Intelligence Sources Reveal: Obama Used British Agents For Trump Wire Tap Surveillance

While President Obama has vehemently denied issuing direct orders to the Justice Department or other domestic agencies to monitor President Trump during the 2016 election campaign, it is common knowledge that the National Security Agency has the ability to access video and audio from any number of devices in real time. In fact, according to Edward Snowden and documented in the recently released Snowden motion picture, U.S. spy agencies can simply flip a switch to watch or listen in on anything going on in a particular room by turning on a particular device’s cameras and microphones.

Here’s how it works:

The technology is real, but according to legal scholars, would have been illegal to use on Donald Trump or his surrogates without a warrant or probable cause indicating links to terrorist organizations.

But while domestic spy agencies like the NSA and CIA can’t actively monitor a citizen on U.S. soil, there is a very convenient work-around that has been used for over a decade to accomplish this task without technically breaking the law.

According to three intelligence sources who spoke with Judge Napolitano, this is exactly what President Obama did to then-candidate Donald Trump.

Steve Watson explains:

Three separate intelligence sources believe that former President Obama veered ‘outside the chain of command’ and employed British surveillance agents to conduct surveillance on Donald Trump’s team prior to the election, according to a legal analyst.

 

Judge Andrew Napolitano revealed on ‘Fox & Friends’ this morning that the sources spilled the details to him as the controversial case continues to dominate headlines.

 

Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command,” Napolitano said. “He didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI, and he didn’t use the Department of Justice.”

 

“He used GCHQ.” Napolitano explained.

 

“What the heck is GCHQ? That’s the initials for the British spying agency. They have 24/7 access to the NSA database.” The Judge explained.

 

Napolitano noted that this was done to secure plausible deniability. In other words, even if the Obama administration did spy on Trump, there may never be a way to prove it.

 

“So by simply having two people go to them saying, ‘President Obama needs transcripts of conversations involving candidate Trump, conversations involving president-elect Trump,’ he’s able to get it, and there’s no American fingerprints on this. ”Napolitano added.

We know who will fire the first shot. It will be one of these boundless progressive idiots who feels justified by their media's reinforcement, but as far as to whom it is attributed, well we know how that goes as.well.

Snoop keeps it up and there will be plenty of shots fired ...

All he is doing is putting bullseyes on homies that the Common Man has no qualms waiting for to make a mistake.

These will be the first pockets of shots to eliminate. Mark it down

See, the thing is nobody is going to see it coming - but everyone will nod their heads and agree it was inevitable afterwards.  The revolution won't be televised, not because MSM is shit (they are) but because those in power will NEVER let you see open defiance to keep you on your island of doubt.  The Bundy Ranch was as close as this country has come to outright shooting, but TPTB backed off because it would have been HUGELY visible.  We were inches from an armed conflict starting.  That wasn't Ruby Ridge, where the Feds controlled the narrative, and it wasn't Waco, where it was spun they were some religious cult that lit themselves up.

I'm not firing the first shot - those who start a revolution rarely the ones who finish it.  I intend to be around for the second wave revolution though.  Maybe that makes me a coward in your eyes.  Good thing I don't give a fuck what some anonymous asshole on the internet thinks.  Its coming though as sure as the sun will rise.  The dollar will go boom, just in time supply chains will dry up, then a whole lot of hungry people are going to want blood.  That's how history tells us things will happen, and I don't see anything that makes this time any different.  The only question is timing, and they have stretched things out so long I'm both amazed and somewhat impressed.  Just makes things worse in the end though.

Of course I'd be happy to be proven full of shit.  Nobody wants to move to Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil, and a bunch of other countries further along the timeline then we are for a very good reason - social breakdown is fucking horrible for everyone.  If you can't see how close to the edge we are as a society there is no way this random internet asshole will convince you.  Good luck with your throw of the dice though.

That depends on how you define 'evil'. Be mindful that different socio-economic classes have different views of Morality.

Why do I sense that your version of morality is that of your middle-class roots, projected onto everyone else?

Tip: Often it is more useful to think of what is 'necessary', not what is 'evil'. Doing what is necessary, is what all highly successful corporate, political and militarily leaders do. If you were one, you'd know that. Hate to pop your cherry, but even Thump does what is necessary.

Natural Law is not dependent on culture, but human nature. Evil is an objective concept, not a subjective one.

What confuses most people, is that evil is sometimes not identifiable until after the fact when relationships resolve.

