New revelations are being brought to light regarding Obama’s administration bugging Trump Tower during the recent, presidential election. In a move that’s already being called “way beyond Watergate,” many concerned Americans are wondering just how much corruption went unchecked during Obama’s presidency. The former president supposedly bugged Trump, and there are many unanswered questions.
Bugging reports came only days after it was revealed Obama’s Department of Justice funneled billions of dollars to liberal-activist groups. Many believe the possible, Trump Tower bugging to be further evidence Obama decided he would have a post-presidency involvement with politics while he was still in the White House.
It would make sense that Obama was making the appropriate preparations to not just fund opposition forces to go against Republicans but also get plenty of material for them to use against the future president. Popular, radio-host Rush Limbaugh claimed Obama has been running a shadow government since he left the White House. Such claims would be easy to prove wrong if there was evidence proving them as just conspiracy-inspired rhetoric. Unfortunately, the shadow-government idea continues to have supporting evidence.
Obama has been out of the public eye since he left the White House, only making statements through his spokesman, Kevin Lewis. In response to the allegations, Lewis has denied any possible order on surveillance (on a US citizen) ever being done by Obama or any White House official. Still, many believe Obama bugged Trump.
“Trump, who started the Twitter rant at 5:30 a.m. US EST, branded the claims a ‘new low’ before appearing to call Obama a ‘bad (or sick) guy.’”
But Obama has strongly denied the allegations.
His spokesman, Kevin Lewis, said, “President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any US citizen.”
Will Trump present evidence of the bugging to the public and let them decide who is telling the truth? The public already trusts the president more than the media. The president might not need to prove any of Obama’s actions, as Americans believe them to be true.
