Members of the Donald Trump transition team, with the possibility Pres.-Elect Trump himself included, were under surveillance during the Obama Administration following November’s election. This is the revelation presented by House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA), Wednesday. Nunes said the surveillance appears to have been legal, incidental collection and that it does not appear to have been related to concerns over collusion with Russia.
What we can safely deduce from this statement of fact are at least two things.
First, Democrats and Progressives, including Hillary Clinton, her campaign team, the media and sitting elected in the House and Senate, have knowingly made false claims of Trump-Russia collusion pre-election.
Second, someone in the intelligence sphere with access to the information in question illegally leaked the contents of the conversation between Michael Flynn and the Russian ambassador.
The only crime here is the facilitation of the leaked information. There was no crime committed by anyone attached to Donald Trump or the Trump campaign.
It is time for Republicans and the Trump Administration to recapture the narrative and start making a "huge" deal out of finding this leaker and publicly excoriating him/her. Then, under the heading of national security, each and every Obama political appointee - no matter how high up of far down the food chain - should be culled from government with malice.
It is also time for the American people to very loudly start telling the media enough is enough. Time to start telling sponsors to mainstream media news shows that boycotts against their products will ensue if they don't apply pressure to the networks to stop misleading the public.
