(Liberty Bell) – According to new claims by a whistleblower, the Treasury Department during the presidency of Barack Obama, regularly spied on Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s financial records and transactions, starting back in December of 2015 and continuing into 2017.
Is this really surprising to anyone? The Obama administration is probably the most corrupt group of individuals that have ever served in the United States government in the history of our country, and that’s really saying something. It’s always been about transforming America into a socialist country with Obama and his progressive friends. Whatever it takes to accomplish that goal, they’re willing to do it, including violating the rights of American citizens by abusing political power to spy on people.
Neil W. McCabe, a national political reporter for the Tennessee Star and The Star-News Network published an interview with this whistleblower on Monday.
Here’s more from BizPacReview:
“I started seeing things that were not correct, so I did my own little investigation because I wanted to make sure what I was seeing was correct,” she told the newspaper group. “You never want to draw attention to something if there is not anything there.”
The whistleblower claimed that she only saw metadata — names and dates when the former national security adviser’s financial records were accessed.
“I never saw what they saw,” she told the newsgroup, without saying who ‘they’ were.
By March 2016, the whistleblower and a colleague who was on detail to the Treasury Department from the intelligence community said they were convinced that Flynn’s surveillance was not part of any legitimate criminal probe or national security issues, but instead was being tracked for obvious political reasons as part of other illegal activity taking place at the agency.
“When I showed it to her, what she said, ‘Oh, s**t!’ and I knew right then and there that I was right — this is some shady stuff,” said the whistleblower.
She added: “It wasn’t just him. They were targeting other U.S. citizens as well.”
There are only two names that appear on her official whistleblower paperwork, Star Newspapers reported. The second is Paul Manafort, who once served as Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Unreal. It’s totally unreal that this is happening to people, right underneath our very noses. It’s time for some sort of action to be done that will hold individuals in the Obama administration accountable for their corrupt acts. If we do not take that action, others in the future will think that it is acceptable and will continue this awful trend of working in the shadows to undermine the very values that make our way of life so special.
Other names include members of Congress, top 2016 campaign staffers, and members of the president’s family, the whistleblower noted.
“Another thing they would do is take targeted names from a certain database – I cannot name, but you can guess – and they were going over to an unclassified database and they were running those names in the unclassified database,” she added.
That was done, she said, in order to bypass the need to use classified resources to spy on Americans because the entire operation was off the books — meaning it was never authorized through the proper channels or the Justice Department.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, folks. When all of this spying happened, Trump had just announced his candidacy for president. These people have been keeping tabs on him from the very beginning of his campaign. That’s how threatened they felt by him and what he planned to do in office. Obviously, Obama and friends felt that Trump was a threat to the plan they had for transforming America. They knew he would do what he said and tear down a lot of the infrastructure they built during the former administration.
A billionaire real estate developer and host of a successful reality TV show at the time, Donald Trump announced his bid for the GOP nomination in June 2015 during a speech and subsequent rally at Trump Tower in New York City.
Flynn met Trump in New York in August 2015, spending 90 minutes with him in a meeting that was only supposed to last for thirty. He left the meeting highly impressed. “I knew he was going to be president of the United States,” Flynn told New Yorker magazine.
In December of that year, Flynn took a paid trip to Moscow, where he dined with President Vladimir Putin at an event for RT, the state-run television network. But it wasn’t to hobnob with the Russian leader; Flynn was invited to speak as head of the Flynn Intel Group Inc., a company he formed after he retired from the Army in 2014. The company provided intelligence services for businesses and governments.
Why did Flynn retire? Because he was fired as the Defense Intelligence Service director by President Obama, who had appointed him.
Why did Obama fire him? Because Flynn was very opposed to the Iran deal Obama was trying to make.
Flynn’s December 2015 trip to Russia came shortly before reports noted that he had become an adviser to the Trump campaign.
The future short-lived national security adviser’s trip to Moscow after his lengthy visit with Trump a few months earlier could have provided the impetus for the Obama administration (and, possibly, the ex-president himself) to order surveillance of Flynn and other Trump officials via a non-traditional channel: The Treasury Department’s Office of Intelligence Analysis.
Just imagine how many other people the Obama administration probably treated like this during the eight years he was in office. It’s astounding to think of all the abuse of power this man committed, right there in the shadows of the Oval Office. As more of this gets uncovered, we the people need to stand up and demand justice.
The Deep State must be dismantled and removed from the inside of the government. Trump must be surrounded by individuals who have his best interests at heart and believe in his America first agenda. Here’s to hoping we see it sooner, rather than later.
