During the 2016 presidential election, then-candidate Trump made waves when he stated that then-President Obama spied on his campaign. Of course, it turns out that Trump was correct, as documented by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
How Did Obama’s FBI Spy on Then-Candidate Trump?
The steps which were employed against Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016 were very simple and methodical. In a nutshell, the FBI set up various plants to target members of the Trump campaign; once this phase one was complete, the plants then led certain campaign members to believe that Russia might have damning information on Clinton or that the Russian government might have “hacked” certain emails.
From this point, the Obama-controlled FBI managed to get a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to monitor Carter Page. Somehow, the FBI’s investigations led to legal issues for George Papadopoulos, Michael Flynn, and others. There are various debates and questions as to the legality of the FBI’s conduct, but to maintain that Obama’s FBI never spied on the Trump 2016 campaign is simply untrue and downright ridiculous.
The Recurring Pattern
Throughout the 2016 presidential election, Trump ongoingly maintained that Obama was responsible for spying on his campaign and yet, Trump was laughed at and disbelieved. Similarly, when the Russia investigation commenced, Trump maintained that he was innocent and never colluded with the Russians in order to win the 2016 election. Nearly two years later, Trump was proven right and the individuals who repeatedly accused him of Russia collusion were forced to eat crow.
There is a recurring pattern of the mainstream media and Democrats not believing the current president. Why? Because they want him to be guilty of something. For some reason, there is a subsection of people who refuse to accept reality: Obama’s FBI did, in fact, spy on Trump’s campaign. Trump did not collude with the Russians in order to defeat Hillary Clinton.
The sooner people drop their conspiracy theories and face reality, the better off they will be!
