Nancy Pelosi must be off her medication again, and this time, it’s really bad. In the past, we’ve seen Nancy make some huge gaffes when it comes to talking points, but this might just take the cake. You’re going to love how she’s losing her mind as she completely lies about President Donald Trump and Barack Obama on national live television with Jake Tapper.
Sunday, on CNN’s “State of the Union,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that it’s completely ridiculous to think Barack Obama would have wiretapped Donald Trump or any citizen. “As one who has been engaged in intelligence as a member of the gang of eight for a long time, I can say that it’s just ridiculous for President Trump to say President Obama would order any wiretap of an American citizen, any president,” said Nancy.
Here’s Nancy’s big truth problem; we already know that is exactly what happened. As Breitbart reported, Mark Levin outlined how the Obama administration got an order from the FISA court to tap Trump Tower.
“The first [FISA] request, which, sources say, named Trump, was denied back in June, but the second [FISA request] was drawn more narrowly and was granted in October after evidence was presented of a server, possibly related to the Trump campaign, and its alleged links to two banks; SVB Bank and Russia’s Alfa Bank.” [via Heat Street]
Nancy lost her mind, lying on national TV. Zero Hedge reported that presidents can and do request these type of taps. They point out that in Chapter 36 of Title 50 of the US Code “War and National Defense,” Subchapter 1, Section 1802 private citizens do get tapped all the time.
Zero Hedge explains, “[W]hat the Snowden affair has demonstrated all too clearly, is how frequently the NSA and FISA court would make US citizens collateral damage. To be sure, many pointed out the fact that Fox News correspondent James Rosen was notoriously wiretapped in 2013 when the DOJ was investigating government leaks. The Associated Press was also infamously wiretapped in relation to the same investigation.”
The funny thing is, Nancy Pelosi said that she has been part of the gang of eight, which makes her one of the elected officials who has the clearance to know what the intelligence agencies are doing. Clearly, she knows that Obama got the FISA order, but she just can’t tell the truth.
This is just another stunning performance by Pelosi, and it’s beyond common sense comprehension to try to understand how this woman is still in office, let alone being a part of this gang of eight who are responsible for oversight on the intelligence communities. She has got to go.
Nancy is part of the swamp that is getting drained in Washington, D.C., and hopefully, this idiot will be ousted by 2018. America can’t afford her. Pelosi brought us Obamacare, so she’s done enough damage already.
