Rand Paul Claims Obama Spied on Multiple Senators

Senator Rand Paul, who two weeks ago demanded the White House and intelligence communities provide evidence whether he was under surveillance by the Obama administration, has dropped another bombshell allegation.

Paul now claims he wasn’t the only Senator to be under surveillance by the former administration.

“I know one other senator who’s already confided to me that he was surveilled by the Obama administration, including his phone calls,” Paul told Fox News.

This is the first time that Paul mentioned another senator is also concerned about the Obama administration’s surveillance.

He said if this proves to be true, it’s a much bigger story than any allegations about collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the presidential election.

“It’s about your own government spying on the opposition party,” Paul said. “That would be enormous if it’s true.”

Paul told Fox Business Network’s Charles Payne on Wednesday that he’s asked the White House and the House and Senate intelligence committees to investigate.

He said if the intelligence community is indeed being used for politics, it’s a “very, very serious crime.”

Paul first joined the ‘Obama spied on Republicans’ chorus a couple of weeks ago, following a Circa report that revealed Obama’s team sought NSA intelligence on thousands of Americans in the run-up to the 2016 election.

The Circa report lifted the curtain on Obama’s surveillance efforts, saying the administration “significantly expanded efforts to search National Security Agency intercepts for information about Americans, distributing thousands of intelligence reports across government with the unredacted names of U.S. residents during the midst of a divisive 2016 presidential election.”

It had also alleged that congressional members and their staff were “among those whose names were unmasked” in 2016 and 2017.

Paul believes, rightly so, that spying at the behest of former President Obama is a scandal on a much higher plane than any other – including the specious Trump/Russia allegations.

“It’s about your own government spying on the opposition party,” Paul said. “That would be enormous if it’s true.”

Using the intelligence community for political gain would be, Paul claims, a “very, very serious crime.”
