The Media (D) are thrilled to have kneecapped Flynn.
But the leaks raise DEEPER questions…
Liberals are piling on. Gleefully saying things like ‘bigger than Watergate’. Zac Petkanas… we’re looking at you. Funny thing that you should invoke ‘Watergate’ in this case. There are some interesting parallels.
What was the problem that deep-sixed Nixon, ultimately? Wasn’t it the weaponizing of federal agencies to hurt his political rivals? As Wiki puts it in defining Watergate:
The term Watergate has come to encompass an array of clandestine and often illegal activities undertaken by members of the Nixon administration. Those activities included such “dirty tricks” as bugging the offices of political opponents and people of whom Nixon or his officials were suspicious. Nixon and his close aides also ordered investigations of activist groups and political figures, using the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). -Wiki
IRS. FBI. CIA.
Obama’s already had his IRS scandals. But what EXACTLY is going on with the Flynn leaks?
It turns out that conversations between Flynn and the Russian Ambassador were recorded, and then leaked to the Media (D).
Keep in mind, the recording happened during OBAMA’s final days in office.
Officials within the intelligence community kneecapped Flynn. (They have had their private reasons, which we have referenced elsewhere.)
But when they leaked the information? They had to break the law to do it.
Remember, it was a wiretapping case that brought down Nixon.
Who was behind the decision to wiretap Flynn? On what authority? And did Obama or his aides have any part to play in it?
We already know Obama is quite willing to color outside the lines of legal restraints (Fast and Furious. IRS scandal. Hillary’s email. Etcetera.)
But what role did he, or his loyalists play in the submarining of General Flynn.
That’s a question the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee would like an answer to.
And who ELSE is the government eavesdropping on? Chaffez is introducing a bill. And also, calling for an investigation on exactly this topic. (Here’s the letter.)

When we finally get to the bottom of this, will we Obama be as tainted as Nixon? Or will someone else take the fall?
