CLINTON COLLUSION: Trump Says Obama LAUNCHED INVESTIGATION to ‘Discredit’ His Campaign

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.05.18

The President openly slammed his predecessor on social media Monday morning, saying Barack Obama launched an investigation into his campaign to “discredit” Donald Trump in the run-up to the 2016 general election.

The President vented his frustration on twitter this week, blasting Obama’s election interference with “zero proof of wrongdoing” in the months leading up to Election Day; adding he “did nothing” to prevent Russian meddling and labeling the ongoing scandal “bigger than Watergate.”

“Why did the Obama Administration start an investigation into the Trump Campaign (with zero proof of wrongdoing) long before the Election in November? Wanted to discredit so Crooked H would win. Unprecedented. Bigger than Watergate! Plus, Obama did NOTHING about Russian meddling,” he tweeted.

The President’s comments come as the Justice Department opens its own investigation into the Obama administration’s use of the Clinton-financed ‘Steele Dossier’ to obtain FISA warrants against senior Trump officials in 2016.

COLLUSION CHAOS: Robert Mueller DISMISSES CHARGES Against Former Trump Insider

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office moved to officially dismiss recent charges against Rick Gates Tuesday afternoon, after the former deputy chairman to President Trump’s 2016 campaign pleaded guilty to charges of money laundering and tax fraud, reports the Washington Post.

Both Gates and Manafort were previously indicted with multiple counts of conspiracy to launder money, acting as unregistered agents on behalf of foreign governments, making false statements, and failure to disclose financial records.

The special counsel’s office decision to drop the charges signals Gates may be offering to cooperate with Mueller’s probe into Manafort’s finances; further suggesting the ongoing investigation into Russian “collusion” centers on the former campaign chairman’s foreign investments and financial ties.

Rick Gates joined the Trump campaign in the early months of 2016 after Manafort was hired as chairman, and worked under him as his deputy in the run-up to the US presidential election.

Paul Manafort has maintained his innocence throughout Mueller’s probe, vowing to fight the allegations in court since his initial indictment last October.

The left-wing conspiracy theory that the Trump campaign “colluded” with Russian officials ahead of the 2016 presidential campaign continued to crash and burn Friday, with Robert Mueller’s indictment showing the foreign nationals began meddling in US politics one year before Donald Trump announced his run for office.

The bombshell indictment of 13 Russian nationals and three foreign “entities” shocked the nation’s capital Friday afternoon, with Mueller’s probe saying the interference began back in 2014 when the Russian-backed “Internet Research Agency” began spreading misinformation on social media.

“According to the indictment, the Internet Research Agency, a Russian troll farm, started interfering as early as 2014 in U.S. politics, extending to the 2016 presidential election,” writes the Chicago Tribune. “The defendants, ‘posing as U.S. persons and creating false U.S. personas,’ operated social media groups designed to attract U.S. audiences by stealing U.S. identities and falsely claiming to be U.S. activists.”

The explosive indictment also says the Russian actors contacted “unwitting” members of the Trump campaign, concealing their nationality in an attempt to sow chaos ahead of the 2016 election.
