The government’s surveillance of Americans has been “exponentially” increasing over recent years, according to constitutional scholar John Eastman.

“[The coronavirus pandemic] is just now going to bring it to the forefront where we can actually see what is going on,” the Claremont Institute senior fellow told “Ingraham Angle” on Thursday.

Eastman argued that the government has been “piggybacking” on Supreme Court precedent that ruled such surveillance lawful under “exigent circumstances.”

Eastman said that the Supreme Court is recognizing problems with new technologies and Internet tracking abilities that are creating real Fourth Amendment problems pertaining to search, seizure and privacy.
