Bazzo Says

Bigger Than Watergate!

President Trump was right. From a story in last week’s New York Times, it turns out that the Obama Administration and James Comey’s FBI wiretapped the head of Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort, including conversations Manafort had with Trump. 

This is much worse than Watergate. That was a third-rate burglary. For both my liberal colleagues in the paper where this column appears, Watergate was a defining political moment in their lives. But they will ignore this. They are going to have to.

To do otherwise would mean they would have to say something negative about Obama and they are not going there. It will prove what I have thought all along: Watergate was not about the rule of law, but rather about removing a Republican president who carried 49 states. A president who for more than 40 years was loathed by the media and Democrats alike.

What we thought we knew was Richard Nixon was accused of spying on the Democratic National Committee. That he ordered the break-in of the Democratic headquarters. What we know now is that Nixon never ordered any such spying. In fact, he knew nothing about it. His problem was with the cover-up. What we thought we knew was that Nixon was accused of using the IRS against his political opponents. What we know now is that never happened. He only talked about it. What do know now is the only person involved in the scandal that was investigated by the IRS was Nixon himself. We know for a fact that the Obama Administration did both of these things. It used the IRS against political opponents and now we know it wiretapped the campaign manager of a political opponent. 

What we know from last week’s story is that the FBI showed up at 6 a.m. with a no-knock warrant issued by a secret FISA court based on a discredited (yes, the government knew back then) dossier that the then-citizen Trump paid Russian prostitutes to pee on the bed Obama slept on when he was there.  (This was later proved false; he never went to Russia.)

Then the FBI picked the lock of Manafort’s front door in Virginia and walked in and woke him up along with his family and started demanding things and taking items, including files marked “Lawyer/Client Confidential.”

What we all know from every cop/lawyer show ever produced, except for a very narrow circumstance, lawyer/client confidentiality is as sacrosanct as priest/ penitent. Yet, they took those files. Maybe this happens to drug lords, but we are not talking about drug cartels or organized crime families here.

What we found out is that the Justice Department and the FBI were wiretapping Trump Tower where Manafort has lived since 2006. Yet, it was Manafort’s Virginia home where investigators showed up and picked the lock. Remember back in March when Trump tweeted his wires were being tapped at Trump Tower? The media smirked. The media snickered. The media said, “Trump does not know what he’s doing. He’s shooting from the hip; he is lying.”

It turns out that Trump was correct. We are talking about the wiretapping of Paul Manafort, meaning that Trump would have been talking to Manafort. Those conversations were recorded. Also, remember that for all the B.S. here, collusion, in this case, is not a crime. 

We know from the Wiki-Leaks documents the Obama Administration used government surveillance on more Americans than any previous administration. What we know now is that the Obama FBI wiretapped the head of a political campaign. 

In a way, the media was right when they claimed that what Trump was doing was bigger than Watergate, but not in the way they thought. It turns out this is bigger than Watergate because what the Obama Justice Department was doing is bigger than Watergate. Nixon never did any of this. He may have dreamed about it, but he never did it. Nixon never actually used the IRS to penalize enemies, but Obama did. Ever hear of Lois Lerner? Nixon never used the Justice Department to spy on his enemies, but now we know the Obama Justice Department did. This may be the first time since the FBI was created that a sitting president went so far as to use the FBI to defeat a political opponent. So, I say to my liberal colleagues, what say you? 

This is what I say. What say you?
