A federal study found signs that surveillance devices for intercepting cellphone calls and texts were operating near the White House and other sensitive locations in the Washington area last year.
A Department of Homeland Security program discovered evidence of the surveillance devices, called IMSI catchers, as part of federal testing last year, according to a letter from DHS to Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Oregon, on May 22. The letter didnt specify what entity operated the devices and left open the possibility that there could be alternative explanations for the suspicious cellular signals collected by the federal testing program last year.
The discovery bolsters years of independent research suggesting that foreign intelligence agencies use sophisticated interception technology to spy on officials working within the hub of federal power in the nations capital. Experts in surveillance technology say that IMSI catchers sometimes known by one popular brand name, Stingrays are a standard part of the toolkit for many foreign intelligence services, including for such geopolitical rivals as Russia and China.

Just protecting Trump, I’m sure...
Not really surprising. If you are a spy, Washington, DC is the place where you’d want to be.
I’m shocked............................no, really..................
And if you are a really, really good spy, you are in the White House!..............
Probably those wacky “FBI guys” just playing a prank on PRESIDENT Trump. Not spying. Just goofing around.
Reminds me of those two liberals with a scanner following Newt Gingrich around and recording him.
Russia - again?! The msm just cant resist.
“Stingrays are a standard part of the toolkit for many foreign intelligence services, including for such geopolitical rivals as Russia and China.”
And American police and FBI.
The Stasi existed for almost exactly 40 years. It collected between 900 million and 1 billion pages of documents.
The NSA/FBI/CIA hoover up that amount of data every two days, without a warrant. They now clearly use it to affect domestic politics and to intimidate those who dissent.
The STASI never dreamed of having the detailed information that our intelligence agencies collect.
Draw your own conclusions...but there is a word for a society like this and it ain’t “Constitutional Republic”.
The FBI and CIA are spying on President Trump — to protect him.
Sniff, sniff, sniff, yelp, yelp, yelp...
The hound dogs taking us on the the trail that’s leading closer and closer - right up to the doorstep of our Enemy in Chief, now christened our Criminal in Chief.
Do you like the sound of that Slammer, there BO?
Cue pic of Mueller driving around the WH with large antennae on his vehicle.
I might build one this weekend, looks pretty easy and I have everything I need already!!!
The President was so correct in his assessment of what Obama was up to with surveillance.
Probably Clapper and Brennan thugs.
Clapper for once told the truth.
He said that we spy on/monitor our allies, and they spy/monitor on us.

Bet it going right down the street to the Obama/Jarrett headquarters.
Ha! Ha! Ha!
