Trump Tweets Conspiracy Theory About Obama Wiretapping Him

Donald Trump

President Donald Trump sent out a string of Tweets, alleging that President Barack Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower to undermine his campaign, and questioned the legality of such an action.

Trump’s tirade seems to have originated from allegations in a Breitbart article, which sums up the conspiracy theory as follows: the Obama Administration monitored Trump Tower during the campaign, continued to do so, and allowed information such as the so-called Trump Dossier and Michael Flynn scandal to leak to the press, thereby undermining the newly-inaugurated Trump Administration. Radio Host Mark Levin called the action a “silent coup,” and called for an investigation.

A spokesperson for Obama said that the allegations are “unequivocally false,” stating that the White House did not interfere with an official investigation.

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