Donald Trump is now accusing President Obama of tapping his phones.

Okay as of right now most news outlets have no freaking idea what Trump is talking about here.

Now it is possible that somebody brought an article written by our friend Louise Mensch back in November to Trump's attention.

Here is the article:  

Two separate sources with links to the counter-intelligence community have confirmed to Heat Street that the FBI sought, and was granted, a FISA court warrant in October, giving counter-intelligence permission to examine the activities of ‘U.S. persons’ in Donald Trump’s campaign with ties to Russia. 

Contrary to earlier reporting in the New York Times, which cited FBI sources as saying that the agency did not believe that the private server in Donald Trump’s Trump Tower which was connected to a Russian bank had any nefarious purpose, the FBI’s counter-intelligence arm, sources say, re-drew an earlier FISA court request around possible financial and banking offenses related to the server. The first request, which, sources say, named Trump, was denied back in June, but the second was drawn more narrowly and was granted in October after evidence was presented of a server, possibly related to the Trump campaign, and its alleged links to two banks; SVB Bank and Russia’s Alfa Bank. While the Times story speaks of metadata, sources suggest that a FISA warrant was granted to look at the full content of emails and other related documents that may concern US persons.

As you can see this talks about a FISA court request from the FBI concerning one particular server.

The fact that they would have needed a warrant of course means that this is NOT, in any way, like what Nixon did during his administration, nor does it necessarily suggest that the FBI was allowed to tap Trump's phones.

What DO know is that American intelligence agencies WERE tracking the phone calls coming in and out of Russia and that THAT was how they found out that a number of Trump's campaign staff and administration staff had been in contact with certain unsavory folks connected to the Russian government.

Apparently Trump's current freakout is linked to Mark Levin's radio show where he cited these articles and then exaggerated what they said to suggest that the Obama Administration used "police state" tactics to undermine the Trump campaign.
Remember Trump only trusts Right Wing news outlets and talk shows that make shit up, or exaggerate facts to fit their agenda.

I think Trump has really rounded the bend on this one.

    It’s unclear whether Trump had any proof to substantiate the allegations or if he was referencing a classified briefing. However, some media outlets have suggested he sourced the information from an article that the far-right website Breitbart News ran Friday, claiming that Obama “sought, and eventually obtained, authorisation to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign.” Steve Bannon left his position as Breitbart executive chairman to become the CEO of Trump’s campaign. Bannon is now the White House chief strategist.

    1/ The wiretaps that Donald Trump "just found out" about have been reported for weeks. I'm going to summarize here some of the discussion.

    Other media commentators were keen to point out that the alleged wire taps that Trump “just found out” about had actually been reported on “for weeks.” The Guardian had reported in January how the FBI had applied for a warrant under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act on Trump associates in the summer, but was rejected.

    The Trump Foundation gave $10,000 to conservative activist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, which works closely with Breitbart and is an unofficial arm of the Trump campaign. Ironically, Project Veritas did actually attempt to infiltrate the campaign of rival candidate Hillary Clinton. It successfully infiltrated outside groups aligned with it, secretly recording and then publishing internal campaign details, which Trump used repeatedly on the stump.

      Drumpf’s Obama obsession

      The president finds his predecessor to be a convenient foil as he wades through persistent controversy.

      Donald Drumpf just can't quit Barack Obama.

      From entering politics as the chief promoter of the birtherism conspiracy—complete with claims of mysterious calls coming in to him with new information to detectives he claimed he sent to Hawaii but were never heard from again—to waking up Saturday morning tweeting, “How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones,” Obama’s always there.

      There’s a political advantage to it—Obama is just as infuriating a figure as he was six weeks ago to the Republican base and the pro-Drumpf media that powered the president’s campaign.

      And there’s a diversionary advantage to churning up a new controversy that this time takes away airtime and mindshare from the questions of just how many top administration officials had just how many undisclosed meetings with Russian officials. But there also seems to be a true sense in Drumpf’s mind that Obama is practically sitting beneath the floorboards of the West Wing, chipping away at his presidency.

      So much for Drumpf trying to make them out as buddies.

What I came away with is here is someone who may have been used by the Russians and may have been used by the Trump campaign and perhaps rather cruelly in both instances. I don’t know.”

