Trump Has Meltdown In Tweetstorm: ‘Bad Guy’ Obama Had My Phones ‘Wire Tapped’


We can’t imagine where Donald Trump is getting his claim that former President Barack Obama had Trump Tower’s ‘wires tapped’. We checked fake news’ sites Gateway Pundit and Infowars, Trump’s go-to sites for ‘news’, and we found nothing.

Trump went on quite a tweetstorm this morning. “The first meeting Jeff Sessions had with the Russian Amb was set up by the Obama Administration under education program for 100 Ambs……,” the amateur president tweeted.

“Terrible!” Trump wrote in the next tweet. “Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”

“Just out: The same Russian Ambassador that met Jeff Sessions visited the Obama White House 22 times, and 4 times last year alone,” he wrote in the following tweet.

“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!,” he continued.

“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!” he continued.

‘How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!” Trump wrote in a misspelled tweet.

The only thing we can find that remotely resembles Trump’s claim is this from the New York Times which was published on Wednesday:

American intelligence agencies routinely wiretap the phones of Russian diplomats, and transcripts of the calls showed that Mr. Flynn urged the Russians not to respond, saying relations would improve once Mr. Trump was in office, according to multiple current and former officials.

And if there was a FISA warrant to ‘tapp’ Trump’s phones for whatever reason, he might be tweeting classified information. All indications point to the FBI rejecting a FISA warrant in January so we’re back to wondering where Trump is getting this. There is no evidence on Google to back up Trump’s desperate claim of being surveilled by Obama.
