Trump accuses Obama of wire tapping his phones prior to election


President Donald Trump has accused Barack Obama of tapping his phones at Trump Tower in a flurry of tweets early Saturday morning, The Daily Mail reported.

 

Trump tweeted that the former president had been spying on him in October, a month before his election victory. 

 

'Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!' 


McCarthyism, which the president used in his first tweet, is the practice of making accusations of subversion or treason without proper regard for evidence.

 

Trump started tweeting shortly after 3.30am ET and posed the question: 'Is it legal for a sitting President to be 'wire tapping' a race for president prior to an election?' 

 

In another tweet Trump said it was a 'new low' for the former president and compared it to 'Nixon/Watergate'.

 

Trump also linked Obama to Attorney General Jeff Sessions's meetings last year with Russia's US ambassador, Sergey Kislyak.
