A former NSA employee told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson that the NSA did likely spy on President Trump and may be continuing to do so.
While many are encouraged by the mainstream media to laugh at President Trump’s assertion that he was subject to surveillance under the Obama Administration, the NSA, according to a man who worked there for 36 years, has a program specifically used for spying on high ranking officials, including justices on the Supreme Court, congressmen and women, and Joint Chiefs of Staff
former NSA employee Bill Binney revealed he believes the NSA likely did spy on Trump and may even be spying on him now.
“As I just said in my intro, you spent 30 years there,” Carlson said to Binney. “You’re not someone whose just speculating. You believe it’s entirely possible that the president was, in fact, spied on?”
“Yes,” Binney replied. “In fact, they’re taking in fundamentally the entire fiber network inside the United States and collecting all that data and storing it, in a program, they call it, it’s Stellar Wind is the name for their program. That’s the domestic collection of data on U.S. citizens. … everything we’re doing: phone calls, emails, and then financial transactions, credit cards, things like that—all of it.”
In addition to the massive amount of data collected on all people, Binney, who served 36 years at the NSA, says another NSA whistleblower has said there is a program within the NSA designed specifically to spy on law-abiding officials serving at the highest levels of government.
Trump’s “wiretapping” accusation the media laughed off is not a joke. Thanks to numerous whistle blowers, most of us know that the NSA can and does spy on law-abiding Americans, illegally.
“Inside NSA … they’re targeting and looking at all the members of the Supreme Court, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Congress—both House and Senate—as well as the White House,” Binney said. “And all of this data is there inside NSA at this small group, where they’re looking at it. And the idea is to see what people with power over you, what they think, what they think you should be doing, what they’re planning to do to you, your budget or whatever, so you can try to counteract it before it actually happens.”
House Intelligence Committee chair, Devin Nunes, also announced just days ago that there is evidence that U.S. intelligence officers “incidentally” collected information via surveillance on Donald Trump.
The assertion that Trump tweeted his accusations of “wire tapping” without evidence is quickly falling apart.
