President Trump -- the victim -- is viewed as the villain.
ABC claimed President Trump breeched security by complaining about being wiretapped.#morningjoe can't believe #wiretapping— dt (@sublime_carrot) March 6, 2017

From ABC News:
In tweeting accusations that former President Barack Obama ordered surveillance of his campaign, President Donald Trump potentially made public the existence of Top Secret wiretaps – a move that would be a federal crime, if performed by anyone other than the commander-in-chief.
Trump’s stunning allegation came in an early morning tweetstorm, in which he wrote in part: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory.”
Because the sitting president offered no evidence to back up his claim, it wasn’t clear whether the tweet – which was followed by four others taking on his predecessor, including one misspelling the word “tap” – was based on classified knowledge he received in his capacity as president, or on an article posted yesterday to the conservative Breitbart website.
It also isn't known whether such federal wiretaps actually existed.The whore was asking to be gang-raped by walking to Sunday School.
But how can he breech security, ABC News, if no wiretaps exist?
Actually, it is known and has been known since before the inauguration.
From the New York Times on January 19:
Intercepted Russian Communications Part of Inquiry Into Trump AssociatesHow do you intercept "Russian communications" without a bug?
From that January 19 story:
The F.B.I. is leading the investigations, aided by the National Security Agency, the C.I.A. and the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in recent weeks but have found no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, the officials said. One official said intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House.Now we know why they were so desperately seeking evidence -- "accelerated their efforts."
They had to justify a wiretap warrant delivered weeks before the election which allowed the Obama administration to wiretap Trump Tower.
This is The Mother Of All October Surprises.
And the Baghdad Bobs of the press ignore it.
Remember the Obama administration went after James Rosen of Fox News, and tapped the phones of the Associated Press, so this is par for the course.
But the press stands by their man.
Ignoring their earlier report on the FBI intercepting Russian communications, the staff of the New York Times wrote:
The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, asked the Justice Department this weekend to publicly reject President Trump’s assertion that President Barack Obama ordered the tapping of Mr. Trump’s phones, senior American officials said on Sunday. Mr. Comey has argued that the highly charged claim is false and must be corrected, they said, but the department has not released any such statement.I am losing track. Is Comey a heel like he was in October when he sent Congress a letter on Hillary again, or a hero again like he was in July when he refused to recommend indicting her?
Then there is James Claper, who perjured himself when he told Congress the Obama administration did not engage in domestic spying.
From NBC News:
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on Sunday denied any suggestion that Trump Tower communications were wiretapped before the election.
For the part of the national security apparatus that he oversaw, "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 told Chuck Todd in an exclusive interview on Sunday's "Meet The Press."Perjury? What perjury?
Of course if there were no wiretaps, then why did the Obama administration bother getting a FISA warrants?
The press is making no damned sense at all as it tries to deny a reality that looms larger by the news cycle:
The Obama administration wiretapped the opposition.As Roger L. Simon put it:
Would an attorney general (in this case Loretta Lynch) normally inform the White House of a decision to go to a FISA court for approval of the tapping of a political presidential opponent? Did Ms. Lynch so inform the White House? Was there any discussion of this decision between the WH and the DOJ? Why did the Justice Department decide to go back to the FISA court in October for a second try at approval? Whose idea was that? Did they did have additional information? What was that? Was Trump's name included in the brief the first time but omitted in the second? Why? If none of this happened, who made it up and why? That makes no sense, considering how easy it would be to disprove. Unless, of course, although it's not supposed to happen, the NSA just regularly taps everything and everybody, including presidential candidates, the president elect, and the president himself. But why then on Jan. 12 of this year, again according to the New York Times, did the Obama administration suddenly broadly extend the powers of the NSA?
I could go on, but you get the point. The possibilities here are endless. And WikiLeaks already revealed Obama's extensive use of wiretaps. It's a long list. Nothing particularly new here except this one, if it happened, was aimed at his most important adversary in our democratic republic, threatening the very underpinnings of our country and making Nixon seem like an amateur. No doubt the Democrats will hide behind national security, but that can only go on for so long. People in leadership positions like Sen. Cotton are entitled to the facts -- and they will get them eventually, perhaps quickly since this is a Trump administration finally, even if so many appointments are being held up. Also -- and this is what the sleaze-artists like Schumer and my own Rep. Adam Schiff know well -- Trump has obviously been wiretapped up the you-know-what, probably from numerous sources. If not, where have all these leaks come from? Mars?We know the answers.
This is Watergate on Steroids.
The only real question is, did Obama wiretap Romney in 2012?
Check the FISA records, President Trump.
