Surveillance of political adversaries.
WikiLeaks is an international non-profit organization that publishes secret information, news leaks, and classified media from anonymous sources. Its website, initiated in 2006 in Iceland by the organization Sunshine Press, claims a database of 10 million documents in 10 years since its launch. Julian Assange, an Australian Internet activist, is generally described as its founder, editor-in-chief, and director. Wikileaks may be considered the “watchdog” of social corruption, a “whistle-blower” that has revealed many of the most “secretive” endeavors within government.
Can Wikileaks be used to advance the cause of corruption? Would anyone be so misinformed … as to ‘leak’ false information to discredit (’smear’) a political opponent? It appears that the elections results for Nov. 8, 2016 have driven one group to attempt to poison the waters for the successful candidate, Donald J. Trump. Rumors attempting to connect the Trump campaign with RUSSIA, the country, have been in the headlines for more many months.
Trump stated that Barack Obama, former POTUS, has “wiretapped” Trump Towers to obtain “insider” information about the Trump strategies, and possible criminal misconduct for purposes of de-legitimizing the new Administration. One such effort argues that Trump collaborated with Russians to “Steal” the election from the Democrats, who, have been the architects of stolen election for a century.
To date, they have produced “NO INFORMATION” or “FACTS” to support a claim that Russians influenced the outcome of the election, or even engaged in action to that end.
Many “politicians”, seeking some “spotlight” exposure shout out that Russian involvement to determine the outcome of an American election is “A DECLARATION OF WAR”! This allegation is disingenuous At Best.
Where were these same “politicians” in 2015 when POTUS Barack Obama spent an estimated $350 MILLION to for a failed attempt to influence the outcome of the Israeli elections in an OVERT attempt to depose Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu?
Why is this Not a “Declaration of War”?
Recent investigation has produced evidence that Susan Rice, an Obama officer, and close friend of Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s top aide INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE, requested she be provided the (“unmasked”) Names of Americans who appeared in surveillance tapes so they could be “leaked” to the media, including Wikileaks.
The Obama Administration has a history of surveillance ( “wiretapping” ) of its adversaries. e.g., in 2010, then-POTUS Barack Obama approved a wiretap of the cellphone of Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany.
Trump joked that He and the chancellor have something in common.
One can state, without fear of contradiction, that the trail of criminal surveillance leads to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. To date, Barack Obama has yet to come before the American People to DENY alleged involvement of criminal surveillance in violation of the 6th Amendment rights of Americans.
