Categories: Donald Trump
Donald Trump accused President Obama of ordering an illegal wiretap in Trump Tower during the election season. Trump sent a series of tweets that read "Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!", "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!", and then finished with "How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!" Multiple sources have come forward publicly to state that there is zero evidence to back up Trump's claims. Update: FBI Director testified under oath that he has "no information that supports those tweets."
