FBI Director Wray says surveillance not the same as ’spying’

FBI Director Christopher Wray told a Senate panel Tuesday that the bureau is ’working to help’ AG Barr as he reviews the origins of the Russia investigation. Wray distanced himself from Barr’s use of the phrase ’spying’ at a separate hearing last month, adding further that he believes that the FBI is engaged in investigative activity and as part of that activity includes surveillance activity.

The head of a domestic spy agency is uncomfortable with the term "spying". Imagine my shock.

It's not illegal because Bush made it legal and Obama massively expanded it. Another reminder the US spy agencies like the CIA and NSA have the ability to access any device connected to the internet and use their mics, cameras, accounts, anything related to that device. So yes they probably did.

He's uncomfortable because it's a pejorative term for what the FBI was doing. The problem is that the evidence that was used to obtain the FISA warrant to spy on Trump and Co. came from the Clinton campaign. If the shoe were on the other foot that would be considered highly irregular as well probably illegal.
