‘Fix FISA now’: Rand Paul doubts FBI left Obama in the dark about spying on Trump campaign

by Dominick Mastrangelo | Washington Examiner  |  Published on May 13, 2020

Sen. Rand Paul claimed it is highly unlikely former President Barack Obama was unaware of the FISA Court abuses allegedly committed by members of his administration.

“You are the president of the US, and you’re allowing your intelligence community to spy on your political opponents?” Paul asked Tuesday on Twitter. “I’d be surprised if President Obama didn’t know about the abuses that occurred against @realDonaldTrump! We need to fix FISA now so it never happens again!”

The U.S. intelligence community under Obama has come under scrutiny in recent days, following the Justice Department’s decision to drop charges of lying to federal investigators against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

Flynn, President Trump’s former head of intelligence, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia.
