Twitter is buzzing again about the wiretap saga. The Obama administration insists Trump’s wiretap accusations are nonsense. However, Fox News correspondent James Rosen claims there’s a “smoking gun,” and it’s coming soon.
Reports of the smoking gun have already hit the Twitter world. Now, there’s massive buzz about it on Trump’s favorite social media network.
Did the Obama administration actually bug and listen to phone calls of President Trump’s transition team? Does a smoking gun really exist? The tweets are almost endless as the world waits for the next big alert on the Trump-Obama wiretap saga.
Late Wednesday, someone handed information to House intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. It indicated that
“…intelligence reports “unmasked” members of the Trump transition team in the months of November, 2016 through January.”
In the report, surveillance and intelligence targets were disclosed, talking about or talking with Trump transition team members. So believe they may have been foreign nationals.
In those instances, protocol requires that reports keep the names of U.S. citizens secret by substituting “American A, B, C” or something similar.
That procedure was not followed in these instances. Fox News correspondent James Rosen confirmed, and widened Nunes’ findings through his own sources.
Rosen reported that Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” to come from the House Intelligence Committee this week that will establish “that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself,” a source told Fox News.
Rosen also reported:
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 wiretapped him 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.The key to that conclusion is the unmasking of selected U.S. persons whose names appeared in the intelligence, the sources said, adding that the paper trail leaves no other plausible purpose for the unmasking other than to damage the incoming Trump administration.
“Those reports are concerning to me,” Nunes told Fox News host Sean Hannity Thursday, adding that after receiving them, he briefed House Speaker Paul Ryan, members of the media and President Donald Trump.
“To me, it’s clear that I would be concerned if I was the president,” the California Republican added.
