The following is a transcript from the Pro America Report.
Welcome, welcome, welcome everybody. I hope you had a great weekend. Good to be back with you in the saddle here, and a big week coming. In a few moments, we’ll talk with… we’ll get an update on the truckers situation up in Ottawa. Marina Hoffman, who’s been with us before, her father is a trucker, her family has been very supportive of the truckers and has actually been helping when they pass through Toronto. They were involved and they’re going up there to Ottawa in the next few days. So we’ll talk with her in a few moments and a lot more.
Before we get to that, this should have been, perhaps, I guess I should say that… Perhaps this was the most important weekend in terms of the politics of this moment in history in, I don’t know, 50 years? Because what has come out over the weekend was irrefutable evidence, not questioned evidence, not conjecture, but irrefutable evidence that the Hillary Clinton campaign and agents of her campaign – lawyers and paid technical advisors, I don’t know if that’s the right word, but paid techies that did work for her – accessed Donald Trump’s campaign. They were, quote, spying on him.
One of the things he got mocked for was saying that he was wiretapped, which is a kind of old fashioned way of saying that you’re being surveilled. It’s kind of like, almost like, I don’t know if you watched the Super Bowl over the weekend, but one of the ads for I think Chevy was a rehash of the Sopranos opening. Remember the Sopranos opening? It was clever. The Sopranos opening was all the roads of New Jersey, as I think Tony Soprano was driving to work or driving home. And so you saw the bridges and the signs and the Jersey and all this. And they did that, and they had the daughter, the Soprano daughter, what is her name? Summer, I think, driving a Chevy.
But the reality of that – so that’s the phrase that Trump used was wiretapped, which is kind of an old fashioned term. But the reality is we now know that Trump was right. They were tapped into his electronics. They were into his server. And even more stunning, it should be the number one story across the world, as far as I can tell, is that not only were they into his they were surveilling his campaign, when he became President they kept doing it.
Now, do you understand what we’re saying? We had political opponents and others, I guess perhaps just regular people? I don’t know if we can say yet for sure that it was the intelligence community. I’m not sure we can. But they were surveilling, they were inside the President of the United States, his White House and the servers there.
Now, I don’t know how that could be bigger. People often throw around, they used to do it on CNN all the time, bigger than Watergate? And you’d have Carl Bernstein, Woodward and Bernstein. Come on and say, oh, you know, Trump’s call to the Ukraine is bigger than Watergate. I’m not sure any of that was ever true at all. I don’t think any of it was even close.
But isn’t it pretty close to true that if Watergate was a burglary and then a cover up, if that’s what it was, what we have is wiretap. Excuse me, if Watergate was a burglary and a cover up of a campaign opponent, in other words, during the campaign, there was a burglary and a cover up of a political campaign. In this case, we have the burglary surveillance of a campaign, but that’s only the beginning. Then we have active spying, active surveillance on the President of the United States. Isn’t that the definition of, I don’t know, what, an insurrection? Treason? If you’re actually trying to damage the President of the United States and his administration, perhaps take it out of office, what is that?
After you’re doing something in a campaign, you keep doing it as the President, it’s pretty far along the path from – I don’t know what. Campaign dirty tricks? You can’t say that anymore because it’s not campaign dirty tricks. The campaign was over. And here’s where it gets unbelievable. Not unbelievable. What gets unbelievable is when I tell you that the people that were involved and the main guy one of the main guys is a guy named Jake Sullivan who had told people once Hillary won, he would be national security adviser and she lost a course and he went out into exile.
And instead of doing, I don’t know, writing think tank papers, he appears to have been engaged in the effort to surveil the Trump administration. And he certainly was a public opponent of the Trump administration in a way that was striking. He was a real leader in that. And now we know he was on the inside, too. Now there are other people, Mark Elias, the lawyer. There’s other lawyers that look like they, some of them may have lied to Durham and the FBI, so they’re in a hot seat. But we just got the tip of the iceberg of what looked like an insurrection.
And here’s where it gets incredible, like out of a movie, a movie about the end of a republic. Jake Sullivan is now in the White House. He’s one of Biden’s senior aides, National Security Adviser. He’s one of the top guys in the White House, the guy who was at the heart of the effort to spy on the Trump campaign and his White House is now in the White House. And we’re supposed to look up and say, “oh, good, Jake Sullivan, tell us how to think about Ukraine” or “tell us how to think about Antifa.”
At a certain point, what you have to say is, and I do blame the Obama administration, the Obama era, they weaponized the government against We the People. And you can tell me that you think that the Trump administration did, too, but I don’t see any evidence of it. I think it was four more years of the Obama people – Comey, Clapper, Brennan, the woman that’s running the CIA now – all these folks continuing the vision they have.
And there was a piece out over the weekend and it was forwarded to me, which I think it’s Conservative Treehouse had it. And the Conservative Treehouse, the essay was about the intelligence branch. And it’s sort of tongue in cheek. Not really, but it’s the intelligence… There’s different branches of the government and the one that’s the intelligence branch… Yeah Conservative Treehouse is where it is. The intelligence branch is outside of all the rest of them.
And that what they want to do – they do. Yeah. It’s a piece over at TheConservative Treehouse.com. I think the author is Sundance, one of these anonymous authors. But it’s a stunning thing to read this and read that. It’s a long, lengthy piece. But it talks about the intelligence state and the state that has dominance over what’s going on. But can you imagine, can you imagine what would be happening today if there was evidence that the Donald Trump administration spied on the Biden administration? Can you imagine what that would have looked like?
It was unbelievable, incredible to even read it and think, seriously, that the Hillary campaign, which was hand in glove with the Obama administration. Right? They were hand in glove. We know that. And they were able to surveil Donald Trump. He was right. They did wiretap him. He was right. After all this time, he’s proven right again.
And here’s the real trick. He said (Trump) that something funny went on with the election. And they said (the same people, Jake Sullivan and others said) “you can’t say that. That’s outrageous. We would never do anything like that.” Now what we’ve proven is they did the most brazen thing they could. And it’s the same people. They did the most brazen, it looks like illegal things they could to surveil Trump. And now we’re supposed to say, “oh, they would never do that for the election.”
They literally would engage in an insurrection, in my opinion, an insurrection to surveil the President and try to take him down, damage his people, damage his administration, damage the presidency, all that. And now we’re supposed to think the same people. Oh, no, they just were above board. They went and did the election. There’s total election integrity. Really? It’s not believable.
And the cherry on top is, will anyone be held accountable? Does anyone get held accountable? Because you know what they said for years, Trump colluded with the Russians. Turns out that Hillary colluded with foreigners to try to take down Trump for years. They said Trump will be a dictator. He’ll do XYZ. They were surveilling the guy. Unbelievable. Bad day. And you go over to CNN, you won’t find the story. Go over to MSNBC, won’t find the story. They won’t even cover the story. Breathtaking.
All right. We’ve got to take a break. We’ll come back, we will talk with Marina Hoffman. We’ll also talk a little bit about global warming later. And I will give you an update on the great scandal that will transform the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate. Be right back, Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. Back in a moment.
