|Barack Obama and CIA Whistle-Blower Larry Johnson
One day after President Donald Trump accepted an invitation for a formal state visit to the U.K., he tweeted an old claim that U.K. intelligence services had helped the Obama administration spy on his presidential campaign.
The accusation first emerged in 2017 via Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano, who claimed British intelligence had assisted the Obama administration in wiretapping New York City’s Trump Tower during the election campaign.
ONE AMERICAN NEWS NETWORK – Former CIA and State Department analyst Larry Johnson told One America News reporter Neil W. McCabe that the United Kingdom’s intelligence services spied on the 2016 Trump campaign, and then passed on information to the Obama administration. The intelligence sharing was through the so-called ‘Five Eyes’ cooperative of the intelligence services of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Johnson said the U.K. intercepted emails and phone calls from George Papadapoulos, an American living in London, and gave them to the U.S., and that this is how this otherwise unknown campaign volunteer became a central figure in the Russian Collusion Hoax.

WOW! It is now just a question of time before the truth comes out, and when it does, it will be a beauty!

GCHQ, the UK government’s chief digital spying organisation, branded the allegation as being utterly ridiculous. “As we have previously stated, the allegations that GCHQ was asked to conduct ‘wire tapping’ against the then President Elect are nonsense. They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored,” the agency told Reuters.
Now the big question is “Despite all allegations from President Trump, why has Obama kept quiet on this particular matter.”
