The news broke and then both outrage from Trump supporters and glee from Trump detractors, ensued.
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? Most likely because it came from the same Mueller sources that have been leaking to NBC and other media outlets since its illegal investigation into President Trump began: (see below)
The Deep State was caught by its own eagerness to push its anti-Trump media-driven narrative.
If Jeff Sessions were acting anything close to a real Attorney General, he would be calling in any and all associated with the Trump witch hunt and proceeding with a scorched earth shutdown and then following up with charges filed against the investigators – including Robert Mueller.
Will this outrage stand? Today’s breaking story of the DOJ surveilling the communications of POTUS Trump’s longtime personal attorney is just now filtering through news watchers across the country. Remember, the Cohen surveillance was referred to by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, (and signed off by the DOJ’s #2 Rod Rosenstein who was the one who originally pushed for President Trump to fire then FBI Director James Comey) meaning it was effectively Mueller’s operation. And what THAT means is Robert Mueller was wiretapping the Trump White House.
THIS HAS NEVER BEEN ALLOWED BEFORE.
Early reports indicate at least one direct phone call between President Trump and Cohen was surveilled/recorded. In a normal world, as soon as the President of the United States was on the line, the DOJ would have initiated an all stop on surveillance. That has been long-standing (albeit unofficial) protocol for decades.
That didn’t happen which would indicate capturing the President’s communications to Cohen was the primary purpose of the Mueller-originating surveillance all along.
Consider this that the Department of Justice is charged with upholding the powers of the Constitution but in this case (and likely many-many others) it has shredded those same Constitutional protections in order to bring down a duly-elected President of the United States.
When will enough Americans finally stand up and say ENOUGH? This is no longer merely about President Trump. It isn’t about Democrat or Republican, liberal or conservative. This is about America, our personal liberties, and the now-fractured foundation that was the Constitution. For if the government can go after a sitting president via such questionable/illegal means it can come after any of us at any time.
Hear that knock at your door?
It’s for you.
