The Ohio Star is saying:

President Barack Obama’s Treasury Department regularly surveilled retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn’s financial records and transactions beginning in December 2015 and well into 2017, before, during and after when he served at the White House as President Donald Trump’s National Security Director, a former senior Treasury Department official, and veteran of the intelligence community, told the Star Newspapers.

“I started seeing things that were not correct, so I did my own little investigation, because I wanted to make sure what I was seeing was correct” she said. “You never want to draw attention to something if there is not anything there.”

The whistleblower said she only saw metadata, that is names and dates when the general’s financial records were accessed. “I never saw what they saw.”

By March 2016, the whistleblower said she and a colleague, who was detailed to Treasury from the intelligence community, became convinced that the surveillance of Flynn was not tied to legitimate criminal or national security concerns, but was straight-up political surveillance among other illegal activity occurring at Treasury.

Actually, this kind of political action on the part of Treasury in the Obama Administration should be news to absolutely nobody.

Perhaps you will recall that conservative organizations complained for all of Obama s eight years that Treasury was mucking with their exempt status, based on their political beliefs and affiliations. We’ve written about this many times here. So why should anyone be surprised the treasury was up to their necks in this stuff as well?

Matt Taibbi, who is absolutely no friend of Donald Trump or anything to the right of Fidel Castro for that matter, probably isn’t making any friends on the left when he makes note of all this:

Warrantless surveillance, multiple illegal leaks of classified information, a false statements charge constructed on the razor’s edge of Miranda, and the use of never-produced, secret counterintelligence evidence in a domestic criminal proceeding – this is the “rule of law” we’re being asked to cheer.

Russiagate cases were often two-level offenses: factually bogus or exaggerated, but also indicative of authoritarian practices. Democrats and Democrat-friendly pundits in the last four years have been consistently unable to register objections on either front.

Flynn’s case fit the pattern. We were told his plea was just the “tip of the iceberg” that would “take the trail of Russian collusion” to the “center of the plot,” i.e. Trump. It turned out he had no deeper story to tell. In fact, none of the people prosecutors tossed in jail to get at the Russian “plot” – some little more than bystanders – had anything to share.

Remember George Papadopoulos, whose alleged conversation about “dirt” on Hillary Clinton with an Australian diplomat created the pretext for the FBI’s entire Trump-Russia investigation? We just found out in newly-released testimony by McCabe that the FBI felt as early as the summer of 2016 that the evidence “didn’t particularly indicate” that Papadopoulos was “interacting with the Russians.”

If you’re in the media and keeping score, that’s about six months before our industry lost its mind and scrambled to make Watergate comparisons over Jim Comey’s March, 2017 “bombshell” revelation of the existence of an FBI Trump-Russia investigation. Nobody bothered to wonder if they actually had any evidence.

Of course, as we all know by now, they had absolutely nothing.

Say what you will about Tabby, I’ll likely agree. He utterly fails to understand the level of evil that he is successfully aligned himself with to whatever degree. Give him credit for one thing however, he at least has the moral perceptiveness to understand that what those on his side of the aisle are doing is in fact immoral.

Regardless of that, it seems clear that Treasury, the FBI and so many other parts of the federal government have been totally corrupted during the Obama Administration. I think we all know why.

And here it is, folks, I will begin at least partially trusting the government again when I see arrests, and serious jail time handed out to those responsible for this corruption and that includes Barack Hussein Obama Hillary Clinton etc etc. Not until.
