aside President Is Tweeting Again Complaining That His Predecessor Wiretapped His Calls

Image result for photos of president trump at speech 2/28Here 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.”

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.

President Donald Trump

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.”

Excerpts:

“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.”

“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. ”

Is it legal for a sitting President to be “wire tapping” a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!

I’d bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!

 “The president then compared the alleged surveillance of his communications to Watergate – the scandal in the early 1970s that brought down Republican president Richard Nixon after he ordered a break-in of the Democrats’ Washington headquarters.”

How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

 “Trump also made efforts to defend Jeff Sessions, the US attorney general facing questions over his meeting with the Russian ambassador to Washington during the 2016 presidential election campaign.”He tweeted: “The first meeting Jeff Sessions had with the Russian Ambassador was set up by the Obama Administration under education program for 100 Ambs…” .

“He added: “Just out: The same Russian Ambassador that met Jeff Sessions visited the Obama White House 22 times, and 4 times last year alone.”sessions-jeff-1

“There was no additional information provided to substantiate the president’s claims that Obama had “wire tapped” Trump Tower, and it was not clear on what information Trump was basing the allegations.”

“The Trump administration has been on the back foot over its contacts with Russian officials before the president took office in January.”cabinet-trump-recruits-of-ex-generals-general-james-mattis-lieutenant-general-michael-flynn-and-general-john-kelly

“Last month the national security adviser, Michael Flynn, was forced to resign over conversations with the Russian ambassador to Washington and misleading statements about them to the press and the vice-president, Mike Pence.”

“This week it was revealed that Sessions had two meetings with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, last year that he failed to disclose to senators in his confirmation hearing.”

“Sessions said on Friday he would recuse himself from investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election despite backing from Trump, who described the controversy as “a total witch hunt.”
