Donald Trump slipped-up when he said Obama’s warrant for tapping Russian phones was directed at him. Now he is trying to provide his own proof as a smoke screen.
A Trump insider found court documents showing a request for a warrant to place wiretaps investigating Russian activities during the election.
Why else would Trump think the Russian taps were targeting him?
President Trump – who’s administration is under investigation for working with the Russians – quickly responded through tweets that the phone taps were targeted at him.
It was a big mistake, basically admitting that he was directly communicating with the Russians. Why else would he think the taps were targeting him?
Now Trump’s team has come forward with a photo saying it is proof that Obama was involved in the wire tap. Their hope is that the idea of a president involved in bugging phones will take the attention away from Trump’s slip-up.
The Trump’s Tweets:
“How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”
“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!”
“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!”
