Malcolm Nance, an intelligence and counterrorism expert, dropped a bombshell on MSNBC’s AM Joy that he interpreted Donald Trump’s claims that he was wiretapped by the President Barack Obama, as a target “getting buggy because he knows that he’s caught.”
Nance said, “If I can just touch for a moment, Joy, on the question of wiretapping. I’ve been involved in a lot of very advanced collection of operations in my world. I have no idea what Donald Trump is talking about with wiretapping. We do not even do that the way he probably thinks from The Sopranos where we’re actually running a wire and putting bugs into his office.”
He continued, “You know this is very dangerous because the people who would be tasked in Justice. If there are any questions coming from the White House starting today, or anytime in the foreseeable future on how they actually do collections, it means they’re preparing for a cover-up, because they want to know how they’re actually getting this information. This is what happens when a target starts getting buggy because he knows that he’s caught.”
It seems that Mr. Trump is trying to distract or get in front of more damaging information that may be forthcoming. He certainly acts like someone who is getting desperate because the noose is tightening.
