Former Dem Rep was Wiretapped in 2011: ‘If They Can do That to a Member of Congress, They Can Certainly do it to a Presidential Candidate’ [VIDEO]

Former Ohio Democratic Congressman and two-time presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich said that he was wiretapped in 2011. It was his congressional office phone that had been bugged, and a conversation he had with a foreign leader was recorded.

He said he had proof that he was wiretapped, because the Washington Times let him listen to the recorded conversation they had been provided with. He didn’t even find out that he had been wiretapped until two years after he left office.wiretapped

He recalled to Fox News’s Shannon Bream that his conversation to this particular foreign leader was “approved and cleared” by House attorneys who had advised him that it was his Constitutional right, yet “someone had intercepted it.”

Kucinich is no fan of the President, but in the case of Trump’s wiretapping allegation against the previous administration, he said that that could certainly happen, since it happened to him as a congressman. He cautioned about this “brave new world”: “Members of Congress ought to be aware that my experience was that my phone wasn’t safe in a Congressional office.”

“If they can do that to a member of congress, they can certainly do it to a presidential candidate, and they can do it to private citizens as well,” Kucinich told the Fox News host.
