N SA Whistleblower Backs Trump Up on Wiretap Claims .


President Donald Trump is "absolutely right" to claim he was wiretapped and monitored, a former NSA official claimed Monday, adding that the administration risks falling victim to further leaks if it continues to run afoul of the intelligence community.

"I think the president is absolutely right. His phone calls, everything he did electronically, was being monitored," Bill Binney, a 36-year veteran of the National Security Agency who resigned in protest from the organization in 2001, told Fox Business on Monday.

Everyone's conversations are being monitored and stored, Binney said.

And theres the key statement in the last sentence: EVERYONE'S communications and being stored and monitored.

As I pointed out in an earlier thread, Wire-tapping warrant psyop. All of our communications are already being recorded, all of our communications are already being illegally monitored and stored.

He goes on to say that Obama may not have ordered the wiretap but thats irrelevant as the FISA courts have become obsolete since the illegal warrant-less spying is done without any court oversight.

Actually, since that is what Trump's claim is, it is not irrelevant.

What is actually irrelevant is the claim of someone who left the NSA 16 years ago.

Congress could easily pass a law making that illegal. Why don't they?

Didn't Billy Binney resign from the NSA after 911?

Is he still privy to the info to make such a call?




Binney resigned from the NSA following the tragic events of 9/11 and “became a whistleblower after discovering that elements of a data-monitoring program he had helped develop — nicknamed ThinThread — were being used to spy on Americans,” PBS reported.

Despite saying that he wants to expand the surveillance state, I dont think Trump actually realizes the scope of spying that is being conducted on the American people.

I hope that this will serve as a rude awakening and change his outlook.

Regardless of how many years have passed since he was employed by the NSA, the information is accurate.

My title was almost verbatim to language used in the article.

Thank you.

Confirming the suspicion. More confirmation coming.

This guy resigned a full 8 years before Obama's inauguration, and was only giving his opinion. No need for sensationalist title.

I agree that Trump is probably quite ignorant about the scope of NSA collection of metadata or what that even means.

If only he sat around all day searching Google his entire life, he might know something about metadata and NSA collections. He's so stupid.

Really.
He doesn't know about Snowden? I had no idea of the depth of his ignorance.

Well, you know. The information he stole. About the NSA's widescale gathering of metadata. The stuff the guy in the OP is talking about.

I've heard tonnes about Snowden. I watched the movie. But I am quite ignorant about the scope of NSA collection of metadata or what that even means, unfortunately. I would probably also use the now seemingly archaic word "wiretapping".

Here, let's try a different source.

Huh.
Seems an oddly ignorant position for someone as active on ATS as you are. But then, you aren't the leader of our nation.

That seems to be about the Steele "dossier." Not about Obama tapping Trump's phone.

Please read the original post link sourced to a senator in Iowa, it shows how the fbi was working for obamas political gains, and lends insight as to why comey dropped the hillary email case. Politics and law enforcement are two different animals, but not in this [url=http://www.grassley.senate.gov/news/news-releases/fbi-plan-pay-ex-spy-trump-intel-during-campaign-sparks-questions-obama-admin%E2%80%99s]case.[/u rl]

The link isn't broken in my above post like it's trying to be here.

No. It is about a letter from Grassley to Comey asking for clarifications about something that had been published in the Washington Post. Something about the Steele "dossier."
