Obama intel agency secretly conducted illegal searches on Americans for years
by John Solomon and Sara Carter
The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall, according to once top-secret documents that chronicle some of the most serious constitutional abuses to date by the U.S. intelligence community.
More than 5 percent, or one out of every 20 searches seeking upstream Internet data on Americans inside the NSA’s so-called Section 702 database violated the safeguards Obama and his intelligence chiefs vowed to follow in 2011, according to one classified internal report reviewed by Circa.
The Obama administration self-disclosed the problems at a closed-door hearing Oct. 26 before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that set off alarm. Trump was elected less than two weeks later.
FISA Court Finds "Serious Fourth Amendment Issue" In Obama's "Widespread" Illegal Searches Of American Citizens
by Tyler Durden, May 24, 2017 9:52 AM
A newly released court order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) found that the National Security Agency, under former President Obama, routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall. In describing the violations, the FISA court said the illegal searches conducted by the NSA under Obama were "widespread" and created a "very serious Fourth Amendment issue."
These new discoveries come from a recently unsealed FISA court document dated April 26, 2017 and center around a hearing dated October 26, 2017, just days before the 2016 election, in which the FISA court apparently learned for the first time of "widespread" and illegal spying on American citizens by the NSA under the Obama administration.
New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials.
The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election.
The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans.
Judicial Watch Sues for Records on Obama White House Unmasking Trump Associates
By Michael W. Chapman, May 26, 2017 11:22 AM EDT
(CNSNews.com) - Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit against the Justice Department (DOJ) and the National Security Agency (NSA) for information about Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice's communications concerning alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 election, the hacking of DNC computers, and the "unmasking" (identification by name) of any Trump campaign or transition team personnel as part of U.S. intelligence gathering activities.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton explained: “We want to know about the Obama White House involvement in the unprecedented spying on Donald Trump and other political opponents."
“This intelligence operation may have led to the illegal ‘unmasking’ of Americans and the leaking of intelligence information to foment the story of Russian hacking of the DNC and sinister Russian influence on Trump and his associates," he said. "The Trump administration has an opportunity to expose what the Obama White House was up to.”
"House Republicans call for answers"... Absolute Frigging Bullshit! The REPUBLICANS either authorized, passed or rubber stamped EVERY single BUSH/REPUBLICAN installed constitutional violations that obama used.
James Rosen: Comey's FBI Broke Its Own Rules & Procedures On Spying On Americans

obama spied on Trump and his staff. He also likely spied on Romney and his staff

It would explain everything.
Despite all the left wing blather, not a shred of evidence has ever been produced to give credence to the accusation that Trump colluded with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton. (Clinton has written a new book- “I lost because of….” and you can fill in the blank) It was conceived to distract the country and the mentally vacant press from the real scandal.
I have long said that had there been anything to the Trump-Russia accusation it would have leaked by now, as the White House is a sieve. It’s so bad that the number of times Donald Trump has taken a leak in a day is leaked within an hour. But if there was something, obama would have dropped the hammer before the election. He knew there wasn’t.
Newly declassified memos detail extent of improper Obama-era NSA spying
By John Solomon, 07/25/17 08:19 PM EDT
The National Security Agency and FBI violated specific civil liberty protections during the Obama administration by improperly searching and disseminating raw intelligence on Americans or failing to promptly delete unauthorized intercepts, according to newly declassified memos that provide some of the richest detail to date on the spy agencies’ ability to obey their own rules.
The memos reviewed by The Hill were publicly released on July 11 through Freedom of Information Act litigation by the American Civil Liberties Union.
They detail specific violations that the NSA or FBI disclosed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court or the Justice Department's national security division during President Obama’s tenure between 2009 and 2016. The intelligence community isn't due to report on compliance issues for 2017, the first year under the Trump administration, until next spring.
