“Very Soon”

President Trump says he will be submitting evidence of the electronic surveillance of Trump Tower “Very soon”.

He also says that over the next couple of weeks the American people will be seeing some “very interesting things’.

The pattern continues. Trump tweets something. The media goes nuts. They spend a lot of time and energy belittling Trump and the subject matter. Then a couple of weeks later after his detractors have firmly placed themselves on the hook, whatever Trump is talking about turns out to be accurate.

    That’s because he is a genius playing 5th dimensional quantum chess and the rest of us are playing Candyland. There is just no way regular people can keep up with his multifaceted, strategic thinking. We are but putty in his hands.

  2. R.D. Walker says:

    The real genius is that anything he says becomes the truth retroactively. For example, he is now making the case that when he said “wire tapping” he put it in quotes because “wire tapping” doesn’t necessarily mean that “wires” are “tapped”. It could mean many things. Anything really. Soon we will find out that wire tapping could mean “rock climbing” or “break dancing” or “cow tipping”.

    When asked by Carlson why he tweeted about the alleged phone tap before producing evidence, Trump said his definition of wiretapping “covers a lot of different things.”

    “That really covers surveillance and many other things,” he said. “Nobody ever talks about the fact that [the words ‘wires tapped’] was in quotes [in the tweet], but that’s a very important thing.”

      I hear this same talking point coming from the media. They know the term wiretapping is a broadly defined legal term and feign ignorance to it.

      If I construct a device to grab your cell transmissions from the air, even though no “wires” were tapped, I could be charged with violating the federal wiretap act. It has always been that way and now recently there is a concocted argument to suggest actual landline wired devices are required.

      Under the Act, it is illegal to: Intentionally, or purposefully, Intercept, disclose, or use the contents of Any wire, oral, or electronic communication Through the use of a “device” The Act provides criminal and civil penalties for violations, and it has various exceptions to when interceptions and disclosures are not illegal.

      If below is true it would be a major discussion point.

      “Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command,” Napolitano said. “He didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI, and he didn’t use the Department of Justice.”

      Instead, Napolitano said, Obama used GCHQ, a British intelligence and security organization that has 24-7 access to the NSA database.

      “There’s no American fingerprints on this,” Napolitano said. “What happened to the guy who ordered this? Resigned three days after Donald Trump was inaugurated.”

        The salient issue here is whether or not the former president illegally ordered the secret surveillance of the opposing party’s nominee for president.

        Trump claimed that Obama ordered wiretapping of his campaign.

        If it is true, it is a big fucking deal and Obama is in trouble.

        If it is baseless, it is a big fucking deal and Trump is in trouble.

        Either way, somebody is in trouble.

    Uh oh.

    Donald Trump suffered the second bipartisan rebuke from Congress over his wiretapping claims in two days — and left it to his embattled spokesman, Sean Spicer, to explain that the president didn’t actually mean what he wrote.

    The Republican chairman and top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday shot down Trump’s claim that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

    The stunning rebukes from senior Republicans are the latest sign that many in the GOP are increasingly frustrated with a president who has made a habit of hurling inflammatory insults on Twitter at his political rivals — or even his reality-television rivals — often without evidence and sometimes based on conspiracy theories.
