All the way back to his election campaign, President Trump has asserted that former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have conducted campaigns of dirty tricks against Mr. Trump.
Trump’s claims that their Democratic tactics and ploys hearken back to the days of Watergate during the Nixon administration.
President Trump has accused former President Obama of abusing executive power by ordering the wiretapping of the phones at Trump Towers, his New York campaign headquarters, an allegation which Obama flatly denied.
But there is enough evidence to support an investigation!
Via The Telegraph:
Donald Trump escalated his war with Barack Obama as a committee in Congress agreed to look into his claims that the former president and his administration abused executive powers in last year’s election.
In his latest high stakes salvo Mr Trump had called for a congressional investigation after alleging that he was the victim of a dirty tricks campaign akin to Watergate.
How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

His move came a day after he claimed his predecessor ordered a wiretap of the phones at Trump Tower in New York, Mr Trump’s campaign headquarters.
James Comey, the FBI director, asked the Justice Department this weekend to publicly refute Mr Trump’s assertion, unnamed officials told the New York Times on Sunday.
Mr. Comey and the Justice Department have been working to reject the claim because it falsely insinuates that the FBI broke the law, it was reported.
Neither the FBI nor the Justice Department have so far released any public statement.
Mr Obama has said the allegations made against him by Mr Trump were “simply false”. James Clapper, his former intelligence chief also “absolutely denied” the claims. But Mr Trump told a friend he was convinced he would be “proven right”.
Congressman Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, responded by confirming that his committee “will make inquiries into whether the government was conducting surveillance activities on any political party’s campaign officials or surrogates”.
The committee is already examining possible links between Russia and Mr Trump’s campaign.
Tom Cotton, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said it would also investigate Mr Trump’s allegations.
He said: “We’re going to follow the facts wherever they lead us and I’m sure that this matter will be a part of that inquiry.”
So far, every time Trump has made any kind of assertions, the evidence has come out to back up his statements and every time the mainstream media has gone out of it’s way to ignore the evidence.
We may never know the full truth about any of the dirty tactics Obama and Hillary used against Donald Trump, but if just one is proven to be true, then the buffer zone the media have so carefully constructed to insulate Obama will come crashing down!
