Donald Trump sent pundits into fits of hysteria when he tweeted that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower.
The so-called “mainstream” media kicked into overdrive to smear Trump as a liar.
But a new bombshell report just proved everyone’s worst fears.
On March 4th, Trump tweeted that he found out Obama wiretapped Trump Tower.
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

The D.C. swamp – led by former FBI Director James Comey – claimed there was no evidence to back Trump up.
But CNN shocked the political world when they reported that the Obama administration had former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under surveillance using a secret FISA warrant.
The administration was spying on Manafort before and after the election.
This time period included when Manafort lived in Trump Tower and was known to speak regularly to Trump.
“A secret order authorized by the court that handles the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) began after Manafort became the subject of an FBI investigation that began in 2014. It centered on work done by a group of Washington consulting firms for Ukraine’s former ruling party, the sources told CNN.
The surveillance was discontinued at some point last year for lack of evidence, according to one of the sources.
The FBI then restarted the surveillance after obtaining a new FISA warrant that extended at least into early this year.
Sources say the second warrant was part of the FBI’s efforts to investigate ties between Trump campaign associates and suspected Russian operatives. Such warrants require the approval of top Justice Department and FBI officials, and the FBI must provide the court with information showing suspicion that the subject of the warrant may be acting as an agent of a foreign power.”
But the wiretap provided no evidence of collusion.
CNN also reports:
“Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation. Two of these sources, however, cautioned that the evidence is not conclusive.”
Despite all the denials, it was true that the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign.
It’s the worst scandal in American political history and Obama must answer for his role on using the intelligence community to wiretap his political opponents as part of a fishing expedition.
What are your thoughts?
Should Obama be held accountable?
