Donald Trump is not giving up his accusation that former President Obama wiretapped his campaign offices at Trump Tower.
The CEO of Newsmax Media, who known for having a close friendship with Trump, wrote on Sunday that Trump insists he will be proven right regarding his allegation of wiretaps at Trump Tower.
Christopher Ruddy wrote:
“I spoke with the President twice yesterday about the wiretap story. I haven’t seen him this pissed off in a long time. When I mentioned Obama ‘denials’ about the wiretaps, he shot back: ‘This will be investigated, it will all come out. I will be proven right.’”
Obama’s spokesman denied that he or any White House official ordered such surveillance.
Kevin Lewis said in a statement:
“A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice. As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”
White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Sunday called on Congress to incorporate an investigation into the alleged surveillance into its probe on Russia’s interference in the presidential election.
It should be noted that after Ruddy published his piece, it was reported that FBI Director James Comey has called for his department to reject the president’s claims that Obama illegally wiretapped Trump’s phones. Also, during the same Meet the Press broadcast that Ruddy criticized, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper straight up denied that a FISA court ordered a wiretap on Trump.
