In the end, it's not a question of were we surveilled, it's a question of who reveals the contents of that surveillance to whom, and when and why. what should concern all of us if we are interested in living a free, independent life is who leaked the various surveillances that did or did not take place. Those people MUST be punished.
At the very time it appears the Obama Justice Department was seeking to surveil Trump and/or his associates on the pretext that they were Russian agents, the Obama Justice Department was also actively undermining and ultimately closing without charges the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton despite significant evidence of felony misconduct that threatened national security. This appears to be extraordinary, politically motivated abuse of presidential power.
