Report: Obama Spied on Thousands During 2016 Election Year

A bombshell report could reveal that former president Barack Obama set new standards for abuses of power during his final year in office as he sought to put Democrats in charge of all three branches of government and set the course for a radical transformation of America as it has existed.

The fierce media and political pushback over President Trump’s now legendary tweet that he had been “wiretapped” by Obama was an indication that Trump was on the mark with his accusation. While the media presstitutes played word games in order to discredit the term “wiretapping” – an archaic form of spying that has been replaced by vastly more sophisticated forms of surveillance – enemies of Trump including the odious Senator John McCain demanded an apology for daring to suggest such a thing.

But then a funny thing happened along the way to the pillorying of Trump. Information was provided to House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes that showed that there was indeed “incidental” data collection on Trump associates and that none of it involved Russia.

The entire establishment attack machine was redirected at Nunes who was predictably accused of being an agent of Putin among other vile things. Democrats the filed an ethics complaint (ensuring that it contained classified information so Nunes couldn’t defend himself) and drove him from leadership of Adam Schiff’s dirty little witch hunt against Trump based on cooked “evidence” largely derived from the discredited “PeeGate” dossier from aspiring James Bond and former Brit spook Christopher Steele.

But Nunes ended up opening a huge can of worms when it came to unmasking the identities of Americans in highly classified intel reports and then making it available to a large group who could then leak details to the media or worse – gin up a completely phony case against Trump that would certainly result in impeachment hearings.

But once Obama’s former national security advisor Susan Rice was outed as being involved in the process of the unmasking it was a gamechanger that could end up implicating Obama himself in what at the very least is the abuse of national security protocols to conduct political espionage.

Now according to an astonishing report, Obama and his inner circle received thousands of reports from the NSA containing unrredacted names. That Obama ran the White House in the manner of another famous Chicagoan named Al Capone is a given, the real question is whose names were in those reports?

Could Obama have not only been surveilling Trump team members but the entire Republican party field in order to put his thumb on the scale for Hillary Clinton? That is one hell of a question is it not?

Circa.com reports “President Obama’s team sought NSA intel on thousands of Americans during the 2016 election”:

During his final year in office, President Obama’s team significantly expanded efforts to search National Security Agency intercepts for information about Americans, distributing thousands of intelligence reports across government with the unredacted names of U.S. residents during the midst of a divisive 2016 presidential election.

The data, made available this week by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, provides the clearest evidence to date of how information accidentally collected by the NSA overseas about Americans was subsequently searched and disseminated after President Obama loosened privacy protections to make such sharing easier in 2011 in the name of national security. A court affirmed his order.

The revelations are particularly sensitive since the NSA is legally forbidden from directly spying on Americans and its authority to conduct warrantless searches on foreigners is up for renewal in Congress later this year. And it comes as lawmakers investigate President Trump’s own claims that his privacy was violated by his predecessor during the 2016 election.

In all, government officials conducted 30,355 searches in 2016 seeking information about Americans in NSA intercept metadata, which include telephone numbers and email addresses. The activity amounted to a 27.5 percent increase over the prior year and more than triple the 9,500 such searches that occurred in 2013, the first year such data was kept.

The government in 2016 also scoured the actual contents of NSA intercepted calls and emails for 5,288 Americans, an increase of 13 percent over the prior year and a massive spike from the 198 names searched in 2013.

The searches ultimately resulted in 3,134 NSA intelligence reports with unredacted U.S. names being distributed across government in 2016, and another 3,354 reports in 2015. About half the time, U.S. identities were unredacted in the original reports while the other half were unmasked after the fact by special request of Obama administration officials.

Among those whose names were unmasked in 2016 or early 2017 were campaign or transition associates of President Trump as well as members of Congress and their staffers, according to sources with direct knowledge.

The data kept by ODNI is missing some information from one of the largest consumers of NSA intelligence, the FBI, and officials acknowledge the numbers are likely much higher when the FBI’s activity is added.

I would highly recommend reading the entire report here. Circa.com has done some of the finest journalism out there on the unfolding Obama illegal surveillance controversy unlike the fake news pimps in the mainstream media.

The Circa.com report presents a compelling and possibly damning case that the narcissistic Obama was so obsessed with his precious “legacy” that he was prepared to break every rule in the book to make sure that a Democrat replaced him and would pick the next several Supreme Court justices.

Not to mention the possibility that Obama was abusing his powers to spy on members of Congress. While the corrupt media is completely ignoring the story, former GOP presidential candidate and sitting U.S. Senator Rand Paul has requested answers on whether he had been under surveillance as well as other figures of influence:

Senator Paul unleashed a series of tweets on Friday:

There now appears to be a damned good explanation on why Obama never reigned in some of the Bush administration’s more controversial spying programs nor called for sweeping reforms after the revelations of former government contractor turned whistleblower Edward Showden.

He fully intended to use the awesome powers of the greatest high tech surveillance machine in human history for political means.

In a follow-up article, Circa.com has requested that the Trump administration declassify the records as below:

Circa has formally requested that the Trump administration declassify records showing how often government officials have searched National Security Agency intercepts for intelligence on U.S. presidential candidates, members of Congress, journalists, clergy, lawyers, federal judges and doctors and how often such Americans had their identities unmasked by the intelligence community after Barack Obama made it easier to do so in 2011.

There is no way that the Deep State and its stooges in Congress, harlots in the media and disdain for the principles upon which this country was founded on are going to go down without a fight on this one. Because once one layer gets peeled back each subsequent layer is going to reveal a very rotten onion and years if not decades of abuse that reached its apex under the fiendish Obama. While Obama was hailed by the media as a constitutional scholar some cynics like this humble author have always wondered if that was his very appeal, to know all of the blast points that would take the entire shebang down.

This story isn’t going away anytime soon folks…
