Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin gave an interview on Fox News’ Fox and Friends Weekend Sunday morning in which he laid out the case against the Obama administration use of “police state tactics” against President Donald Trump.
“The evidence is overwhelming,” Levin said. Using public records and mainstream media reporting, he showed how the Obama administration obtained a FISA court warrant to surveil Donald Trump’s presidential campaign last year. The question is, to what extent did the Obama administration spy on Donald Trump’s campaign?
And how much did President Obama know?
Levin took pains to reiterate that the evidence of spying by the Obama administration is not his own speculation. The mainstream media has presented the case in the course of a year of reports on the Obama administration. Levin just connected the dots.
Going forward, the Trump administration ought to pursue the release of the Obama administration’s FISA court warrants and the documents regarding the application for those warrants. A Congressional investigation into the extent of the spying on Trump’s campaign is necessary, and Congress should request copies of President Obama’s daily intelligence briefings for the duration of the surveillance on Donald Trump’s campaign.
As for President Trump? He should appoint a Deputy Attorney General to investigate from the executive branch.
It’s time to get to the bottom of this.
