After two years of gaslighting us with a line that ‘no Obama’s administration did NOT spy on Trump’s team’, it’s now clear they did exactly that.
And some of the nations few remaining REAL journalists have been on that story like a dog on a bone. One of those journalists was Sharyl Attkisson, who has herself complained about being spied on by the Obama administration, was among the earlier voices sounding the alarm.
Some examples she raises from a piece she wrote in 2017:
You’ll recall DNI Clapper falsely assured Congress in 2013 that the NSA was not collecting “any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans.”
Intel agencies secretly monitored conversations of members of Congress while the Obama administration negotiated the Iran nuclear deal.
In 2014, the CIA got caught spying on Senate Intelligence Committee staffers, though CIA Director John Brennan had explicitly denied that.
It’s difficult not to see patterns in the government’s behavior, unless you’re wearing blinders.
The intelligence community secretly expanded its authority in 2011 so it can monitor innocent U.S. citizens like you and me for doing nothing more than mentioning a target’s name a single time.
In January 2016, a top secret inspector general report found the NSA violated the very laws designed to prevent abuse.
In 2016, Obama officials searched through intelligence on U.S. citizens a record 30,000 times, up from 9,500 in 2013.
Two weeks before the election, at a secret hearing before the FISA court overseeing government surveillance, NSA officials confessed they’d violated privacy safeguards “with much greater frequency” than they’d admitted. The judge accused them of “institutional lack of candor” and said, “this is a very serious Fourth Amendment issue.”

Between the IRS targeting political enemies, the illegal unmasking of Americans being spied on, the abrupt changes in classification rules in the closing days of the Presidency, the Tarmac meeting, the mishandling of Hillary’s email scandal … etcetera, etcetera … it’s looking like Obama’s idea of ‘Fundamental Transforming’ of America was to turn us into a police state.
If it turns out the breadcrumbs DO lead all the way back to him, should Barack get a perp walk, and stand trial in front of the nation?
