(National Sentinel)Â The Leader: There has been much speculation in Washington and among the official political “commentariat” about whether President Obama had any knowledge of his Deep State intelligence and law enforcement institutions placing spies inside the 2016 Trump campaign.
Of course, he did, says former White House spokesman for George W. Bush, Ari Fleischer.
There’sÂ no way ObamaÂ wouldn’t have known, Fleischer insisted on Thursday.
In fact, he said, ObamaÂ authorized it. He would haveÂ had to.
Fleischer dropped his bomb during an appearance onÂ Fox News‘ noon-time program, “Outnumbered.”
The frank discussion was noted by investigative reporter Paul Sperry, who tweeted it out.
“BREAKING: Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer said ‘I guarantee the answer is yes’ to whether Obama knew Halper & others were deployed to spy on Trump campaign. Fleischer explained that no FBI director would put informants inside a presidential campaign w/o the prez authorizing it,” Sperry wrote.

For his part, President Donald Trump said essentially the same thing earlier this week.
When a reporter asked if Trump believes Obama knew, POTUS responded: “Would he know?Â I would certainly hope not. But I think itâ€™s going to be pretty obvious after awhile.”
There have been other indications that Obama not only knew but was directing the operation.
Remember that text exchange between FBI counterintelligence No. 2 Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, his lover?
In a Sept. 2, 2016, text to Strzok about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, Page said it was important to do so becauseÂ â€œpotus wants to know everything weâ€™re doing.â€
And earlier, we reported that Obama would also have been kept in the loop by his attorney general, Loretta Lynch — who was a lot more loyal to him that Jeff Sessions has been to Trump.
Also, since the spying against Team Trump was set up as a counterintelligence operation, Obama would have been updated regularly via the President’s Daily Intelligence Brief.
The question about whether Obama did or did not know about all of this has been answered — on more than one occasion.
Fleischer merely confirmed it today.
