Levin's Pleads For Congress To Investigate Obama's 'Silent Coup'

Members of the Obama administration are guilty of a number of actions designed to thwart President Trump, a right-wing radio talk-show host alleged Thursday night.

Breitbart News reported that the commentator, Mark Levin, argued that the tactics are similar to those of a “police state.” He said Congress should investigate the Obama team’s behavior, rather than the Russian government’s reported attempts to help Donald Trump win last year’s election. Levin, citing stories by The New York Times and The Washington Post, listed several instances when Obama and his associates allegedly tried to undermine the Trump administration.

In June 2016, Obama’s White House asked the FISA court to review communications between Trump and his aides. The court denied the request. In October, Obama called for a federal probe of a computer server at Trump Tower than he believed would prove the Republican candidate’s links to Russia. The investigation revealed nothing, according to Levin.

The talk-show also blamed Obama for Buzzfeed’s story about a dossier created by a former British spy that accused the Trump campaign of communicating with representatives of the Russian government. The spy said Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin, has incriminating personal and business information about Trump that he could use as blackmail. The president denies the charges.

Levin pointed out that later in January, the Times reported that the Obama administration “expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.” The newspaper wrote that the FBI, CIA, National Security Agency and Treasury Department monitored Trump campaign officials who had links to Russia.

Levin also said Obama was behind the Michael Flynn affair. Trump’s national security adviser was forced to resign after admitting he had spoken with the Russian ambassador to the United States in December before Trump took office. Recent reports about other Trump administration officials having been in contact with the Russians were due to Obama’s meddling, as well, according to the commentator.
