NUNES: Trump Transition Team WAS Under Surveillance; Did Comey Lie?

“I recently confirmed that on numerous occasions, the intelligence community collected information on U.S. individuals involved in the Trump transition,” Nunes said.

    Nunes told reporters the conversations were “incidentally” collected as part of intelligence sweeps focusing on other people and implied that Trump was not the target of the surveillance operation.

    The comments by Nunes do not appear to support Trump’s claims, debunked by FBI Director James Comey, that he was wiretapped by his predecessor President Barack Obama. Rather, they appear to relate to conversations between Trump or associates and people who were targeted by FISA warrants — that Nunes said did not appear to be illegal.

      Who issued the warrants and why? Nune’s is saying that the wiretaps don’t seem to have anything to do with Russia. Actually, Nunes’s comments seem to be saying that although technically legal, there’s something fishy about why exactly the wiretaps were done.

      Let’s wait a week or two and see if Comey is a bad guy to liberals again. The odds seem about 50/50 either way.

      It’s all of this dancing around words and their actual meaning that made me dislike Obama in the first place. Ok, from some technical standpoint, Obama didn’t himself wiretap Trump towers, just as he didn’t actually kill Osama himself, with his own hands. (or at all for that matter, but that’s another conversation)

      Trump was wiretapped, I’m guessing that that means Trump towers might as well have been. It was done by someone, who took orders from…someone.

        How refreshing!! input from ericson that doesn’t resort to name-calling, personal attacks of derision and profanity that goes without being being chastised or censored by this sites host.

        “Actually, Nunes’s comments seem to be saying that although technically legal, there’s something fishy about why exactly the wiretaps were done.”

        How exactly do the comments “seem to be saying” this?

        What is most interesting is that if the FISA wiretaps -approved and issued by a judge for suspicion of un-American activities- were surveillance of individuals not part of the tRump team who were suspected of un-American activities, why was the tRump team in contact with them?

      • Brother Strawberry says:

        tRump was NOT wiretapped!!
        Members of the transition team were communicating with those who were wire tapped under suspicion of in-American activities.
        Why were members of the transition team in communication with those suspected of in-American activities?

          I don’t think I can say it better than this article does.

          “Moreover, it is public knowledge that three days before the inauguration in January, for no legitimate purpose, President Obama authorized wide distribution of the surveillance reports to 16 other agencies, the names of U.S. persons involved in the conversations were not redacted, the contents were of no intelligence value and they were widely leaked — a perfectly predictable consequence of spreading the raw data so widely in contrast to normal redaction and dissemination patterns. Suspicious minds like mine think may well be to further hamper the incoming administration by leaks designed to embarrass members of his team. Nunes also reported the post-election spying “had nothing to do with Russia.” By January 20, for example, the New York Times reported that Trump had been wiretapped.”

        I thought that was osama bin laden hanging out with Elvis, James Dean and Michael Jackson at Denny’s last Saturday.

          That would be more believable, or at least desirable, than landing 3 helicopters, 1 of which was experimental, engaging in a shoot out, or not, while the president and his cabinet was watching, wait, no they weren’t , while they brought OSBL in for questioning, wait, I mean shot him dead, and then gave him a proper Muslim burial, wait…I mean dumped his body into the ocean…for some reason.

    Yes, i need to read more into it, BUT it was all over CNN today. They keep asking the people they’re interviewing the same question over and over again. “Are you absolutely sure there is new evidence that Trump was picked up on surveillance by the former administration?” They look like complete idiots for attacking him about it. And the Rachelle Maddow, tax return show….. wow!
