Uh-oh. Don't look now, but suddenly it's not so funny is it? CNN is reporting that the FBI DID
wiretap Trump's one time campaign manager Paul Manafort both during and after the election. Guess where Manafort's office was? Come on, you can say it, we all know...Trump tower. Guess who waltzed in and out of that office from time to time...That's right Trump.
CNN is hemming and hawing about semantics and the definition of "wiretapping" but suddenly Trump's claim is not so far fetched any more.
I really liked Julian Assange's tweet quoted by CNN in this opening to their story:
(CNN)In the immediate aftermath of CNN's bombshell reporting Monday night that the FBI had wiretapped one-time Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Trump allies -- and some people affiliated with the WikiLeaks efforts -- argued that the reporting was proof that the President's much-covered March tweet about being wiretapped had been proven right.
This tweet, from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was typical of that reaction:Trump: I was "wire tapped"CNN: Haha. That idiot @realDonaldTrump thinks he was wiretapped.
..Six months later..CNN: Trump was wiretapped http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/19/politics/ ... index.html
Things under Obama got a lot worse before they started to get better – and they only started to get better after the GOP took over half of Congress and put the brakes on spending.
