It is pretty clear that the government was keeping tabs on the Trump campaign during the election season in some capacity.
Whether Obama directed it or knew about it can be argued all day long.
There are enough pieces there to make a reasonable conclusion that something fishy is going on.
It is definitely a fact that Mike Flynn was being spied on in one way or another. Then the information was leaked by someone in government. Which should concern everyone.
Now, some more news is breaking about Trump and government surveillance.

From Washington Examiner:
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said Wednesday that new intelligence reports show that some conversations involving members of President Trump’s transition team were collected by intelligence officials, but said those conversations appeared to be collected “legally” in the course of “normal, foreign surveillance.”
He said he was surprised and “alarmed” by the new discovery. But he also said he doesn’t have enough information to say whether any intelligence was collected on Trump or his team beyond routine foreign surveillance.
Interesting how we start to slowly learn more and more information on this one…
Is this really what the Democrats want? Government surveillance of presidential candidates?
It doesn’t really matter if this was legal or not. Why was it being done? Do we really trust the supremely corrupt and scandal-ridden Obama Administration on this one?
There is more going on than meets the eye here. No question.
From Fox News:
House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said this produced “dozens” of reports which eventually unmasked several individuals’ identities and were “widely disseminated.”
The revelations could at least partially back up some allegations made by Trump earlier this month, in which he tweeted that former President Barack Obama had “wiretapped” him, though top lawmakers have sharply disputed those claims.
