Conservative radio host and constitutional lawyer Mark Levin slammed the Obama administration for its politicized overreach and "police-state tactics," claiming Sunday morning evidence backing President Donald Trump's claims Obama spied on him using wiretaps "is overwhelming."
"This is not about President Trump's tweeting," Levin, told "Fox & Friends Sunday." "This is about the Obama administration spying. And the question is not whether they spied – we know they went to court twice. Who they did spy? Trump transition, Trump surrogates.
". . . Two separate sources with links to the counter intelligence community have confirmed that the FBI sought and was granted a foreign intelligence surveillance act court [order]. This is spying."
Levin said media coverage was missing the point by focusing on Trump's activities, statement and tweets, and not the unfair circumstances that led to them.
"Donald Trump is the victim," Levin told Fox News. "His campaign is the victim. His transition team is the victim. His surrogates are the victim. These are police-state tactics.
"I'm telling you, as a former chief of staff, if this has been done to Barack Obama, all hell would break loose, and it should. Barack Obama's statement is pathetic. Where does it go from here? They should release applications where they sought the warrant – the one in the summer and the one in October – so we know exactly what they were doing."
Levin called for Congressional Republicans to lead the charge in an open investigation into the Obama administration, with or without the opposition party.
"If the Democrats do not want to assist – and they won't, because I'm starting to think Chuck Schumer and the others are participating in all of this cover-up activity – then plow ahead without them," Levin told Fox News. "But this is important to the country. We cannot have a sitting presidential administration unleashing six federal agencies, intelligence and law enforcement [on an incoming administration]."
