    Fixed that for you.

    And under the law the President has the authority to authorize wire taps of foreign persons without the need for a warrant.

    Foreign persons outside the US. If he's calling the Russians within the US, a warrant is required.

    Seriously.

    We keep being told that there are crimes.

    Well, why hasn't Trump impeachment started yet?

    Why isn't the media screaming from one end of the planet to the other about the crimes?

    Because there isn't anything there.

    This is a manufactured scandal to take out Trump. We essentially have a shadow government of leftists doing their best to undermine Trump. Trump should just fire every single person hired by Obama the last eight years. Right down to the damn janitors if needed.

    You are absolutely right on this.

    Only a handful of them aren't cowards.

    The rest keep rolling over in fear.

    The fucking cowards don't realize what power they have.

    Democrats, dirtbag marxists, however have no fear of using power. Fed Farm guy is wrong.

    Oh and let's not forget the Obama administration called Jim Rosen of Fox News a criminal conspirator and wiretapped him AND described him as a flight risk in order to conceal from him that they were investigating him for reporting stories that were leaked to him.

    Don't worry, someday they may find a cure for Obama derangement syndrome. If not you will have release on death. So much concern over Obama and he is not even president anymore.

    it's no secret that not a few folks on the left have been saying ever since the election that Obama's underlings (and sometimes he himself) created a lot of (unwise or improper) tools that Trump would then be free to use and abuse.

    One might, however, point out that those on the right like Fox who were shocked and outraged 3 years ago that reporters seeking out leaks were being pursued now are only shocked and outraged that any leaking is going on...

    But more to the point, this improper behavior does not disprove the claim that POTUS can't arbitrarily order wiretaps. Nothing in the Rosen story indicates Obama personally and arbitrarily brought him under surveillance.

    As with the current matter, they have to convince a FISA court such a warrant is justified.

    I'm sure we'll all be fascinated to see how it plays out.

    I do find it remarkable how the Right is willing to speak to the matter with such boldness. If we were speaking of President Pence I could see being confident but it's fascinating when everyone across the spectrum knows what a circus Trump is and they STILL boldly predict there's no possibility of wrongdoing.

    I've seen it reported that Trump actual abhors alcohol and drinking, one speculated that if Bannon ever gets on Trump's bad side it will be because he comes to work hung over most days.

    The arrow on the left, in this case, would be Levin's speculating.

    Levin worked at the White House during the Reagan administration and he's a knowledgeable lawyer, he knows his shit.

    Sure! Investigate it ALL - with an independent prosecutor. If Obama or his agents are attempting to remove a siting president with fabricated evidence, regardless of party, i want to know!

    BUT at the same time, if the evidence is NOT fabricated and wrongdoing on the part of the Trump team happened, i want to know that too.

    Drag it all out into the daylight and let the fucking chips fall.

    Let's do the damn thing and see who comes out with dirt on their hands.

    I used to live in the echo chamber. I know all the words to that song.

    I can produce folks on the left who used to work in the White House and "know their shit" who say levin is full of it...i doubt seriously that will be convincing to you.

    Levin sees the situation through hyper-partisan lenses, you can't ignore that when pimping his credibility.

    Levin is hyper partisan from time to time, but it doesn't make him wrong in certain areas when it comes to law. I don't always agree with Levin, he's hostile towards libertarians, yet still interacts with them and often does fair interviews with Reason Magazine. He's certainly criticized Trump and Brietbart.

    You mean for the war Bush started based on lies, or how he crashed our economy just in time for Obama to rescue it? Nope, those were real things not imaginary things from the delusional alt right mind.

    Now, can you tell us again how you are not an alt right trump apologist bafoon? You do seem to keep ending up on his bandwagon.

    Bush ruined the economy? Was it Bush who got rid of the Glass-Steagall act, because that's what allowed the banks to do what they did? That was all Bubbah.

    So you're conceding that deregulation isn't always good? Interesting.

    I concede that some regulation are needed, however; libertarians, that I'm aware of, have never argued that there should never be regulation, only that there should be a freeing of certain types of ted tape. Most libertarians favor the reinstatement of the Glass-Stegall Act.:shrug: . Sorry to Burst your preconceptions.

    Yes, running a war over the middle east on credit had absolutely nothing to do with the crash. Look here the boy, at least listen to the whole story before parroting and blaming. The door was opened. Bush could have shut it instead of walking through and charging his war. That is not to mention his stimulus checks which kept commerce artificially stimulated until the next guy got into office. He kept the shit up just long enough to dump it onto Obama and assholes like you try to confuse the issue by blaming the guy in charge when the system collapsed. It is like blaming the bottom rung of a pyramid scheme for why it does not work.

    The only thing I have to wonder is if you will still be pretending trump is awesome and it is all Obama's fault in four years. You have some people around here thinking you might have a brain, but I see the excuses flowing for the cheeto. I am pretty sure a true libertarian would find a fascist to be detestable but you don't. Either you have a bad case of Obama derangement syndrome and it is rotting your common sense sectors of your brain, or you are a trumptard.

    If Trump wants to make such claims, he needs to show evidence. So far he hasn't. So I'm going to assume this is just more of his nonsense.
