The mainstream media didn’t support the accusations made by President Donald Trump regarding the wiretapping scandal. The whole surveillance thing caused an immense chaos, and but it turns out that the President was the only person who was convinced that Obama and his people gathered information from his private conversations.
President Trump tweeted about Obama’s wiretapping earlier this month, and the media only tried to make it look like a crazy joke. Well, this doesn’t come as a surprise, because the President already knows that he can’t rely on the support of most news outlets.Representative Devin Nunes, R-Calif., came with official confirmation about the fact that “intelligence officials collected some conversations involving members of President Trump’s transition team.” It looks like someone just put make up on the whole story. Reports confirm that the private conversations were 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 explained.
He also revealed that the information was obtained by people who “thought the Intelligence Committee should have it,” adding that he was “alarmed” by the revelation.
Reporters wondered if the information was collected at Trump Tower, but Nunes didn’t gave a specific answer. “We don’t know. We don’t know that,” responded Nunes.
One of the reporters wanted to know if the government spied on the President. “Well, I guess it all depends on one’s definition of spying,” Nunes said. “I mean clearly it bothers me enough, I’m not comfortable with it, and I want to make sure the White House understands it.”
What do you think about the comments Nunes made? Do you think Obama will pay for wiretapping President Trump?
