Trump is saying his phones were tapped, some are saying they weren’t. Trump wouldn’t just say stuff like this out of the blue, would he? There is really no reason for him to be going after Obama now, there are a lot of other things happening that he could be focusing on. So does that mean his tweets are true? What do you think?
Trump tweeted that the former president had been spying on him in October, a month before his election victory.
‘Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!’
McCarthyism, which the president used in his first tweet, is the practice of making accusations of subversion or treason without proper regard for evidence.
Trump started tweeting shortly after 3.30am ET and posed the question: ‘Is it legal for a sitting President to be ‘wire tapping’ a race for president prior to an election?’
In another tweet Trump said it was a ‘new low’ for the former president and compared it to ‘Nixon/Watergate’.
Trump also linked Obama to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s meetings last year with Russia’s US ambassador, Sergey Kislyak.
‘The first meeting Jeff Sessions had with the Russian Amb was set up by the Obama Administration under education program for 100 Ambs,’ he tweeted.
Trump’s team has sought to push back over its connections to Russian officials by pointing out instances of Democrats meeting with Kislyak.
But a former senior intelligence official told The Washington Post that ‘it’s highly unlikely there was a wiretap’.
‘It seems unthinkable. If that were the case by some chance, that means that a federal judge would have found that there was either probable cause that he had committed a crime or was an agent of a foreign power,’ the official said.
According to the official, a wiretap cannot be directed at a US facility, without finding probable cause that the phone lines or internet addresses were being used by agents of a foreign power.
‘You can’t just go around and tap buildings,’ the official told the Post.
Me Here.....I have a feeling President Trump had his phones checked regularly for taps. That is a likely reason he knew about this. He had to wait until he was sworn in to find out the details to confirm is was the government.
Barry Soetoro has a very long history of disregarding the law and Constitution. So doing this shouldn't have been an ethical problem for Barry. I am sure Barry was so certain Hillary would win, this would never be exposed. But the felon lost! Now President Trump is learning who was behind the tap. Now President Trump is pissed! You can see that in his tweets.
I have known for some time that Barry was going to keep pushing President Trump's buttons. Sooner or later Barry was going to push the wrong one and go too far. Could this be it?
When the wrong button is pushed by Barry, President Trump is going to unload on Barry. Could this be when President Trump orders an investigation as to Barry's lack of being a Natural Born Citizen? I think it will happen. When Barry's sealed college records and his forged Birth Certificate are nationally exposed, it will be hard for Barry to claim Natural Born Citizenship. Then President Trump will be able to fire all of Barry's appointees at every level of government including all judges up to and including the two on the Supreme Court.
This will infuriate the Democrats. But in the end, it will be the Democrats that should feel the heat from not properly vetting Barry. This should then about end the Democrat Party. It will finish the job Barry has started. Barry has done so much to greatly reduce the number of Democrats in office around the country.
I am sure there will be more to this story soon. So put on your Kevlar helmets and fasten your seat belts. This is going to be a bumpy ride from all the flak from the Democrats. President Trump, ignore the flak and expose Barry for the fraud he always has been! Tell the truth and they can't touch you!
