Message Subject CIA Analyst Trump Wiretap Was Probably Done Via British GCHQ, 1534
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
Explains why British papers were the first to report on the secret FISA warrants--- this reporting could have been an early misdirection intended to embarrass Trump.

Of course if the Brits did it at Obama's request, this means that Obama is shielded legally.

I was wondering how the British got the FISA scoop first...well they didn't...

Obama is not shielded if the content of the wire taps were given him during daily intel briefing. He is still spying on his political adversary during a campaign regardless. The CIA subcontracted the wire tapping. Shouldn't make a difference.

Good point-- but it would have to be proven --- and a conversation in the daily briefing might be difficult to prove if there is no paper trail or record of the conversation.

The British could have agreed to do surveillance on Trump Tower on the basis of an informal conversation with an Obama subordinate-- and if so--- there would be no record or paper trail.

Plausible deniability is what these guys do.
