The media is hiding something about President Trump’s Saturday morning tweets about surveillance at Trump Tower.
Namely, that the evidence they deny exists was heavily reported on at the time of the tapping.
While story after story breaks on Trump’s assertion that Trump Tower’s phones were tapped, with headlines repeating the phrase “no evidence” again and again, it’s easy to believe that lie.
The truth is that the evidence was there, and was reported on my the same massive media outlets which would later deny its existence.
Should we really be surprised at this point that writers for the New York Times were told to paint a picture of this story as if they don’t remember covering it? Just make sure to say “no evidence,” and the story’s there.
Heat Street reports:
Contrary to earlier reporting in the New York Times, which cited FBI sources as saying that the agency did not believe that the private server in Donald Trump’s Trump Tower which was connected to a Russian bank had any nefarious purpose, the FBI’s counter-intelligence arm, sources say, re-drew an earlier FISA court request around possible financial and banking offenses related to the server.
The first request, which, sources say, named Trump, was denied back in June, but the second was drawn more narrowly and was granted in October after evidence was presented of a server, possibly related to the Trump campaign, and its alleged links to two banks; SVB Bank and Russia’s Alfa Bank.
While the Times story speaks of metadata, sources suggest that a FISA warrant was granted to look at the full content of emails and other related documents that may concern US persons.
Security professionals Jim Hanson and Lt. Col Tony Shaffer appeared on Fox and Friends to assert that surveillance continued after connections to Russia were dismissed.

Unfortunately for the NYT, some people do have memories, and as the story develops, the media will have a harder and harder time fooling their viewers and readers.
