1972 – Guys were caught breaking into the DNC HQ and bugging it to hear what they said. One was tied to Nixon campaign. Nixon tried to cover it up. Got caught and was forced to resign. Many in the White House went to jail. Known as Watergate scandal.
2016 – Fusion GPS hires a foreign spy who works with Russians to create a fake dossier about Donald Trump. Dossier then allegedly used to get FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrant to bug the Trump HQ in Trump Tower. (Conversations by Americans in such bugging cannot be “unmasked” by law because the warrant is for “foreign intelligence” only.) Then Obama signs an executive order allowing the unmasking of these conversations and distribution of such to a greater group of people. The dossier and “masked” conversations are leaked to the press. In 2017 it is found that the dossier was paid for by the Clinton campaign and DNC.
In 2017 Trump said his HQ had been bugged by the Obama administration and everyone said he was crazy.
Questions – why is this not the same kind of bugging as Watergate? Why is no one going to jail? Why is this cooperation between Clinton campaign and Russians not collusion? Why did Obama’s UN Ambassador request the most unmasking? Was she colluding with a foreign government and giving them conversations by the incoming Trump team?
Oh, I forgot, these are Democrats. Nothing to see here, move along.
