Catching up on Trump’s wiretap claims

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said on Monday he was nearly certain Donald Trump had not spoken to FBI Director James Comey about the president’s claim, without evidence, that the previous administration wiretapped him during the 2016 campaign.Spicer told reporters he was “almost 100 percent certain” Trump had not spoken to Comey since the Republican president claimed on Twitter on Saturday that former Democratic President Barack Obama ordered a wiretap at Trump Tower in NY.”If I hear something that I know to be untrue, than I think it’s my responsibility to point that out”, he said. While there is still no indication that he based his explosive tweets about the previous administration on anything other than conspiracy theories on the internet, Trump, as commander-in-chief, does have the power to declassify information about national security matters at his whim, legal experts say. But to make the leap, without any evidence, to the claim that Obama ordered the tapping of Trump phones during the campaign is an act of breathtaking cynicism. And FBI Director James Comey has reportedly gone so far as to demand that the Justice Department publicly contradict Trump, whose claims, if true, would seem to indict the FBI as well. Between 2010 and 2015, the court granted more than 9,500 warrant applications without rejecting one, according to DoJ records. “There was no such wiretap activity mounted against the president, the president-elect at the time, or as a candidate, or against his campaign”, Clapper said on Meet the Press on Sunday.

But other Republicans were sceptical. “He is the president of the United States”, she told Fox News on Monday. But Mr. Trump’s aides defend his wiretapping claim. The White House has denied any such links with Ms Sanders saying the press is peddling a “false narrative that there are connections between the Trump campaign and the Russians”.At the same time, reporters face pressure from Trump opponents who give no quarter, as witnessed by last week’s backlash against television analysts who suggested Trump gave an effective speech before Congress. Mr Rosenstein, US attorney in Baltimore, is scheduled to testify on Tuesday before the Senate judiciary committee, which is considering his nomination.He continued: “If the FBI made a decision to use their wiretapping authority in the context of the counterintelligence or criminal investigation, it would require FBI investigators, officials at the Department of Justice going to a federal judge, and making a case, and demonstrating probable cause to use that authority to conduct the investigation”.

After the president made wild accusations that his predecessor wire-tapped his phones in Trump Towers, Barack stepped out looking happy and totally relaxed.