The simplest way to think about it are forces of destruction vs creation.

exi1ed0ne's picture

All just words.  Keeping an unethical and contrary to natural rights apparatus could be considered necessary, depending on what your values are - as you so rightly point out.  So that word doesn't fit the bill either. "Necessary" is an action looking for justification.

There are universal rights recognized in the charter that We the People created to form this Government.  However, they are being violated by this apparatus's very existence.  We are in essence at the mercy of the willpower of man to resist the totalitarian control over everything that this gives.  Any time we have to rely on the restraint of mankind to resist power is a clue that is shouldn't exist in the first place.

I personally don't think anything is bad or good, but a mixture of degrees of each.  Good attempt at class-baiting though.

They don't call them the five eyes for nothing.  

 

Intel sharing and legal loopholes have been in place since the echelon days. 

MaxMax's picture

Most people probably don't know what Echelon was, but it was a joint effort of 5 countries to gather information about every phone call and fax starting in the early 1970's.  It was rumored for decades and wasn't confirmed until 2015.

The Five (brown) Eyes, FVEY, have been sharing information for 70 years.

Plausible deniability and circumventing legislative restrictions are its very reason for being.

How easy? Hypothetically collect sigint from one of the colonies e.g. the antipodean Pine Gap or Menwith Hill in old blighty and share it with everyone else except the target nation.

But the sieve leaks and accidents do happen. Oh my, I stumbled across something that those darn colonials didn't correctly compartmentalize.

And if they happen to file it away correctly then threaten to withhold the data goodness unless they 'accidentally' unfile the intel.

Sharing information with the colonies? What a laugh. They do the dirty work, provide the land ($1 annual rent agreements) and facilities and get the crumbs off the table in return. NOFORN is our business.

Que serra, serra.

Pay for advertising like normal people. Fundamentally, you are a thief. You are stealing Tylers' resources, Zerohedge readers' time and you are a worthless, narrow-minded incompetent (((journalist))) to boot.

Your site is pathetically biased, badly written, and generally an embarrassment. Juvenile is the word that springs to mind. Obviously, if it was any good you would get readership automatically, but it isn't so you have to waste my time instead.

Get a life, and pay Tyler some money for a sponsored slot (ask you mum to pay for you if you are not old enough to have a credit card).

There is no trust between the US deep state and Israel, and Israel has no direct influence on the US. That all comes from the Rothschild nexus.

Obama was a banking puppet, not an Israeli puppet. Rothschilds wouldn't still be alive if they cut out their middle men. People would catch on.

"As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false."

Right, Obama couldn't order GCHQ,  but he could request.

GCHQ sounds like an upscale men's store.

allow me to interpret.

"neither President Obama nor any White House official ever..."

means...

"the President and White House officials got someone else to give the order that wasn't an "official" or the President"

The battle of the unnamed intelligence sources.  So basically both sides can say anything they want and say that unnamed sources back them up.  And I suppose we're supposed to believe the unnamed sources who support what our Team says.  I don't believe it when the MSM does it to support claims that Trump is a Russian spy, and I don't believe it now when used to support claims that Obama wiretapped Trump.  Show me the money.

slyhill's picture

That seems to be what is going on here: "You've got unnamed sources? Well, I've got unnamed sources too, we all got unnamed sources."

Great primer on dog whistling confirmation bias.

The one awesome thing about this entire shitshow is that I'd bet this is the first time many people have heard that foreign intellegence services have unfettered access to our unconstitutional dragnet of data.  I love it when they have to pull the curtain back, no matter the reason.

You have to admit that since Trump’s election, whether he did it or not, we have certainly learned who our enemies are…

PRISM isn't new.

PRISM began in 2007 in the wake of the passage of the Protect America Act under the Bush Administration.

Not much of a struggle, if there are no people commiting 'suicide'.

There's much that BHO has to learn on how to tie up loose ends. Dead men tell no tales.

A racist is someone who hates the previous President of the USA more than strictly necessary.

swmnguy's picture

There's such rich material for hatred in the man's actions, why would anyone need to hate him for who his parents were.  Cheapens the argument needlessly.

And, for the record, it's always been a matter for pride to me that America could, at long last and after all we've been through, elect as President a man from Hawaii.  It was long overdue.

Whilst all the 'human-interest' centered around Obama's father/s, the hidden story always was with his (Sshhhhhh) WHITE mother...   That is where the cleverness, conniving and vindictive streak came from and that Fucker was well adept at using it.
