“There is no spying on Americans, we don’t have a domestic spying program,” former President Barack Obama said in 2013, and yet, that’s exactly what he did.
The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures. It requires governmental searches and seizures to be conducted only upon issuance of a warrant, judicially sanctioned by probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, particularly describing the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized.
It is part of the Bill of Rights and was adopted in response to the abuse of the writ of assistance, a type of general search warrant issued by the British government and a major source of tension in pre-Revolutionary America.
The Fourth Amendment was introduced in Congress in 1789 by James Madison, along with the other amendments in the Bill of Rights, in response to Anti-Federalist objections to the new Constitution.
Congress submitted the amendment to the states on September 28, 1789. By December 15, 1791, the necessary three-fourths of the states had ratified it. On March 1, 1792, Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson announced the adoption of the amendment.
“There is no spying on Americans, we don’t have a domestic spying program,” Obama told Jay Leno, in 2013.
Believe it or not, key Obama spying scandal documents are over at the Obama presidential library. We just learned that from the National Security Council, who told us in response to our request for documents about Susan Rice’s unmasking of the Trump team, the DNC hacking, and the Russia story…they told us that they had moved those documents over to the Obama presidential library, Judaical Watch reports.
Well, we’re considering our legal options to get them, and I suggest a special council and Congress consider its legal options and get those documents too.
