"This Is Watergate": Trump Accuses Obama Of Wiretapping The Trump Tower

In a series of Tweets, Donald Trump made the claim, slamming it as a “new low”. He then appeared to brand Obama a “bad (or sick) guy”.

The property tycoon turned politician wrote: “How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”

Watergate refers the early 1970s political scandal which forced the resignation of Republican President Richard Nixon when it emerged that the Democratic party’s headquarters had been broken into.

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

McCarthyism is the practise of making accusations without proper evidence.

He later added: “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 still insist....

...this miserable P.O.S. is orchestrating all the leaks and the Left's impeachment strategy.

The best way to deal with Obama... is too get the facts out regarding his citizenship issues and his direct ties to Islam... and then go after him for the many crimes he committed while in office.

Start with the 'murder/execution' of 4 US Citizens... who he personally signed death warrants on without any of the Constitutional Due Process required too do so... some have labeled these executions as an 'extra judicial' killing.  The facts speak for themselves it was unlawful and premeditated murder. There was no due process... the 4th, 5th, and 6th Amendment protections were not applied, before Pres. Obama signed their death warrants.

see:

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/who-were-the-4-us-citizens-killed-in-dr...

It should be noted that these deaths did not result from  'combat'... they occurred in Yemen... a nation, that Congress had not authorized the use of military force... drone strikes.  Laws... all kinds of them...were violated in the execution of these US Citizens.

Those US Citizens executed may have been terrorist...we will never know, as no indictment or trail occurred, not even a public hearing of the evidence took place... before they were executed.  These US Citizens were denied their Constitutional right to due process: the right to be indicted by a grand jury, the right to a jury trial, the right to confront the witness against them and too present their defense... they were denied their rights and were summarily executed by Pres. Obama. 

The execution of these US Citizens by Pres. Obama must not go unanswered... justice must be done.

Really sick of tweets when it should be arrest warrants with charges of sedition.

When I played tennis a lifetime ago, I had a pretty strong backhand. I have since then, always equated it with slamming someone with the truth. I want to see Trump's backhand, not a soft serve. Twitter is a soft serve and can never win the match.

AG Jeff Sessions has been in congress, both the house and the senate for 20+ years, and knows how Washington D. C. works, I agree it is time for some federal arrest warrants, but with so many within all branches of government, many outside of or sub-parts of the federal government's ABC soup-mix, states - their governing bodies against our President the only way for President Trump to get the word out, & the fastest way for him, with so many issues demanding his time and attention, is to Tweet.

House Intel Committee chair says US government collected surveillance on Trump transition team

BOMBSHELL: Trump team surveilled during Obama admin, says House Intel chair

It turns out that President Trump’s transition team may have been surveilled after all.

Politico reports, “Members of the Donald Trump transition team, possibly including Trump himself, were under surveillance during the Obama administration following November's election, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes told reporters Wednesday.”

Rep. Nunes, R-Calif., said that "sources" informed him of possible surveillance that appears to have been legal and unrelated to the Trump-Russia collusion theories. 

Politico’s Eric Geller provided more details from the Nunes press conference.

He does not deserve the benefits that come with resignation.

He should be arrested and tried for everything related to his cover-up, dereliction, aiding and abetting, ignoring congressional orders, etc.

Resignation does not preclude PROSECUTION... after he is out of office.  It may however mitigate or ameliorate the time in prison... we need him gone ASAP.

PROSECUTION? We haven't heard of any plans, nor witnessed anything that even resembles a single thought of indictment for the leftists scoundrels that have already committed crimes and those Democrat officials that brazenly state that they will defy the law in order to thwart Trump's agenda. So will we ever see a Grand Jury impaneled? It sure doesn't seem like that will ever happen.

Instead, we witness the firing of Mike Flynn, the recusal of DOJ Jeff Sessions, the daily whining by the devious DEMs for Devin Nunes to step down, two travel bans thwarted by the DEM's corrupt judicial appointees, and finally the complete failure to legislate a decent Healthcare Law. Really? They only had eight years to craft a near perfect bill.

So this is what it's like when WE have control of the House, the Senate and the Oval office? Anybody else frustrated and disappointed like ME? 

I sure am disappointed with Trump, how many times does a creep like Paul Ryan have to stab him in the back before he recognizes an enemy... I mean Trump even considered Romney for Secretary of State?!

In my mind all Trumps needs to do as the representative of We the People is to charge all the liberals and RINOs (within last eight years) in congress, senate, media and especially hussein's administration with treason and let We The People be the judge, The People's Court, there's plenty of easily collected evidence, even most of us can provide it ...Trump has the uppermost hand and yet he is not using it.

Trump is not draining the swamp, just the opposite, he is adding to it ...I'm afraid our only recourse is for The Tea Party to attack Trump like we did hussein, otherwise the country will not be "great again", not now, not ever, but a cestpool soon like europe... I truly hope Trump is just showing his liberal side, not acting on it.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
