Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch secretly met with Bill Clinton on the 27th of June 2016 at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. One week after the secret meeting, the FBI Director James Comey held a press conference in which he laid out the many scandalous activities that Hillary Clinton undertook while she was Obama’s Secretary of State.
Comey concluded his conference by saying that his judgement was that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.
The meeting between Bill Clinton and the Attorney General Lynch occurred at about the same time that the Obama administration filed a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Mr. Trump and his associates. However, the request was denied.
Several months later, around October 2016, WikiLeaks began releasing emails of Clinton campaign Chair John Podesta. The whistle- blowing site rolled out batches every day until the election. As a result, many mini-scandals were created in the process. The emails were virtually ignored by the Mainstream media who were in the bag supporting Hillary Clinton.
Obama administration submitted a new, narrow request to the FISA court that focused on a computer server in Trump Tower that was suspected of links to Russian banks.
Andrew McCarthy at the National Review noted that no evidence was found but the wiretaps continued, allegedly for national security reasons.
Obama’s administration was monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.
Around the same period, leaks started coming in. The liberal website Slate posted a report on the 13th of October that was titled: Was a Trump Server Communicating With Russia? The subtitle to the post read: “This spring, a group of computer scientists set out to determine whether hackers were interfering with the Trump campaign. They found something they weren’t expecting.”
The article insinuated that an innocent anonymous hacker found a scientist referred to as Tea Leaves found what looked like malware emanating from Russia. The destination had Trump in its name, which of course attracted Tea Leaves attention. However, his discovery of the data was pure happenstance—a surprising needle in a large haystack of DNS lookups on his screen. “I have an outlier here that connects to Russia in a strange way,” he wrote in his notes. He couldn’t quite figure it out at first. But what he saw was a bank in Moscow that kept irregularly pinging a server registered to the Trump Organization on Fifth Avenue.
The article was simply trying to paint a false connection between President Trump and the Russians. A lot of questions arise from the FBI’s move to look into a server at Trump Tower and it appears to have been the beginning of the Obamagate leaks that we’re witnessing at the moment.
