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.

"Occam’s Razor – Did NSA Admiral Mike Rogers Warn Trump On November 17th, 2016?…

Posted on March 3, 2017 by sundance

On Thursday November 17th, 2016, NSA Director Mike Rogers traveled to New York and met with President-Elect Donald Trump.

On Friday November 18th The Washington Post reported on a recommendation in “October” that Mike Rogers be removed from his NSA position:

The heads of the Pentagon and the nation’s intelligence community have recommended to President Obama that the director of the National Security Agency, Adm. Michael S. Rogers, be removed.

The recommendation, delivered to the White House last month, was made by Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., according to several U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

In a move apparently unprecedented for a military officer, Rogers, without notifying superiors, traveled to New York to meet with Trump on Thursday at Trump Tower. That caused consternation at senior levels of the administration, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal personnel matters.

Remember, historically The Washington Post is the preferred outlet for the CIA and Intelligence Community within Deep State to dump their “leaks” and stories. The State Department “leaks” to CNN for the same purposes.

You have a scandal about Democrat election illegality and the story is twisted into "someone stole our dirty laundry". Hillary and the Dims wanted to control the security apparatus of the nation and they couldn't keep their own "house" safe. This latest act of TREASON should put obola away for life. Foreign intelligence surveilling Americans at the behest of an American president. The DOJ must prosecute as the Dims have shown they will stop at nothing to destroy this president.

That's a can of worms nobody in either party would want to see opened.  Once that precedent is set there's no former President alive who'd rest easy.

There may be some confidential off the record information exchanged there.

Can you hear me now Madam Merkel?

What ever happened to that Weiner laptop and 650k emails?  Even if Trump was not planning to actually prosecute anyone he could surely have his own set of blackmail files and quietly tell these people to stop their bullshit or else. 

With his guy running DOJ and at least some white hats in NSA/CIA/FBI loyal to him he must also have access to lots of previous corruption investigations with dirt on all his enemies.

So why does it seem he is absorbing one attack after another and has not even made a veiled threat at prosecuting any of his political enemies.

I really don't get it. 

JesusUp's picture

is he draining the swamp or cleaning the augean stables?

crossroaddemon's picture

You don't get it? Really? Naive much?

bowie28's picture

I prefer to say I was hopeful and giving it a little time to see how this played out but day by day the signs are looking worse.  I guess Naive works too.

So what's his end game? 

Is he going to let himself get run out of office? 

Or was his goal all along nothing more than to get the Trump name established as the newest political dynasty in the US, along with the Kennedys, Bushes and Clintons, so he will just continue the PTB agenda but with a new MAGA branding?

Anarchyteez's picture

Totally! Why absorb the body blows without any counterpunching?

Wtf is going on?

Bastiat's picture

It takes time to develop a case, especially if you are turning suspects to State's evidence -- they still have lawyers.  It takes time.  I find the story very credible that Weiner is singing like a bird, personally I expected that from the start. Why do you think he named the folder "Life Insurance?"  Carlos Danger does not want to go to prison and explain his behaviour with minors to these guys:

British Intel was active in trying to stop Trump with the bogus Russian Golden Shower Affair and now this.  GCHQ Head Hannigan resigned weeks ago, too.

No coincidence here:

Can a subpoena to appear before congress be served on a Foreign National?  Me thinks not.  

Good luck nailing the deep state/Obama on this one.

Great link, Moonpie. I donated $10 to the Guardian. It seems like they, ZH, RT, The Intercept, and Matt Taibbi are the only journalists worth reading/watching anymore.

Hannigan got his panties in a wad over technology companies.   I remember that now.


He knows echelon's days are numbered.  


They will nail themselves eventually if they aren't playing straight.  Actually they will likely nail themselves eventually anyway.

The seriousness of the charge should have all good leftist Nazi's up in arms, demanding answers. Oh ... wait; Obama was black and a Dem ... fucking nevermind ... this shit is only good if a Republican is in office ... please return to watching Meryl Streep make an ass of herself.

No substantiation and we're just supposed to buy this no contest? Unnamed intel guys revealing supposed info that could probably get them prosecuted if they're identified? I'm becoming more convinced than ever that this whole thing is a big-ass media psyop.

