☠ ☠ ☠ ☠ ☠ ☠ ☠

The President can technically request a warrant to gather information via wiretap, but it still has to go through the process. Obama couldn't authorize it on his own. The Attorney General still has to sign off and the FISA judge still has to authorize the warrant. If the wiretapping did happen, everyone is under the assumption this was all done above board and legal. But we're talking about Democrats here, remember?

Critics say Trump's wiretap claim is baseless, but what is truly lacking in solid evidence is the claim that there was some sort of collusion between Trump or his aides and Russian officials to hijack the election. Yet that's all Trump's foes (and much of the press) want to talk about. Remember, too: Team Obama has a record of abusing power for political gain, as when the IRS targeted conservative groups.

At this point, it's hard to know for sure if Trump Tower was actually bugged, and if so, who authorized the tapping and why. But given Team Obama's record,  and the never-ending bid to overturn the election, there's little doubt why Trump might think the worst."
