Trump: Obama administration ‘tapped’ communications at Trump tower during the election

President Trump tweeted Saturday morning that former President Barack Obam ordered the tapping of communications at Trump tower during the 2016 election.

“How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”

Trump correctly used Nixon’s watergate as a historical comparison, but the new red scare is likely a major reason the Obama administration may have ordered the alleged secret surveillance of a U.S. citizen and candidate for president of the United States.

Just a few days ago I wrote that globalists, with President Obama at the helm, were on a witch hunt to connect Trump to the Russians by any means necessary in order to delegitimize his presidency:

The globalists need something so nefarious, so evil, so corrupt that no one would let president Trump succeed. They need .. a new red scare.

The wire-tapping President Trump referred to was reportedly requested by the Obama administration of the secret FISA court in June and October of 2016. The court refused the warrant in June, but signed-off in October and the political spying of a future candidate for president began.

According to another tweet by the president this morning, the taps came up empty:

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

Interestingly, the FISA warrants were reported on and discussed last November by Louise Mensch at Heat Street.

Contrary to earlier reporting in the New York Times, which cited FBI sources as saying that the agency did not believe that the private server in Donald Trump’s Trump Tower which was connected to a Russian bank had any nefarious purpose, the FBI’s counter-intelligence arm, sources say, re-drew an earlier FISA court request around possible financial and banking offenses related to the server. The first request, which, sources say, named Trump, was denied back in June, but the second was drawn more narrowly and was granted in October after evidence was presented of a server, possibly related to the Trump campaign, and its alleged links to two banks; SVB Bank and Russia’s Alfa Bank. While the Times story speaks of metadata, sources suggest that a FISA warrant was granted to look at the full content of emails and other related documents that may concern US persons.

Why is the president bringing this story back to the forefront?

Either president Trump has received new information outlining nefarious intent or this is an attempt to disrupt the left’s “new red scare.”
