Absolutely. But no-one is going to jail... It's all theatrics and drama, that's it.

Watergate had to be a coup. Why did Nixon give two fucks, he'd won in a landslide and was in his second term already. He risked everything to gain...what?

If we had the scrutiny and power to share information back then that we do now, there's no way that it would pass the smell test.

2017-05-30 | Obama intel agencies may have spied on Trump campaign

'It now seems apparent that we overestimated the patriotism and professionalism of the people in these agencies, who allowed them to be politically weaponized by the Obama administration. '

'But when listening in on foreigners, the National Security Agency hoovers up a vast amount of stuff in bulk: Conversations between foreigners, conversations between Americans and foreigners, conversations between Americans who mention foreigners, and sometimes just plain old conversations between Americans. '

'Quite the Obama legacy.”POLICING THE USA: A look at race, justice, mediaWill the Justice Department investigate and prosecute former Obama officials?', "These safeguards were ignored wholesale under the Obama administration, and to many Republicans, it is no coincidence that intelligence leaks damaged Democrats' political opponents in the 2016 election."

'Ironically, they may be afraid to — for fear that intelligence agencies will engage in further targeted political leaks. '

This has been an automated message.

No question about it. The wiretapping of Watergate was a criminal conspiracy, but it was done by campaign members in private capacity. Most of the people involved were former or current government agents, sure, but they didn't bring in the resources of their agencies to carry out their crime; just the personal expertise and knowledge of espionage equipment of the time. Obama and his conspiracy spied on political opposition making full use of government resources and used information they knew was false (or worse, information they themselves had fabricated from the get-go) to secure warrants to carry out a wiretapping that should never have been allowed. They not only illegally spied on their opponents, but also turned federal intelligence and law enforcement into a tool for spying on political opponents.

Didn't we know so of this years ago? The real news is that the MSM is actually reporting on it.

Everything the government does is progressively more egregious.

Yes because Obama did it while eating hotdogs and fucking a tranny.

Yes and those in the Nixon admin were brought to justice while Obama's spies are free to spy even more.
