During the 2016 elections, officials in the #Obama admin, including cabinet-level officials, extensively spied on the campaign of then-candidate Trump.

So far, at least 5 different ways officials spied on the Trump campaign have been uncovered. (Thread 👇)theepochtimes.com/the-five-metho…
1. National Security Letters

@FBI, at the time headed by Director @Comey and Deputy Director #McCabe, used counterintelligence tools known as #NationalSecurity letters to spy on the Trump campaign.
2. FISA Warrant

The #FBI and #DOJ obtained a #FISA spy warrant on #CarterPage, a volunteer adviser to the Trump campaign. Under the so-called “two-hop” rule, the FISA warrant could have been used to spy on anyone with two layers of separation from Page himself.
3. Unmasking

Top #Obama officials made hundreds of so-called unmasking requests for the identities of members of the Trump campaign in intelligence reports.

Unmasking is requesting an intelligence agency, usually @NSAGov, unmask the name of a US citizen.
4. Undercover Informant

@FBI used an undercover agent to infiltrate the Trump campaign.

Stefan Halper, a @Cambridge_Uni professor with ties to the @CIA and British intelligence agency #MI6, reached out to #CarterPage, @GeorgePapa19, and Sam Clovis.
5. Foreign Intelligence

British Intelligence agency @GCHQ provided officials within @CIA, both members of the #FiveEyes intelligence alliance, info on the Trump campaign as early as late 2015.

That GCHQ provided Brennan with the info on the Trump campaign is highly unusual.
There have also been direct ties between the spying and the campaign of then-Democratic presidential candidate @HillaryClinton.

@FBI and #DOJ relied heavily on unverified allegations contained in the so-called #SteeleDossier, paid for by the #Clinton Campaign and @DNC.
