Here we go again. Despite the negative drip, drip news about our republican President Donald Trump, he was still coming off a credible delivery of his speech to the American peoples on 2/28/17. And for three full days he was on his best behavior. He didn’t even tweet in response to the Oscar’s show. But he couldn’t stand it. First thing this morning of 3/4/17 he was tweeting away, blaming the former president for the leaks about his administration’s ties to Russia prior to his election victory.
He is now deflecting away from the negative news cycle by claiming that the democratic President Barack Obama had his NY phone calls wiretapped. In this case, he could be basing his beliefs on today’s Alt-right Breitbart and the Russian RT News, the “Fake News” outlets.
This is a 3/4/17 RT headline, “This is McCarthyism!’ Trump accuses Obama of wire tapping Trump Tower before election win.”
This is a 3/3/17 Breitbart headline, “Levin to Congress: Investigate Obama’s ‘Silent Coup’ vs. Trump.”
Here is a 3/2/17 Breitbart headline, “Sen. Orrin Hatch ‘Shocked’ Obama Team Conducted Surveillance of Trump Campaign, Transition.”
This is a 2/15/17 Breitbart headline, “HAYWARD: Flynn Resignation Is a Surveillance State Coup Nightmare.”
In short, no American citizen can be wiretapped along with foreign officials suspected of spying without the appropriate legal warrants from the FISA courts. As per Wikipedia, “The United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC, also called the FISA Court) is a U.S. federal court established and authorized under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA) to oversee requests for surveillance warrants against foreign spies inside the United States by federal law” …
All the major establishment news organizations have announced for the record that there is no evidence regarding the president’s assertion that he was wiretapped by President Barack Obama prior to his election. However, if there was a FISA Court warrant issued to wiretap as per the president’s allegations, then he should be shaking in his boots.
Here is the rest of the story…
On 3/4/17, Chris Johnston of The Guardian penned the following article, “Donald Trump accuses Obama of ‘wire-tapping’ his office before election.”
“Donald Trump has accused Barack Obama of “wire tapping” his offices in New York City before the presidential election in November last year, claiming the former president had overseen a “Nixon/Watergate”-style intervention.”
“Launching a series of tweets at 5.35am eastern time on Saturday morning, the US president said: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”
“He followed up that initial tweet with a string of others in the following 30 minutes that claimed Obama had defied a court rejection to tap his office, and invited a “good lawyer” to make a case against the alleged process. ”
