I seldom ask you to devote a lengthy period of time to anything I write. I had never heard of William E. Binney before. He was a 30 year veteran of the NSA. What he has to say in this video is truly terrifying. If you think the “deep state” is a myth or conspiracy theory, the only hope that you are correct is that Mr. Binney is a liar and totally insane.
The video is long and extremely troubling, but the segment that made my heart skip a beat was about the “two hops” principle of NSA surveillance. I had never heard of this before and find it to be terrifying on a personal level. What this basically means is that once the FBI was given a FISC warrant to surveil Carter Page (the Trump campaign consultant), they were allowed to go “two hops” from him during the surveillance. That means that if Mr. Page calls Mr. Manafort (first hop and the Campaign Chairman), they also can surveil Mr. Manafort. If Mr. Manfort calls Mr. Trump (second hop) they also can surveil the at-that-time Republican candidate for president.
I strongly recommend you take the time to view this video in its entirety. But at the very least please go to 11:15 on the video and spend 5 minutes watching from that point. I assure you, you will end up watching every second.
As Mr. Binney points out, if the “first hop” is to Experian or, God forbid, Google, you are almost certainly available to be surveilled under the Carter Page warrant.
The “parallel construction” aspect of NSA surveillance will also give you the shivers!
And thanks to Liberty Volunteers for sending this to me.
