That was the suggested scenario offered up today by Fox Business contributor, Charlie Gasparino during a segment with Neil Cavuto. (awaiting video)
It is an interesting and plausible premise. The Obama government needs no court approval to monitor communications of foreign agents. One or more Russian operatives who were already being monitored, were then instructed to repeatedly communicate to Trump campaign associates. Those communications could then be monitored and none would require court approval.
Might this scenario be the origination of all the Trump-related “wiretapped” information cited earlier by such publications as the New York Times? (It is believed this was the method used to push General Michael Flynn into resigning his position as Trump National Security Adviser and might also be the same tool used against current Trump Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. Remember, it was the Obama White House that actually set up the first of two meetings between then-Senator Sessions and the Russian ambassador.)
