The mainstream media has spent the past year ridiculing Donald Trump for claiming that Barack Obama spied on him during the 2016 presidential election. Trump was finally just vindicated, however, when it was revealed that Obama did indeed unconstitutionally spy on Trump during the election.
Freedom Daily reported that now, Lt. Col Tony Shaffer has revealed that Obama’s wiretapping was not only a federal crime, but also that this investigation will likely end with Obama being hit with felony charges. Shaffer called Obamagate an “order of magnitude” that was even bigger than the Watergate scandal because the incident included “using nation-state resources for purposes of political gain.”
When asked if Obama could be arrested for this, Shaffer said it would be the “first time a former president could be indicted for a felony.”
“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 added.
Shaffer explained that Obama used government resources to spy on Trump to try and get Hillary Clinton in office, as he was hoping the wiretapping would produce enough “dirt” on Trump to sabotage his presidential run.
Shaffer has had a lengthy military career and has risen to the top of the American intelligence community. Given his current senior position at the prestigious London Center for Policy Research, his prediction about Obama has likely sent the president into full panic mode. Obama had planned to make a return to politics this year to try and help Democrats win back Congress in 2018, but this would completely derail that, as it would mean Obama wound need to focus all of his energy on staying out of prison.
