So Trump recently tweeted from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida (his fourth weekend away from Washington since he was inaugurated Jan. 20) that Obama was a "bad (or sick) guy" for tapping his offices in Trump Tower. He has not yet provided any evidence for this rather serious accusation. So here are the possibilities that I think we should discuss:
A. That Trump read news from Breitbart.com and InfoWars and then immediately tweeted out accusations without seeking further information or clarification. Both of these ran with a story on Friday alleging that Obama eavesdropped on Trump. So even though he has a responsibility to lead a diverse nation 320 million Americans, he chooses to tweet out accusations of lawbreaking that will serve to further erode our political climate and dialogue.
B. That Trump was indeed wiretapped. That means that another possibility is that the president was under surveillance through an order from a FISA court. This would mean that a federal judge felt there was probable cause to believe that Trump had committed a serious crime or was an agent of a foreign power.
C. That Obama convinced members of a federal agency to illegally circumvent the FISA procedure and tap Trump directly. Or maybe Obama snuck into Trump Tower and installed the taps himself. In either case, Trump should provide evidence and proceed with charges against Obama.
What do you think?
