The genuine magnitude of the FBI spying on the Trump campaign (or Adam Schiffs getting ahold of the phone records of journalists and fellow representatives) was far greater than most people realize, reading or hearing about a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page. Many people naturally presume that an operation to trample on the rights of one man even an Annapolis graduate who served as a source for the CIA was bad, but not a major spying operation. After all, Page was not a top-level campaign advisor but an unpaid volunteer. So, whats the big deal?
Believe it or now, intelligence agencies can use one legal wiretap to monitor as many as 25,000 people for which there was no wiretap justification.
Through a single warrant, government agents can capture phone calls, texts, emails and bank records from people two hops away. That means all of the suspected spys direct contacts one hop and everybody who contacts those people or even visits their Facebook pages or websitestwo hops.
Sidney Powell (former prosecutor and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynns attorney): And what most people dont understand is, they dont just get everything they want against Carter Page, they get everything they want against every person who communicated with Carter Page, and against every person who communicated with that person. So it goes out whats called two hops.
Obama official Samantha Powers name was on hundreds of attempts to reveal the identities of Americans caught up in secretly-gathered intelligence. Obama adviser Susan Rice also took part. . Sally Yates and James Clapper admit having reviewed intel gathered on US political figures.
If you are a target, Big Brother is watching not just you but everyone you are in contact with, and everyone they are in contact with.
