(Gateway Pundit) – For decades there was a tradition in American politics that presidents would not attack their predecessor. But Obama is not one for tradition, especially American tradition, which he despises. (Which is a complete joke.)
On Friday morning Barack Obama attacked President Trump and tried to take credit for Trump’s booming economy.
But there may be more to Obama’s Friday attacks, than just pure jealousy, on President Trump.
Congressional investigators are getting close to unraveling Spygate and the several attempts by the FBI and DOJ to spy on President Trump during and after the election.
And it now looks like Barack Obama was the one calling the shots.
So it makes sense that he would attack President Trump in order to build a narrative that President Trump has it out for him before the Spygate scandal blows wide open!
TGP reported last weekend that it appears that the reason there was no FISA Court hearing on the Carter Page FISA warrant was because Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch forced through the application per an obscure loophole in the law.
We next reported this Labor Day morning that if this is correct, then likely AG Sessions or Rosenstein pushed through any extensions after President Trump took office.
Now we’ve unlocked a bombshell and it’s worse!
President Obama would have had to approve the Carter Page warrant per law in order for the spying to proceed without a court hearing. The rule is described on page 7 of 1978 FISA Act!
The Act reads as follows –
“AUTHORIZATION FOR ELECTRONIC SURVEILLANCE FOR FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE PURPOSES
SEC. 102. ø50 U.S.C. 1802¿ (a)(1) Notwithstanding any other law, the President, through the Attorney General, may authorize electronic surveillance without a court order under this title to acquire foreign intelligence information for periods of up to one year if the Attorney General certifies in writing under oath “
It looks more and more that President Trump was right when he tweeted shortly after his inauguration that he was spied on by Obama!
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

The corruption of the Obama Administration was without parallel as it used the full force of the US intelligence community to spy on candidate Trump! LOCK THEM UP!
