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

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!

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!

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

This is old news, because several media sources have already reported that there was a FISA warrant to wiretap several Trump associates based on their contacts with Russia. The FBI is also actively investigating Paul Manafort, who is reported to maintain an apartment or office in the Trump Towers.

As to the question about whether it is legal for a sitting President to wiretap a candidate, it would be legal if it involved national security and if the candidate or his campaign were the target of a criminal or intelligence investigation.

The question could be posed: Is the Trump Tower the “new Watergate”?
