Trump on Saturday accused former President Barack Obama via a Twitter post that he ordered Trump Tower to be wiretapped during the 2016 presidential election. The camp of Obama was quick to issue a strong but unclear denial. The mainstream media quickly came to the defense of their favored son Obama and pressured Trump to provide pieces of evidence to prove his claim. President Trump is confident, however, that he will be vindicated in the end and Obama's guilt will be proven.
President Trump told NewsMax CEO Christopher Ruddy in an interview that the matter will be investigated and everything will come out. Trump stressed he will be proven right in reaction to Obama's denial.
Ruddy also shared that the President is really mad over the issue and he has not seen Trump as strongly pissed off in a long time.
Ruddy also scored the biased mainstream media anew for lack of balance, fairness and insights in reporting on the controversial issue. The NewsMax head said that the news media should have focused more attention and scrutiny on the fact that neither Obama nor his administration officials deny that Trump's offices were wiretapped, only that Obama was supposedly not behind any such order. Ruddy suggested that, of course, the White House then would have known about such move.
Ruddy expressed his doubts and questions in a column. He asked: "Wouldn't it strain disbelief that a major presidential candidate's offices were wiretapped and the president was never informed?"
The issue of the Trump Tower being wiretapped during the election will be investigated by the House and Senate intel panels as part of the larger probe into the alleged Russian interference with the 2016 election.
Obama, Hillary Clinton and their Democrat allies and liberal supporters of course made a huge deal into the alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election to explain their humiliating loss to Trump. It would be truly a matter of big irony- if not ultimate hypocrisy- if it will be proven in the end that Obama and the Dems had wiretapped their closest competitor's offices during the election.
