Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer, who served under former President George w. Bush, just dropped a major truth bomb on Barack Obama for his role in the Spygate scandal. This will make your blood boil.
On the same day that members of the House Intelligence Committee joined President Donald Trump and members of the White House staff to discuss the Spygate scandal, in which the FBI is alleged to have placed spies in or around Trump’s presidential campaign, former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer dropped a major truth bomb on Barack Obama for his likely role in the criminal political surveillance operations. According to Breitbart, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was also in on the meeting which took place on Thursday, May 23, 2018.
During an interview on Fox News‘ Outnumbered, Fleischer broke into the conversation after host Harris Faulkner expressed her disbelief that political spying could actually have taken place in the United States of America.
“I think there’s a ‘bottom-er’ line,” Fleischer began. “Russia interfered with our election, and we know that the DNC and John Podesta’s emails were hacked. And, if any American cooperated in that, that should be investigated. I’ve said before and I’ll say it again, an attack on one party is an attack on all parties,” Fleischer continued.
“So, I’m all for this investigation because we should get to the bottom of what Russia did. But, to do that, sometimes you use, in a criminal investigation, informants. The issue here that makes it so extraordinary is when you put informants into the opposing presidential campaign and you’re the Obama administration deciding, we will authorize the FBI to put informants into the Trump campaign. Why and when did you do it?” Fleischer quipped.
“And, we don’t know the answers to that. We have not yet heard, and that’s why it’s so important for us to get these documents and for both parties see them, to know. The decision made in the Trump years, I mean in the Obama years to take this step has put themselves at risk. It is fraught with risk when you put informants into an opposing political campaign because we don’t want to set precedents that that’s how we conduct justice and elections,” Fleischer exclaimed.
When the issue of whether or not Democrats were invited to the meeting between President Trump and the House Intelligence Committee was brought up, Fleischer nailed it.
“The most important thing to me is not who’s in the room, but what is the information that’s brought into the room. That’s what this is about, and here’s my theory. When the Obama administration realized that the Trump campaign may have had contacts with Russia, they had two choices. One, do we tell the Trump campaign, do we warn Donald Trump that you may be infiltrated by Russians and you have a problem? They chose not to do that for some odd reason. Maybe because they thought there’s no one safe to tell,” Fleischer said.
“I think then, they got themselves spun up into such a nefarious theory. Why else wouldn’t they tell them? They thought Paul Manaf0rt can’t be trusted, Carter Page can’t be trusted, none of them can be trusted, we should not warn them. So, if you don’t warn them, then you create an environment for informants to find out what it is the Trump campaign is doing. Once they took that step, then it all started to spiral out of control, and that’s why we need to know why did it begin and who authorized it. What role did Barack Obama have? Did he know that the FBI was going to put informants there? I’ll guarantee you the answer’s ‘yes,’” Fleisher continued.
“No FBI would put informants in another presidential campaign without permission from the White House, including the President,” Fleischer concluded.
I agree one hundred percent with Fleischer in regard to Obama’s knowledge of the FBI’s placement of spies in or around the Trump campaign. However, I do believe that Fleischer is giving a little too much benefit of the doubt to the Obama administration when it comes to why they initially decided to spy on the Trump campaign. This was purely a political surveillance operation to benefit Hillary Clinton, who lost despite her side cheating.
Furthermore, Spygate was motivated by the god-complex of Barack Obama and others, such as former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former CIA Director John Brennan, and many more. They couldn’t cope with the fact that power would be handed over to Donald Trump and his conservative base. They thought themselves to be above our democratic process, and because of their inability to cede power, they planned Trump’s demise. Now, it’s there turn to fry.
