@Regrann from @true.45 - House Intelligence Chairman #DevinNunes tried to exonerate Donald Trump’s unfounded wiretapping accusations against President Obama, but in the process he ended up revealing that the alleged wiretap was legal and done under a FISA warrant, which means the people being surveilled are either foreign powers/agents and or may be involved in the commission of a crime.
So that’s not exactly a win for Nunes or Trump.
Nunes said on Wednesday that Trump might have been wiretapped as a part of “incidental collection.” (One might think the Trump would have been briefed but if he, and perhaps Nunes were a part of whatever the concerns were, they wouldn’t have been briefed.) The problem with that is a #FISA warrant must certify that the “target of the proposed surveillance is either a ‘foreign power’ or ‘the agent of a foreign power’ and, in the case of a U.S. citizen or resident alien, that the target may be involved in the commission of a crime.”
Multiple sources confirm that Nunes didn’t share his “findings” with Adam Schiff, the ranking Intelligence Committee Democrat. This was a Hail Mary move by Nunes to save Trump’s presidency, and perhaps his own career. It will distract the press for another few days. But then it will dawn on everyone that if it was collectedly legally under a FISA warrant, this is bad news for Trump. All roads look like they lead to impeachment for this President.
That is not a speedy process, and it has to be done correctly – that is to say, unlike how Republicans operate, the evidence must dictate direction. Justice is slow, but when she gets there, she is brutal.
