plow the Trump nest of vipers out of our WH
He had Valarie Jarett move in with his family so they can plot the overthrow of Trump together.
Not kidding. They think he is planning a coup. I can't tell them any different..
contingent of a foreign ambassador to the US was expelled from our country?
Our wonderful President Obama knows something......
From Scent of a Woman -
I'm not finished! As I came in here, I heard those words, "Cradle of Leadership". Well, when the bough breaks, the cradle will fall. And it has fallen here. It has fallen. Makers of men, Creators of leaders. Be careful what kind of leaders you're producing here...
He can tell what he knows, but it's normally considered to be bad form to do so. What is needed is for him to appear at a Congressional Hearing as a witness. Then, he can answer questions truthfully and completely. In fact, he'd be required to do so.
So, whatever committees are investigating the Trump/Putin connection should ask him to appear. I'm sure he would oblige them. He has the information they're looking for, and with documentation. All they need to do is ask him, under oath.
Most likely the IC is investigating this thoroughly to make sure they have sourced any intel and can back up any case that they may be able to present. It's probably safe to say that Obama can't say anything about it since it's ongoing and the IC is most likely still in the early stages of discovery considering the complicated connections and years of contact.
I would say Obama knows a great deal. It must suck for him to have to sit by silently while all this plays out.
Obama probably was briefed on what they found...but don't imply this was done at the behest of Obama...I do know The FISA court grants such warrants when criminality is suspected...Comey knew too and said nothing. I hope you are not implying the president was out to 'get' Trump...that was not the case.
And I'm not sure where in the text of what i wrote that you would infer such a thing.
My point being- - and this from my original post- - that if you are the president, how difficult it would be to sit on the knowledge that your successor was in up to his comb over with a hostile foreign government.
I would say that if there was a warrant to listen in on 45, Obama would have been notified.
