“Evidence is overwhelming,” said Mark Levin, that the Obama administration directed federal intelligence agencies to surveil then-presidential candidate and subsequent Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his team.
Joining Fox News Channel’s Peter Hegseth for an interview on Sunday’s Fox & Friends, Levin cited seven articles – almost entirely from left-wing and Democrat-aligned news media outlets – suggesting that the Obama administration sought authorization from a Federal Intelligence Surveillance Court to intercept the communications of Trump and his campaign-turned-transition team.
Trump recently took to Twitter to accuse Barack Obama and his former administration of weaponizing federal intelligence agencies for the purpose of partisan political brinksmanship. In so doing, he echoed allegations recently made by Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity.
Levin cited the following articles:
“EXCLUSIVE: FBI ‘Granted FISA Warrant’ Covering Trump Camp’s Ties To Russia,” from Heat Street.
“John McCain passes dossier alleging secret Trump-Russia contacts to FBI,” from The Guardian.
“FBI, 5 other agencies probe possible covert Kremlin aid to Trump,” from McClatchy.
“Intercepted Russia Communications Part of inquiry Into Trump Associates,” from The New York Times.
“N.S.A. gets More Latitude to Share Intercepted Communications,” from The New York Times.
“Flynn Is Said to Have Talked to Russians About Sanctions Before Trump Took Office,” from The New York Times.
“Obama Administration Rushed to Preserve Evidence of Russian Election Hacking,” from The New York Times.
“Inquiry on Trump aides includes intercepted Russian data,” from The Boston Globe.
For months, Democrats and their news media allies have pushed a narrative of 2016’s presidential election having been “hacked” by malevolent Russian state operators at the direction of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The narrative’s subtext implies, via innuendo, that Trump is either a willing or unwitting agent of nefarious Russian governmental influence.
