‘Smoking gun’ showing Obama administration spied on Trump team, source says

by James Rosen | FOXNews.com
March 24, 2017

Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week, a source told Fox News.

Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President Trump accused his predecessor of having wiretappedhim in a series of now-infamous tweets posted on March 4.

The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump, according to sources.

    there has never been any doubt in my mind that obama was spying on Trump. He has been evil since he arrived in the US. He has done nothing but lie and deceive the American people. His whole presidency is a farce as he was never eligible to be President and it will come out. I wish his brother Malik would present more evidence. Sheriff Arpaiho presented evidence to Congress that shows obama was not eligible. obama is a treasonous bastard that needs to be executed.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP should start doing what he stated in one of our rallies…..

  • Pete says:

    The FBI confirmed that a “Russian Election Connection” official investigation is and has been active. That at least confirms that some sort of monitoring of the Trump staff has been ongoing for an extended period of time.

  • Jmanjo says:

    Not only Obama. I believe Schiff and Schumer have been hiding evidence all along to further their failed Russian accusations of Trump’s team. This is your shadow government of the Dems at full swing! Their part of the swamp is overdue!

        can you MEN get him OUT??

  • Dan says:

    I think it’s obvious that the Trump team had been spied upon. Will anyone go to jail? Still remains to be seen, there seems to be honor and a code of silence among the reptiles that lurk in that D.C. swamp. Today’s technology doesn’t require a spy posing as a janitor hooking up to the building phone connection block with alligator clips and a headset. With wireless communication products and IP addressing, the people that spy don’t have to be in the building and seem to get what they want from their target. Ask Edward Snowden…….

    And so? What will be done? When will the lying fraud Muslim POS who illegally occupied the White House for eight years be brought up on treason and criminal charges? Should I hold my breath waiting?

    Allow me Watson:
    1.) At the end of O’s time in office, he wrote an EO giving NSA the right to share their information with 16 other agencies.
    a.) No other administration allowed this.
    2.) Flynn had to resign because he was outed as having contacts deemed inappropriate.
    a.) How did that information leak to the press?
    3.) President Trump, in his office made a call to the Mexican President.
    a.) How did that phone call get to the news?
    4.) President Trump make a call in his office to the Australian PM.
    a.) How did it get leaked to the press?
    5.) Comey at his hearing made it clear, stunning everyone listening that the Russian/Trump Team connection was being investigated since July.
    a.) Representative Gowdy named every top person under Obama, including Comey and Obama that could have had assess, immediately to this information and leak it and Comey said yes, they did and they could.
    6.) Obama stumped, while a sitting President for Hillary, as did his wife, not seen in 100 years, calling Trump very ugly names, proving what?
    a.) He did not want Trump in office.
    7.) Why?
    a.) He had set the country up for “Change” and Hillary would surely follow his agenda.
    8.) Since leaving office Obama has set up sites on the net encouraging “Resistance” and ” Insistence” that Trump be taken out of office.

    Now Watson, can you name me anyone else who had the power to make a case, using all available to him to tie Trump and his Team to Russia? For the purpose of What?

    What is the hue and cry of the Left? Their Mantra? So much so that government agencies like the VA said they were not putting President Trump’s picture up, because he was going to be Impeached.

    I deduce that then President Obama and his cohorts decided to put the process of Impeachment into play using everything at his disposal and all his dupes in all the agencies. Tying in any minute way, Trump to Russia.

    I also deduce that they never thought someone like Nunes would dare to bypass their web of spiders and go straight to the intended victim, the President of this U.S. with information that could put them in the spotlight.

    What say you?

    1. Pete says:

      Do the swamp dwellers go quietly? obviously not. Do they get tossed out without some serious consequences? that also seems unlikely.
      Sadly, blood in the water at the end of this mess is nearly a certainty.

        Not forgetting when Bush took office all those offices that were staffed by Clinton were trashed…phone lines yanked out of the wall…graffiti…all the offices had to be cleaned, repainted, and new phones and phone lines installed…The liberal snow flakes purposely destroyed their safe places for the incoming Bush administration…This is how tolerant and concerned liberal Democrats are known to be.

          The dems behavior is So pathetic , and they will continue to loose seats in every upcoming election . I hear so many that have voted democrat but see just how much uglier their behavior has gotten . They got greedy and want socialism so badly they have overplayed their cards , which is Great for the rest of us . How petty and little is obummer to stay behind and cause trouble ? Every other existing president gets a life and leaves DC . He is so hung up on himself he’s too stupid to acknowledge All the seats being lost by dems and his policies over the years . These ass*%¥€ * just love to hear their own voices , and I believe obummer is collecting some serious money from Soros and others to continue this crap . We should all question how he and moochele left the White House Multi- Millionaires !! We can hope Congress does their job (finally ) and looks into all the deals that should hold strong charges of Treason !

