Documents show six methods Obama admin spied on the Trump campaign

From The Washington Times:

Based on government documents, here are six instances of Obama administration spying on the Trump campaign or team, during and after the Nov. 8 election.

⦁ The FBI hired confidential human source Stefan Halper to spy on campaign volunteers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos in 2016. Mr. Halper wore a wire. Neither man incriminated himself in any Kremlin election interference.

⦁ The FBI misled judges to win four wiretap warrants on Mr. Page. The Justice Department inspector general said agents, in sworn affidavits, supplied inaccurate information and withheld favorable evidence, such as Mr. Page denying any criminality to Mr. Halper.

⦁ The FBI put surveillance teams in 2016 on retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a campaign adviser, transition official and, briefly, White House national security adviser, a declassified bureau document showed.

⦁ The government bugged Flynn’s calls with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the transition. The FBI used the call transcripts to target the former Defense Intelligence Agency director even after officially clearing him of Russia collusion.

⦁ A number of Obama officials, as they were leaving their posts, requested that Flynn’s name be unmasked from top secret National Security Agency reports on communication intercepts. Trump supporters say there was no reason for this unmasking so late in Mr. Obama’s term.
