Upon hearing that Trump was probably spied on by the Obama administration, CNN found another anonymous source this evening who is telling them that the Trump campaign colluded with Putin to hurt Hillary.
It sounds like another illegal leak.
CNN was very upset that the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes said today that he received information that Trump and the Trump campaign were spied on “incidentally”. Their personal information was collected, unmasked, and widely disseminated during the transition. We reported this earlier.
We also reported that CNN and much of the media reported the story by saying that Trump lied when he said he was wiretapped by Obama.
Trump never meant Obama directly and he put “wiretap” in quotes.
Now there is this.
CNN reported at 8 pm EST Wednesday that: the FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, US officials told CNN.
“Possibly” being the operative word.
They said this is what FBI Director James Comey was referring to when he told Congress on Monday that the FBI is investigating Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, one unnamed source told CNN.
They have an unnamed source and officials. “Unnamed” being the other operative word.
CNN said further: The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings, according to those U.S. officials. The information is raising the suspicions of FBI counterintelligence investigators that the coordination may have taken place, though officials cautioned that the information was not conclusive and that the investigation is ongoing.
The FBI refused to comment. CNN knows Comey won’t comment. He says it repeatedly and said it again Monday.
Desperate Democrats demanded Wednesday an independent probe into Trump campaign links to Russia and are protesting Devin Nunes, the intel chair’s revealing of possible Trump communications monitoring and dissemination during the Obama reign.
Rep. Hymes thinks Nunes is the one who should be in trouble. Adam Schiff wants to talk to committee members about having Devin Nunes step down as Chair. Brian Williams, a hoax reporter on NBC, sneered that Devin Nunes just wanted to be on television. Nunes can be on TV any time and was just on yesterday Brian.
Adam Schiff is out telling reporters he knows for sure that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.
The story that came out today via Devin Nunes does suggest that a serious felony was committed under Obama’s administration. There is no way Obama didn’t know if this story is true.
How is it possible that the FBI didn’t know about this? Is FBI Director Comey lying by omission? What did Obama know and when did he know it?
Bill O’Reilly asked Rep. Peter King this evening if the Obama administration spied on Trump. Rep. King answered.

Former UN ambassador Ric Grennell expressed it well in a tweet.
CNN's breaking news is from an anonymous official and their lede has "indicates" "suspected" and "possibly" all in the first sentence.

Jake Tapper was out earlier grilling Nunes and demonizing Trump as opposed to reporting.
.@jaketapper: There is still no evidence that Trump himself was wiretapped?
Rep. Nunes: That is correct https://t.co/WvdziICfD5

The reason the Democrats are going wild over this is because Nunes is going to try to find out if Obama was involved.
