FINALLY, someone is asking the one question that demands an immediate answer! Will we get an honest one, detailing a legal reason behind all the surveillance shenanigans?
Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), said, “I expect for the FBI to tell me what is going on, and they better have a good answer,” via Washington Post.
Representative Nunes also said he was troubled by the leaking of the Flynn recordings. He pointed out a complex process exists for the monitoring and recording of communications of United States citizens and the “unmasking” of such conversations for intelligence agency use.
Committee members believe the most important question raised by retired General Michael Flynn’s resignation as national security adviser centers around why the eavesdropping on his calls by the NSA or FBI was even launched — and then leaked to the news media!
“The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?” tweeted President Donald Trump.
Nunes was absolutely correct when stating the “big problem” with the entire issue, which the media are trying to turn into a scandal, is that a private American citizen, which Flynn was at the time, should never have had his phone calls monitored and recorded by the federal government.
The California Republican called out the Democrats as hypocrites on the Flynn issue. All the liberals screamed over privacy issues when Hillary Clinton’s emails were demanded by the FBI, but they are totally silent now even though Clinton was under investigation and Flynn was not!
President Trump appears dismayed. During a press conference earlier today, he called Flynn a “wonderful man” who did not deserve to have his career destroyed by leaks. Representative Trey Gowdy also noted the illegality of exposing classified information.
Liberal television pundits continued to run sensational headlines about the whole Michael Flynn issue, even alleging collusion between the Trump administration and Russia. They do this with zero proof, which many eventually and begrudgingly admit in their fake news articles.
If you did not actually read the entire stories or only got your news from mainstream media outlets, you WOULD think the decorated veteran had actually promised to ease Obama’s imposed sanctions on Russia after Trump took the oath of office. That was not the case as far as the actual evidence shows.
When Flynn spoke with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, he relayed his appreciation for the country not overreacting to the poke in the eye from the lame duck president. When asked by Kislyak specifically about lifting the sanctions in the future, Flynn merely said Donald Trump would soon take office and would be reviewing the situation.
What do you think the FBI and NSA officials will say to explain their actions to Congress? Please share this story on Facebook and tell us because we want to hear YOUR voice!
