While anti-Trump critics were quick to deny any thought or mention of the Obama administration spying on what was then President Trump’s election campaign, the truth has finally prevailed.
According to a report from the ultra-liberal Washington Post, Obama’s Justice Department and FBI specifically targeted a member of the Trump campaign team and the details will make you furious.
Sean Hannity reports:
The Federal Bureau of Investigations sought and obtained a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) warrant on Carter Page, according to a report from The Washington Post. The report states that the FBI got the warrant in the Summer of 2016, while Page was still associated with the Trump campaign.
The Washington Post reports:
The FBI obtained a secret court order last summer to monitor the communications of an adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, part of an investigation into possible links between Russia and the campaign, law enforcement and other U.S. officials said.
The FBI and the Justice Department obtained the warrant targeting Carter Page’s communications after convincing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court judge that there was probable cause to believe Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power, in this case Russia, according to the officials.
This is the first time we’re learning that an intelligence agency directly surveilled a member of the Trump team.
Page maintains that he has done nothing wrong, and called the surveillance unjust and “politically motivated.”
“This confirms all of my suspicions about unjustified, politically motivated government surveillance,” Page told the Washington Post on Tuesday. “I have nothing to hide.”
There’s no indication of what, if anything, the FBI learned from their surveillance. It is, however, telling that almost a year later no charges have been brought against Mr. Page, or anyone associated with the Trump campaign.
SHARE this on Facebook and Twitter if you think this probably wasn’t the only case of the Obama admin spying on Trump’s team.
