(NationalSentinel) Political Espionage: Sen. Rand Paul, who has become vocal about getting to the bottom of who leaked sensitive national security data about former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, said that someone in the Obama administration “was spying on the Trump campaign,” and because of that Flynn lost his job.
The Kentucky Republican weighed in on James Comey’s “wiretap” denials Monday afternoon, telling Fox’s Neil Cavuto that “somebody was spying on the Trump campaign” even if they didn’t use an “old-fashioned bug.” (RELATED: Comey confirmed the essence of Trump’s claim that the Obama administration was investigating him)
Per Fox News:
“Everybody admits that somebody spied on Mike Flynn, and he was part of the Trump campaign,” Paul said. “It sounds like what the president said has already been proven to be true.”
He said that the media is confused, because they think that wiretapping means placing an “old-fashioned bug” on someone’s telephone.
“If you haven’t looked recently, most of our telephones don’t have wires,” Paul said. “‘Wiretapping’ is a broad term for surveillance.”

Cavuto said that surveilling Flynn is one thing, but he pressed Paul if Trump himself was tapped.
“I think ‘wiretapping’ to Donald Trump probably meant spying. And I think ‘Donald Trump’ or the ‘campaign’ also probably meant Mike Flynn,” Paul said. “So I think really we’re arguing circles around something that most people are admitting.”
“Somebody was spying on the Trump campaign and … Mike Flynn lost his job because of an illegal felony in which somebody released the results of spying on the Trump campaign.”
We have repeatedly raised the question, Who ordered the investigation into Team Trump? We learn that bit of information, we can really get to the bottom of why the campaign’s closest advisors (and perhaps even our current president himself) were believed to be dupes of Russia, of which there has been no evidence presented as of yet.
