CONSERVATIVE TRIBUNE Reports: When President Donald Trump met the liberal media’s months of unsubstantiated “Russia” allegations against him with an unsubstantiated allegation of his own against former President Barack Obama, Democrats and their “journalist” allies immediately lost their minds and took turns castigating and mocking Trump for daring to suggest that Obama had spied on his 2016 campaign.
The furiously over-the-top reaction to Trump’s allegation spurred a defense of the current president from a seemingly unlikely source — former Ohio Democrat Rep. Dennis Kucinich — who in an op-ed for Fox News revealed that he had been spied on by the Obama administration.
Kucinich recalled how a conversation he had held with a high-ranking Libyan official in 2011 about congressional efforts to deescalate the Obama administration’s military ventures in the North African nation had been recorded and eventually revealed to him by a reporter for The Washington Times in 2015.
Here’s Kucinich on Saturday’s edition of “Fox & Friends”:
Kucinich also recently shared his story of being wiretapped by the Obama administration with Rusty Humphries of “Trending Today USA,” a part of the USA Radio Network that is a sister organization to Conservative Tribune.
“When I heard what happened to President Trump, or what he alleged happened, to me it seemed plausible because it happened to me,” said Kucinich. “And it was at a time when I was challenging a march toward war in Libya.”
“My conversation was intercepted, and that is illegal, it’s a violation of separation of powers,” he continued. “Members of Congress have the right under the Constitution to gather information, and the administration had no right to go after my phone conversation.”
Kucinich added that while he doubted Obama himself had personally ordered spies to record his phone call with the Libyan official, he had no doubts whatsoever that it had been the U.S. intelligence community that had recorded the call and eventually leaked it to the media. READ MORE
