Washington (CNN)US investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the election, sources tell CNN, an extraordinary step involving a high-ranking campaign official now at the center of the Russia meddling probe.

The government snooping continued into early this year, including a period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump.

Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation. Two of these sources, however, cautioned that the evidence is not conclusive.

Remember when Trump was mocked for claiming his campaign was wiretapped by the Obama administration?

It was supposed to be a hillary coronation. Lynch would remain as AG. Brennan at CIA, Comey at FBI, and Clapper at NSA. And this would have been buried with 33,000 emails.

Notice how CNN is attempting to spin this as a “Russian collusion” story.

The Swamp must know this is coming out, so this is an early attempt to defuse it.

Then this is the official death of “Muh Russia!”. Given that they were tapping his phone(s) since before the election, and that there have been no leaks of any so-called “smoking gun” malfeasance or illegality, we can conclude that neither Manafort nor anybody he spoke to on the phone for some number of months before and after the election did anything to support the wishes of the chasers of the wild goose.

Had to be triggered by the fake Trump dossier.

If only we had a decent Attorney General. He could be wrapping this around the neck of the entire Obama administration, including Obama.

If the weasel cannot find it within himself to jump on all of this, he should resign, or be fired.

Because virtually all of the trouble the past 9 years involves him and/or comes from his associates and masters.

No one should ever forget that.

Full circle. Here it is. This is the extremely weak justification for the illegal surveillance on Trump and many, many others. No wonder the MSM and RAT leaders were amped up to spend so much time and energy on this. The Obama administration is busted, BIG TIME!!! I called this long ago “Russia, Russia, Russia” was purely preemptive as a cover for this REAL crime.

I cringe at the thought of how close Hillary came to pulling off the biggest crime in Americas history.

Believe me, I wish I had NEVER heard of that Nigerian Scam Artist. I have never had such difficulty in my existence since this con-man hit the world stage.

So I’m with ya. I hate it too, really.
