Trump orders U.S. intelligence to assist in surveillance investigation around 2016 campaign

Source: CBS

President Trump ordered the intelligence community to cooperate with Attorney General William Barr's investigation into surveillance activities surrounding Mr. Trump's 2016 campaign, according to a memo from the White House. The memo also said Barr has been "delegated full and complete authority to declassify information" related to the investigation.

"Today's action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

In congressional testimony last month, Barr said he believes "spying did occur during the campaign," a belief shared by Mr. Trump. "I just want to satisfy myself that there were no abuse of law enforcement or intelligence powers," Barr told a Senate panel.

1. It means they've found some damaging info on Dems they want to get public ASAP.

Or at least something they can spin that way.

2. It also means the GOP can run info directly to Putin's counterintelligence

CIA operatives and NATO friendly Russian spy assets are going to die and die quickly.

This is outrageous! Why not just open up every PDB and fax it to Putin. Oh, what an idiot I am. Team tRump's been doing that from the beginning. The U.S. is fucked!

3. Oh it's definitely a strategy that Trump and Barr have come up with to combat Dems.

 

So let's see they tell us there are Dems who hired prostitutes for sex? Dems that cheated on their wives?

5. So, maybe Comey should have done a letter on the Trumps and their Russian connections

Instead of that, hair on fire, letter on Hillary's e-mails, right before the election.

Maybe all those RepubliCONS in the FBI shouldn't have been so anti-Hillary that they let traitors into the White House. Maybe then they wouldn't be under investigation right now for doing their job. Unintended consequences of putting party before country.
