CNN investigation bolsters but doesn’t prove Trump’s claim … When Donald Trump tweeted that Trump Tower had “wires tapped” in March 2017, there was outrage among the chattering class, especially at CNN, at his assertion “without evidence.” Yesterday, the CNN investigative unit raised serious questions about whether Trump was right all along. They showed that a Trump campaign official, Paul Manafort, was wiretapped. While this report doesn’t prove that Trump Tower was wiretapped, someone who worked daily at Trump Tower most certainly was.
CNN’s Stelter, ABC’s Ross, and the rest of the media owe Levin an apology … Prior to Trump’s tweet, using evidence gleaned from published reports in the New York Times and other outlets, CR Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin shared evidence that the Obama administration had obtained a FISA warrant to surveil people in the Trump campaign. If accurate, yesterday’s CNN report conclusively proves that Levin was right. CNN’s Brian Stelter went hard at Levin in March, and ABC’s Brian Ross said Levin was “conspiracy-loving.” CR’s Chris Pandolfo lays out the case that Levin is owed a huge apology.
Why the surprise? … Using the power of the government to surveil a political opponent is, as Joe Biden would say, a “big effing deal.” The media knows that. Is that why, despite numerous stories alleging that government surveillance of members of the Trump campaign had happened, the media didn’t connect the dots, as Levin did? At Mediaite, Larry O’Connor reminds CNN that it was Levin who “told us about the Manafort wiretap months ago.”
