Plot twist: Deparment of Justice says 'no evidence of Obama wiretapping Trump Tower'

Forums - Politics Discussion - Plot twist: Deparment of Justice says 'no evidence of Obama wiretapping Trump Tower'

- to the surprise of everyone the DOJ made the statement in a motion for summary judgment filed Friday in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the watchdog group American Oversight

- the DOJ said:

"Both FBI and NSD confirm that they have no records related to wiretaps as described by the March 4, 2017 tweets,"

- President Trump had claimed back on March that Obama spied on him  via twitter:

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

"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 news come as a surprise to every single person as we have all enjoyed a past campaign and present presidency from Donald Trump that has been characterized by honesty, transparency and lacking any contradictions.

But how can we be certain the Department of Justice isn't paid off by Obama?



LMFAO

People are so gullible, No politician tell the truth.



 

 

nobody thinks Obama literally tapped Trump's phone line, even Trump went on to explain what he meant by that. We already know some of the phone conversations at Trump tower were monitored, the DOJ already admitted that. It's just a matter if it was politically motivated and was the unmasking of the names of the people monitored politically motivated or a matter of national security.

Why you are bringing this up again I don't know. If they wanted to really deny what Trump said they would not use such lawyer speak about a wiretap, in 2017 you don't wiretap people's phones.

Trumps rise to power in politics has always been based on false accusations against obama and his base falling for most of what he says.

The fact that this man can hold the top office proves that ethics are dead. People at least used to fake having character. It's pretty much one step from complete anarchy any day now.

Anyway, the best part of this thread is going to be the damage control posts.



It's no surprise. I could tell he was being hyperbolic about a worry of his.

It's not about the term that was used. But whether or not "Sick Obama" ordered the monitoring/surveillance, as Trump claimed. Let alone on Trump Tower.
And there is no evidence supporting the claim that the FISA warrent that FBI and JOD obtained through a court order had any connection to the Obama administration. Certain sites put the name "Obama" in front of the articles because Obama was in office when the FBI and Justice Department recieved the court order.

And from my understanding the target of this court order was an advisor of the Trump campaign being investigated for his connections with Russian agents. Trump Tower would only get involved if this individual contacted people in the Trump Tower.

The way you put it, you make it sound like "Obama didn't order a wire tap, but monitoring". That's not the case either.
The error wasn't in Trump's choice of words. It was the assertion that Obama was behind it.



I am absolutely SHOCKED. Shocked, I tell you!
