Jeff Sessions recuses himself from Trump campaign investigation
Trump: “Obama had my wires tapped in Trump Tower just before the victory”After calling for senior-level Democratic officials to be investigated regarding meetings held with Russian President Vladimir Putin, US President Donald Trump slammed former US President Barack Obama. “Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory,” Trump claimed.
This morning (Saturday), US President Donald Trump claimed that former US President Barack Obama had his “wires tapped” shortly prior to the presidential election victory announcement. “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory,” Trump claimed on his Twitter account. “Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”
Trump slammed Obama in a series of tweets implying that the act was illegal. “Is it legal for a sitting president to be ‘wire-tapping’ a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier,” wrote Trump. “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,” Trump tweeted.
How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
Trump’s series of tweets comes during a political storm in the US, as reported yesterday by JOL, surrounding senior-level officials within the new US administration and the fact that they have denied claims of meeting with Russian government officials during the recent US presidential election. Trump also commented on this matter, claiming lawmakers’ outcries and demands to be “a total ‘witch hunt!’”
