It seems like bad news keeps coming for Former President Barack Obama. On Friday, the Judicial Watch filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests with the NSA, FBI, and CIA to determine which Obama hack ordered General Flynn’s phone calls be wiretapped, Truth Monitor reports.
According to Breitbart, the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch is planning to sue NSA, FBI, and CIA if they don’t hand over the records pertaining to these wiretapping. The group filed the FOIA requests several weeks ago, and they will file lawsuits next week if they do not get the records by then.
Judicial Watch is aiming to find out whether there was ever a warrant allowing the U.S. government to wiretap former National Security Advisors’ phone calls, and if so, who requested it and why. Chris Farrell, the group’s Director of Investigations and Research said that if anybody had a warrant, in 99% of the time there is an affidavit attached to the warrant, a sworn declaration normally by a law enforcement officer or senior official.
The leaks led to General Flynn’s resignation because they contradicted public assertions by Vice President Michael Pence that Flynn had never discussed sanctions with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Devin Nunes, the White House Intelligence Committee Chairman said that this kind of wiretapping would only be legal if intelligence agencies obtained a warrant or happened upon the conversation while investigating a foreign official, but he also added that it’s obvious that no such warrant was obtained.
Nunes said that he is pretty sure that the FBI didn’t have a warrant on Michael Flynn. In order to listen to an American’s phone call, they would have to go to a court and there would be paperwork there.
Judicial Watch’s Director of Investigations and Research said that he thinks embedded political operatives within the various agencies and departments are likely responsible for the leaked Flynn call.
