Former members of the ‘Deep State,’ have formed a supergroup to expose illegal government surveillance and support President Donald Trump. The group, led by William Binney, who was part of an ‘elite NSA team which built an intelligence-gathering system to collect data on terrorism threats,’ is made up of former Justice Department, FBI, and intelligence community officials that call themselves ‘JTFMAGA.’

Below is a partial transcript of OAN’s report with Binney.
BINNEY:“If you really want to get away from their surveillance, you basically have to stop using any electronic device, even your credit card. They know where you are, what you bought and fundamentally have a good idea when you left.
OAN: “Binney said another abuse is the practice of Parallel Construction, where an intelligence agency can comb through an individual’s life until they find something illegal. Because this search is without a warrant, it is up to the police to contrive an investigation where they look for what they already have.”
BINNEY: “They pass that information to state and local police for them to go arrest those people and when they do that, they have another set of rules that come down from the DOJ that they can’t talk about the source of information that allowed them to direct the police to do the arrest.”
OAN: “Binney said when it came to the Obama administration’s surveillance of the Trump campaign, the reason the FBI only needed FISA warrants on two people, Carter Page and Paul Manafort, is that President Barack Obama signed an order making two-hop surveillance the default. Two-hops mean that surveillance can start with Paul Manafort and then go one hop more to everyone he had contact with. The second hop means the government can also monitor everyone those people had contact with. Binney said JTFMAGA is coming together now to encourage other members of the Deep State to come forward and expose more abuses of the NSA surveillance program and to support President Donald Trump.”
BINNEY: “[Trump] is the best opportunity to have this changed.”
OAN: “Binney and his fellow members of JTFMAGA say they are motivated by the conduct of the FBI and other government agencies during the 2016 election cycle. They don’t deny they are ‘Deep-Staters,’ but they would say they are ‘Deep-Staters,’ wearing the white hats.’
