How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

I’d bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!

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!
When Trump took office he warned that “No More would be the order of the day.” Last week, a “fly-by” incident took place with one of our ships and a couple of Russian planes. Unlike previous incidents, our guys fired warning shots. The planes quickly broke off and flew away.
Now fast forward to Friday. Let’s consider what we can piece together over the last month. First Democrats decide to become major obstructionists to confirmations of Trump’s cabinet and every nominee is grilled, insulted, and then Dems show just how “civilized and congressional” they were by being absent in committee. Then Flynn is roasted and forced to resign which emboldened the Dims to think they now had a means of challenging and maligning Every member of Trump’s cabinet in order to get them kicked out on false or misleading charges. They harassed an honorable man to the point he recused himself on certain issues as attorney general. Again the Dimwits had been celebrating their smear campaign and victory so that by Friday evening, the White House had to be a tinderbox of anger building.
Then in a seemingly erratic and irate rant over the weekend out of the blue, Trump accuses Obama of spying on him before he was elected. The question here is – was it really so random or had Trump followed through on a missile salvo just as he had instructed his military to do?
After postings mentioning a “shadow government”, video surfacing of Loretta Lynch, pictures of Holder, Lynch, and Jarrett seen entering and at least one taking up residence with Obama in his DC residence along with a lot of jabberwoockies in MSM, did Trump decide enough was enough? In those few tweets, Trump delivered a media firestorm, caused congress members to push forward their Russia and now Obamagate investigations, and told the general public at large that he was fed up with the shenanigans and manipulations of Obama.
It’s about time. Now Obama is on the defensive and going to have to figure out how to smooth this Obamagate over to prevent his own trial. If this is the only or best way to begin trial and get Obama and his shadow gang out of the closet and into the full glare of the people and the law then so be it. For as long as Obama et al believe they can manipulate the press, the public, and disrupt the legitimate government of our country, they will do so. But by taking the first major warning shot (no matter how jarring or out of cinque it is with” normal” DC business), he has slapped DC and Dimwits upside their heads and completely baffled as well as put many on defense. He also showed people across the country that he can and will fight to keep the country moving forward just as he gave commands to the military to no longer roll over and take the insults.
So random rant in anger OR sly fox throwing out a hardball to those who would be likely to disrupt our country and his term in office?
A few of dozens of examples of MSM over the last few years and “incidents”.
Conservative Tribune: “LISTEN: Former Intel Officer Says Obama Could Be First Former President with a Felony Indictment” – Lieutenant Colonel Tony Shaffer, Senior Fellow at London Policy Center, joined Rusty Humphries of Trending Today USA to talk about the allegations made by President Donald Trump on Twitter that former President Barack Obama ordered wiretaps of his phones during the election. Shaffer says that this could be the first time that we see a former President indicted for felony and that this is “soviet-dictator level wrongdoing.”
“…there does seem to be some circumstantial evidence that Trump’s allegations were correct — at least more than any proving Trump was somehow colluding with the Russian government.
If indeed it does turn out to be the case that the Obama administration illegally surveilled Trump’s team ahead of Election Day as some have speculated, the end result could be the unprecedented indictment of a former president on felony charges.”
