Trump and the NSA

In a new interview, the head of the National Security Agency, Admiral Michael S. Rogers said that national security laws are being used to stifle dissent not to protect us from bad guys. Anyone who questions government actions or policies may be labeled a potential terrorist. And spying is best used to crack down on political protest.

"If you think you’re not doing anything that’s wrong, guess again, you don’t get to define that. The central government does." Rogers also confirms that the pervasiveness of spying under Trump has only “gotten worse”.

And he notes that the government will go after anyone who is on its enemies list:
If you ever get on the enemies list, like Petraeus did, then you can be drawn into that surveillance.
