Wire-tapping political enemies is just one way President Obama got his intel.
Except the mainstream media never reported it when it occurred — however, Trump shed light on the subject after he revealed that he was a victim of the Obama administration’s eavesdropping techniques during the presidential transition.
In May 2013, it was reported that then-President Obama had illegally seized — through Eric Holder’s Department of Justice — two months of phone conversations for reporters and editors of the Associated Press.
The Department of Justice secretly obtained phone records for reporters and editors who work for the Associated Press news agency, including records for the home phones and cell phones of individual journalists, according to the AP, in what the agency characterized as “serious interference with AP’s constitutional rights to gather and report the news.”
The records, covering all of April and May 2012, were seized by the DoJ earlier this year and covered more than 20 separate phone lines. The records listed outgoing calls for both the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, as well as the general phone lines for AP bureaus in New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn., and a main number used by AP reporters in the House of Representatives.
