The problem for federal investigators is the initial NBC story revealed potential and very significant illegalities in what they were doing. A swift call was made. NBC updated the story and now the Mueller investigation holds its breath hoping it dodged a potential bullet.
All evidence as originally detailed by the NBC report points to the federal government using a president’s longtime personal attorney to surveil a sitting president. Such a move is unprecedented. If this had been done during the Obama years the Establishment Media mob would be demanding jail time for the offenders and the Justice Department would be moving double-time to accommodate them.
The Cohen/Trump surveillance wasn’t just phone calls – it was allegedly ALL electronic communications as outlined by NBC – an outline NBC is now desperate to hope people will forget. Note how the information is said to be undeniable fact. Why is that?