 I came to that very same realization when we were left with the two most hated people in the country to pick between. It also explains Mitt the twit and Mccain running against O. Big brother played us same as always.

If it exists anywhere in the public domain, it's probably a psyop.  The truth is out there, though, but you need spiritual discernment to find it.  That, and a whole lot of patience and determination.

crossroaddemon's picture

Well, if the tax return kerfluffle yesterday didn't make it clear that Trump and the media are in cahoots I don't know what will... the whole thing was too retarded to be believable. It's been going on for over a year; they attack him and he becomes more of a hero. It's all bullshit.

VWAndy's picture

 Thats how his support was built up. That he pissed off the Ds so much was his platform.

We Are The Priests's picture

You are definitely a cynic; which is fine by me.  I'm still not 100% convinced that Mr. Trump is controlled opposition, but I'm definitely 100% convinced, and have been from the beginning, that he's not the great savior his supporters seem to believe he is.

One thing for sure, Mr. Trump is definitely a Christian Zionist and as far as I'm concerned, Zionism is code for Luciferian.

What would it take to convince you? You seem set in your ways and unable to adapt. That's how species die out.

crossroaddemon's picture

Convince me of what, exactly?

I'm getting so burned out with the non stop chronicling of bad and badder every day I don't even read the articles anymore but jump straight to the comments? Even then I only manage the page 1's but as a tip I just realized yesterday to set comment viewing options to most recent/oldest so now I may see two pages, first and last. The real pulse is not those who create the news but how people react to it. 

roadhazard's picture

I read farther in, the first page is the same guys every day. I can tell by the first sentence where a post is going, so it's like speed reading.

 Just in case you were wondering how bizarro this planet is. That team D could just come out and ask another country to do such a thing? Truely bizarro stuff. It says a lot about loyalty and the rule of law in both countries. And also about how both/all governments view the worlds peoples.

  This may be the definning moment of Demockery?

Five Eyes

Thatcher used Canadian CSE to wiretap her own Cabinet


A FORMER technician with the Canadian Communications Establishment, a top secret electronic spying agency, claimed in a book published here today that the agency was asked by Margaret Thatcher when she was prime minister to monitor the telephone and other electronic communications of two cabinet ministers.

Vilfredo Pareto's picture

That would explain the ease of monitoring anyone they want without having to ask the USA government for the info.  Just flip a switch.   


If the five eyes really are that integrated such ease of use could also incentivize recklessness.  


I waded thru a bunch of bullshit to find this nugget. Thanks.

GCHQ are the probably the dirtiest of them all. 

Plus, they've done a masterful job in the UK of keeping out of the media. But if they are, guess what, they're here to 'help protect us'. Stanrad line of bullshit. 

I reckon less than 20% of the UK has heard of them when the reality is they're probably the country's most powerful orgainsation. Probably blackmailing anyone in authority if they speak up. That's the reality of all of this folks, blackmail. 

Sandmann's picture

Mr Frost, who said he worked for Canadian intelligence from 1972-1992, told the programme the five countries involved in the Echelon global surveillance system could get around domestic laws preventing spying by asking another member nation to do it for them.

The Echelon system, which is run by the US, Canada, Britain, Australia and New Zealand, is capable of intercepting phone conversations, faxes and e-mail messages around the world for any of the five countries involved in the network.

This sounds a lot like horseshit.  The more involved in a conspiracy the harder it is to keep it quiet.  Do you really think Obama would be able to clandestinely coordinate illegal activities on US soil with a foreign spy agency without creating any damning evidence?  In addition it wasn't all that clandestine, because now "three intelligence sources" know about it.  If these were actually credible people with or without evidence, they could come forward to accuse without repercussions now that Trump is in charge.  Any credible support for this claim would be the greatest Republican PR coup since Monica Lewinsky.  And just to head it off: the idea that the Democratic conspiracy complex would assassinate or secretly retaliate against them is laughable.  Who is easier to assassinate?  Someone publicly stating an accusation with names attached on the record, or someone slipping it out secretly and hoping nobody figures out it was you?  Linda Tripp is still alive and has had no repercussions.

 Dam skippy they could. Keep in mind these are all government emploees. They sold their souls early on in taking the jobs.
