The Worse than Watergate wiretapping scandal just got a whole lot more more serious for Barack Obama. Judge Napolitano told Fox Business on Monday that Justice Scalia, before his death, told him that “serial wiretapper” Obama was illegally “surveilling the Supreme Court.”
Responding to the Fox host Maria Bartiromo’s claim that these are “very strong allegations,” Judge Napolitano rolled his eyes and said “Well they are most likely true,” before launching into his scathing assessment of the Obama administration’s record.
Judge Napolitano said: “Justice Scalia told me that he often thought the court was being surveilled. And he told me that probably four or five years ago.”

“Surveillance, acquisition of information, unmasking, accessing information.”
Bartiromo asked Judge Napolitano, “Why would the Obama information, using government resources, spy on anyone running against Hillary Clinton? That is just wrong.”
Napolitano said, “You are exactly correct. It is the use to which the raw intelligence data can be put that makes it criminal.”
“If they had to unmask Senator Paul’s name to reveal a conversation he was having with a foreign agent and the foreign agent was harmful to the United States they can do that. That’s not what he’s talking about. They’re talking about unmasking him when he’s having a conversation with his campaign manager when he’s running in the Republican primary.“
“The use of intelligence data for political purposes is a felony.”
Maria Bartiromo: “So if another Senator comes forward with the same story – ‘I was surveilled’ – could Obama be called to testify on this?”
Napolitano replied: “Anybody who was involved in the receipt or use of the information once unmasked could be called. The FBI should be able – because you leave electronic fingerprints when you do unmasking – find out who did the unmasking in Senator Paul’s case, and then trace where that information went and who used it. Did it end up in the West Wing, did it end up in the Oval Office, did it end up in the hands of other political opponents?
Obama took the already bloated, over-empowered federal government and used it as a weapon against countless American citizens. Congress was spied on and the IRS was targeted Conservative non-profits. Considering what we know about Obama’s actions, if the Supreme Court was not spied on they would be the odd ones out.
