Obama Was In On It! Andrew McCarthy: Counter Intelligence Investigations Are Done For The President — Obama Knew About Spying On Trump (Video)

(Gateway Pundit) – President Trump fired off a warning shot at Barack Obama and the deep state in June.

The president tweeted out Tucker Carlson’s comments and then added a warning…

President Trump: “Someone should call Obama up. The Obama Administration spied on a rival presidential campaign using Federal Agencies. I mean, that seems like a headline to me?” @TuckerCarlson It will all start coming out, and the Witch Hunt will end. Presidential Harassment!

In an unprecedented move Barack Obama spied on the opposition candidate during the 2016 election.

And it was all based on lies that they all knew were lies.

On Tuesday night Attorney and author Andrew McCarthy joined Sean Hannity to discuss the ongoing Spygate scandal.

During the discussion Andrew McCarthy, who served as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, told Sean Hannity that Obama knew about the spying on Trump.

Andrew McCarthy: What I’m saying is not that the president sits there and directs that there be counter-intelligence investigations. What I’m saying is that unlike criminal investigations, counter intelligence investigations are done for the president. The only reason to do them is for the president with the information he needs to protect the United States from foreign threats. They’re not like criminal investigations in that regard. So in principle the information for the president. And here we know at various junctures we have actual factual information that this investigation was well known to president Obama.

Sean Hannity: So, if he knew, and this is all happening, he had to know about it from the get-go. Doesn’t it also imply that he would have been updated on this? If he’s the one that needs it for national security decision making?

Andrew McCarthy: Sean if things were working properly the president should have been alerted about it and informed. It was a very important investigation. If they actually believed what they were telling the court that it was a possibility that Donald Trump was actually a plant of the Kremlin, it would have been derelict on their part not to keep the president informed.
