Spying on Trump, Judge Napolitano, and Tucker Carlson
[Creators.com] Judge Napolitano reveals the Deep State.
In March 2017, I received a tip from a friend in the intelligence community that the British Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ — the United Kingdom's domestic and foreign spies — had been asked by the CIA to spy on candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 U.S presidential election campaign. He elaborated that Trump's claim that "someone tapped my wires" was essentially true. The tip was potentially explosive, so I ran it past two other friends in the intelligence community, and they confirmed it.

When I went public with this, all hell broke loose in my professional life. The British spies denied spying on Trump, who by now was the president of the United States. Former Obama administration folks denied asking the Brits to do this and denied that it was done.
Wait. The Government lied?
I was accused of fabricating this so as to make Trump look good. The prime minister of the U.K. had one of her deputies call my bosses at Fox and demand that I recant what I had said or be fired. Fox asked me to lay low for 10 days, which I did, but Fox backed me when I explained the verifications conducted by my sources.
And the compliant media...well, you know.
During one of my meetings with my sources, they told me that the National Security Administration, America's 60,000-person strong domestic spy apparatus, was listening to our conversations and monitoring our texts and emails.

It is utterly terrifying to realize that your daily communications are being scrutinized by the government without probable cause and without a search warrant, both of which are required by the Fourth Amendment. It gives you pause before communicating; pause that churns the stomach; pause that is profoundly un-American.

Last week, my Fox colleague Tucker Carlson had a similar experience when an NSA whistleblower revealed to him that the NSA was monitoring his communications.
Do go read the whole thing - who initiated NSA spying, the backlash from the deep state here and abroad, and the unconstitutionality of it all.

#1 "Judge" Nap is a never Trump idiot. By extension that makes him a deep state tool.

#2 Nap expected to be nominated for the SCOTUS. Quit laughing you there in the back! He's trying to piggyback on Carlson to shaking his tiny fists and yelling: "I'm Relevant!"
