President Trump recently made headlines after accusing Obama of wiretapping him. “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism! How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”
Many accused President Trump of saying this without evidence. However Obama’s response was very telling. “A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice. As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false,” said Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis.
Just like every politician, Kevin Lewis chose his words extremely carefully. He never denied that President Trump was wire tapped, he merely said neither Obama nor any White House Official directly order the wiretapping. However there is some evidence to show that Trump was wire tapped.
The FISA Court (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) “legally” wiretapped Trump based on “overwhelming evidence that the Trump campaign, or someone within it, has unsavory ties to Russia or another foreign power”, said Wired.com.
The bottom line is, they did wiretap Trump Tower. They tapped a server they thought was communicating somehow with Russia. This is a legitimate charge and we need a serious investigation,” explained said Jim Hanson.
