When the rumors of Obama collecting intel on incoming Trump team broke, we approached it with caution. Well now we’ve got confirmation. Chairman Devin Nunes, of the House Intelligence Committee, has the story. This of course means when Trump said “Obama was monitoring us” (he used “wire-tapping”) that he was kind of, sort of… right. Sucks to be a leftist today.
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said Wednesday that new intelligence reports show some conversations involving members of President Trump’s transition team were collected by intelligence officials, but said those conversations appeared to be collected “legally” in the course of “normal, foreign surveillance.”
“I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show that the President-elect and his team were, I guess at least monitored and disseminated out in intelligence, in what appears to be raw — or, I shouldn’t say raw — intelligence recording channels,” Nunes said.
Which kind of means (ALLEGEDLY) that after Trump trounced Cankles, Obama decided (ALLEGEDLY) to open an investigation into his orange-coifed successor. But he did it legally, so it’s fine. Go home, people. Just don’t book a trip to London anytime soon.
What should we take from this? Well one, the media can’t help itself give Trump gifts. Just when they start mocking him for being a paranoid numbnuts, just when they’ve layered ropes around their necks for decoration, Trump comes in and holds the other end, then face kicks them off a cliff. I’m speaking figuratively of course.
Secondly, Obama is, as we suspected for 8 years, kind of a snake. Allegedly. But if we know anything about Obama, he probably just read about his own administration surveilling Trump’s people (and maybe Trump himself) from the news today. Maybe he’s been too busy globetrotting or picking out decor with his best gal pal Valerie Jarrett. Allegedly.
