I’d bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October – Trump
A spokesman for former president of America, Barack Obama on Saturday rejected claims from U.S. President Donald Trump that Obama had wiretapped his phone in October during the late stages of the presidential election campaign.
In a responding statement, Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said “Neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false,”
Lewis also stressed that “a cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice.”
However, the statement sited the possibility that a wiretap of the Trump campaign could have been ordered by Justice Department officials, with white house incapacitated to interfere.
On Trump’s twitter page, the President of the United States implied that Obama had improperly tapped his phones, without citing concrete evidence, on Saturday morning.
“How low has President Obama gone to ‘tapp'(sic) my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate.
“Bad (or sick) guy!,” Trump said in a series of tweets on his Twitter account early on Saturday.
“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!”
