CNN Airs 'Spy Cam' Footage Of Trump Oval Office Meeting As If It's Perfectly Acceptable

Tyler Durden's picture

Over the weekend, CNN released 'spy cam' footage of a "fiery" meeting in the oval office and used it to report that an angry President Trump lashed out at his senior staff in an "expletive-laced" tirade over their "fumbling" of the Sessions recusal which he thought was premature and overshadowed his speech to Congress.   

Of course, while the mainstream media was all too eager to spread the word of more dysfunction in the Trump White House, no one seemed to care to ask the obvious question of why it is suddenly ok for CNN to be filming private, and potentially classified, meetings in the Oval Office.  Moreover, if it is somehow permissible to film potentially classified meetings, which we can't imagine it is, we do wonder where all of CNN's footage is of Obama's oval office meetings?  We're sure they "do not recall."

 

Meanwhile, it's painfully obvious that CNN completely fabricated the narrative around the meeting as their own 'news' anchor even admits that their "anonymous" sources were not aware of what the meeting was even about.  Moreover, since the meeting was 'closed door', it's difficult to understand how CNN's source could have possibly known Trump's demeanor and/or whether he used "a lot of expletives", as the story states, unless that source was actually in the meeting.

That said, here is the narrative that CNN linked to the meeting:  

President Donald Trump is extremely frustrated with his senior staff and communications team for allowing the firestorm surrounding Attorney General Jeff Sessions to steal his thunder in the wake of his address to Congress, sources tell CNN.

 

"Nobody has seen him that upset," one source said, adding the feeling was the communications team allowed the Sessions news, which the administration deemed a nonstory, to overtake the narrative.

 

On Thursday, Sessions recused himself from any current or future investigations into ties between Russia and the Trump campaign after it was reported he had met with the Russian ambassador to the US, something he had previously failed to disclose.

 

In particular, the renewed focus on Russia is seen as a major letdown after Tuesday when top officials were riding high, congratulating one another on Trump's speech to Congress.

 

"The staff fumbled," Trump told the team for not being prepared when the Sessions story came out, according to another source.

 

When the President returned to the White House Thursday evening from a day trip to Virginia, there were "a lot of expletives." The source said for more than a week Trump had been lamenting that his senior staff "just keep getting in their own way."

Meanwhile, just a couple of hours after the Oval Office meeting, Trump tweeted his now infamous accusations that Obama ordered the tapping of his Trump Tower phone lines.

 

So, just to summarize, in the end, all CNN really revealed was that i) they have a spy cam setup to film the oval office and ii) Steve Bannon pointed his finger at someone. Yet another great piece of 'fake news' courtesy of CNN.

The laws make no distinction, sucks when it's used on the government.  BTW they also taped Obama.

Actually, the law does make a distinction. It's illegal to record shit in a federal building without consent. 

FrozenGoodz's picture

This is more important than MuslimBan2.0 and the President not conferring with the FBI prior to accusing his predecessor of wire tapping his phone .. this should be the lead

Chris Cuomo: Well, we can't be doing any more than we are doing to topple the Trump administration.

there is a simple solution to this. If even 20% of of Trump's supporters called their local cable company and told them to cancel their service until such time the cable company drops CNN from the lineup, CNN would be SOL inside of 2 weeks.

MSNBC has got to go, too. They're just as bad, if not worse.

I find the video disturbing. CNN is morally bankrupt in so mant ways.

Rule: whatever a progressive does is righteous even if it is illegal. Only the right is capable of actually committing evil. Just watch the way they have behaved for the last 100 years.

This could have been avoided simply by suspending a cloth such as the one Hillary used to wipe her server from a curtain rod effectively blocking any outsider's view of the Oval Office. And you thought Hillary wasn't on the ball.

TeamDepends's picture

Here's an idea, since it is painfully clear the progcomms will stop at literally nothing to get dirt on Trump, he should simply tape copies of the Constitution over all windows.

that's good.

i was thinking install a custom blind with CNN IS FAKE NEWS embroidered on the outside but i like your idea better.

