After Days Of Silence, NSA Whistleblower Drops Stunning Wiretap Testimony!

It’s looking more and more like Donald Trump was right in his assertion that his election campaign headquarters, Trump Tower, actually was wiretapped by a US government agency. Whether former President Obama ordered it, remains to be seen.

Apparently, after the Twin Towers disaster of September 11, 2001, a data monitoring program was created during the George W. Bush administration to spy on Americans by monitoring all telephone calls within the United States.

This information came to light when a whistleblower, former NSA member, Bill Binney exposed it, after resigning in protest because of the intrusive nature of the program he helped to create.

From US News & World Report:

“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. Everyone’s conversations are being monitored and stored, Binney said.

On Monday he came to the defense of the president, whose allegations on social media over the weekend that outgoing President Barack Obama tapped his phones during the 2016 campaign have rankled Washington.

President Trump caused a firestorm of protest among Democrats when he tweeted about the alleged wiretapping:

But it may not have been Obama who ordered the wiretapping:

Binney seemed to go further than the assessment of former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, a George W. Bush administration official, who offered a tacit defense of Trump to ABC on Sunday.

“This is the difference between being correct and right,” Mukasey said. “The president was not correct in saying President Obama ordered a tap on a server in Trump Tower. However, I think he’s right in that there was surveillance and that it was conducted at the behest of the attorney general – at the Justice Department through the FISA court.”

So it appears it was probably Obama’s former Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, gave the order. However, since she was appointed by President Obama, the buck would ultimately stop with him.

Either way, whatever information that was gathered on Trump most assuredly made it’s way back to Obama and he used it to try and manipulate the outcome of the election.

Trump was right again!
