Former Intel Officer Says Obama Could Be First Former President with a Felony Indictment
President Donald Trump shocked America with his accusations of the wiretapping scandal that was supposed to bring out his non-existing friendship with Russia. He accused the administration of former president Obama, and claimed that he was illegally wiretapped during the election season.
While there of course has been substantial pushback against the extreme accusation by both the media and Obama’s people, there does seem to be some circumstantial evidence that Trump’s allegations were correct — at least more than any proving Trump was somehow colluding with the Russian government.
If indeed it does turn out to be the case that the Obama administration illegally surveilled Trump’s team ahead of Election Day as some have speculated, the end result could be the unprecedented indictment of a former president on felony charges.
So a highly respected former senior intelligence officer, retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, a former intelligence officer talked on “Trending Today USA.”
Calling the alleged incident an “order of magnitude” bigger than the Watergate scandal, Shaffer stated that the incident would have included “using nation-state resources for purposes of political gain.”
Humphries asked if, should everything turn out to be true, Obama would be arrested and held accountable for violating the laws.
“This could be the first time a former president could be indicted for a felony,” Shaffer answered. “Because I think it is very 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.”
“This is, as I’ve said before, soviet-dictator level wrongdoing,” he said.
The wiretapping scandal shocked everyone, and although some people weren’t surprised with Obama’s request to break President Trump’s privacy, most of them never thought that something like this can happen during the election season. There’s no excuse for such actions, and we can only wait to see the further development of the events. Liberals seem to be pretty quiet about this, and we can only imagine what would’ve happen if one of them was wiretapped.
