James Comey Used Secret Program to Obtain Warrants on Trump Campaign Without Judge Approval

The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena — officials said. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said. That has become a politically contentious point, with Mr. Trump’s allies questioning whether the F.B.I. was spying on the Trump campaign or trying to entrap campaign officials.

Ryan Saveedra of the Daily Wire notes that so-called national security letters “are secret orders that the FBI uses on a regular basis to obtain sensitive electronic data and phone records.” Citing a report from The Intercept, Saveedra highlights that they are used to circumvent the judicial system, obtaining private information without a judge-issued warrant.

This is big. The more we learn about the origins of the FBI investigation into the Trump campaign, the more we learn that the whole thing was rigged against Trump from the get-go. Rep. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, predicts that in the end, the FBI’s reputation will be in tatters once the full truth comes out.

And all that makes it more astounding that Trump was able to defeat Hillary Clinton and become the 45th president of the United States.
