FBI Director, Christopher Wray was testifying before the Senate on domestic spying and government abuse of data. Sen Rand Paul then asked him if President Trump’s phone conversations are being collected in the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) database. Wray refused to answer which means they probably are.
No president should have their calls monitored by FISA without a good reason, but I’m sure the Deep Staters like Wray feel that trying to collect information on Trump they can use to remove him from office is a good enough reason. Congress really needs to rein in FISA or eliminate them if they don’t cooperate.
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) asked Director Wray if President Trump’s conversations are getting collected in the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) database and he would not answer.
“We know bad actors exist within intel community,” Senator Paul said. “REFORM NEEDED NOW” the Kentucky Senator added.
RAND PAUL: The FBI Director just testified in the US Senate. I asked him if @realDonaldTrump phone conversations are getting collected in the FISA database. He wouldn’t answer. Is NSA or FBI listening in on our President? We know bad actors exist within intel community. REFORM NEEDED NOW
“Do you think that it is possible that the President’s conversations with international leaders are in the FISA database?” Senator Paul asked Director Wray.
“I’m not sure there is anything I can speak to,” Wray responded.
Today I questioned FBI Director Wray on the domestic spying and government abuse of our data. The concern of us who want more control over what the government can do with our data is because as Madison said men are not angels. That’s why we have the Constitution. pic.twitter.com/nOmqoPp62J

If the FBI or FISA are recording the President’s conversations, we need to know that and cut their power to do that.
