Early Saturday morning, President Donald Trump broke some news:
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
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
Obama denied Trump's allegations.
Check out statement from Kevin Lewis, spokesperson to former President Obama. Enough said. pic.twitter.com/OTEQiVOHvh— Valerie Jarrett (@ValerieJarrett) March 4, 2017
Kevin Lewis, Obama spokesman, said:
A cardinal rule of the Obama administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice. As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any US citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.No, no, no.
Not enough said, Valerie.
We saw how the Democrats operate.
This statement says Obama didn't do it, making it appear that somebody with allegiance to Obama did bug Trump.
It reminds me of Bill Clinton's Monica Lewinsky denial, and Clinton's infamous, "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is."
We know how all that turned out.
Vice President Mike Pence makes a good point:
Of course Obama just issued a statement denying the #wiretap allegations. You know like Benghazi, Ransom, Iran, Russia, DOJ/media collusion.— The Vice President (@MikePenceVP) March 4, 2017
