Maybe they should not have given him his twitter back..



That would be a good first step. I think we can all agree to that.

But it should really worry us that such steps would even need to be made in the first place.

We are being led by someone who we have to babysit. That's insane.

It's been almost 6 hours. Where's the confirmation or denial of the Comey statement reported by the NYT?

This whole thing is starting to smell like a failed Deep State coup to me.


Your saying someone put that info out there to go in front of Comey? It wouldn't work because he'd deny he was behind that statement unless someone had leverage on him.

Odd! White House Spokeswoman, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, repeatedly said that the New York Times and the Washington Post were credible sources, while she was making the Sunday morning talk show rounds.


I do not see that, in fact the opposite.

What she actually said:


"Everybody acts like President Trump is the one that came up with this idea and just threw it out there," said deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on March 5. "There are multiple news outlets that have reported this."

At one point in the segment, Sanders specifically named the New York Times and BBC as news outlets that have covered the wiretapping allegations. Show host Martha Raddatz pushed back and said Trump started this issue with his specific tweet.

I do not think Trump is up at 4:00 am tweeting about old articles
written by Slate and the NYT.

It seems much more plausible he knew about this, as Xcath posted
an article earlier in which Admiral Rogers visited Trump before
Obama left office. It is much more likely Trump has actual Intel.




The president, a spokeswoman said on ABC’s This Week, didn’t come up with the storyline out of thin air. He was echoing reports from "multiple news outlets."


This is what the MSM is trying to paint "madman tweeting old stories".

Anything from these outlets probably the opposite is true.

Either Jim Comey didn't care about the law, or he is majorly lacking the skill set that should be required to run the FBI. The ineptitude of his decision making during this entire campaign deserves to be at least investigated by the DOJ. This whole thing seems to be a game to him. I guess it is time for Trump to make some Huge decisions really fast.

Comey did ask them to stop it.


No proof at all of course as usual.

All wild Left Wing speculation and hyperbole.

Can you back up your statement?

James Clapper denies any wiretapping activity — instantly receives brutal fact check from conservatives


James Clapper, former director of national intelligence under former President Barack Obama, denied Sunday the accusation that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower in the latter stages of last year’s presidential election.

“There was no such wiretap activity mounted against the president, the president-elect, at the time, or as a candidate, or against his campaign,” Clapper said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday morning.

During the interview, Clapper also explained that if there was a FISA court order to conduct any surveillance then he would have known about it, but continued to deny that any order was ever issued against Trump.


more specific denials that dont address the larger issue. If they continue to stick to the bs Russia story then sure, they can claim they never surveilled Trump.

The more this is denied the bigger the story is going to become. If they werent after Trump then why do Democrats keep claiming their are ties? It seems Democrats and the intelligence community cant get their stories straight.

Even if it was. That isn't where the President is supposed to get his intel from.
Maybe he didn't but heard a rumor that they would be publishing on it ...Other news sources did but had a different bend to it . He didn't link it to them but his tweets would have got people google searching the subject and wound up on that site with the fresh story with yet a different bend to it then the older MSM sources had . I think if you check that posting went viral and had over 100,000 comments on it . Pretty impressive if you ask me .

That explains why Democrats are once again hating Comey... Pelosi said he could not be trusted... Apparently he is not giving Democrats want they want.


I have to disagree. I believe that to be a ploy.

or someone is taking advantage of his (Comey) recent statement that the FBI cant refute every false media story out there because it would be a full time job.

Is it possible that Breitbart put their story together from past MSM pieces ? The MSM had been talking about the Fisa taps .



It's my understanding from the Washington Post (and it seems to check out), that Breitbart picked up the info for the story from other outlets that had not verified the sources and/or used unnamed sources...and plainly said so, back in November and January...

The Washington Post pointed to these articles as Breitbart's sources:

You can see in the Breitbart article that these are the sources linked to in their article: Link

Soooo....I guess I just think the whole thing stinks.

Or, Comey is in on the take-down of the Deep State and is playing a role.

The entire FISA warrant was reported by the NYT back in 2016.

Wasn't it around October when someone leaked Donald Trumps '95 Tax return? Wasn't it claimed, if memory serves correctly, the envelope had "Trump Tower" when it was sent? Given the time frame, it does become suspicious. Also, I recall someone climbing Trump Tower back in Aug with suction cups. Could that have been a diversion? Who knows?
Then the rumour flew that in October some kind of investigation was ongoing with regards to the FISA court. Someone is trying to either "Frame" this or there is something more to this.

Good catch. I think you are onto something. If you are right, this means the FISA warrant was abused to spy on everything in Trump tower, which would be a huge crime.

He shouldn't be acting on rumors either.

He's the President.

He has access to better sources than a rumor or Breitbart news or Right Wing Radio.

If there was something to it dont you think democrats would have used it to end the Trump campaign? The fact snip is dripping out tells me there is nothing there but make believe by Democrats who are set on undermining Trump.
