“Trump’s falsehoods are eroding public trust, at home and abroad.”
This is coming from the Wall Street Journal, yes an opinion piece, but an opinion most definitely held by the entire organization.
How hilarious is this? Why aren’t you reporting on the biased reporting that is going on, or the obvious full out war on Trump, skewing news into VERY misleading headlines and pushing agenda’s that have no credibility. I haven’t followed the Wall Street Journal routinely so I can’t comment specifically on it’s overall reporting, but what I do remember is the all-out-attack on PewDiePie that the WALL STREET JOURNAL started.
“Following an investigation into the antisemitic content by the Wall Street Journal, Disney has ended this joint venture.”
3 “investigative-reporters” went out of their way to contact the sponsor of a popular youtuber in order to silence him. You spun the context, or just left out the correct context completely, and then you spread a pretense of anti-semitic hatred. They lied straight to their readers. And to me that drains them of all credibility, especially after they double-down on their bullshit.
Now in regards to Trump and the wiretapping.
This is the original tweet that started this :
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

Yes it is true that Trump has provided no evidence, and I understand that completely. But also, just like others, I was skeptical but open to the idea.
Now look what happened today:
Conversations by Trump and people in his transition team might have been “incidentally collected” through use of FISA( The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978), meaning that people in the Trump Tower were conversing with foreign “targets of surveillance” and this inadvertently caused the collection of all the conversations. Now this isn’t literal confirmation of “OBAMA wiretapping Trump specifically” but it is confirmation that under Obama’s presidency, Trump’s phones were tapped because of another investigation. Also, Nunes states that this investigation had nothing to do with Russia.
Here is an interesting read on the subject of FISA and Wire tapping in response to Trump’s initial tweet:
“(A “US person” is a citizen or lawful permanent resident alien. Such people normally may not be subjected to searches or electronic eavesdropping absent probable cause of a crime; an exception is FISA, which — to repeat — allows such investigative tactics if there is probable cause that they are agents of a foreign power.)”
“What we have, however, suggests that someone at the FBI initially had concerns that banking laws were being violated, but when the Bureau looked into it, investigators found no crimes were being committed. Rather than drop the matter for lack of evidence of criminal offenses, the Justice Department and FBI pursued it as a national-security investigation.”
Later on, Nunes spoke again, this time saying that they cannot rule out the possibility of the Obama administrations involvement in the surveillance on Trump.

Look how things fucking turn out. Hilarious. However this confirms that Trump and his team were surveilled between the election and inauguration and not beforehand as Trump has claimed. Very interesting none the less.
