Fake news outlets unconcerned with illegal dragnet surveillance under Obama.
*Benjamin Knight editor’s note: As President Trump is inundated with negative press for unconfirmed and unsourced reports on his alleged “connection” to Russia, the corporate leftist media is totally ignoring the unconstitutional dragnet surveillance programs advanced by former President Barack Obama. The deep state under his administration routinely infringed on the Fourth Amendment privacy rights of American citizens and leftists don’t seem to care.
Newsbusters’ Nicholas Fondacaro has more below on the Obama spy programs, a measure the former president claimed he wouldn’t support before getting elected. I guess that was another lie.
(Newsbusters) All of the negative news about President Donald Trump provided a convenient smokescreen to obscure a story highly damaging to former President Barack Obama on Wednesday. As first reported by Circa News, “The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall.” As would be expected, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) completely omitted from their evening broadcasts.
“More than one in 20 internet searches conducted by the National Security Agency, involving Americans, during the Obama administration violated constitutional privacy protections,” announced Fox News’ Bret Baier near the top of Special Report. “And that practice went on for years. Not only that. But the Obama administration was harshly rebuked by the FISA court for doing it.”
