The Obama administration wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the 2016 election, CNN reports.
In other words, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin was right, and now the mainstream media’s deceitful malpractice is on display for all to see. Obama and Hillary’s shameless media lapdogs, the “Praetorian Guard,” wanted to ignore the truth at every turn, and now they can’t.
The unsurprising wiretapping revelation comes months after Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin laid out the case, based on mainstream media reports, that the Obama administration obtained a FISA court warrant to surveil members of the Trump campaign to an unknown extent.
According to CNN, the Obama administration’s surveillance of Mr. Manafort began sometime after an investigation related to work Manafort had done in Ukraine was opened in 2014. This surveillance was closed sometime last year, due to lack of evidence, and the Obama administration eventually obtained a new FISA court order. That round of surveillance extended into early 2017, sources told CNN.
CNN’s sources claim the second FISA warrant was part of the FBI’s investigation into “ties between Trump campaign associates and suspected Russian operatives.” Importantly – and this is key – the surveillance on Mr. Manafort allegedly took place during a period when Manafort was having conversations with Donald Trump.
“It's unclear whether Trump himself was picked up on the surveillance,” CNN states.
