Skip to comments.(Jan 19, 2017) Intercepted Russian Communications Part of Inquiry Into Trump Associates
Posted on 03/05/2017 4:31:30 PM PST by Ray76
American law enforcement and intelligence agencies are examining intercepted communications and financial transactions as part of a broad investigation into possible links between Russian officials and associates of President-elect Donald J. Trump, including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, current and former senior American officials said.
The continuing counterintelligence investigation means that Mr. Trump will take the oath of office on Friday with his associates under investigation and after the intelligence agencies concluded that the Russian government had worked to help elect him. As president, Mr. Trump will oversee those agencies and have the authority to redirect or stop at least some of these efforts.
The F.B.I. is leading the investigations, aided by the National Security Agency, the C.I.A. and the Treasury Departments financial crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in recent weeks but have found no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, the officials said. One official said intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House. (emphasis added)

Why post this now?
We’ll see, NYT, we’ll see.
But, given your record, my bet is on fake news.
Sucks being a lowly journalist, doesn’t it?
Heck, you guys are almost as dumb as politicians.
Yesterday’s NY Times: Trump, Offering No Evidence, Says Obama Tapped His Phones - https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/04/us/politics/trump-obama-tap-phones.html
The NY Slimes is doubling down. They’re fully committed to bringing down President Trump and there’s no backing away from it now for them and the rest of their globalist buddies.
The NYT, having no evidence, implied Pres. Trump colluded with Russians to win the election.
To show that the NY Times has known about the wire taps for some time and has reported on it.
Why? To show that they are LIARS.
Most excellent find.
Are you afraid of fake news?
Why post this now?
Ahh .... says “wiretapped.”
There are people denying there was a wire tap. Trump was right or the NYT was lying then.
fake again — it was fake 6 weeks ago when it was published. These people are going down hard. BOOOOM!!
they did report on it but this story does not state Trump Tower
credit where it’s due
I should have acknowledged SD in the post, I was too hasty!
Because the NYT says he (or his affiliates)were wiretapped then and now they are saying he wasn’t.
The tap probably was not *at* TT, but at an ISP.
Another thing that concerns me ........
I hope the FBI, CIA, NSA, and Treasury Dept. financial crimes unit aren’t totally consumed by Russia. This is so 1970s.
Hopefully they’re sort of watching over Saudi Arabia, Iran, Yemen, Iraq, Somalia, etc. This is where the real terror threats come from.
My guess is that they couldn’t do much investigation of muzzie nations because it would have offended the muzzie brotherhood administration.
One official said intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House.
NY Times thought they were being smart back then, and now it seems it is going to hurt their liberal, bias cause.
And then yesterday claimed that the wire taps didn’t happen after they talked about them last month. Do I understand this correctly? Seems like they are contradicting themselves.
