Ever since Donald Trump claimed Barack Obama spied on Trump Tower, the media as been unrelenting in hounding the Trump administration for evidence.

They claim none exists.

But one Senator explained the sinister means Obama could have used to spy on Trump.

The media was furious when Trump tweeted that Obama spied on him.

Members of the press – who worship Obama and uniformly despise Trump – reacted in horror to Trump’s tweets.

 

Obama officials denied there was a FISA warrant for Trump Tower.

However, Senator Rand Paul explained the backdoor method the Obama administration could have used ot spy on Trump.

CNSNews reports:

“But the way it works is, the FISA court, through Section 702, wiretaps foreigners and then listens to Americans. It is a backdoor search of Americans. And because they have so much data, they can tap — type Donald Trump into their vast resources of people they are tapping overseas, and they get all of his phone calls.

And so they did this to President Obama. They — 1,227 times, eavesdropped on President Obama’s phone calls. Then they mask him. But here is the problem. And General Hayden said this the other day. He said even low-level employees can unmask the caller. That is probably what happened to (Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael) Flynn.

They are not targeting Americans. They are targeting foreigners. But they are doing it purposefully to get to Americans.”

Paul is referring to the leaks that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was making phone calls to the Russian Ambassador during the transition.

No one ever alleged Flynn did anything wrong, but Flynn was picked up on a tap placed on the Russian Ambassador.

It is illegal to divulge t\hat information.

Yet it was leaked to damage the Trump administration and it forced Flynn’s resignation.

Did the Obama administration use backdoor methods to spy on the Trump campaign?

Did they obtain FISA warrants on foreign nationals in the hope they would be able to spy on Trump or his associates and maybe find a conversation they could twist into a scandal.

It’s a possibility that needs to be investigated.
