Obama deliberately sabotaged Trump transition

Daily CallerAccording to The Times, Obama White House officials waged a campaign to procure, save and disperse classified intelligence regarding Trump associates’ contacts with Russians.

The campaign also involved curtailing the Trump team’s access to highly classified information and of lowering classification ratings on other information about the ongoing Russia investigation so that it could be more widely shared across the government.

According to The Times’ sources, the Obama officials waged the campaign out of fear that the Trump administration would cover up or destroy some of the information.

Bear in mind, as you read the above, that the New York Times is relying on anonymous Obama Administration sources to allege serious crimes (arguably treason) against Trump associates and ideally use them to paint Trump himself with the same brush. Yet no one has specified what those crimes are, other than talking to official Russian representatives about policy matters without actually saying or doing anything improper. Democrats (in the Senate, as well as in the Clinton campaign) were conducting similar meetings. This is, basically, diplomacy 101: meet with the foreign ambassadors you will need to conduct national business with.

The Obama administration claims to have thought these matters were serious enough that they feared a Trump coverup and distributed the "evidence" of his "crimes" to as many people within the intelligence community as possible, hoping that the "evidence" would be leaked to the press and cripple the incoming president. But when the Democrats were making similar contacts, this explanation doesn't hold water.

We're left with a desperate cover up. The Obama Administration used national security infrastructure -- wiretaps, hackers -- to try to put their thumb on the scale of the election. They failed. And now they are desperate to produce enough smoke to claim there was a fire all along and that makes what they did OK.

It's not OK, and the chickens will be coming home to roost, as someone famously said before being swept under the Obama bus.
