Is Trump Digging his own Orange Grave With These Obama Wiretapping Accusations?

in Actual Events/Donald Trump/James Comey by

On Saturday, Trump shocked the world by accusing previous President Obama of wiretapping him. If this is true, we could be on the precipice of one of the most damaging presidential conspiracies since Watergate. In fact, in these fragmented and often psychedelic tweets, Trump compared Obama to Richard Nixon. He also called him a “bad (or sick) guy.”

After making such a scandalous accusation, it was quite indicative how silent the White House became the entire day following that tweet. Even more bizarre was how no one in Trump’s administration provided any evidence that would back up his claims. To this day, Trump’s “source” is unknown.

In the tweet, Donald Trump says “Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’.” The fact that wire tapped is in quotes means that Trump has quotable intel, a.k.a: sources. Our president needs to reveal his sources.

Imagine if Obama hurled similar screwball accusations at Bush Junior. Think of the hysteria that would have erupted in Washington! Trump does it though, and no one raises a single finger.

Hopefully, there will be an investigation. In that case, Trump’s little lie will become massive and many. The more lies he speaks the bigger his grave.

Trump is president today in part because of the campaign led by FBI Director James Comey. His mission to discredit Hillary Clinton went down swimmingly. Trump repayed James Comey’s loyalty by keeping his position. James Comey is the most superior position Trump kept from the Obama administration.
That is why it is so puzzling that James Comey requested that the Justice Department publicly deny President Trump’s allegation that President Obama had ordered a wiretapping of candidate Trump NPR article.

The mystery in Washington since Donald Trump has made this defaming accusation is to determine who this source is. Marco Rubio in an interview with CNNs Jake Tapper said,

I’m not sure what it is he is talking about. Perhaps the president has information that is not yet available to us or to the public, and if it’s true, obviously we’re going to find out very quickly, and if it isn’t, then obviously he’ll have to explain what he meant by it, so I — I don’t — I’m not sure what the genesis of that statement was, but I imagine we’re going to learn more about it here over the next couple of days one way or the other.

The Washington Post cited the only mention of this alleged Obama wiretapping is from a (drum roll, please) Breitbart article. If this is true, that means our president is skipping daily White House intel briefings and instead, gathering his news from Breitbart. God help us!

A few mere hours before Donald Trump tweeted his fantastical accusations, his Attorney General was forced to recuse himself from investigating Trump ties with Russian diplomats. Every day, more Trump officials are becoming in a Russian conspiracy. Our president certainly had reason to want to distract the country.

  1. I don’t think it’s at all far fetched. “Wiretap” was probably a bad choice of words. If you think about it … Obama tapped all of our phones with the NSA and his policies … he did, that’s common knowledge. Every phone in America is already tapped and it was done by Obama and we allowed it because Obama did it. The idea that Obama may have used that power to look more closely at Trump, is not hard for me to swallow … not at all.

    • Please do NOT distort the truth. The NSA came online under Bush. The government with the help of lawmakers approved the NSA long before Obama took office. And by your logic, Trump (as ((cough)) president) is doing the same as Obama.

  2. I am a liberal but hate liberal publications that print fake news. You guys printed that supposed quote by Trump from People magazine that claimed he said if he ever ran he would run as a Republican because their voters are dumb etc… The quote never existed, People magazine never printed it and it is easily fact-checked. Why did you print it? Trump lies and says enough stupid, crazy things for real without you having to make things up. You discredit us all and make us look stupid by printing this crap. I’ve started fact checking a lot of your articles and have found numerous lies and errors. Why do you do this? If you are truly liberal and want to help the world and protect it from these selfish, lying, scandalous, money-grubbing imbeciles, why would you discredit and dishonor us? Please answer me.

  3. His pathological narcissism is now combined with early onset of a neurodegenerative disorder with distinct symptoms of P-A-R-A-N-O-I-A. Yes, DT, nobody likes you and they are going to steal you blind!! HEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEH!!!

  4. trump is so dumb he doesn’t know he’s stupid !
    Do you think he’ll learn to keep his big mouth shut . Always lying making false news. The man has diarrheal of the mouth ! Running his mouth finally got him in TROUBLE ! LOL.

  5. “Come senators, congressmen
    Please heed the call
    Don’t stand in the doorway
    Don’t block up the hall
    For he that gets hurt
    Will be he who has stalled
    There’s a battle outside
    And it is ragin’
    It’ll soon shake your windows
    And rattle your walls
    For the times they are a-changin’.”

  6. For myself , I need to fact find on the wiretapping, But if the DNC is willing to rigging the voteing for “HC”, it not to far to think or find out that Obama may have done this, If a party is will to rigg , wiretapping is just one more step of miss-conduct to rigg it, I’m no fan of Trump .DNC NEEDS TO CLEAN HOUSE!!!!!

  7. (Pancha Chandra): Trump is not able to separate the grain from the chaff and makes wild accusations in order to get out of sticky situations, not realizing fully the implications of what he is doing! Obama, on the other hand is much smarter, never losing control of his faculties!

  8. No, it’s all part of the plan to completely destabilize our Govt. If Mar a Lago was “tapped” you’d probably see him and Putin raising their glasses for a job well done. Putin is smiling. This will no doubt become at least a weekly event to put doubt in the minds of every American citizen and those seeking citizenship. Jason Chaffetz mentioned on Faux News that this was, in so many words, the MO of Obama and wouldn’t put it past him. I’d encourage everyone to contact Jason and let him know what you think of him and his willingness to sit back and watch the destabilization of a nation.

