Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Former Intel Officer Says Obama Could Be First Former President with a Felony Indictment

President Donald Trump challenged the media and political world with a series of tweets alleging former President Barack Obama’s administration had wiretapped and spied on him and his associates in Trump Tower during the 2016 election season, maybe even illegally.

While there’s been a significant amount of pushback against the extreme accusation by both the media and Obama’s people, there does seem to be some circumstantial evidence that Trump’s allegations were correct – at least more than any proving Trump was colluding with the Russian government.

If indeed it does turn out to be the case that the Obama administration illegally surveilled Trump’s team ahead of Election Day as some have speculated, the end result could be the unprecedented indictment of a former president on felony charges.

So a highly respected former senior intelligence officer, retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, told  USA Radio Network’s Rusty Humphries on “Trending Today USA” Monday morning.

Humphries asked if, should everything turn out to be true, Obama would be arrested and held accountable for violating the laws.

“This could be the first time a former president could be indicted for a felony,” Shaffer answered. “Because I think it is very possible that he acted outside of the scope of his duties, responsibilities and authorities to turn the resources of a nation-state on a candidate.”

“This is, as I’ve said before, soviet-dictator level wrongdoing,” he added.

Shaffer also noted that, given Obama’s use of government resource to conduct other spying operations, it was easy to imagine him doing the same against Trump, particularly while working under the assumption that Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton would win the general election and keep the subterfuge against Trump under wraps.

This is mostly speculation, but given Shaffer’s military career, his rise to the top of the American intelligence community, and his role as a senior fellow at the London Center for Policy Research, his speculation holds more weight than media pundits.
