Once it was discovered that Barack Obama had been running major surveillance through the National Security Agency (NSA)on citizens, Donald Trump and his team during the 2016 election.
He knew he was going down. Several reports had been discovered that the illegal surveillance had been done to try to break President Trump and Obama was accused of operating a ‘shadow government.’ Another strange thing was that the Obama family had purchased a mansion just blocks away from the White House, which is not something any other President has done.
Trey Gowdy had become suspicious of his acts and had begun his operation to stop Obama’s personal ‘shadow goverment.’ This is then when the surveillance operation was discovered. He ran in through the National Security Agency (NSA). The NSA is where Obama still has many of his cohorts, even while not in power anymore.
One of his cohorts, Reality Winner, was recently arrested for leaking some highly classified documents against Trump and possible collusion with Russia.
Congressman Trey Gowdy announced to Fox News’ Bill Hemmer that he is going to stop the NSA from running these programs.
“We’re not going to reauthorize these surveillance programs if the American people are not satisfied that their security is not going to be safeguarded.” Gowdy said.
Gowdy expressed his concern with Obama and how he had misused these programs, “This unmasking. That is a privilege to be able to request that a U.S. person’s name be unmasked.
I want to know who’s making the request [and] what is the evidentiary basis of that request?
And if it’s late in your tenure – like the day before you leave office – that should send off alarms and sirens in your head as to why that person did it.”
