A secret camera captured a former CIA contractor divulging details about a spying operation that targeted former President Donald Trump, his ex-wife, and dozens of people working on his campaign several years ago.

The operation allegedly began in March 2016. In the video, which was posted by fired Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, former program manager Amjad Fseisi made a number of statements confirming the operation’s existence.

When asked if the CIA was continuing to spy on Trump, Fseisi said, “I would say yes. Nothing goes by without somebody watching. We also have people that are watching his ex-wife.”

Fseisi described how senior leadership at the CIA, NSA, and DOJ conspired to withhold information from Trump while he was president. Fseisi claimed the top intelligence officials decided not to provide Trump with such intelligence out of fear he would divulge the information.

“We kept information from him,” Fseisi said in the video. “He’s an idiot. There are certain people that would … give him a high-level overview but never give him any details. You know why? Because he’ll leak those details.”

Fseisi claimed that Trump would call Russian President Vladimir Putin and divulge top-secret information, adding that Trump was a “moron.” He also stated that Trump will not win this year’s presidential election, claiming he had “done the math, it’s impossible.”

“We have a choice here. Do we want a democracy? Or do we want some f*****g madman who wants to be a dictator?” Fseisi said in the video.

Fseisi also took a shot at Trump supporters, calling them “rednecks who live out in the sticks” and “brainwashed, stupid, illiterate” people.

As previously reported by The Dallas Express, the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department (DOJ) have been accused of overreaching and invading the privacy of U.S. citizens. For example, while investigating the U.S. Capitol protests of January 6, 2021, the FBI cast a purportedly overly broad dragnet to target individuals whose phone data placed them near the building that day, regardless of whether their behavior was peaceful.

In a post on X, where the video of Fseisi is hosted, O’Keefe pointed out that Fseisi may have violated the law by confessing the information.

“Fseisi may have realized he could be held liable for violating internal agency provisions and federal laws like the Executive Agency ethics provisions, which restrict what he may share with others outside of his contracted-to agency,” O’Keefe wrote.

He added that Feisis may have committed “(a) obstruction of justice by deception (18 USC 1512); (b) conspiracy to obstruct (18 USC 371); and false statements (18 USC 1001).”

The CIA responded to the video with a statement to O’Keefe:

“These claims about CIA are absolutely false and ridiculous. CIA is a resolutely apolitical institution that provides intelligence support to policymakers including the President of the United States, irrespective of who occupies the office. We are a foreign intelligence focused Agency and do not monitor the former President. The individual making these allegations is a former contractor who does not represent CIA.”

In the video, Fseisi purportedly shows a green badge provided to contractors who work with the intelligence agency. A spokesperson from the NSA allegedly told O’Keefe that upon termination, such badges are secured and destroyed, suggesting Fseisi was still contracted by the CIA when he made the statements on hidden camera.