    Bernstein said that one thing he absolutely believes is that there is a cover-up. But let’s cut to the chase here. There’s a cover-up going on. We can’t tell yet what the cover up from the Trump administration and from Mr. Flynn and Mr. Sessions, who have lied is about. But there is a cover-up going on. People are trying to keep us and investigators from knowing what all of these goings-on are about, people around Donald Trump and Russians, Russian nationals, ethno-Russians, and the campaign. That’s what all of this about.”

    He continued that he doesn’t know what it will lead to but knows that Trump and those around him, including Sessions, don’t want us to know what the truth is.

    ‘Outright personality breakdown in public view’: Internet blasts Trump for ‘tapped phones’ Twitter meltdown

    President Donald Trump’s explosive series of tweets Saturday morning, accusing ex-President Barack Obama of having the phones at Trump Tower “tapped” prior to the election, had Twitter abuzz with concerns about his state of mind — among other things.

    Early Saturday morning Trump made the startling accusations, possibly after being alerted to a Breitbart article suggesting former President Obama was conducting a “silent coup” against his administration.

    Trump went on to state, “I’d bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!” leading many to assert that Trump has now opened the door to a complete investigation into his administration’s pre-election involvement with the Russians.

    Others suggested that Trump is collapsing into paranoia in public view, with some also pointing out that that media claims that Trump’s speech where he “pivoted” to being more “presidential” are once again moot.

    A few responses below:

    'He's talking about a FISA warrant. Which was authorized by the FISC. Which is the legal process set up by Congress.'

    'So basically Trump is confirming that a federal judge ruled there was enough evidence to proceed with "tapp" of Trump Tower. '

    Donald Trump was bailed out of bankruptcy by Russia crime bosses


    Among the powerful facts that DNI missed were a series of very deep studies published in the [Financial Times] that examined the structure and history of several major Trump real estate projects from the last decade—the period after his seventh bankruptcy and the cancellation of all his bank lines of credit. ...

    The money to build these projects flowed almost entirely from Russian sources. In other words, after his business crashed, Trump was floated and made to appear to operate a successful business enterprise through the infusion of hundreds in millions of cash from dark Russian sources.

    The Trump wiretap story is more important than you realize

    ...But here’s the thing: not even the President of the United States can do that. You need a court order to tap phones.

    If Trump’s phone was tapped (and I’m quite sure it was, because Trump said so, and he never lies), then there must have been a court order. And that court order must have been based on a reasonable suspicion of wrongdoing. And it happened in October.

    So, what reasonable suspicion of wrongdoing might have been raised in October, regarding Trump? You guessed it: Russian hacking of the election. Which in turn implies that the warrant was issued by the super-secret FISA court (well-known to almost never refuse a warrant request.)

    And that means that the either the FBI, or more likely the CIA, knows a lot about what was really going on.

    And Trump knows they know, because this morning, he was briefed.

    And hoo-boy. The Trumpster is running scared.

    It looks like another Trump adviser has significantly changed his story about the GOP's dramatic shift on Ukraine

    The Trump campaign's national-security policy representative for the Republican National Convention, J.D. Gordon, told CNN on Thursday that he pushed to alter an amendment to the GOP's draft policy on Ukraine at the Republican National Convention last year to further align it with President Donald Trump's views.

    Gordon's remarks represent a dramatic shift from previous comments, and they come as Attorney General Jeff Sessions faces intense scrutiny over two previously undisclosed meetings with Russia's ambassador to the US — one of which was timed to the convention.

    In January, Gordon told Business Insider that he "never left" his "assigned side table" nor spoke publicly at the GOP national security subcommittee meeting, where the amendment — which originally called for "providing lethal defense weapons" to the Ukrainian army to fend off Russian-backed separatists — was read aloud, debated, and ultimately watered down to "providing appropriate assistance" to Ukraine.

    According to CNN's Jim Acosta, however, Gordon said that at the RNC he and others "advocated for the GOP platform to include language against arming Ukrainians against pro-Russian rebels" because "this was in line with Trump's views, expressed at a March national security meeting at the unfinished Trump hotel" in Washington, DC.

    "Gordon says Trump said at the meeting ... that he didn't want to go to 'World War Three' over Ukraine," Acosta said.

    Trump's apparent involvement in steering the language change — Gordon reportedly told CNN that "this was the language Donald Trump himself wanted and advocated for back in March [2016]" — is also at odds with what Gordon told Business Insider in January, when he said "neither Mr. Trump nor Mr. Manafort were involved in those sort of details, as they've made clear."

