
If looking for evidence of wrongdoing by Democrats, The New York Times is not typically the first place to start, yet there it is.
Once again, we go to Breitbart for additional reporting: “The Obama administration sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign; continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found; then relaxed the NSA rules to allow evidence to be shared widely within the government, virtually ensuring that the information, including the conversations of private citizens, would be leaked to the media.”
At this point, “Mark Levin called the effort a ‘silent coup’ by the Obama administration and demanded that it be investigated.”
And he is not the only one demanding an investigation – President Trump has done likewise, and letting loose one his signature blistering series of Tweets on the matter.
Will this be Watergate 2.0 with Mr. Obama as the villain this time? Stay tuned as this is far from over.
