By virtue of a Circa news report and intelligence officials who testified this week, we are now aware of how much Obama’s administration spied on American citizens, however weaponized intelligence against his political rivals, as well, the Trump team, naturally being among them.
And MSM still virtually ignores the story.
Via NY Post:
Circa News, luckily informed us about how the NSA managed by President Barack Obama infracted privacy protections on a daily basis, while lurking through foreign intercepts including US citizens — and was unable to disclose the breaches, making the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court a month prior to the election to rebuke administration officials.The story is about what’s known as “upstream” data gathering under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, by which the NSA looks at the electronic communication content. Upstream refers to information acquired about third parties: Person A sends Person B an e-mail which mentions Person C. Though Person C isn’t a party to the e-mail, his intel will be scooped up and possibly used by the NSA.The number of NSA look ups of American surfaced after Obama loosened the protections on disclosing the identities.
The FISA court referred to it as a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue” that NSA analysts — in violation of a 2011 rule change preventing officials from looking through Americans’ information without a warrant — “had been conducting such queries in violation of that prohibition, with much greater frequency than had been previously disclosed to the Court.”
A great deal of those searches were conducted by the White House, and involved private citizens working for the Trump campaign, some of whose identities were revealed to the media. The discoveries earned a stern rebuke from the ACLU and from civil-liberties champion Sen. Rand Paul.We also found out this week that Obama intelligence officials really had no legitimate reason attaching a Trump dossier summary to a highly classified Russia briefing they gave to Obama a couple of weeks before Trump took over.Why are people not speaking up about this? While John Brennan confessed that the dodgy Trump dossier was irrelevant into the Russian investigation since they could not ‘corroborate the sourcing’ on it, he still brought it up in briefings he gave Congressional Democrats and the President.
IF YOU ARE REVOLTED BY THE AMOUNT OF CRIMINAL HAPPENING UNDER OBAMA SHARE THIS STORY!