    Tower of FISA

    If nothing else, Trump’s tweets show he doesn’t understand how the FISA system works. If he did, he may have limited himself to tweeting about Arnold Schwartzenegger quitting The Apprentice this morning.

    “While the order would have been requested by some part of the executive branch, Obama can’t order anything. Nor can Trump,” says former NSA lawyer April Doss, who stresses that her comments are based only on public information. “The order has to come from the court, and the court operates independently.”

    FISA court judges serve seven-year appointments, so thay court’s composition doesn’t ebb and flow with the political tides. What’s more, specific laws adopted in the wake of Watergate prevent the very activity Trump accuses Obama of.

    “You can’t tap the phones of a political candidate for political purposes,” says Doss.

    Trump flashes anger over Sessions recusal, Russia stories in tense Oval Office meeting

    Before heading off to his so-called "winter White House" in Palm Beach, Florida, on Friday, President Donald Trump summoned some of his senior staff to the Oval Office and went "ballistic," senior White House sources told ABC News.

    Axelrod: Trump 'kicking up dust only adds to suspicions'

    Former Obama adviser David Axelrod slammed President Trump on Saturday for his claim that Obama ordered a wiretap of Trump Tower last year, calling Trump's claim an effort to distract from his own scrutiny.

    "This seems 'nutts.' Frantic way in which @realDonaldTrump is kicking up dust only adds to suspicions and the need for full public reckoning," Axelrod wrote on Twitter.

    'If there were the wiretap @realDonaldTrump loudly alleges, such an extraordinary warrant would only have been OKed by a court for a reason.'

    WATCH: Lindsey Graham harshly booed at town hall after saying ‘I agree mostly’ with Drumpf

    indsey Graham (R) got a rude — but maybe not unexpected reception at a town hall in Clemson — telling attendees he is trying to work with President Donald Drumpf.

    Appearing at the Saturday morning town hall, where constituents lined up hours before the start time to hear the senator who has been one of Drumpf’s biggest critics, Graham learned that even attempting to deal with Drumpf can be met with disfavor.

    “I’m going to try to help our president, Donald Drumpf, be as successful as possible because, number one, I agree with him mostly and I’d like to get this country moving again,” Graham said.

    Graham’s statement was met with loud and sustained boos from the audience.

    Graham’s acknowledgement that he wants to “repeal and replace Obamacare” was also met with shouts and heckling.

    Watch the video below via CNN:

    Drumpf is fucking crazy and it pisses me off to see people "wishing" he would start acting presidential. Everyone that's not batshit bonkers should be wishing Drumpf were gone, removed, somewhere else, and should be actively working for that.

    The fat orange asshole should build a tower in Russia and ensconce his fat ass in it forever, and take his pack of grifters with him.
    Graham likes Drumpf policies? Graham should be waterboarded until he confesses that he's an idiot and Drumpf is a large rodent.

      Well, Graham will never meet with constituents again. Pennsylvania's GOP senator is moving his office to the Federal Bldg. in Philadelphia which is almost impenetrable to the general public. Republican politicians only like voters when they're campaigning. The rest of the time they only want to see conservative lobbyists and fund raisers. Everyone else - becomes invisible to them.

    Is Obama’s ‘Wire Tapp’ The End Of Donald Drumpf? Maybe! A Holy-Shit-Y’all Investigation Into WTF!


    What's behind President Drumpf's angry tweets that President Obama tapped his phones

    ...There’s ... a lot to unpack here.

    First, there’s Drumpf’s allegation that President Obama was personally involved in tapping him. He’s offered absolutely no evidence of this, so there’s no reason to believe it. And early Saturday afternoon, an Obama spokesperson released a statement strongly denying the claim, saying President Obama and White House officials did not interfere with Department of Justice investigations as a “rule.”

    There’s also no indication so far that Drumpf’s phone calls were personally “tapped.” However, the question about whether “wires” and “phones” in Drumpf Tower “were tapped” before the election is much more difficult to untangle. That’s because there was and apparently still is a wide-ranging, FBI-led investigation into Drumpf associates and Russian operatives or banks. We don’t yet know the investigation’s full scope, or what it may have turned up.

    The broader political context is that potential Russia-related scandals continue to dog the young administration, as this week’s controversy involving Attorney General Jeff Sessions makes clear — and that the president himself is still trying to figure out how to best respond.

