It’s happened so many times you’d think the mainstream media would be wising up to it. Trump makes a claim that they deride as “outrageous,” only to see the claim subsequently substantially or wholly verified. The same thing is happening with Trump’s claims that he was under surveillance at Obama’s behest. From Uncola at theburningplatform.com:
What a week it has been since President Donald Trump addressed congress, just eight days ago. Within hours of his attempt to unify the nation with a heartfelt speech that was widely praised by his supporters and opponents alike, Democratic Party leaders and their collaborators in the mainstream media once again doubled down on their fabricated Russian election hacking ruse. Within days, their combined efforts compelled Trump’s newly appointed Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, to recuse himself from any 2016 Presidential Campaign investigations.
On Friday, according to CNN and their White House Spy Cam, a “frustrated and angry” President Trump had a “fiery meeting” in the Oval Office with his advisors Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner, Sean Spicer, and Reince Priebus over the “fumbling” of the “situation with Sessions”.
By Saturday, March 4th, 2017, Trump evidently decided it was time to once more push back against those who wish to derail his administration. In a series of early-morning Tweets, Trump accused Former President Barack Obama of wire-tapping his phones at Trump Tower in New York City during the 2016 presidential campaign and made comparisons to Nixon, Watergate, and McCarthyism.
In response, Obama’s spokesperson, Kevin Lewis, denied Trump’s allegations and said:
neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any US citizen.
It was very interesting, in his carefully crafted response, how Lewis claimed Obama didn’t “order” any surveillance while at the same time, he did NOT deny any surveillance took place.
