Earlier this morning, President Trump passionately declared that Obama had phones at Trump Towers wiretapped just weeks before the November 2016 Election. The President slammed the unlawful acts as “McCarthyism” and “Nixon/Watergate.” Although Mr. Trump has not revealed how he gained knowledge of these occurrences, people have already hypothesized that his accusations referenced a Breitbart article which claims that the Obama Administration made two Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court requests to track communications and computer servers in Trump Towers in case of any evidence that would link the President to Russia. Many conservatives believe that Obama has been secretly working to undermine Mr. Trump via organizations such as OFA and the deep state. Today’s findings do not help Obama’s cause in any manner whatsoever.
The former President has predictably denied all claims that he was involved in wiretapping phones at Trump Towers. Obama spokesperson, Kevin Lewis, recently stated that neither Obama nor anyone in his administration ordered surveillance on any American citizen. The blatant denial does not surprise me; it is hardly likely that the former commander-in-chief would admit to breaking the law and performing illegal surveillance. However, I am inclined to believe President Trump for a plethora of reasons. For starters, he would not make serious accusations without strong reasoning to substantiate them. Also, shortly before the President’s victory, Obama stated that he would consider a Trump Presidency as an insult to his legacy. This rhetoric displayed Obama’s intense desire to halt Mr. Trump from obtaining the Oval Office. It begs to question: Would Obama order someone to wiretap phones and computers at Trump Towers in the hopes of obtaining information that would prevent him from being President? Personally, I believe that such acts are not beneath him, but nonetheless, only time will tell.
Throughout the President’s array of morning tweets, he linked Attorney General Sessions’ meeting with the Russian Ambassador to the Obama Administration. This is closely related to the previous controversy surrounding the ire that followed from Sessions’ supposed failure to report meetings with the Russian Ambassador throughout the duration of the Trump campaign. As the President pointed out, the same Russian Ambassador who met Sessions twice also visited the White House 22 times throughout Obama’s Presidency and four times alone in 2016. Obama advocates have responded to these claims by alleging that their issue with Sessions stems from their belief that he was duplicitous when asked about whether or not he met with the Russian Ambassador.
I am personally calling for a direct, thorough investigation into claims that the former President ordered phones and computers at Trump Towers to be placed under wiretap surveillance. As far as I am concerned, there is reasonable evidence to support the claims of the Commander-In-Chief. Radio Host, Mark Levin, uncovered a slew of acts taken by the Obama Administration to undermine the campaign of Trump and sabotage his chances of obtaining the White House. Obama’s efforts were parallelized to police state tactics. He and his administration are reported to have filed a request with FISA to acquire rights to monitor communications between Mr. Trump and a plethora of his advisors. These claims were obviously denied, but Levin rightfully suggested that they should be subjected to a congressional investigation. If any shred of evidence is found against the former President, he should be arrested, tried, and put on trial for treason. The Democrat Party has aligned themselves with illegal immigrants, violent rioters, and other questionable characters. All things considered, treason is not a far stretch.
