While the MSM may have moved on from the wire tapping scandal, concerned Americans have not. It turns out that Obama may have used our allies to spy on Trump.
Daily Wire reports:
“While the American Intelligence Community (IC) plays “not us” when it comes to claims that the Obama Administration spied on President Trump (when he was both a candidate and President-elect), Fox News has learned that in order to avoid a paper trail, fingerprints, and pesky little details like the Bill of Rights, President Obama circumvented all of that by requesting the British spy on Trump.
Appearing on Fox News this morning, Judge Andrew Napolitano dropped this bombshell that could finally help to explain a whole lot, including a January 19 New York Times report about the Obama White House looking at intelligence information based on “wiretaps” (their word, not mine).
Here’s part of the Napolitano transcript:
Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command. He didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI, and he didn’t use the Department of Justice… He used GCHQ. What the heck is GCHQ? That’s the initials for the British spying agency. They have 24/7 access to the NSA database. So by simply having two people go to them and say ‘President Obama needs transcripts of conversations involving Candidate Trump, conversations involving President-Elect Trump,’ [Obama’s] able to get it, and there’s no American fingerprints on this.
During an appearance last night on Fox News, Napolitano went into greater detail to explain exactly how this would work. Basically, our NSA has access to pretty much every phone call. This is how they collect all that metadata. If they wish, however, they “can actually download into digital form the conversations and the texts” and turn it into transcripts. Through our NSA, the British have 24/7 access to that same capability.”
