Collusion implies a criminal act. President Obama could change whatever rules he wanted as head of the Executive Branch. Just because you disagree with something doesn’t make it illegal.
I know you boys love your conspiracy theories but please try to maintain a basic degree of sanity.
I’ll play along for just a minute though.
Let’s say that Ambassador Rice informed President Obama that a candidate for President was indeed colluding with Russian operatives. Just because this individual was running for office doesn’t mean they get a pass. It means that surveilling them should have taken place because it could cause a national security risk to America if they were working with a foreign government.
