The letter of Freedom Watch’s Larry Klayman to the House Intelligence Committee disclosed that over the years the US intelligence community gathered surveillance on prominent Americans, including Donald Trump. Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel told Sputnik what implications the recent disclosure may have on former Obama officials.

While the US mainstream media is busy blowing up the story about the Trump campaign allegedly coordinating efforts with Russian operatives to defeat Hillary Clinton, there is yet another plot continuing to thicken in Washington.

Devin Nunes and Trump Wiretapping Scandal

During a March 22 conference House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes confirmed that the intelligence community “incidentally collected information about US citizens involved in the Trump transition” and that details of US individuals with the new administration, “with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value, were widely disseminated in intelligence community reporting.”

“Finally, I want to be clear, none of this surveillance was related to Russia or the investigation of Russian activities or of the Trump team,” Nunes said.

Commenting on the matter, Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist highlighted that when asked if he thinks the Obama administration and the US intelligence community “spied” on Trump, Nunes underscored: “I’m not going to get into legal definitions here, but clearly I have a concern.”

“While incidental collection isn’t technically spying, the dissemination of such information without cause makes it look a lot like it is,” Hemingway remarked.

On the next day Fox News announced, citing Capitol Hill sources, that Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” related to the Obama administration’s surveillance on Trump’s transition team and, apparently, the president-elect himself.

According to the sources, the intelligence leaves no doubt that the previous administration used “the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump.”

Still, it appears there is a straw that may finally break the camel’s back.
