From CBS News here:
Chaffetz confirmed that wiretapping requires obtaining a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrant in court and that there would be a “paper trail” if anything did occur. He also said that the president also has the power to declassify information about a FISA order.
All right then, President Orange Hump. Get off the fucking Twatter and declassify the FISA order and let’s get it on.
Lest anybody get their undies in a bunch J. Edgar Hoover illegally tapped phones for almost the whole run of his career at the FBI and he did it with no supervision or paper trail.
It is possible somebody tapped this hump without a court order but it’s a pretty low probability event.
It is interesting that nobody is talking about how tapping phones and putting people under surveillance is pretty undemocratic and has always been that. We could actually get on with shit that actually matters if the power to tap phones and put people under surveillance was drastically restricted.