    Many details of the investigation into Drumpf associates and Russia remain unknown
    The most likely explanation for why Drumpf is suddenly making the claim that “wires” and “phones” in Drumpf Tower “were tapped” in October isn’t that he got some new government briefing. It’s that he became aware of a recent Breitbart article on how the Obama administration may have been trying to undermine Drumpf. The article, which riffs on a Mark Levin radio segment, was quoted on Fox News Saturday morning and, per the Washington Post’s Robert Costa, has been circulating among White House aides recently.

    This daisy chain of conservative media content ultimately leads to an older article from the website Heat Street, written by Louise Mensch. The article reports that, in October, federal investigators got a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court warrant “to examine the activities of ‘U.S. persons’ in Donald Drumpf’s campaign with ties to Russia.” Mensch’s sources told her that a computer server in Drumpf Tower was a main focus of the investigation, and that emails may have been examined.

    Importantly, some aspects of Mensch’s report have been confirmed by other media outlets, but others have not. For instance, the BBC’s Paul Wood reported that an October FISA warrant was issued, but in his telling it was targeted at electronic records from two Russian banks.

    So we don’t yet have solid information on 1) whether servers (or phones) in Drumpf Tower were or were not tapped, 2) the evidentiary justification for any tapping that did occur, or 3) exactly whose communications might have been targeted.

    Perhaps most controversially, we don’t know whether Drumpf’s own communications may have been targeted — and if they were targeted, what the government’s evidentiary justification may have been.

    Sessions’ Recusal Complicates Drumpf-Russia Probes

    How that investigation will proceed inside the department quickly came under close scrutiny Friday by legal experts, particularly as reports spread that the Drumpf administration was rushing to purge agencies of holdovers from the Obama administration.

    Lawyers and Justice Department officials on Friday were poring through statutes and scratching their collective heads over who has authority to sign warrants for the FBI’s electronic surveillance of the Russians and Drumpf associates implicated in the probe, now that Sessions has stepped aside.

    Is Obama’s ‘Wire Tapp’ The End Of Donald Drumpf? Maybe! A Holy-Shit-Y’all Investigation Into WTF!

    Oh hey, do you remember that weird story about the servers pinging back and forth from Drumpf Tower to Russia’s Alfa Bank?

    We remember it clearly. It was Halloween, and we were sitting in the Wonkebago in a deserted RV park outside Salt Lake, and our heads were SCANNERS SPLODING from reading two stories in a row: one by David Corn at Mother Jones that first introduced The Dossier, and one by Franklin Foer at Slate about these two mysterious servers pinging each other — and each other only — back and forth from Moscow to Drumpf Tower.

    Yes. We’re back to private email servers. Fucking AGAIN.

    Within one hour, Eric Lichtblau of the august New York Times had cleared Donald Drumpf of all crimes past, present and future. Law enforcement had looked at the bank, he said, but had finally concluded it was probably spam. And that dossier? Law enforcement hadn’t found a single link between Russia and Drumpf or any of his associates.
    Lichtblau’s reporting has not aged well.

    Whoops it turns out the FBI got a FISA warrant for the Drumpf Org and Alfa Bank and all ‘US persons’ emailing each other therein

    So, Eric Lichtblau’s “law enforcement” source, who we surmised was FBI Director James Comey, may he rot in hell, may have been a tad premature! Or a little bit lie-y! Because at 10 p.m. the night before Election Day, the Rupert Murdoch-owned conservative rag “Heat Street” published a little bit of a scoopty about how, after being denied for a FISA warrant naming Donald Drumpf, the FBI had in October resubmitted a more narrowly drawn warrant, which was granted.

    Nobody really saw the story; it was the night before Election Day, there was rather a lot of other stuff going on, and Heat Street, and its editor Louise Mensch, weren’t particularly known quantities as far as national security reporting. Mensch, 45, a former Conservative MP and ’90s party girl, had married Metallica’s manager and become a Big Hater Of Russia and Big Lover Of British And American Spies — and, apparently, they return the favor!

    It was two months before BBC and McClatchy would be able to confirm Mensch’s reporting about the FISA warrant, which McClatchy wrote had been granted Oct. 15.

