NSA Whistleblower Confirms Intelligence Community Is ‘Absolutely’ Tapping Trump’s Calls

Whistleblower Says NSA Is Monitoring Trump’s Calls

Wednesday afternoon Breitbart released a report in which William Binney, a former highly placed NSA official turned whistleblower, confirmed that the NSA is spying of President Trump. Binney was a key component to building the NSA’s surveillance program before resigning from the agency in 2001 after over 30 years of service.

From Breitbart:

Asked whether he believes the NSA is tapping Trump, Binney replied: “Absolutely. How did they get the phone call between the president and the president of Australia? Or the one that he made with Mexico? Those are not targeted foreigners.”

Binney further contended the NSA may have been behind a data leak that might have revealed that Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security adviser, allegedly misled Vice President Mike Pence and other Trump administration officials about the contents of his phone calls with Russia’s ambassador to Washington.

Binney made comments in regard to former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s resignation and President Trump’s predicament. Binney’s comments were made while speaking to Breitbart’s Aaron Klein on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and Philadelphia’s NewsTalk 990 AM.

Transcripts on comments that Binney made were provided from Breitbart.

Binney’s comments on Mike Flynn and the NSA:

If they weren’t behind it, they certainly had the data. Now the difference here is that FBI and CIA have direct access inside the NSA databases. So, they may be able to go directly in there and see that material there. And NSA doesn’t monitor that. They don’t even monitor their own people going into databases.

So, they don’t monitor what CIA and FBI do. And there’s no oversight or attempted oversight by any of the committees or even the FISA court. So, any way you look at it, ultimately the NSA is responsible because they are doing the collection on everybody inside the United States. Phone calls. Emails. All of that stuff.

Binney’s comments on what Trump needs to do to fix the problem:

He can order that they put a filter on the front end of all their collection that eliminates any U.S. citizens anywhere in the world unless they have a warrant for it. If they don’t, then he has to put people in jail if they violated.

So, I mean, that’s the way to do it. The other way is to cut their budget. I mean they are given too much money anyway. When they are given too much money, they get to do wild and crazy things. And this is wild and crazy. Violations of the Constitution’s 4th, 5th, and 6th amendments.

On Wednesday morning President Trump communicated his thoughts on the recent intelligence leaks through Twitter.
