POTUS has turned the political sphere upside down after accusing Obama of wiretapping his tower during the campaign… and perhaps illegally too. Now, a former intelligence officer is claiming that if the allegation turn out to be true, that means serious trouble for Obama.
While there of course there has been substantial pushback against the extreme accusation by both the media and Obama’s people, there does seem to be some circumstantial evidence that Trump’s allegations were correct — at least more than any proving Trump was somehow colluding with the Russian government.
If indeed it does turn out to be the case that the Obama administration illegally surveilled Trump’s team ahead of Election Day as some have speculated, the end result could be the unprecedented indictment of a former president on felony charges.
Calling the alleged incident an “order of magnitude” bigger than the Watergate scandal, Shaffer stated that the incident would have included “using nation-state resources for purposes of political gain.”
Humphries asked if, should everything turn out to be true, Obama would be arrested and held accountable for violating the laws.
“This could be the first time a former president could be indicted for a felony,” Shaffer answered. “Because I think it is very possible that he acted outside of the scope of his duties, responsibilities and authorities to turn the resources of a nation-state on a candidate.”
