If people are questioning whether or not Donald Trump was wiretapped or surveilled, they might want to listen to this next interview with Senator Paul. He has a solution for it – start putting them in jail.

George Stephanopoulos interviewed Senator Rand Paul, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, on This Week Sunday. Paul told him “we know for sure the Obama administration did spy on Flynn”.

General Hayden admitted that the lowest level analysts can unmask Americans and the ones who leaked need to go to jail, he said further.

Stephanopoulos asked:

“Finally, sir, you’re also a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. We see the president standing by that claim about President Obama. It’s caused a rift now with British intelligence over the weekend. How big a problem is this for the president’s credibility? How does he fix it?”

Paul gave him an answer the abc news commentator probably didn’t expect.

“I think that we know one thing for sure, that the Obama administration did spy on Flynn. Now, whether it was direct or indirect, somebody was reading and taking — a transcript of his phone calls and then they released it.”

He continued.

“It is very, very important that whoever released that go to jail, because you cannot have members of the intelligence community listening to the most private and highly classified information and then releasing that to The New York Times.”

Stephanopoulos asked him if he believed Obama wiretapped Trump, expecting ‘no’ for an answer.

“Well, what happens is it’s different than that,” Paul said. “We target foreigners all the time, but they talk to Americans. They talk to the president. They talk to the national security advisers. And they’re supposed to be masked.”

“But there was something alarming the other day.”

“General Hayden admitted that people all the way down to some of the lowest analysts can unmask who the American is. So, someone unmasked General Flynn and they’re a low-level analyst, we need to be looking at their computer and find out if they unmasked that conversation and if they spoke with The New York Times you have got to put those people in jail, because you cannot allow this to happen, or we will have presidents being blackmailed or national security advisers being blackmailed.”

It’s a very serious national security breach.

“This is a huge, huge problem, bigger than anything else that’s being discussed is the fact that private conversations from the intelligence community’s perspective are being leaked to the press. That’s not like a leak that says, oh, the president watches TV in his bathrobe, this is important to national security, you can’t let it happen.”

  1. At least some members of the U.S. intelligence community are placing partisan, political interests above America’s interest. There has been a series of leaks by “anonymous sources” concerning confidential intelligence investigations. Given that these leaks all concerned confidential intelligence investigations, it is by no means a far cry for President Trump to presume that the leakers were intelligence officials. Moreover, the intelligence branches have a documented history of leaking.
    After a stream of leaks — which, to be clear, is unlawful — and the intelligence community stonewalling Republicans in Congress who sought information on the Russian hacking, Trump has merely called for documented evidence before he accepted the conclusion. He was attempting to hold the intelligence agencies accountable. We have become an oligarchy in form if not in name. Hooked on war, genuflecting to big donors, in thrall to discredited economic theories and utterly bereft of a moral compass, America’s governing classes are selling their souls to entrenched interest while our bridges collapse, wages, stagnate, and our water is increasingly undrinkable.
    The deep state, state within a state, shadow government, or permanent government is a fluid network of individuals with de facto control of a national government. Many “democratically elected” governments work as fronts, allowing the deep state to operate in secret while providing a level of plausible deniability. On matters of deep political importance, the public machinery of government is routinely subverted by agents of the deep state. Because President Trump is an outsider, he is a threat to the deep state.
    Speaking before The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on March 20, 2017, Comey confirmed that the F.B.I. is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government — and whether there was any coordination. Mr. Comey further told lawmakers that the investigation began in July, but he conceded that he had only “recently” briefed congressional leaders on the existence of the F.B.I. investigation. Asked why he had waited so long, he said, “Because of the sensitivity of the matter.” This means that the FBI had the Trump campaign under surveillance since July of 2017. What about that & who authorized it? If there was an investigation, and Comey admitted that there was, then there was surveillance!
    It appears that Comey, Director of the FBI, is carrying water for the deep state oligarchs to keep the falsehoods alive and well for these criminals. He is aiding and abetting the Democrats because he is part of the massively corrupted deep state that has over taken our government and the entire judicial system, both federal and state! Although Comey later in this hearing said there’s no information to support Trump’s tweets accusing former President Obama of wiretapping his communications, earlier in the hearing, the chairman of the House intelligence Devin Nunes (R-CA) said there was no FISA physical wiretap on Trump Tower, but it’s possible that “other surveillance activities” were used against Trump and his associates.
    The Trump campaign was definitely under surveillance. President Donald Trump is “absolutely right” to claim he was wiretapped and monitored, a former NSA official claimed Monday, March 20, 2017, adding that the administration risks falling victim to further leaks if it continues to run afoul of the intelligence community. “I think the president is absolutely right. His phone calls, everything he did electronically, was being monitored,” Bill Binney, a 36-year veteran of the National Security Agency who resigned in protest from the organization in 2001, told Fox Business on Monday, March 20, 2017. Everyone’s conversations are being monitored and stored, Binney said. The judges on the FISA court are “not even concerned, nor are they involved in any way with the Executive Order 12333 collection,” Binney said during the radio interview. “That’s all done outside of the courts. And outside of the Congress.” Binney told Fox the laws that fall under the FISA court’s jurisdiction are “simply out there for show” and “trying to show that the government is following the law, and being looked at and overseen by the Senate and House intelligence committees and the courts.” “That’s not the main collection program for NSA,” Binney said.
