WHOA! Rand Paul Takes Obama Wiretapping Story to Whole New Level

Friday Senator Rand Paul stated he has formally requested information from the White House and Intelligence Committee if the Obama Admin. ever surveilled him.

Via Twitter: “I have formally requested from the WH and the Intel Committees info on whether I was surveilled by Obama admin and or the Intel community!”

He also asked:“Did the Obama admin go after presidential candidates, members of Congress, journalists, clergy, lawyers, fed judges?”

In another tweet: “Did the Obama admin use warrantless ‘wiretapping’ on other candidates besides @realDonaldTrump?”

Back in March Trump tweeted that the Obama admin wire tapped his residence at the Trump Tower.

Trump also linked Obama to Attorney General Jeff Sessions's meetings last year with Russia's US ambassador

President Donald Trump has accused Barack Obama of tapping his phones at Trump Tower in a flurry of tweets Saturday morning

Since then it’s been revealed Loretta Lynch, Obama’s AG, signed off on all the wiretapping applications:

According to ABC News:

More than a thousand applications for electronic surveillance, all signed by the attorney general,are submitted each year, and the vast majority are approved. From 2009 to 2015, for example, more than 10,700 applications for electronic surveillance were submitted, and only one was denied in its entirety, according to annual reports sent to Congress. Another one was denied in part, and 17 were withdrawn by the government.

According to ABC, all applications to the FISA Court were signed off on by the Attorney General and therefore if any applications were processed in the past year, they were signed off on by Loretta Lynch.  This means that Lynch signed off on any requests for wire tapping President Donald Trump during the Presidential race.   This is disheartening knowing that she released a video over the weekend calling for the need for more marching, blood and death on the streets.
