IN HIS OWN WORDS – TRUMP: “This is McCarthyism”
~ T. Rump – Trump By Trump – 3/2017
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!,” Trump wrote in one tweet. “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!”
Saturday morning, an apparent frustrated or paranoid President Trump let loose a barrage of accusations at his predecessor including wiretapping. Trump offered no evidence to support his claims Saturday morning.
Old Joe McCarthy use to make accusations and provide no evidence – this is the way Trump works.
Normal President’s do not normally claim such things without normally providing evidence so as not to create abnormal distrust of the President by the press, congress and the people. The pressure on the President over many of his campaign surrogates having contacts with the Russians seems to great for Trump – that would be normal.
It’ is normally an old trick for Trump to accuse others of doing the things he has done, is doing, or will be doing.
A former senior US official with direct knowledge of investigations by the Justice Department under the Obama administration denied it, said that Obama could not order this, that it would have had to been taken to a judge by investigators, it never was – it did not happen.
Update: Former President Obama and his surrogates have denied such taps.
