House probes government snooping on Trump campaign

Let’s get serious, did Nixon’s Watergate Plumbers ever testify?

 

Not at all, the case was tried in the newspapers.

It’s folly to believe that those who work in whatever capacity for the CIA, FBI, NSA, who do their dancing in the dark would tell the truth if called upon to testify.

They would likely take the Fifth Amendment or perjure themselves until those doing the question would give up, throwing their hands up in exasperation.

They are not called “Spooks,” without good reason.

Of course, there is music for this piece. (Source)

The House intelligence committee on Wednesday ordered U.S. snooping agencies to reveal whether they eavesdropped on any Trump or Clinton campaign personnel last year, and if so, whether they illegally “unmasked” any of those people by publicly revealing their communications.

The committee is conducting a high-profile investigation into Russian efforts to influence the U.S. election, and also whether there’s any veracity to President Trump’s tweeted claim that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower last year.

So far, the committee’s two top lawmakers said, there’s no proof to back up Mr. Trump’s claim.

 But Chairman Devin Nunes said there is evidence that crimes were committed to revealing communications between former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the U.S.

He said they want to find out whether anyone else was ensnared by intelligence collection.

“The committee is concerned that [U.S. persons’] identifiable information may have been mishandled in violation of approved minimization and dissemination procedures,” Mr. Nunes and Rep. Adam Schiff, the committee’s ranking Democrat, said in a letter demanding answers from the FBI, the CIA and the National Security Agency.

They said they wanted information on Friday.

They have a public hearing scheduled for Monday, with NSA Director Michael Rogers and FBI Director James Comey both having agreed to testify.

The probe originated out of Russia’s reported efforts to try to sway the U.S. election. The Obama administration accused Russia of being complicit in

The Obama administration accused Russia of being complicit in the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s computers and helping leak the information to embarrass then-candidate Hillary Clinton.

In recent months questions have swirled around whether Mr. Trump or his campaign operatives were working with Russia.

Mr. Nunes said he’s seen no evidence of that, while Mr. Schiff said he wouldn’t make that categorical denial, but declined to give more information at this point in the investigation.
