Obama Wiretapped More Than Just Donald Trump, Evidence Grows

What is now being called Obamagate does have some similarity to its namesake, Watergate, that brought down the Nixon administration. That similarity would be wiretapping, and if, as it appears, Mr. Obama authorized or benefited from illegally tapping the phones of Mr. Trump and others during the campaign, it was a very stupid thing to do. He has now landed himself in the middle of a scandal just as he was organizing to attack President Trump. That Obama may have shot himself in the foot by directing or participating in illegal wiretaps is becoming more apparent each day.

This story began with four of President Trump's tweets sent on March 4:

Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

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!

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!

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

Part of the problem Mr. Obama is going to have in trying to shake off these accusations is his history of ordering wiretaps during his administration. WikiLeaks provides some examples:

WikiLeaks released the following list on February 23rd of Obama Administration wire taps:

  • The US National Security Agency bugged a private climate change strategy meeting; between UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin;
  • Obama bugged Chief of Staff of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for long term interception targetting his Swiss phone;
  • Obama singled out the Director of the Rules Division of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Johann Human, and targetted his Swiss phone for long term interception;
  • Obama stole sensitive Italian diplomatic cables detailing how Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu implored Italy’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to help patch up his relationship with US President Barack Obama, who was refusing to talk to Netanyahu;
  • Obama intercepted top EU and Japanese trade ministers discussing their secret strategy and red lines to stop the US “extort[ing]” them at the WTO Doha arounds (the talks subsequently collapsed);
  • Obama explicitly targeted five other top EU economic officials for long term interception, including their French, Austrian and Belgium phone numbers;
  • Obama explicitly targetted the phones of Italy’s ambassador to NATO and other top Italian officials for long term interception; and
  • Obama intercepted details of a critical private meeting between then French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Merkel and Berluscon, where the latter was told the Italian banking system was ready to “pop like a cork”.

If this guy would have gotten something done instead of playing golf and eavesdropping on people's telephone calls he might actually have a legacy as opposed to just a list of failures.

In additional revelations, it would seem Mr. Obama was tapping the phones of the press as well. And the mainstream press is supposed to be filled with his good friends!

In addition to the above list we also know now that Obama wire tapped various individuals in the US media that were reporting information not flattering to the Obama Administration.  It is widely known that Obama’s Justice Department targeted journalists with wiretaps in 2013:

He's pretty effective when it comes to eavesdropping. What would be perfect would be for it to be disclosed that he was also tapping the phones of supposed allies like Pelosi, Reid, and Schumer, and that in so doing, “unpleasant” information about them wound up in the hands of the press and the Justice Department.

This man who alleges to be a constitutional law professor, desperately needs a review — in particular the concept that no one is supposed to be above the law. Either choosing to act as though he is above the law on his own, or following the example of the Clintons, does not remove the fact that Mr. Obama has gotten himself into trouble. They question will be how it all works out.
