NSA vet backs Trump up on wiretapping and monitoring claims

Bill Binney, a 36-year veteran of the National Security Agency, told Fox Business Monday that “President Donald Trump is ‘absolutely right’ to claim he was wiretapped and monitored.”

“I think the president is absolutely right,” Binney said, “His phone calls, everything he did electronically, was being monitored,”

Binney resigned from the NSA shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and “became a whistleblower after discovering that elements of a data-monitoring program he had helped develop — nicknamed ThinThread — were being used to spy on Americans.”
