I can prove that Obama violated finance laws.

Was any of his team wiretapped for that?


Gambler, I'm going to post a reply to you not because I believe there's any chance of convincing you of anything. You're so deep in cognitive dissonance that it's any wonder the pressure hasn't hit you like a ton of bricks. I'm going to post in the hopes that others will take note.

You're not the first one on ATS to make claim that you could demonstrate criminal guilt beyond doubt against either Obama or Hillary or [insert Democrat leftie here]. These claims have been made a dozen times on this forum. Everybody and their dog here claims to have the kryptonite to bring those dastardly lefties down. The problem is, what you may claim to be damaging and evidence does not translate to reality.



I am so glad you made this post.

I am apparently suffering from cognitive dissonance, and have made up a story that Obama was guilty of violating campaign fianance laws.

Let me show you again what I posted as proof of this.


Barack Obama's presidential campaign has been fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for violating federal disclosure laws, Politico reports.

An FEC audit of Obama for America's 2008 records found the committee failed to disclose millions of dollars in contributions and dragged its feet in refunding millions more in excess contributions.

The resulting fine, one of the largest ever handed down by the FEC, is the result of a failure to disclose or improperly disclosing thousands of contributions to Obama for America during the then-senator's 2008 presidential run, documents show.


www.usnews.com...

The Federal Election Committee found his campaign guilty of violating campaign finance laws.

I think you need to take a long look in the mirror. Even when the FEC finds Obama's campaign guilty, even when yhey pay the fine assessed, you still refuse to believe reality, and have the nerve to claim anyone who can clearly see this fact as suffering from cognitive dissonance.

An absolutely hilarious post that shows once more some democrats will accuse others of what they themselves actually don.

Fun fact: The guy you think signed off on this actually recused himself:


Interesting. I stand corrected.



It was Rod Rosenstein who signed off on the raid.


From your own source:


Other attorneys in the Southern District handled the FBI raid,which a federal judge approved, ABC News said.


It appears a judge approved the raid as well.


"ABC News said"

I must be missing the logic here. If NBC is fake news, then why did they retract/correct the article immediately? It takes some kind of special mental gymnastics to explain that.....

You need a source to realize that Donald Trump won the election?


No and that is not what you said in your post. Nice moving of goalposts.



I'm ignoring your trolling on the Q thing as I have already made my position clear and have no need to defend participating in any thread.


If you get to use my beliefs as a socialist to bash me over the head, then I get use your belief in ATS "wolf pack", pedo-hunting role playing to bash over yours.

All's fair in love and war, right?



But seriously, Hillary LOST the election even if you can't deal with it.


I was not a supporter of Clinton and really couldn't care less. You appear to lack any real decent argument, so you have to resort to ignorant assumptions and talking points.

Imagine that. A member of the "wolf pack" being a sheep.

Well wait.

I am told by countless posters on here almost everyday how some sources have been wrong in the past and are therefore fsake news so we shouldnt even look at what the article says.

Does that mean these same people will now be saying the same about NBC?

Fake news:

Earlier today, NBC News reported that there was a wiretap on the phones of Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal attorney, citing two separate sources with knowledge of the legal proceedings involving Cohen. But three senior U.S. officials now dispute that, saying that the monitoring of Cohen’s phones was limited to a log of calls, known as a pen register, not a wiretap where investigators can actually listen to calls. NBC News has changed the headline and revised parts of the original article.

C'mon Mis, you're a smart guy. Are you telling me that the most likely explanation (one of their reporters got a scoop and didn't verify/vet it properly - something that happens in news) doesn't come to mind?

Would you suggest an alternative that satisfies Occam's Razor better?

NBC and MSNBC is suffering internal turmoil, due to having so many perverts and rapists on the payroll. (Lauer, Brokaw, Costas, O'Donnel, Maddow)

They try hard to report real news, but the organization is not up to the task. That's why.

If they were possibly involved with the biggest crime of the century then yes of course every avenue of legal data collection should be used.

I would say you are probably right on this.

The question is, is that any better?

I guess when people hear the term "fake news" perhaps they mean intentionally made up by the place reporting it.

I dont think that is what happened here. I think that either the reporter exaggerated what he was told, or his source flat out lied to him or her and they didnt verify the info before they ran with it.

This has happened many times before as well.

Neither of those options are good.

Easy answer.

They sucked enough people in and they'll always believe it no matter what.

It's an old old trick.

Several hours is plenty of time to sink it in.

Just look at the 50 interpretations right here on ATS already.

Oh really?

Well people have suggested the Comey, or Hillary were involved in many "crimes of the cenutry" type crimes.

SO I guess wiretap all of them, right?

The problem is anyone can be accused of a huge crime, if we then allow that to be the reason to start wiretapping political people (or anyone) and raiding their lawyers, we will ran by an unelecetd intel community that acts as kingmakers by deciding who to spy on and who not to.
