Domestic Spying

According to Judge Andrew Napolitano, the intelligence community is petrified of a Congressional investigation into claims that Barack Obama spied on Donald Trump because it would expose the fact that every American is under mass surveillance and that their conversations are all being digitally recorded by the NSA.

Appearing on Fox & Friends this morning, Napolitano pointed out that Obama would not have needed FISA court approval to conduct surveillance of Trump and that he could have simply ordered his Attorney General to set it in motion.
“The idea that it was illegal to listen to the phone calls and in person conversations of Donald Trump is wrong,” said Napolitano, adding that although it was immoral and unconstitutional, such power has resided in the hands of the president since Jimmy Carter.

He added that it would then be easy for Obama to ask the NSA, which is a part of the military, to turn over any conversation that Trump had with anyone in Trump Tower.
