Watchdog Claims State Dept. Spied on Conservative Journalists and Pro-Trumpers

Watchdog group Judicial Watch is claiming that the State Department spied on Trump allies and conservative journalists in what is seen as political targeting.

According to Town Hall:

Government watchdog group Judicial Watch last week filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the State Department. The group believes prominent conservative journalists, public figures and those with ties to President Donald Trump were being monitored by the State Department in Ukraine under the direction of ousted U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, who was appointed to her post by President Barack Obama.

“Judicial Watch has obtained information indicating Yovanovitch may have violated laws and government regulations by ordering subordinates to target certain U.S. persons using State Department resources,” the watchdog group said in a press release. “Yovanovitch reportedly ordered monitoring keyed to the following search terms: Biden, Giuliani, Soros and Yovanovitch.”

Specifically, Judicial Watch believes the following people were being monitored:

Jack Posobiec, One America News Network Host
Donald Trump Jr., son of President Donald Trump
Laura Ingraham, Fox News Host
Sean Hannity, Fox News Host
Michael McFaul, President Obama’s Ambassador to Russia
Dan Bongino, Fox News Contributor
Ryan Saavedra, Reporter at the Daily Wire
Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s Personal Attorney
Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Former Strategist for President Trump and host of Salem’s “America First” Radio Program
John Solomon, Executive Vice President at The Hill
Lou Dobbs, Fox Business Host
Pamela Geller, Political Commentator
Sara Carter, Investigative Reporter and Fox News Contributor

This could be a potential major violation of the journalists and public figures’ constitutional rights.

We have been positioning operatives within every vector. By the time you see the operation actually happening, it’s too late.

Nobody gets away with anything. Witnessthe fuse lit by Judicial Watch and stand out of reach of the shrapnel.

SEEMS LIKE KASICH IS SUFFERING FROM POSTTRUMATIC SYNDROM. CAN SOMEONE SIT DOWN WITH HIM TO GO OVER THE FACTS REGARDING THE LONG STANDING CORRUPTION AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL. AS A COUNTRY WE NEED TO SOLICIT INFORMATION AND DOCUMENTS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES. IN. THIS DAY AND AGE WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY FOR TRANSPARENCY TO STOP THE CORRUPTION FROM BEING PERPETUATED

I think the Obama corruption is colossal, so much so, that the numerous investigations will eventually be airtight with overwhelming evidence to indict, arrest, try, convict, and sentence these Obama officials. I am confident THIS TIME that justice will be served.
Corruption inside Washington has been well known for decades. THIS TIME, we have a president who cannot be blackmailed into submission. He also has the back of the military–he is the Commander in Chief! The Obama officials know they are doomed. They have tried numerous ways to take him down including assassination attempts of which we do not have details. They are truly doomed THIS TIME because HRC did not win when they were so confident with their rigged voting machines from Soros! HRC cannot cover up their crimes because she is not the president and she will NEVER be the president of the United States. Hang ’em, and hang ’em high for sedition and treason!

I will say to GARY…that you do ‘not’ understand how things work. These crooks have more protection than the President, and they live in walled off residences. There’s also The Rule of Law, and these same laws protect the people. However, these same laws will convict them, and THIS WILL be done. The Administration does go about everything Lawfully, with all the evidence they can gather. This is what they’re doing now.
The Conservative side of the aisle does NOT behave as the Liberals. WE the people do everything Legally, so that it sticks. The more proof that goes into the Courtroom, the better it will be.
Maybe we are to humane, but we would also expect that in return. The issues are deeply embedded in History and Time. And for over a Century, the arms of the Octopus’s Tentacles have grown, and wrap around the world. This is NOT just about the U.S…it encompasses the entire planet…and goes so far back in time the very idea of how much horror in this world they’ve created, it takes a long time to clean it up. Real American Patriots are cleaning up a mess that ‘never should have begun in the first place.’
You need to realize that our President doesn’t do things quickly and haphazardly, but when it’s finished, the World will finally be FREE of them all.

Lea,
I agree exactly with what you said and how well you put words to it. The communist left has no fear of their Creator or know what is in store for them in the end, which is soon for many of them. They will have eternity to scream:”Why didn’t someone tell me?” They have definitely all chosen the wrong one to follow so we will just try to handle this with all honest and faith until they are out of the way in their graves.
