Legal expert: Obama facing jail time over Trump spy

A series of political insiders and legal experts say former President Barack Obama knew his administration spied on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign — he could even go to jail over it.

An investigative specialist, a former federal prosecutor, and one leading experts on the US intelligence community agree Obama may have leveraged the most powerful position in the world to rig the 2016 election.

The New York Times admitted the Obama administration had planted an “informant” – the paper refused to admit he was a “spy” – in the Trump campaign in the summer and fall of 2016.

The spy effort, known as “Operation Crossfire Hurricane,” began July 31, 2016 – just 10 days after Trump accepted the Republican presidential nomination.

The revelation turned Washington’s political establishment upside down – and threatens to put some of its members in the slammer.

“You can bet [Obama] was briefed on this operation against the campaign, especially given its sensitive nature,” Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch told Fox Business this week. “President Obama should disclose what he knew.”

Trump has demanded an investigation into whether the feds infiltrated his campaign for political purposes – and if Obama was behind it.

“Obama knew all about this and the notion that he didn’t is ludicrous,” said former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova.

The smoking gun came during a meeting on January 5, 2017, he said.

Barack Obama, Joe Biden, NSA advisor Susan Rice, and acting Attorney General Sally Yates huddled together “to figure out a way to explain” the investigation and spy embed, diGenova said. “They knew since Hillary didn’t win, now it was going to come out and they needed a story.”

He called former administration officials’ denials nothing more than “gaslighting.”

Andrew McCarthy, a former terror prosecutor, agrees.

“The White House had to know about this from the start,” McCarthy, who writes for National Review, told Washington’s WMAL radio. “The Susan Rice…‘CYA’ memo she wrote going out the door makes that clear.”

That’s the whole point of this kind of investigation, he said.

“Counterintelligence is done for the president,” McCarthy explained. “The purpose of it is…to enable the president to…(protect) the country from foreign threats to national security.”

But what if Obama abused that constitutional authority in order to carry out his own top priority: Keeping Democrats in power?
