Former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is still the darling of the Tea Party movement, and when she speaks she commands attention.
In an interview with USA Radio’s Rusty Humphries on Monday, Bachmann said what was on many minds after hearing the news that Obama’s right-hand aide, Susan Rice, had been a major player in the unmasking of the Trump team’s private communications.
In the interview, an audio which can be found below, Bachmann says:
This is a big deal because Susan Rice is a part of Barack Obama’s ‘Chicago mafia’.… The most unprecedented, blockbuster move is that President Obama’s administration was in fact surveilling Donald Trump and people on his campaign for a year before his election. A year!
This is a thousand times worse than Watergate! This is the only thing the press should be talking about for the next month….
This is against the law. What the Obama administration did is surveil private American citizens for political purposes to hurt the Trump campaign politically….
This is hugely important. This is a massive abuse of power by the Obama administration….
Bachmann also added that she believed that the ultimate purpose of the Democrats’ slanderous accusations of “collusion” with Russia was more about distracting from these revelations than it was about actually catching the Trump administration in wrongdoing. Further, Bachmann says that no one should be surprised if more than one high-ranking member of the Obama administration ends up in federal prison for illegal acts against Trump and his campaign.
This is how bold, and how lawless the Obama administration was….
I think most Americans haven’t even heard of this story yet, but this makes Watergate pale. Remember we had a president of the United States resign over Watergate.
It’s too late for Obama to step down. But should further probes reveal his personal hand in this operation, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that he will be subject to subpoenas requiring humiliating testimony before Congress — if not worse.
