Trump accuses Obama of wiretapping him before election


President Trump, in a Saturday morning tweetstorm, responded to the mounting questions over his ties to Russia by accusing then-President Obama of wiretapping him at Trump Tower just before the November election.
The unsubstantiated outburst follows several days of stories raising questions about meetings between members of the Trump campaign and Russian officials, particularly two previously undisclosed meetings between now Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak.
"How low has President Obama attended tapp [sic] my phones through the very sacred election process," he writes. "That is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick and tired) person!"

In making the charges, Trump did not elaborate on any evidence backing up the explosive accusation.
Ben Rhodes, Obama's foreign policy adviser, responded to Trump in a series of tweets, first stating that "No President can order a wiretap. Those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you."
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said during a Clemson town hall meeting this morning that it would be the biggest political scandal since Watergate if it’s true that Obama either wiretapped Trump’s phones, illegally — or was able to obtain a warrant to lawfully monitor Trump’s campaign activity with foreign governments. Either scenario is worrisome, he said.
“It’s my job as a United States senator to get to the bottom of this,” he said to applause. “I promise you I will.”
Obama's spokesman has not responded to a request for comment.
The tweet blasts began at 6:26 a.m. from the Winter White House at Mar-a-Lago in Florida when Trump raised the Sessions issue by noting the first meeting between the senator from Alabama and the Russian ambassador was set up by the Obama administration as part of an education program.
Eight minutes later, he raised the charge of illegal surveillance by the Obama administration: "Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!"
Then: "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!"
And: "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!"
To that, Rhodes responded: "No. They couldn't. Only a liar could do that."
Lessons recused himself from any Trump-Russia exploration following the Justice Department recognized he spoke double with the Russian ambassador this past year and didn't disclose the connections during his Senate confirmation process.

Consultations said he didn't tried out to mislead anyone but might have been more careful in his answers. Monday he prepared to record amended testimony, a Justice Section spokesman said.

The leader taken care of immediately the Trainings concern obliquely Friday by firmly taking a golf swing at Senate Minority Head Charles Schumer, noting the brand new York senator recently met with Russian Leader Vladimir Putin.

Within a tweet, Trump put up a image of Schumer with Putin through the Russian leader's stop by at NY in 2003. He demanded a study of "close ties" between Schumer, House Minority Head Nancy Pelosi and Russia and "lying about any of it."

He called Schumer, that has demanded Lessons' resignation, a "total hypocrite."

Trump's Saturday day tweets come significantly less than per day after radio chat show host Hurry Limbaugh accused Obama of performing a "silent coup" to unseat Trump and provide him "effectively immaterial" as president.

"The true Russian scandal is the collusion between Barack Obama and his supervision and the Russians," Limbaugh said. "Obama's team used the pretext of Russian interference in the election to justify wiretaps and illegitimate leaks of the Trump team, including a U.S. senator and now legal professional general."

By late morning hours, Trump got -- at least -- shifted temporarily, expressing Arnold Schwarzenegger, his replacing on NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" didn't voluntarily leave the show but "was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me." He called it a "Sad end to a great show."

Friday he was giving the show after one season the celeb and previous California governor declared. He told Empire magazine that he'd decline to come back, if asked even. Trump, who may have remained executive producer of the show, has mocked the show's sagging ratings.

"With Trump being mixed up in show, folks have a bad preference and do not want to take part as a spectator or sponsor or in virtually any other way support the show," Schwarzenegger said. "It's an extremely divisive period right now and I believe the show acquired caught up in every that section."
