Justice Department Confirms: There Was Absolutely No Wiretapping At Trump Tower

Submitted by: normalfreak2 9 months ago in News & Politics


Politico reports that the US Justice Department said it has no evidence to back President Trump’s false claim that former President Obama ordered a wiretap of Trump Tower. 

"Both FBI and NSD [DOJ national security division] confirm that they have no records related to wiretaps as described by the March 4, 2017 tweets," the department wrote in a court filing in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from American Oversight.

Trump is not dishonest, at least not in the usual way. His lies are so obvious that it takes seconds to disprove them. He tells such obvious lies so often because when people cover for him they can't say they were tricked. He wants people to willingly and knowingly destroy their credibility.

Of course Obama didn't. I would have been shocked to hear otherwise.

I was always of the impression Trump was throwing shade to distract from his fuck up of the day.

OTOH, Trump's supporters always believed it was true and no evidence to the contrary will convince them otherwise.

How is a president falsely accusing his predecessor of such a heinous crime not in itself a crime? I don't get that. Are the laws skewed this much to protect our presidents? What am I missing? This should be an absolute impeachable and jailable offense.

He's right...it's McCarthyism. Making baseless accusations is McCarthyism.

bil128 “microwaves that turn into cameras, etc,” Conway told New Jersey’s the Record newspaper in an interview on Sunday. “So we know that that is just a fact of modern life.”