Spying on and recording top clearance presidential meetings...

I'm no lawyer but it seems to me that CNN should be charged with some form of Espionage or at the very least, Russian hacking.

They never would have done this to fellow pedogater Obama.

Sue them.

You don't have the right to film into houses because you have an expectation of privacy.

This shit will never end until President Trump sends in ARMED troops and kills these bastards at the very first sign of resistance. These people need top die as they are an insurrection that must be stopped.

All this drama next to the WH window without curtains was to check who reports what.

Well for the last 8 years, the only spy footage of this nature, through that window, was Obama getting fucked by Reggie or Chewbacca's schlong...

There is no law I realized when Comey listed Hillary's crimes and yet failed to indict her.

The Director of Weasles slapped Americans in the face with a big, "Fuck you!"

If they were discussing classified information of any kind, every employee of CNN just became potentially liable for espionage charges.

Be thankful that CNN never had Bathroom Cam.  The last thing we needed to see was Reggie Love bending Chalky over the sink.

CNN.... what a joke.  Brian Stelter.... lmfao.  Fagboy making shit up on a shitty TeeVee channel to sound important.  If he had a lisp, I might give him some cred.... lol :-)

Let's call CNN what it rightfully is:  A FUCKING JOKE.

I watch CNN occasionally to find out what's not true.

Why confer with the FBI ? A U.S. President does not need anyone's ok to wire tap any U.S. citizen. President Trump knew this.

By the law the government can spy on the government in that case.  It's a federal group responsible for federal level intelligence and security watching a federal building as part of their agency mandate.  There are no exceptions and a million ways around every law because there are so many of them.  If they didn't think about that then that's their problem.

Ex-Oligarch's picture

Though you might have mistaken it for a federal goverenment propaganda project during the Obama administration, CNN is not in fact a government agency.

There are no rules or lines in the sand here.  Anything is possible, anyone telling you different is selling you something.

I thought CNN IS a governemnt agency , part of the CIA. Am I wrong ?

The law says shut the curtains actually.

CPL's picture

Exactly.  They could have circumvented thousands of hours of planning, billions of dollars in technology managed in a department of 1000's simply by closing the curtains over and watching where they talk.

Try taking a camera into the House and Senate galleries. There is no discussion on the matter.

No shit, I took a picture at post office ,  you would a thought I killed someone

but does it mean the person doing the recording has to be in the building?  because this is recorded from outside looking in and theres no voice only visual.

Some time ago I photograped a bunch of lowlifes damaging my neighbor's garage. They called the police to which it was not at all a breeze for me to prove I was not a "pervert". This is NY state. I was so pissed about the officers' interrogation of my motivations - not the hoodlums' - taht I looked online into the legality of it all. Turned out in NY you can photograph everything existing in the public view, but not through a window into "private" space (house, car,etc).

They've watched everyone since the cross dresser in the 50's running the FBI started it.  It's a slippery slope and if they don't like it, they can suck it up.  It's how they built it...as retarded as everyone knows it is, it does keep the slobs busy.

"In unrelated news, a stray Cruise Missile unexpectedly impacted a CNN news van several hundred yards down the road from the White House. Onlookers were shocked to note the surprisingly large amount of "Comet Pizza" boxes strewn about the scene in heaps and piles of burning rubbish. Now back to Tom with the weather..."

Thank you.

No wonder the government of Venezuela kicked their sorry asses out of that country!

CPL's picture

No one likes a gossipy government do they?  Usually means that government isn't there for business, if they ain't got business...then they got no business being there.  Venezuela showing them the door is a sensible reaction to flibbertigibbet's standing around blabbing.

toady's picture

Politics and MSM fakery aside, this is a major security problem... they better be kicking the shit out of whoever is responsible for not allowing clear sight lines to the president. Could have just as easily been a rifle with a high power scope as a "spy cam".

TwelveOhOne's picture

Exactly, like that pie-throwing (or shoe-throwing) incident(s) a few years back -- if they can get that close with a pie (or a shoe), they can get that close with more deadly items.