  9. Yes – ONLY a judge with a court order can order wire tapping – President Obama did no such thing. DT got this news from Breitbart News (Bannon) – DT is trying to divert attention from the Russian probe and is coming out with these “fake news” stories now. DT needs to be forced to have a mental evaluation to see if he has NPD which is Narcissisisstic Personality Disorder – the very same disorder Hitler had – for DT to make this accusation shows that he is insane, unhinged, deranged and paranoid – he is unit for office big time – now he wants Congress to investigate President Obama – DT is totally insane and deranged – scary that this insane person has his fingers on the nuclear codes – this country is in danger big time and it is the insane person in the WH!

    • there are back door ways/rogue, and some laws(few) to do this, question is what the facts, or is it fake( I know some NSA/DIA/SEC. SERVICE, etc. under the pat. act,, ways it can be done ) it knot what being said, but what not being said,someone lying or telling half- trues??? so what t.he pudding of this mix

  10. Trump got this information from Briar Bart. The rag the Bannon puts out. Right wing propaganda is all it is. And this is what Trump lives by. Steve Bannon is a threat to the United States. Get rid of the Republicans. And Trump loses his power

    • Bannon is a Neo Nazi white supramacist who has ties to the KKK and terrorists. He also abused his wife because he didn’t want his children going to school with Jews. He also uses the N word – Bannon is bad news big time – what is scary is that this Nazi is running this country along with DT – DT and his entire administration needs to be deported to Russia to be with Putin – one way tickets for all – that would truly make America great again – everything that comes out of DT’s mouth is nothing but “lies” or “fake news” – what a POS DT is.

  11. Eventually he will act crazy enough for a 25th amendment solution. Which leave us with the Trump Plutocracy headed by Mike Pence a Christian Dominionist true believer and former Ted Cruz billionaire financiers, Robt and Rebekah Mercer. The Mercer’ are the billionaire power behind former Goldman Sachs senior partner Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway and the final word on Donald trump’s fate. Not looking good Donnie. Rebekah Mercer is a Christian Dominion true believer and preferred the Ayatolah Ted Cruz but saw a way to purchase the presidency for you. With Russian help. Which they knew they could count on. Big money ties and all that

  12. Par for the course for him; when he gets hit, he strikes back at who he perceives are “enemies”.
    He got that from his legal eagle and mentor, Roy Cohn. He would bluster and threaten people to try to intimidate them with legal threats. Most people didn’t want the hassle so they backed down. For those who toughed it out, most of the threats were thrown out or dismissed. The Donald thinks that these guys can be scared off but they can’t; these are real legal tough guys and they don’t play. Ask Roy Cohn:

  13. Yep – really really dumb, but, enough to start Impeachment proceedings – that process will take time, but, at the rate sh*t is coming out, easy-peasy to lock the tweeter up – he can tweet to his heart’s (well, if he had a heart) content in his prison cell!

  14. Yes he is digging his own grave with his crazy accusations I know the republicans are getting pretty tired of always doing damage control for them sooner or later whether he likes it or not they will all eventually start to turn on him it’s already starting to happen

  15. This IS fixable. Trump and his inner circle of misfits can be GONE if enough responsible and honorable Republicans can be found who are willing to place loyalty to country, human decency and simply common sense above loyalty to their political party. The grounds for impeachment and removal are already there: The Emoluments Clause of the US Constitution that Trump has been violating from Day One. https://youtu.be/bQ_fgiwCSX0

  16. PEOPLE…don’t be distracted! This Obama fiasco is another diversion by Dickhead and his clowns from the RUSSIA issue…I feel it…it is the Russia contacts that they are trying to cover up. You know every time we catch them at something…they come up with the most outrageous claims. KEEP FOCUSED…keep demanding answers from our Senators / officials

  17. The Republican’s dug the grave before he was sworn in. It’s there, waiting for him. They just aren’t quite finished with him yet. But little do they know…. the Trumpocalypse distraction is Alienating people. LOTS and LOTS of people against this so called “party”. Their days are numbered.

  18. In the words of Winston Churchill, relating to Adolf Hitler, you can fool all of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time – a phrase most likely to apply to Donald Trump, President of USA in 2017.

  19. Of course he is. 45 is lost as they come, and he knows good and got damn well President Obama and none of his cabinet members had ANYTHING to do with the politicians and 45 getting his $650,000.00 that 45 owes Russia he better put the blame where it’s due!! Yes 45 you are in on the Russian train, and the lot of politicians who broke US protocol and invited dignitaries from other countries, without the knowledge or permission from President Obama.. Listen 45 you borrowed the loot from Russia that’s why we dealing with 45 and his crew now. 45 have to pay $650,000.00 back to them.

    • for trying to manipulate the elections. For wiretapping Trump during the election and sharing info with Hillary, etc. etc. Not to mention that his whole life history seems to be a fraud. He never went to Columbia, at least no one remembers him. He was most likely born in Africa, as his grandmother, who he visits, in Africa, has clearly stated. And for all his crimes as president, being the fake peace president, while waging global war on behalf of the NWO. I just have little doubt they will actually find a way to imprison him, since he has been such an evil influence on America in so many ways.

  20. Wire Tapping isn’t beyond business activities of business men like master Don – who is a sneak anyway. The fact that he lies whenever he opens his mouth to denounce what everyone is doing merely proves this point.

  21. Something tells me that if Obama had that much power, Hillary would now be the President and not this POS in the White House! Trump is just deflecting anything negative away from himself, as he has and will always do! He’s a liar and a conman!
