NYT: Obama Scattered His Anti-Trump Leak Material Throughout the Government to Guarantee His Loyalists' Campaign Against Trump Could Continue

Like Voldemort had his horcruxes to guarantee his resurrection, Obama put his illegally obtained eavesdrop material into the hands of trusted loyalists.

#TheResistance must live on -- and as ever on the left, it must be funded by taxpayers.

In the Obama administration's last days, some White House officials scrambled to spread information about Russian efforts to undermine the presidential election -- and about possible contacts between associates of President-elect Donald J. Trump and Russians -- across the government. Former American officials say they had two aims: to ensure that such meddling isn't duplicated in future American or European elections, and to leave a clear trail of intelligence for government investigators.

American allies, including the British and the Dutch, had provided information describing meetings in European cities between Russian officials -- and others close to Russia's president, Vladimir V. Putin -- and associates of President-elect Trump, according to three former American officials who requested anonymity in discussing classified intelligence.

Gee, I wonder who those might be.

Note that the media continues to claim that Trump is "just making stuff up" when he says Obama loyalists are responsible for these leaks of information -- and will continue doing so, even after it's revealed that Obama put the information into the hands of loyalists hidden deep in the Deep State.

By the way, remember this story from a few weeks back? (Don't comment on old posts.)

Obama, on his way out the door, radically changed NSA rules to allow them to share unredacted surveillance information while preserving the names of people (US citizens) it's illegal for the US to spy on without a warrant. This is a change of practice-- the NSA used to have to scrub out the names of US personnel it's not permitted to eavesdrop on.

Why?

Well, here's a hypothetical -- purely hypothetical, I'm sure -- conversation I postulated might have occurred:

FLUNKY: The FBI has found nothing criminal on Flynn. But the NSA has wiretaps of Flynn and other Trump aides, but they can't get the information out under current rules. OBAMA: Can we just have the NSA leak this stuff?

FLUNKY: The NSA doesn't want to do that because there are very small circulation lists for such highly classified intercepts, and it would be pretty easy to find the leakers and prosecute them. Plus, they actually don't even want to admit they're transcribing people's phone calls. But if we could get the information out to our loyalists in the DOJ, FBI, and CIA, they could paw through the intercepts, and leak them to the press. Now there'd be hundreds of people who could leak this stuff -- and they'd be hard to find. The list of possible leakers now expands from 5-10 to 50-500. As you know from your community organizing days, saboteurs and subversives need masses to swim amongst, if they're to remain undetected.

OBAMA: I've got tee time in 20 minutes. Tell me what I need to sign.

FLUNKY: I already signed it for you, Sir. I didn't want you to lose any finger strength on your drives.

And now this new NYT story that Obama deliberately "scattered" his probably-illegal hacking of the election (using law enforcement and intelligence to spy on political rivals) as thoroughly across the US government as possible.

Maximizing the number of potential leakers, and thus making it easier for them to hide in the crowd.

By the Way: God help Obama if it is ever learned that he, as a private citizen with no security clearance, is advising/strategizing about illegal leaks of classified information.

Since the FBI and NSA are now surveilling Trump's communications, maybe it's time to start surveilling Hillary and Bill Clinton, Jon Podesta and his brother (who lobby for the largest state-owned bank in Russia), ValJar and Barack Hussein Obama as well.

We want transparency, right?

Democracy dies in darkness, doesn't it? Some laughingstock told me that.
