Trump Tweets – Building On The Reason For Trump To Resign – ‘Trump cites no evidence, accuses Obama of ‘Nixon/Watergate’ plot to wiretap Trump Tower’
As to the 2 tweets referrencing the Russian Amb – they were a matter of public record. So What was Jeff Sessions hiding?
Trump needs to throw red meat to the press to distract them from the daily growing of his Trump-Russia connections.
So Trump cites a debunked (Mark Levin) right wing, conservative radio nut case that wrote an article in Breitbart Conspiracy News as the source of his claims.
And Donald——do you REALLY want the FISA information disclosed?
‘Citing no evidence to support his explosive allegation, Trump said in a series of five tweets sent Saturday morning that Obama was “wire tapping” his New York offices before the election in a move he compared to McCarthyism’.
‘Trump offered no citations nor did he point to any credible news report to back up his accusation, but he may have been referring to commentary on Breitbart and conservative talk radio suggesting that Obama and his administration used “police state” tactics last fall to monitor the Trump team’.
‘The Breitbart story, published Friday, has been circulating among Trump’s senior staff, according to a White House official who described it as a useful catalogue of the Obama administration’s activities’.
‘Radio host Mark Levin used his Thursday evening show to outline the known steps taken by President Barack Obama’s administration in its last months to undermine Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and, later, his new administration’.
1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.
2 articles about WikiLeaks that not Obama but Trump cited every single day for a month.
But somehow that’s Obama’s fault.
4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.
