US Senator Demands Public Release of FISA Court Warrant Request from Alleged Obama Surveillance of Trump Tower

Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE), delivered a statement on Saturday concerning the accusations President Trump posted to Twitter that President Barack Obama authorized wiretaps on Trump’s campaign during the recent election.

The Senator also noted that Obama’s spokesman said the accusations are false.

“The President today made some very serious allegations, and the informed citizens that a republic requires deserve more information,” Sasse wrote in his statement.

“If there were wiretaps of then-candidate Trump’s organization or campaign, then it was either with FISA Court authorization or without such authorization,” Sasse continued.

But the Nebraska Senator continued on a grave note, saying, “If without, the President should explain what sort of wiretap it was and how he knows this. It is possible that he was illegally tapped.”

Sasse then added that if the allegations were true, then there will be evidence in FISA court records.

“On the other hand,” he wrote, “if it was with a legal FISA Court order, then an application for surveillance exists that the Court found credible. The President should ask that this full application regarding surveillance of foreign operatives or operations be made available, ideally to the full public, and at a bare minimum to the U.S. Senate.”

Sasse ended with a warning to President Trump.

“We are in the midst of a civilization-warping crisis of public trust, and the President’s allegations today demand the thorough and dispassionate attention of serious patriots. A quest for the full truth, rather than knee-jerk partisanship, must be our guide if we are going to rebuild civic trust and health.”

    Thank You senator Sassee, the United States Congress and the American people need the truth to build trust. Trust was given in the past and now it must be re-earned. God Bless Truth and this Great United States!