        2. MyRoseHasTHORNS says:

          They even STOLE every W from every keyboard and we the taxpayers has to replace whole keyboards not individual letters. These were Gore’s people, not just Clinton’s. Both families noe vastly wealthy but still trying to CONTROL (not serve) the rest of us. F’get that!

        Then Blood it must be. We can confer with Hillary how to do it, she manages to kill anyone quickly who comes in her way. Killed 6 this last election.

      I’m with you on this.

      1. Tiger says:

        Thank you. I can’t see it any other way but hey, if they get O to testify like they are saying, that will be amazing.

        1. MyRoseHasTHORNS says:

          He’d LOVE to testify and toot his own horn but the narcissist has no regrets about what he has done, only the parts of his agenda that weren’t forced on us. He also has no ETHICS and would LIE right to Congress and they will let him-
          with the Dems falling at his feet worshipping their Messiah
          and the R afraid to ask anything that would show they KNOW he is a criminal, traitor or seditionist.

          It’s a stalemate for now, but someday the TRUTH will come out. I sadly don’t believe it’ll be soon though.

          1. Tiger says:

            Seems more and more people coming out, Nunes said that he won’t disclose anything about the people coming forth and he will protect them to the max, because he wants more to come.

            The Real People in all agencies are beginning to realize that they do have an opportunity to make things right.

    3. Dee says:

      Tiger I say I agree with you , and I Pray these bums see the inside of a prison cell . Obama was the dirtiest , most deceptive , piece of trash we ever had in Our White House , and I repeat myself over and over but Trump Needs to scrub that entire place and get these Traitors Out of Our Government . I find it odd Comey stated a couple weeks ago he would be finishing out his full term . If asked to leave why wouldn’t you Unless you have something up your sleeve .

      1. Tiger says:

        Amen and listening to Nunes new conference and they are calling Comey back in. The plot thickens and God will decide.

    4. Mike Thomas says:

      I see nothing is going to come of this because, They all or most of them belong to the same secret sororities. They have taken blood oaths, like Satanists, and should anyone betray the other, breaking the oaths they took will face horrible consequences.


      1. Tiger says:

        There is a new man in the WH, something already came of this, Nunes went straight to Trump. Today we hear there are more and more canaries singing to Nunes and they are encouraging more to come forward and telling the press that those canaries will be 100% protected so the press can shove it.

        Believe me the inmates are turning on the keepers.

  • W. Coyote says:

    If there is any justice in the world, President Obama will sue Trump for libel.
    The only “smoking gun” in this sordid mess is that Trump is a pathological liar.

    1. ch says:

      What planet do you live on snowflake.

      1. W. Coyote says:

        ch- Thank you for your reply and question. My feet are firmly rooted on planet Earth- southern state in the good old USA.

        I didn’t choose the term “pathological liar” on a whim. President Trump has lied about Obama’s birth certificate, millions of illegals voting for Hillary, the size of the inauguration crowd, the size of his I.Q., and too many more to mention. The strange thing is he lies when he doesn’t need to.
        From one source:
        “What are the characteristics of a pathological liar?

        Certain personality traits where pathological lying may occur include:**Narcissism or self-centered behaviors and thought patterns.**Selfishness.**Abusive attitude.**Obsessive, controlling, and compulsive behaviors.**Impulsivity.**Aggressiveness.**Jealous behavior.**Manipulative behaviors.” Could you please tell me which of these characteristics don’t apply?

        1. ch says:

          I am sure, you will soon find out when they get ex obama the muslime-liar in chiefs records unsealed that he was NEVER eligible to be our President. His birth certificate is a fake and Trump was right the first time around. ILLEGAL voters did vote for hiTLIARy and those reports are still coming out state by state.

          Three million votes in the U.S. presidential election were cast by illegal aliens, according to Greg Phillips of the VoteFraud.org organization.

          Info on 2008 and 2010 shows that illegals may have cast as many as 2.8 million votes in 2008 and 2010. That’s a lot of votes. And when you
          consider the population of illegal inhabitants has only grown since then, it’s not unreasonable to suppose that their vote has, too.


          He out performed hitlIARY in the race as she paid people to come to her meetings, Trumps were standing room only and out the door.

          Obama, you can keep your DR if you want and your rates will go down. ISIS is a JV team. Benghazi was about a video and on and on.

          Perhaps you need to read more sources than just those of the Clinton News Network

          1. W. Coyote says:

            Good morning ch- I assume you are suggesting some vast conspiracy of voter fraud, presumably to elect Hillary. If there was such a conspiracy and they were going to use it to steal an election, then why didn’t they apply the illegal votes in the key states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida that gave Trump the victory in the Electoral College? Why do you suppose that none of the Secretary’s of State (responsible for certifying elections) in all the red states, blue states, and purple states have said there is any evidence of widespread voter fraud.

