“I think he’s right in that there was surveillance and that it was conducted at the behest of the attorney general — at the Justice Department,” Mukasey told ABC’s “This Week.”
Trump on Saturday accused Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower in New York City just before the November election.
I would think that a competent legal adviser would have known that it wouldn't have passed with DT name on it .So I am thinking that the Judge may have not been as controlled as the O team would of liked and refused to stamp it ...The past paper trail would have been taken care of by the new HRC team and could have refused to release this important info as fact ....DT case to move ahead will have access to the hard facts of the original trajectory of the investigation . They (O team) are in a darned if they do and darned if they don't situation ....It will probably just become a public optics situation from hear on out .
Removing trump's name from the warrant so that it will get approved = perjury, unless the aims of the warrant changed (maybe they did, IDK) but from what we know now (little) it doesn't seem like they did.
n a July 2013 interview, Senator and privacy advocate Ron Wyden described the FISC warrant process as "the most one-sided legal process in the United States". "I don't know of any other legal system or court that really doesn't highlight anything except one point of view", he said. Later in the interview he said Congress should seek to "diversify some of the thinking on the court".

Or, working a case that involves possible collusion between a candidate for president and a foreign government to influence the outcome of the election

Oh yes. This was needed alright. It's called deflection. Look here not there.
Seeing a statement that trump has now asked congress to investigate wiretapping claims.
He will be sorry. But it gives h I s wild claim some weight.
But for the record if a FISA warrant was issued it means that a federal judge thought there was evidence of a crime to be investigated.

I think you accuse others of insults where none exist but in your own mind.
The only thing you have outed is your sense of your own importance.
Several of you have an unhealthy obsession with my posts. I'd be honored if it weren't so creepy.
all they want is another investigation (or ten) so that they can confirm their beliefs that that lying, Muslim, Kenyan, traitor Obama done spied on that Good and Honest, Christian Family Man Donald Trump.

We do not spy on our own. We do have inalienable rights.
Unalienable rights do not include colluding with foreign government's to undermine our free elections.
He is imploding on the Launchpad.
Considering they wiretapped him and found nothing I would say you are right, it doesn't, and he didn't, and they kept the wiretaps going.

Either way Trump will probably win by silencing the MSM and put a big red flag over Obama ...
Instead, the experts discovered that the Trump Organization had set up an email server that only performed one function: irregularly pinging a single email server located at Alfa Bank — one of Russia’s biggest banks, which has close connections to the Russian and Ukrainian political elite. Both servers were set up to reject connections from third-party servers, and neither was active outside of Moscow and New York business hours.
When Alfa Bank was questioned about its Trump-oriented server, that server vanished, only to be immediately replaced by another that performed the same function, Slate reported.
The conversation between the Trump and Alfa servers appeared to follow the contours of political happenings in the United States. “At election-related moments, the traffic peaked,” according to Camp. There were considerably more DNS lookups, for instance, during the two conventions.

I don't care what the media is doing. I can't engage with them in a conversation.
Ok, so then would you say that those on ATS rushing to judgement about Rusian hacking is just as bad?

Question is, was Obama collecting intel on Trump's campaign strategies and tactics? The FISA was only for the Russian bank, not for gathering campaign intel to help Hillary Clinton.
