ET: Joe Biden’s April 25 announcement that he is running for president has raised questions about what he knew about the spying on the Trump campaign as vice president under the Obama administration.
During the 2016 elections, officials within the Obama administration—including those at the Cabinet level—spied on the Trump campaign in a number of ways.
The known methods of spying include the FBI’s FISA warrant on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, the unmasking of members of the Trump campaign by Obama officials Susan Rice and Samantha Power, informant Stefan Halper, national security letters, and foreign intelligence gathering.
The spying on the Trump campaign is currently under investigation by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Attorney General William Barr has said he is personally looking into the matter as well.
“[Joe Biden] was vice president and presided over the biggest political scandal in history,” Jason Meister, an advisory board member for Trump’s 2020 campaign, told The Epoch Times.
“High ranking Obama-Biden appointees used a phony dossier … to fraudulently obtain a warrant from the FISA court to wiretap, phone-tap, and email-tap Trump and his associates who were all private citizens.”
The dossier, which played a key role in the opening of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign, was funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee. more here
