President Trump Gets Angry When Told Obama Tapped His Phones and Computer [VIDEO]

President Trump went on a Twitter rampage upon learning that Obama had allegedly tapped both his phones and his computer system at Trump Tower.  Before we get into that, is it really true that Obama tapped Trump’s phones?  According to Mark Levin it is.

1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.

(The reason that the turn down is uncharacteristically is because the threshold is so low, almost any phone can be tapped)

4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

(A FISA warrant does not require probable cause, it only requires just evidence amounting to probable cause that the target of the wiretap is an agent of a foreign power.  So, how did Obama manage to convince a judge Trump is a foreign agent?)

7. January: Times report. The New York Times reports, on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies — the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Treasury Department are monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties. Other news outlets also report the exisentence of “a multiagency working group to coordinate investigations across the government,” though it is unclear how they found out, since the investigations would have been secret and involved classified information.

(So, with all that surveillance and the wiretaps, they were unable to find anything dishonest)

Here are some of Trump’s tweets:
