One of the biggest news stories of 2017 thus far has to be the whole Obama surveilling Trump during the election deal.
There’s been much back and forth between the individuals involved in the situation, which is making our former president’s administration look even more shady than it previously did, an impressive accomplishment when you look at the scandals that already plagued the Obama-era White House.
Well, it looks like the plot continues to thicken.
Apparently Obama officials created a list of Russia probe documents and gave them to the Senate Intelligence Committee to “keep them safe.”
According to NBC News, Obama administration officials were so concerned about what would happen to key classified documents related to the Russia probe once President Trump took office that they created a list of document serial numbers to give to senior members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, a former Obama official told NBC News.
The official said that after the list of documents related to the probe into Russian interference in the U.S. election was created in early January, he hand-carried it to the committee members. The numbers themselves were not classified, said the official.
The purpose, said the official, was to make it “harder to bury” the information, “to share it with those on the Hill who could lawfully see the documents,” and to make sure it could reside in an Intelligence committee safe, “not just at Langley [CIA hq].”
So they wanted classified information to be easier to find? Without a warrant?
No, that doesn’t seem strange at all, now does it?
One of the reasons this is such a huge deal is because it once again points to how liberals like Obama can do things that are illegal for the sake of pushing their own agenda with no worry or concern about being held accountable for their actions.
Let’s hope someone gets to the bottom of all this soon and those involved learn there are consequences for their actions.
