    You need to stop eating your tinfoil hats. It is just fucking with your brain. Yes, the media who you listen to is lying to you. Oh, and it is not the Obama people denying these lies. It is the republican head of the FBI. It is repeated republican people in our government who hate Obama. Even most cucks know trump and his people are making this up as a smokescreen because people like you will buy into it.

    You need to go get help. You are seriously delusional and mentally ill. It is really messing with your happiness and well-being when you have freak outs over Obama who has no power anymore. Trump is a loser, and Obama did not make him that way with phone taps. He was born that way.

    Now I realize someone as far into the Right Wing Bubble as you processing facts isn't really possible but for others interested, here is 50 U.S. Code 1802 (a)
    (1)Notwithstanding any other law, the President, through the Attorney General, may authorize electronic surveillance without a court order under this subchapter to acquire foreign intelligence information for periods of up to one year if the Attorney General certifies in writing under oath that—
    ....
    (B)
    there is no substantial likelihood that the surveillance will acquire the contents of any communication to which a United States person is a party; and

    The FISA warrant was aimed at Trump and his people. Not the Russians.

    The Obama administration was not tapping the Russians and picking up the Americans. It was tapping the Americans.

    The Americans could have been talking to anyone and they would have been tapped.

    You do realize why I almost never reply to you?

    At least Anc and the other lefties make arguments. You just spew forth diarrhea.

    Honest question, did you not read the article you just posted or are you unable to comprehend it?

    YOU'RE OWN LINK CONTRADICTS YOUR STATEMENT YOU DUMB FUCK. According to YOUR LINK this FISA warrant wasn't about wire taping Trump or his campaign, but instead being able to legally process intel handed over by allied intelligence agencies.

    From YOUR OWN LINK:
    The warrant was sought, they say, because actionable intelligence on the matter provided by friendly foreign agencies could not properly be examined without a warrant by US intelligence as it involves ‘US Persons’ who come under the remit of the FBI and not the CIA.

    Yes, I do realize you cannot refute the arguments I make. I am fine with that. Make whatever excuses make you feel better. It changes reality just as much as your pro cheeto lies.

    You are just making bold faced lies so there is no need. Why should I argue against something that does not exist? You have posted no proof of any actual wiretapping illegal or otherwise.

    Anc, the CIA and NSA are not allowed to wiretap in the US just like how British GCHQ is not allowed to wiretap in the UK. To get around this the US gets GCHQ to tap US communications and the US does the same for the UK then they share with each other. That is how they get around the no domestic wiretaps issue while making sure they both have the contents they want.

    According to Zombie's OWN LINK, it requires a FISA warrant to process such intel.

    In case you missed it, here is the relevant paragraph again:
    The warrant was sought, they say, because actionable intelligence on the matter provided by friendly foreign agencies could not properly be examined without a warrant by US intelligence as it involves ‘US Persons’ who come under the remit of the FBI and not the CIA.

    A 'United States Person' is a citizen, Lawful Permanent Resident (Green Card holder) or corporation.

    So with the WH coming out today and admitting Trump had zero evidence for his tweet and it was based solely on the Brietbart piece (which was based solely on a right wing talkshow host's speculation, which he has since walked back), I'm going to go out on a limb and say that your silence indicates that no, you don't want to try again.

    Turns out the lady that originally broke the story about the FISA warrant requests that was the source of the Breitbart article is wondering where this talk of wire taps is coming from.

    Oh fuck, Louise Mensch is the source of all this? I saw an article by her after the tweets and assumed it was an op-ed on Trump's claim, not an ass-cover.

    That woman is a batshit, hateful loon. UK version of Ann Coulter.

    Fun fact, I got kicked off GallifreyBase forums for saying she looked like all the goodness had been sucked out of her and then been stung by thousands of wasps filled with piss and bile.

    Zombie will be right along to refute her and cite the FISA stuff as evidence Trump is telling the truth.

    I first read this as mailing bees. I figured it was something Dr. Evil would do to Austin Powers, but the bees died in transit. Then Scott would come up with a simpler more effective plan and Dr. Evil would reject it.

    When ever Trump gets bad press he seems to try to knock it out of the headlines by making some sensational claim. This appears to be yet another case of him doing this.

    It is like how the clown/magician will distract people by saying look at this in my hand while he does some slight of hand trick with his other hand.

    'Lit's a rather strong word. 'Attempted' is more accurate, I'd say, but props for that.
