So, there really was a wiretap at Trump Tower then!
Strange timing that this story pops up right now...

A Mafia criminal wanted by the FBI, and Interpol no less;
Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov is on the run.

Now here is another really odd bit of facts - there were 30 people
indicted, some convicted and the case was tried and closed.

But Trump was never implicated.

And Alimzhan is still at large.

abcnews.go.com...


The FBI investigation did not implicate Trump. But Trump Tower was under close watch. Some of the Russian mafia figures worked out of unit 63A in the iconic skyscraper — just three floors below Trump’s penthouse residence — running what prosecutors called an “international money-laundering, sports gambling and extortion ring.”


So, Trump was not implicated at all.

I smell a few large rats, is this a convenient
lead in to later stories that might reveal a
wiretap really was active on Trump?

In any case, he is not backing down from his claim
that there was a recent wiretap.


about Tokhtakhounov, who, despite Interpol’s international red notice, is regularly seen in Moscow at popular restaurants and other public places.



I am fully intrigued, and putting on my tin hat.

It's certainly an interesting turn of events. Following this story and any ramifications of this story...

Some people who were part of Trump's campaign had their personal phones tapped. That doesn't mean Trump Tower itself was tapped and it doesn't mean Obama tapped Trump Tower as Trump claimed. People need to stop acting like words and phrasing doesn't matter.

Timing is everything in of the "news" world,
( as you know ) it is all controlled to shape the narrative.

The wiretap was between 2011-2013, nothing to do with any election.

I find the timing of the story to be a Red Herring,
since this happened about 4 years ago.

But, there was no implication of Trump.
I guess that is an inconvenient fact?

How so, it's been pretty obvious that the Trump Tower has been an object of interest for some time for intel, and I don't mean yesterday.

I am so tired of this Russian bull#.

We are now at a point where we acknowledge Russia's meddling or we don't.

If Russia is doing what has been accused for the past couple years then its an act of war. Yet we're not at war. hmm.

What's the matter American intelligence communities, Army, Navy and Marines? You all chicken-#? Lets #ing fight or shut the # up.

We've destroyed lesser nations for less. You are either lying our your chicken #...make up our minds.

I could not agree with you more.
Sad to say I think the deep power structure, shadow government
or deep state which ever one term prefers is using this Russian
narrative to polarize the people.

They have everyone right where they want them.

My main reason for posting this is to try and expose
this polarization that is being put upon us.



I see beyond. Thanks for your comments.

ETA: Right before Obama left office he gave Russia
a huge pass through the DOJ. That speaks volumes
to me. Russia is being used; a convenient tool.

This is what tears my hide.

I have met a few Russians here in America at clubs or bars and almost ended up in a fight every time. When I was in my early 20's there was a horrific accident on Christmas Eve where a Russian who won a martial arts tournament (travelled here for the fight) was celebrating at a club in my area. He and a fellow Russian was responsible for a horrific crash that resulted in the deaths of 2 Americans and the Russian in the passenger seat who was thrown out of the car , over the bridge and landed in the road below (easily a 30ft drop) he didnt even look like a person he was so mangled.

I was the first person on the scene along with my girlfriend at the time and a friend in the back seat. The American driver who was driving was asking about a passenger we couldn't find, turns out he was crushed in the back seat and I was the one to find him by reaching in and feeling his arm. As luck (or lack there of) would happen, I knew the driver, a nice girl who's eye socket was busted and was hard to look at.

The Russian who was thrown out of the car and landed over the bridge was dead on impact and his head was literally up his ass. I put flares around him so other cars didn't run him over. The Russian martial artist survived and was in shock. A rescue blanket was placed over him to keep him warm....he was the cause of the accident...survived and believe he was charged with manslaughter.

I have never had a positive experience with a Russian yet I try to defend truth. If in fact they were meddling...its time to end it.

My, what a traumatic experience that must have been,
especially at such a young age.

I fully understand where your coming from.

Not being a fan of the USSR, let alone Putin
I agree we must stand against that communist
country with solidarity.

As the USSR, Communist Russia,
They are a real threat, as they always have been.

Yet I think the constant hype of the boogeyman
in this post election cycle has nothing to do with
the real threat that exists.

Ive never really talked about that but it provides context. Every time I give them the benefit of the doubt they disappoint me. However, you can't judge a people for a few bad apples and I try to stay open minded. I hadn't even considered that traumatic experience because I blocked it out. Now it's just surreal memories that I barely even remember.

And experience like that would be horrifying,
our minds push it to subconscious as a matter
of survival. Better to deal with it later as an adult.

It is good to be a free thinker, imo.

People can be free, and not represent the ideals
of the country they came from, so dealing with individuals
I try and give the benefit of the doubt.

But beyond that, Russia is a The Bear.

Tell that to all the conservative groups spied on and harassed by Obama's IRS.

Tell that to James Rosen and his family -- the reporter who was WIRETAPPED and surveilled by the Obama Regime.

Tell that to all the AP reporters Obama and his goons spied on.

Russia is a bear and their people have that ingrained in their minds. They are a threat to America, more than Iran, Hezbollah or even ISIS. But that's not really ever discussed, is it?

We've done the dirty dirty to this world. Had we not, Russia or China surely would have. That's the part we keep missing (or I keep missing in my passive aggressive ways).

I just liked the idea of America being the beacon of light and that has gone by way of the dodo. Now we are just like everyone else or worse.

The IRS looked into liberal groups too. If conservative ones got more scrutiny it was probably because conservatives and scams tend to go hand-in-hand. *cough* Trump University *cough*

Also what do any of the people/groups you mentioned have to do with Trump Tower allegedly being wire-tapped? Wire-tapping happens, therefore Trump Tower must have been wire-tapped in spite of the lack of evidence? Okay.........

And I am by no means defending the wiretapping of those journalists, but Trump is claiming to be at war with the media so don't you think he'll do the same or worse?
