Obama spied on thousands of Americans illegally

Circa, an on-line information service, believes that former President Barack Obama appeared to have made the NSA illegally spy on more than 5 000 Americans in 2016.

    Circa’s verdict is based on documents from the National Director of Intelligence as well as a federal court judgement.

    A lawyer from ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), has confirmed that the surveillance had not been relevant to the war against terrorism and therefore had no legal basis of any description.

    The investigation was conducted by Circa’s director, John F. Solomon, the former editor-in-chief of the Washington Times and a researcher with the Center for Public Integrity.

    On each occasion, the trigger for interception has been a phone call from the United States abroad, as this is still permitted, in certain cases, under provisions of legislation adopted after the events of 9/11 if there is suspicion of terror.

    These Obama interceptions of communication, which have not been authorised by a judge, continued during the presidential electoral campaign and during the transitional period. Communications of Dennis Kucinich and investigative journalists were tapped.

    In 2011, Dennis Kucinich was still a Democratic congressman from Ohio. But he was against the bombing of Libya and a staunch opponent of Obama’s unauthorized war against the Qaddafi regime.

    The documents studied by Circa only relate to the action of the US agencies entrusted with providing foreign intelligence services. Such documents do not address action taken by the FBI, which may be of far greater significance.

    President Trump’s original national-security adviser, Michael Flynn, had his telephone communications with Russia’s ambassador to the US unlawfully disclosed to the Washington Post.

    The Obama administration weaponized the NSA’s legitimate monitoring of communications of foreign officials to stay one step ahead of domestic political opponents.

    Specifically the worn-out “Russia hacked the election” narrative, was seemingly used as camouflage for what was actually a political spying operation.

    In 1974, the then President Richard Nixon was forced to resign and several of his collaborators were imprisoned for spying on leaders of the opposition. “President Obama’s team sought NSA intel on thousands of Americans during the 2016 election”, said John F. Solomon, Circa, May 4th, 2017.
