Rand-PaulSen. Rand Paul has issued formal requests with the White House and the U.S. intelligence community to see if he was ever targeted for surveillance by the Obama administration.

Charges that former President Barack Obama may have politicized intelligence agencies was in the news again on Friday when Mr. Paul announced a personal inquiry into the matter. The Republican gave an exclusive interview with Breitbart News and informed his 1.2 million Twitter followers of his concerns.

“I have formally requested from the WH and the Intel Committees info on whether I was surveilled by Obama admin and or the Intel community,” the senator tweeted. “Did the Obama admin use warrantless ‘wiretapping’ on other candidates besides @realDonaldTrump? Did the Obama admin go after presidential candidates, members of Congress, journalists, clergy, lawyers, fed judges?”

Mr. Paul, a long-time critic of intelligence programs that capture metadata on innocent Americans, told Breitbart that too many individuals have approached him with the allegations.

Former National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice acknowledged in April that Mr. Trump’s associates were “unmasked,” but denied any wrongdoing.

    Regarding Rand Paul’s suspicion that obamA “might have been” targeting him (and/or other conservatives) for surveillance, there’s a persistent rumor going around that the Pope is Catholic. Just a wacky conspiracy theory, of course. Am I the Lone Ranger here, or is there anyone else who seems to detect a faint correlation between the accuracy of a conspiracy theory and the degree of rage that it elicits from the conspirators?

    People need to go to jail for this sort of political persecution in the form of surveillance.

      Thinly veiled blackmail!

    I think every politician not part of the Obama administration needs to do the same thing. How about checking to see if Lois Lerner had the IRS looking into private citizen tax records also. Richard Nixon did it and that is why he was forced to resign, Lerner took the fifth twenty seven times when asked if she was involved with the surveillance of tax information for conservative organization, Why would she have stopped there? If info can be found on Obolowhard, even though he is out of office, he still needs to be punished for overstepping his authority. A crime of that nature, one of governments tyranny has no statute of limitations.

      Right on, maxx!

    Seems like the Big Zero was always on the cutting edge of trends in rap music and pop culture with his tax money blowing White House soirees and private performances by his Hollywood and pop artist sycophants. All of this while he was spying on Americans, and perfecting his political police state. Now it’s time for him to learn to do a new thing: “Do the Perp Walk Obama!” For the first time ever he’ll get applause from us, the conservative crowd!

  • Peter Smith says:

    Senator Paul, do you actually think you’ll get a straight, truthful response from the Obama administration? Or any of the Obama sycophants still in their offices because President Trump has not removed them as of yet? The swamp still has a whole lot of fetid water to get rid of …..

      I agree with you – President Trump has to replace ALL obama (and clinton, maybe even bush) appointees NOW. They are all traitors and need to be replaced with faithful Americans.

      1. Peter Smith says:

        Indeed “goldie”. But I believe Obama got rid of any Bush appointees first and foremost. Most of those probably tendered resignations prior to the swearing in ceremony, as is tradition. The incoming president then has the right to accept the resignation or ask the person to remain is service. Funny how the Obama personnel, for the most part, failed to do this …….

  • CCblogging says:

    Barack Obama is guilty of using government agencies as a hammer over any opposing factions. Obama should have been charged with this already.

    Hope Paul is successful.
    Hope he finds that Ovomit broke the law.
    Then I hope he (personally) sues pig ears.
    Then I hope Odumbo goes to Sing Sing.

      AND, if he can establish legally admissible ties to involvement of soro$$$$$$ and $ON$ in the whole mess, so much the better. As evil as obamA IS, just remember: he is only a SURROGATE or PROXY for soro$$$$$$, whose legacy of deceit and treason will continue through hi$ $ON$. If the latter fail to be eliminated, consider the swamp UNDRAINED.

  • McFerguson says:

    Of course Obozo politicized the intelligence agencies. Why wouldn’t he? He politicized the IRS, the EPA, the Justice Department and everything else he touched. His extreme left wing ideology dominated his every move. He tried to diminish the political, cultural and military power of the U.S. by bypassing congress in getting us tied to the Paris Climate Warming hoax, the Iranian agreement to delay their Nuclear bomb making capability rather than insisting the program be dismantled, and played footsie with the United Nations in trying to lessen the sovereignty of this nation. His presidency was a total sham and a boon to radical Islamic extremists all over the globe!
