Summary: @realDonaldTrump and #DeepStateGate

Saturday morning, 3/4/2017, started out early with some hefty, bombshell news as President Trump himself bypassed the media and took the following directly to the People:

The above tweet, and at least four subsequent entries in the President’s personal Twitter timeline, were alleged to have been based off of radio talk show host Mark Levin’s putting two plus two together regarding at least a year and a half of disparate media reports that, when taken all together, point towards something going on within the intelligence community and whether or not legitimate surveillance was performed.

In fact, it was actually the New York Times who originally “broke” this story back on January 20, 2017 (a scanned image of the above-the-fold, front page is below):

The contents of that specific article are available at this link (replete with the term, “wiretapped” both within the report and also as a footnote whereby the story’s headline was subsequently changed).

Mark Levin went on “Fox and Friends” to fully explain his view on how the press has already begun laying the groundwork for #DeepStateGate:

In response to the above, Brian Stelter at CNN essentially claimed the above as conspiratorial, to which Mr. Levin shot back a scathing response.

Former Secret Service agent claimed that we would be seeing a lot more about this story this week:

As of Sunday, such a promised opening apparently began, with a purported listing of those allegedly wiretapped.

All of the above may have been long foreseen. As a reminder from a previous posting on TRSoL, remember what Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) stated on January 12, 2017:

Is it possible that the President is using the media against itself in order to show lawmakers (who have ultimate say over what happens outside of the Executive branch) that this should certainly be something to — at the very least — investigate?
