Earlier this month, right-wing preacher Lance Wallnau announced that he and his prayer warriors would be “fasting and praying so that the Lord will turn the tables” on those who are working to undermine President Trump. And apparently those prayers are already working, according to Wallnau, based on the statement from Republican Rep. Devin Nunes yesterday that some communications involving members of Trump’s transition team had been “incidentally collected” during legal U.S. government surveillance of foreign targets.
Nunes’ statement, of course, did not corroborate Trump’s claims.
In a video posted on his Facebook page last night, Wallnau misrepresented the facts of the matter while suggesting that it was no coincidence that this information was revealed in the wake of their prayer efforts.
Wallnau said that Trump “has had his legitimacy as a president constantly questioned and harassed by the principalities and powers that are operating through the media and what we call the deep state,” which he said are spreading “fake news” in order to delegitimize the president.
“Interesting,” Wallnau said, “after the fast and after we’ve been praying and after we’ve been talking about the Haman being hung on his own gallows, today news comes out that says that there was indeed an agency-wide sharing of names of individuals that never should have been revealed; who were somehow caught in the net of surveillance that was being done and put into documents that were leaked to the press so as to create the impression that Trump is under investigation and that he’s under surveillance and being wiretapped.”
“When Donald Trump goes and says what he’s reading in the news, he’s accused of being insane,” Wallnau stated. “It’s an interesting kind of witchcraft going on there. It’s just so obvious to me.”
