As New Attention Focuses On Supreme Court, Questions Arise About Obama’s Wiretapping Of Former Justice Scalia
President Obama out and out abused his power as President of the United States.
If anyone thinks that Donald Trump and the Trump campaign were the only entities that he had people spy on while he was in office you’d better think again.
Now that President Trump has selected DC Circuit Judge, Brett Kavanaugh, to the Supreme Court in response to Justice Anthony Kennedy’s resignation, some people are still asking questions about the strange circumstances that surrounded the late Justice Scalia’s last year on the court.
Much consideration and many questions have come into account after Judge Andrew Napolitano’s live interview with FOX news.
Judge Scalia has been gone for over 2 years, however, Judge Napolitano and Judge Scalia were very close friends.
Recently, Napolitano felt he has the responsibility to reveal important information about his friend on live television.
Judge Napolitano stated clearly, “Judge Scalia told him that he was under surveillance of the Obama’s administration. Scalia didn’t like that and probably other members from the Supreme Court had been under surveillance by the intelligence agencies under Obama.”
According to conservativetribune, Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano just made a stunning claim about the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and President Barack Obama.
In a segment this week on the Fox News Business Network’s “Mornings With Maria,” Napolitano said he was told by Scalia that Scalia thought the Supreme Court was under surveillance by the administration of former President Barack Obama.
“Justice Scalia told me he often thought the court was being surveilled, and he told me that probably four or five years ago,” Napolitano said in the clip shown below.
That’s huge for a couple of reasons.
First of all, if that claim is true, it’s a gross overreach of the executive branch into the judicial branch, to say the least. But much, much more than that, think of the massive rulings that were made over the course of the Obama presidency:
Two crucial Obamacare rulings. Gay marriage legalized nationwide — one of the most controversial rulings in recent memory. And if Obama’s White House really did have the Supreme Court under surveillance, Obama could have been inappropriately informed about all of it.
And, as the judge pointed out in the segment, “the use of intelligence data for political purposes is a felony.”
Let’s not forget that President Donald Trump had also made similar accusations against the Obama administration not long ago.
