• That January Meeting: Indications Barack Obama Aware of Illegal Spying on Trump Campaign

    Surge Summary: New information reveals Barack Obama was aware government agents were illegally spying on the Trump campaign and transition team – and that at least one Obama staffer made an attempt after the fact to cover it up.

    I know this has been going on so long and is somewhat confusing.  That’s what the Obama/Biden crowd is counting on.  But I want to revisit the extraordinary meeting that took place on January 5, 2017, at the White House, just two weeks before Donald Trump’s inauguration.

    The nation’s intelligence chiefs were summoned to the White House – FBI Director James Comey, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA Director John Brennan, National Security Adviser Susan Rice.  Also attending the meeting were Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and Vice President Joe Biden.

    They decided that President-elect Donald Trump should be told about the Russian dossier, but they did not tell him that they knew it was debunked.  It was decided that Comey would do that dirty work, and he flew to New York the next day to brief Trump.

    Once Comey gave Trump that briefing, the Deep State started leaking.  Days before Trump’s inauguration, there were multiple press reports about an ongoing investigation into whether the president-elect was compromised by the Russians.

    Back to the January 5th White House meeting.  At some point Brennan and Clapper leave, but Biden, Comey and Yates remained behind.  Obama then began discussing the intercepted call between Flynn and the Russian ambassador.

    Deputy Attorney General Yates did not know about that call, and she was shocked that Obama did know about it.  Someone, perhaps James Clapper, had apparently briefed Obama about it at some point.

    This meeting is one of the key events in the entire Russian collusion / Resistance effort.  One of the most significant pieces of evidence about this meeting is that infamous Susan Rice memo.

    On Inauguration Day, Susan Rice spent her final moments in the Obama White House writing a CYA memo or “cover your a– memo” to herself.  She curiously uses the phrase “by the book” twice.

    The memo appears to be after-the-fact evidence asserting that Obama directed everyone in the Russian collusion fiasco to do everything “by the book” because they didn’t.  That memo was written for a moment just like this.

    Don’t get me wrong.  I don’t think Barack Obama will be indicted or go to jail.  It is still very much up in the air whether anyone like Comey, Clapper or Brennan will pay a significant price for what they did.

    But the more the Deep State’s corruption is exposed, the more likely it is that the public will rally to President Trump’s defense.

    And there are some signs (here and here) that more corruption will soon be exposed.
