“Much Worse Than Watergate”, Former CIA Officer Admits Trump ‘Wiretapping’ Likely True
The “political appointees” in the intelligence community knew exactly what they were surveilling for, former CIA officer Col. Tony Shaffer told Fox News, adding that the case is “much worse than Watergate by an order of magnitude.”
While Trump was not physically wiretapped, with a wire into his phone, Shaffer said the “basic fundamental idea and claim is true.”
“Clearly they were after gossip because it was political,” Shaffer said, maintaining that the alleged wiretap had nothing to do with Russia.
Due to the simplicity required to “mask” an American’s name during an incidental wiretap, Shaffer said that the leak of Gen. Michael Flynn’s name was “accidental on purpose.”
