Trump, Offering No Evidence, Says Obama Tapped His Phones

Postby ed » Sat Mar 04, 2017 4:16 pm

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — President Trump on Saturday accused his predecessor, Barack Obama, of having tapped his phones at Trump Tower the month before the election, calling Mr. Obama on Twitter a “bad (or sick) guy.”

Without offering any evidence or providing the source of his information, Mr. Trump fired off a series of Twitter messages alleging that Mr. Obama “had my ‘wires tapped,’ ” and he compared the professed activities to “Watergate/Nixon” and “McCarthyism.”

Trump tweeted so not fake news. Question is :

Mr. Trump’s aides declined to clarify whether the president’s explosive allegations were based on briefings from intelligence or law enforcement officials, or on something else, like a news report.


WTF is going on? Doesn't he have serious shit to worry about?

I don't think you normally make legal cases in tweets if that's what you are implying should have happened.

Warning, Breitbart.

I'd like to see his source for the FISA requests, but it appears Obama tried to do a legal watergate.

It was legal, because I was the president.

The problem is that when you have Trump acting like a 16 year old with his tweets, it is hard to know if there is something of substance. My default position, based on history, is that his tweets are like recollections of dreams.

The relevant part snipped.

Trump signaled Hillary would not be prosecuted when we was elected. It was a sort of "cease fire". The Hillary/Obama holdovers that have been sabotaging his administration seem to have hit the final straw.

The tweets were a warning shot. "fuck off or the investigations begin".

It will be funny to see if the NYT (which has used "unnamed sources" who knew of "intercepted communications" ) will say that the claims are false or not.

Do you think Obama would ask Comey to tap Trump's "wires" and Comey would do that?

The FBI was investigating Clinton at the time too. I really don't know what was happening at what level of government (just the FBI's doing or at the request of the White House) but it went through FISA so whatever happened, warrant was issued which makes it legal per se.

Over bu DU:

Yes the Dems (or some Dems) believe Obama tapped Trump's phones.

'You're in deep sh*t': Lawmaker alerts Trump if phones were 'tapped' a judge found 'probable cause..

Didn't used to be Democrats who reasoned this way.

Once the Dems figure out Trump can use FISA to "legally" spy on political opponents...

I seem to recall they knew it about Bushes I and II and Ronald Reagan.
