Did Barack Obama illegally spy on Donald Trump?
Trump leveled the shocking allegations and the media immediately erupted in fury.
But one judge says he has proof Obama engaged in an illegal operation to spy on Trump during the campaign.
Appearing on Fox and Friends, Judge Andrew Napolitano claimed three intelligence sources informed him that Obama used the British spy agency GCHQ to intercept communications involving Trump campaign advisors.
“Fox News Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano claimed, “three intelligence sources,” say President Obama looked to British spy agency GCHQ to obtain transcripts of conversations involving President Donald Trump on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday.
Napolitano said, “[T]hree intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command. He didn’t use the NSA. He didn’t use the CIA. He didn’t use the FBI, and he didn’t use Department of Justice. He used GCHQ. What the heck is GCHQ? That’s the initials for the British spying agency. They have 24/7 access to the NSA database. So by simply having two people go to them saying, ‘President Obama needs transcripts of conversations involving candidate Trump, conversations involving president-elect Trump,’ he’s able to get it, and there’s no American fingerprints on this.”

This fits with what former CIA agent Larry Johnson wrote on his blog.
Johnson stated that the right question to ask regarding Trump’s wiretapping claim should’ve been whether Obama received transcripts of intercepted communications from the British.
“Neither Barack Obama nor anyone at the “WHITE HOUSE” ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. That is true. Ask a different question and ask it under oath. In fact, ask several questions:
Was Barack Obama ever informed that senior leaders of his Intelligence Community had received information collected by British intelligence sources that provided information on Donald Trump and members of his campaign team?
Did Barack Obama give the green light for this material to be used in ways that fall outside the legal boundaries?
Did Barack Obama or any members of his senior team ever discuss how to take steps to prevent Donald Trump from taking the oath of office?
If these questions are asked and asked under oath, there is a very good chance that the answer to each would be yes.”
Will further proof emerge to implicate Obama in an international conspiracy to spy on Trump?