            In my southern state for example, the Republican Secretary of State released a report covering the 3 statewide elections conducted in 2016, which included approx. 4.3 million votes cast. He found 42 cases of voter fraud:

            “18 instances of felons voting
            9 instances of double voting
            9 instances of residential issues
            2 instances of fraudulent voter registration
            2 instances of voters who are currently under investigation
            1 instance of fraudulent absentee voting
            1 instance of non-citizens voting”

          2. Anouk says:

            Great post! We know the Muslim Hussein Obama is a traitor.
            Only brainwashed idiots still believe he is legitimate.

          3. Anouk says:

            Great post ch! I couldn’t have done better. Thanks.

    2. Dee says:

      What a joke ! What goes around comes around . You will see who the Real Pathological Liar is .

      1. NoCoincidences says:

        We already have for eight years plus… Time to disinfect the nasty filth with nothing but pure truth. The bastard’s head will explode from the smallest drop. Imagine what the whole truth could do to the pr*ck.

      2. W. Coyote says:

        Dee- Thank you for your reply. I just cited a small fraction of the lies that Trump has told to another commenter. I agree with you. I’m not sure how many more whoppers he can tell before his most loyal supporters will finally see the light. We already know that President Obama did not order a wiretap of Trump Tower. If he had an ounce of class, at a very least, he should apologize ( although I doubt he can summon that minimal amount of class)

    3. NoCoincidences says:

      Your boy 0boingo is THE LIAR OF THE MILLENIUM- knocking your father- satan- out of the first place slot.

      1. W. Coyote says:

        NoCoincidences- Thank you for your reply. However, I have no idea what you are trying to say here. If you could restate it more clearly and directly, I would be happy to respond. In the meantime, I found an easily understandable description of the term “pathological liar”:
        “What are the characteristics of a pathological liar?
        Certain personality traits where pathological lying may occur include:**Narcissism or self-centered behaviors and thought patterns.**Selfishness.**Abusive attitude.**Obsessive, controlling, and compulsive behaviors.**Impulsivity.**Aggressiveness.**Jealous behavior.**Manipulative behaviors.” Seems like a good description of Trump to me.

        “My IQ is one of the highest — and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure; it’s not your fault.” This of course is another one of his lies, but it is my favorite.

        1. Mike Thomas says:

          1 Cor.3: 18-21, 1 Cor. 1:20 Jeremiah 8:9 & 9:23

          1. W. Coyote says:

            Mike-Good morning and thank you for your response and for sending the Bible references. However, I have no idea they are relevant to the false claim by Trump or the nonsense about a “smoking gun” in the article.

        2. Anouk says:

          This is a perfect description of the narcissist pathological liar Hussein Obama.
          Sometimes people’s brain like yours suffer from deficiency.
          BTW, President Trump is very smart and a hard working man.
          He is by all means NOT a liar.

          1. W. Coyote says:

            Anouk- Good morning and thank you for your response. The Trump lies are too numerous to document them all in a brief time. But a sampling- His claim that he was against the war in Iraq, his claim that “global warming is a hoax by the Chinese” and then his denial that he ever said that in a debate against Hillary. After he bragged about “grab them by p….”, he claimed it was “locker room talk”. Of course, probably the biggest was the racist lie about President Obama’s birth-along with his claim that this attempt to humiliate the President “did him a favor”. It really goes on and on. As far as his claim about his IQ, I would say he probably has an above average IQ. But he is not in the genius category (one of the highest). He does, however, remind me of something a very wise man once said:
            “A great many of the world’s problems are a result of the stupid being cocksure, while the intelligent are full of doubt”

          2. Anouk says:

            Coyote…Just move to a Communist country. You do not deserve to live in the US.
            Are you Jealous of Donald Trump? I guess so.
            Are you a loser? I think so.

          3. W. Coyote says:

            Good morning Anouk- I have no intentions to move to Communist country. I hate what the communists did to Russia. I visited Russia about 4 years ago and you can still see the lingering effects.
            In any case, I am just an ordinary patriotic American who loves this country and the freedoms we enjoy.
            It sounds like you are unable or unwilling to respond to specific examples of Trump bending the truth (to put it diplomatically). So you resort to another Trump tactic- insults and name calling.
            if you ever change your mind and decide you would like to continue a substantive discussion based on facts, let me know.
            Otherwise, I hope you and your family are doing well today.

  • Bob says:

    All part of the Democrats plan to make the transition as difficult as possible. The “Party of Whine” just can not get it through their egos that the American People rejected their message and their overly flawed messenger. They demanded acceptance of the results when they thought they would win, and can not accept they LOST. Next they will say that Trump “deflated” the election machines so his supporters could get a better grip?
