Last week, President Donald Trump accused Barack Obama of wiretapping the phones at Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election. He then asked the House intel committee to look into the matter, and on Monday, they asked the White House and Department of Justice to provide the evidence they have of this by March 20.
During an appearance on Fox News this week, Judge Andrew Napolitano explained that while it’s very possible Obama wiretapped Trump, it may be very hard to prove. He explained that the president is allowed to order the surveillance of any person in the U.S., without suspicion, probable cause or a warrant, but that would leave “fingerprints.”
“Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command,” Napolitano said. “He didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI, and he didn’t use the Department of Justice.”
The judge said Obama instead used GCHQ, a British intelligence and security organization that has 24-7 access to the NSA database.
“There’s no American fingerprints on this,” Napolitano said. “What happened to the guy who ordered this? Resigned three days after Donald Trump was inaugurated.”
