    The Coach's Team ^ | Saturday, March 25, 2017 | Jim Emerson, staff writer
    In a twist of fate the House Intelligence Committee investigation turned its attention to newly disclosed intelligence reports that suggested the Obama administration directed the electronic surveillance and dissemination of reports targeting President Trump and his transition team prior to the new president’s inauguration. The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), hinted that the previous administration used intelligence assets to spy on the communications of the incoming Administration. According to Nunes, the suggestion that intelligence gathered on American citizens was “incidental,” this is nothing more than legalese designed to provide cover for the conduct of...

    Last night we highlighted a Fox News story which suggested that Devin Nunes expected the NSA to deliver a "smoking gun" which would prove that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, as early as today. Moments ago, Nunes fanned that speculation by holding an impromptu press conference announcing that he'll call both FBI Director Comey and NSA Director Rogers before a closed session of the House Intelligence Committee to discuss topics which "they couldn't answer in a public setting."

    Fox News reported Thursday that GOP congressional investigators are expecting to see evidence soon showing that the Obama administration surveilled President Trump's transition team. An unnamed source told the news channel that the "smoking gun" evidence will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week. The committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) on Wednesday announced to the press that he had seen intelligence reports showing that members of Trump's transition team were "incidentally" swept up in legal intelligence collection of foreign targets. Nunes briefed the White House on what he had seen, but the documents or their source have...

    Trump jokingly told a rally crowd he hoped that Putin/Russia would find and leak Hillary's missing emails. Nobody took it seriously. Everybody knows Trump was joking, but born out of this was the charge that Trump was in collusion with Putin to cheat the election. This only works because the MSM facilitates this. Chuck Schumer threatened Trump when he said that the intelligence agencies will make life difficult for him. This was sinister in nature -- compared to Trumps levity. It's pretty clear now that Schumer's threat was more than a threat. It was marching orders.

    The Washington Post's Bob Woodward warned on Wednesday that there are people from the Obama administration who could be facing criminal charges for unmasking the names of Trump transition team members from surveillance of foreign officials. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said earlier that he had briefed Trump on new information, unrelated to an investigation into Russian activities, that suggested that several members of Trump's transition team and perhaps Trump himself had their identities "unmasked" after their communications were intercepted by U.S. intelligence officials. The revelation is notable because identities of Americans are generally supposed to remain...

    Yesterday, Republican Devin Nunez Nunes held an explosive press conference outside the White House in which he told reporters that communications from the Trump team were picked up and disseminated within the government during the 2016 campaign. Not surprisingly, the comments ruffled some liberal feathers and the mainstream media launched an immediate smear campaign calling for Nunes to resign his post immediately. Now, according to Fox News sources, congressional investigators expect that a potential “smoking gun” from the NSA establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the...

Members of the intelligence community collected ‘incidental’ communications of the Trump transition team during legal surveillance operations, producing ‘dozens’ of reports which eventually unmasked several individuals’ identities and which were ‘widely disseminated,’ a top lawmaker said Wednesday afternoon. House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said none of the reports he had read mentioned Russia or Russians and he was unsure whether the surveillance occurred at Trump Tower.

    Justice: FBI Director James Comey told Congress that his agency is investigating President Trump's campaign for evidence it colluded with Russia to influence November's election. The only problem is he has no evidence at all that it has taken place. In his testimony to the House Intelligence Committee, Comey said that the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign's possible coordination with Russia's government as part of a "counterintelligence probe that could reach all the way to the White House and last for months." These are serious allegations. But both Comey and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers, who also testified,...

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which Congress passed in the aftermath of President Richard Nixon's use of the CIA and the FBI to spy on his political opponents, has unleashed demons that now seem beyond the government's control and are more pervasive than anything Nixon could have dreamed of. This realization came to a boiling point last weekend when President Donald Trump accused former President...

    1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied. 2. July 2016: The Russia joke. Wikileaks releases emails from the Democratic National Committee that show an effort to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from winning the presidential nomination. In a press conference, Donald Trump refers to Hillary Clinton’s own missing emails, joking: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.” That remark becomes the basis for accusations by Clinton...

    WikiLeaks' release of documents that provide details of alleged CIA hacking operations will be investigated by federal authorities, CNN reports. Citing several U.S. officials, CNN claims the FBI and the CIA will coordinate their reviews of how WikiLeaks acquired the documents, which officials said are in CNN's words "largely genuine," and if more will follow. The officials have yet to determine how much of the release is accurate or if any have been altered before being released.

    The White House is aware of phone calls between retired lieutenant-general Michael Flynn and ambassador Sergey Kislyak, a senior US official told the Associated Press. It is not clear how the current administration learned of the contacts, although the AP noted that US monitoring of Russian officials’ communication within America is known to be common. … Flynn’s contacts with Kislyak reportedly included several calls on 29 December This article is dated Jan 13, 2017. So this is clearly the Obama White House. And since it is a communications intercept from the NSA, it is clear the Obama White House was...

    Legendary NSA whistleblower William Binney (and creator of NSA's global surveillance system) confirmed to Fox News, that President Trump is "absolutely right" to claim he was wiretapped and monitored... he was. As we noted previously, Binney is the NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information, who served as the senior technical director within the agency, who managed six thousand NSA employees, the 36-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency and the NSA’s best-ever analyst and code-breaker, who mapped out the Soviet command-and-control structure before anyone else knew how, and so predicted...

    President Donald Trump is "absolutely right" to claim he was wiretapped and monitored, a former NSA official claimed Monday, adding that the administration risks falling victim to further leaks if it continues to run afoul of the intelligence community. "I think the president is absolutely right. His phone calls, everything he did electronically, was being monitored," Bill Binney, a 36-year veteran of the National Security Agency who resigned in protest from the organization in 2001, told Fox Business on Monday. Everyone's conversations are being monitored and stored, Binney said. Trump's Base Is Standing Firm Binney resigned from NSA shortly after...
  • Will Trump's Wiretap Claim Prove True?

    Yes, it’s possible President Donald Trump had his phone calls intercepted, stored and searched by U.S. spy agencies during the Obama administration, experts say -- but not necessarily in the way the president claims. ... Many experts have stated in television interviews that just two methods exist for wiretapping -- a “Title III” criminal warrant or an intelligence court order -- and that since the post-Watergate reforms of the '70s the president has been unable to order taps. But presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway on Monday said Trump "has information and intelligence that the rest of us do not” and alternative...

    The investigation of Russian interference in the US election could turn into a big headache for the Democrats. The phrase “Be careful what you ask for” comes to mind. For months before the presidential election, I explained why the Democrats were making a big mistake by picking Hillary Clinton as their candidate. And I correctly predicted that she would lose. The Democrats didn’t listen, and now their party is in shambles. They aren’t going to listen to me now either about the unintended consequences of an investigation of the Russians, but I’m going to explain anyway. One of the reasons...

    That supposed FBI investigation of collusion with the Russians? Never mind . . . They’re in retreat now. You may have missed it amid President Trump’s startling Saturday tweet storm, the recriminations over president-on-candidate spying, and the Jeff Sessions recusal — a whirlwind weekend. But while you weren’t looking, an elaborate narrative died. For months, the media-Democrat complex has peddled a storyline that the Putin regime in Russia hacked the U.S. presidential election. There is, of course, no evidence that the election was hacked in the sense that the actual voting process was compromised.
