The 39th president made headlines Sunday when he told NBC's “Meet the Press" that he thinks the National Security Agency might be monitoring his emails.
“As a matter of fact, you know, I have felt that my own communications were probably monitored. And when I want to communicate with a foreign leader privately, I type or write the letter myself, put it in the post office and mail it, because I believe if I sent an email, it will be monitored,” he admitted.
NSA Director Gen. Keith Alexander has denied that the spy agency has any interest in the former president.
