Did Barack Obama spy on Donald Trump during the campaign?
Trump believes this to be the case, but the pro-Obama media furiously denies the allegation.
But an NSA insider has revealed the truth behind the shocking allegations.
Bill Binney is a former NSA operative who resigned from the agency after the September 11th terrorist attacks.
He proceeded to blow the whistle on the NSA’s illegal spying programs.
And he believes Donald Trump is 100% correct when he asserted the government was spying on Trump Tower during the campaign.
U.S. News reports:
President Donald Trump is “absolutely right” to claim he was wiretapped and monitored, a former NSA official claimed Monday, adding that the administration risks falling victim to further leaks if it continues to run afoul of the intelligence community.
“I think the president is absolutely right. His phone calls, everything he did electronically, was being monitored,” Bill Binney, a 36-year veteran of the National Security Agency who resigned in protest from the organization in 2001, told Fox Business on Monday. Everyone’s conversations are being monitored and stored, Binney said…
… On Monday he came to the defense of the president, whose allegations on social media over the weekend that outgoing President Barack Obama tapped his phones during the 2016 campaign have rankled Washington.”
Binney noted the FISA laws are “just for show”, and that the release of the contents of Trump’s calls with foreign leaders was an attempt by the intelligence community to bully the President.
U.S. News also reports:
But Binney told Sean Hannity’s radio show earlier Monday, “I think the FISA court’s basically totally irrelevant.”
The judges on the FISA court are “not even concerned, nor are they involved in any way with the Executive Order 12333 collection,” Binney said during the radio interview. “That’s all done outside of the courts. And outside of the Congress.”
Binney told Fox the laws that fall under the FISA court’s jurisdiction are “simply out there for show” and “trying to show that the government is following the law, and being looked at and overseen by the Senate and House intelligence committees and the courts.”
“That’s not the main collection program for NSA,” Binney said…
… “I think that’s what happened here,” Binney told Fox. “The evidence of the conversation of the president of the U.S., President Trump, and the [prime minister] of Australia and the president of Mexico. Releasing those conversations. Those are conversations that are picked up by the FAIRVIEW program, primarily, by NSA.”
This wouldn’t be the first time Obama was caught red-handed spying on Americans.
Edward Snowden revealed Obama’s NSA was illegally collecting every electronic communication on all Americans.
And the CIA was also accused of hacking into the computers of Senate Intelligence Committee staffers to find a document about Bush-era interrogation techniques the agency believed to be stolen.
The Obama administration’s credibility on this issue is near zero.
Multiple outlets have reported that the FBI sought – and obtained – a FISA warrant to monitor a server in Trump Tower they believed was communicating with a Russian bank.
This was proven not to be true.
But there is a lot of smoke gathering around the allegation that the Obama administration did, in fact, spy on Donald Trump during the campaign.
