For the past year, the mainstream media has been mocking the president for claiming that former president Obama spied on him during the 2016 presidential election, and he was just vindicated, after the revelation of Obama indeed unconstitutionally spying on Trump during the election.
According to Freedom Daily, Lt. Col Tony Shaffer has stated that Obama’s wiretapping was a federal crime and that this investigation will probably end with Obama being hit with felony charges. Shaffer called Obamagate an “order of magnitude” bigger than even the Watergate scandal, because the incident included “using nation-state resources for purposes of political gain”.
When asked if the former president could be arrested for this, he stated the following:
“That would be the first time a former president to be indicted for a felony. I believe it is possible that he acted outside of the scope of his duties, responsibilities and authorities to turn the resources of a nation-state on a candidate. As I’ve already said – this is soviet-dictator level wrongdoing.”
In addition, he said that Barack Obama spied on Trump in order to get Hillary in office by using government resources, hoping he wluld get enough ‘dirt’ on Trump through the wiretapping that could sabotage his presidential run.
Shaffer has had a lengthy military career. He has risen to the top of the American intelligence community. Keeping in mind his senior position at the prestigious London Center for Policy Research at this moment, his prediction about Barack Obama has probably sent the president into full panic mode.
Obama wanted to return to politics this year in order to help Dems win back Congress in 2018, which would completely derail that as it would mean Obama would need to focus on keeping himself out of prison.
