Barack Obama may have spied on more Republican presidential candidates than just Donald Trump.

And one Senator has rocked the political world with allegations that the Obama administration may have spied on his presidential campaign.

He’s raising questions that could blow open Obama’s abuse of power.

Rand Paul is claiming sources have told him Obama spied on his presidential campaign.

Breitbart reports:

“Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Friday told Breitbart News that several sources have told him that the Obama administration spied on his presidential campaign.

“We’ve had several people come to us and say that it happened. I don’t have access to that information, but I’ve been very concerned that too many Americans’ information is being culled through without a warrant,” he told Breitbart News.

“I don’t have any facts to say it happened,” he said. “But numerous sources are coming to us saying it did happen so I want to search through, find out why I wasn’t notified. Was it on purpose?”

“There’s a lot of things to be found out, particularly since we found out that Susan Rice was unmasking people and we need to know was there a political motivation, because one of the real dangers in a free society is if government gets so powerful it’s listening to all of our phone calls, the possibility of extortion, the possibility of blackmail — all of that goes up exponentially,” he said.”

Paul’s bombshell allegations come on the heels of a new report revealing that the Obama administration made unprecedented use of its spying powers during the 2016 election.

Circa reported the federal government increased its searches on American citizen’s records by nearly 30 percent during 2016:

“In all, government officials conducted 30,355 searches in 2016 seeking information about Americans in NSA intercept metadata, which include telephone numbers and email addresses. The activity amounted to a 27.5 percent increase over the prior year and more than triple the 9,500 such searches that occurred in 2013, the first year such data was kept. 

The government in 2016 also scoured the actual contents of NSA intercepted calls and emails for 5,288 Americans, an increase of 13 percent over the prior year and a massive spike from the 198 names searched in 2013.

The searches ultimately resulted in 3,134 NSA intelligence reports with unredacted U.S. names being distributed across government in 2016, and another 3,354 reports in 2015. About half the time, U.S. identities were unredacted in the original reports while the other half were unmasked after the fact by special request of Obama administration officials.”

Paul has requested information as to whether Obama spied on him from both the White and the House and Senate Intelligence Committees.

The extent of Obama’s spying scandal is not yet known.

While the so-called “mainstream” media tried to dismiss Trump’s claim that Obama spied on his campaign, we know the FBI obtained a FISA warrant to put one-time Trump aide Carter Page under surveillance.

Now a second presidential candidate has stepped forward and is raising questions about his campaign being under surveillance.
