Sen. 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.
