Judge Andrew Napolitano claims that Barack Obama was definitely surveilling Donald Trump during the election, and also revealed that Obama ordered wiretaps by himself without going through an intelligence agency or court to get a warrant.
Former President Obama had the power to order the NSA to wiretap anyone at any time, Judge Napolitano said on Lou Dobbs Tonight, taking it upon himself to clear up the misinformation being spread by mainstream media on the issue of Obama’s involvement in the “Worse than Watergate” surveillance of Trump during the election.
“I’m sorry for the misunderstanding that there is around this story, but the statute is very clear. This is the statute that creates the FISA, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance court, and that statute says, “notwithstanding anything in this statute, the President of the United States may order the surveillance of anybody on the United States of America, upon the filing of a certification by the Attorney General that it relates to national security, a filing that no one can read, not even the judges with whom it is filed.”
Judge Napolitano was just getting warmed up, and he continued educating the mainstream media about the law – and what Obama was really up to during his time in the Oval Office.
“The notion that Obama would have to ask the FBI to get a search warrant? Out of the question.
The FBI has nothing to do with this, they are interested in law enforcement.
The idea that he would have to go to a FISA court to do this – out of the question.
Why would he go to the FISA to do something that he himself has the right to do.”
The idea that they actually had to tap Trump? Out of the question.
Because every phone call on every mobile device and landline, every keypad touch of every mobile device and desktop, every piece of digital information that flows into and out of the US on fibre optics, is captured in real time digitally by the NSA.
The NSA is in the Pentagon, it works for the President.“
According to Napolitano, when Obama asked the NSA for the transcript of any phone conversation between any two citizens of the United States, the NSA would have it on his desk in no time at all.