    "he does not have this authority precisely because of people like"> himself aka little dick donny drumpf

    "“grace under pressure” – precisely that virtue Donald Trump so profoundly proved this morning that he lacked." Former President "Barack Obama, was awarded the “Profile in Courage” award by the The John F Kennedy Library foundation"

    "Throughout his two terms in office, President Obama upheld the highest standards of dignity, decency and integrity, serving not just as a political leader, but a moral leader, offering hope and healing to the country and providing young men and women of all backgrounds with an example they can emulate in their own lives.”" Indeed, they say, “President Obama’s ENTIRE public life has exemplified the courage that John F. Kennedy celebrated.”

    "Former President Barack Obama wrote he was “humbled to be recognized by a family with a legacy of service.”

    In an apparent bid to deflect attention from the mounting controversy over whether his administration has ties to Russia, the commander-in-chief deployed his favorite weapon in the early hours of Saturday morning: dropping a Twitter bomb on the world that accuses President Obama of a conspiracy on the scale of Watergate.

    The president, whose administration is facing mounting calls for a special prosecutor to investigate Russia's effect on the election and possible ties to Drumpf associates, fired off four tweets from 6:35 a.m. to 7:02 a.m. Saturday...

    ...While of course Drumpf's assertions did not come with any evidence whatsoever, it's worth unpacking what it is that he's claiming about the previous presidential administration. If we take his claims seriously, there's either a secretive cabal involving two branches of government conspiring against Drumpf or a brute force, illegal entry was undertaken to establish surveillance on a presidential candidate.

    ...Still, Saturday's tweetstorm establishes something of a new low for a below-the-belt president with little regard for truth. Obama has long been a punching bag for conservatives who accused him of overstepping the strictures of his office, but Drumpf's claims seek to engulf the still-popular former president in what would be one of the largest political scandals in American history.

    And why? Drumpf enjoyed a day or two of somewhat positive headlines after his Tuesday address to Congress, only for those to be supplanted by headlines detailing Attorney General Jeff Sessions's decision to recuse himself from any investigations having to do with Russia and the election. The administration is once again on the defensive, and we know Drumpf greatly prefers to be on offense.

    ...If there actually had been wiretaps of any Drumpf-related phones, "that means a fed judge found probable cause of crime which means you are in deep shit," tweeted Congressman Ted Lieu of California. Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean made the same point, saying that if there were any wiretaps in place, "This means a judge found probable cause that Drumpf was engaging in criminal activity and issued a warrant for a wire tap."

    What’s at Stake When Drumpf Discredits the Press

    Donald Drumpf’s relentless media bashing has become one of the most persistent tropes of his cacophonous early time in office. He and his administration have called the press an “enemy of the people,” slammed leading media outlets as purveyors of “fake news,” dealt harshly with individual reporters at press conferences, excluded leading outlets like the New York Times and CNN from White House press briefings and promised that it will “get worse every day” for the “corporatist” and “globalist” media. Drumpf’s treatment of the press has editors, journalists and media freedom advocates rattled, shattering conventional understandings of an adversarial but mostly respectful relationship of leaders to the press in free countries where the so-called fourth estate is recognized as indispensable to democracy.

    But Drumpf’s assault on the media should not come as a surprise. During the campaign, he dealt capriciously and dismissively toward the press, ejecting disfavored outlets from his campaign events and launching broadsides against individual reporters including NBC’s Katy Tur whom he derided as “little Katy” and the New York Times’ Serge Kovaleski whom he mocked for a physical disability. During the campaign, though, Drumpf’s primary foil was Hillary Clinton and his most energetic demonizing was reserved for her. Drumpf was in his element during the campaign; he thrives on conflict, devoting most of his time in speeches and public statements to taking down antagonists.

    Now that Drumpf is in office the swipes at him are coming fast, furious and from all sides. Critics are after him for his blunderbuss and discriminatory travel ban, chaotic White House, dehumanizing immigration policies, blundering approach to key global alliances, shadowy ties to Russia and outright admiration for Vladimir Putin, risky healthcare strategy, plutocratic Cabinet and more. The press, reporting on all these issues, has become a proxy for plethora of Drumpf’s adversaries. Lacking appetite and aptitude to rebut the substance of each denunciation, Drumpf aims to discredit the messenger, asking his supporters to doubt everything they hear from traditional sources of news.

    While Drumpf hopes to intimidate or cajole the media into more favorable coverage, his tactics are, predictably, having the opposite effect: The press is emboldened, angry and determined not to shrink from rigorous and tough coverage of the White House. Indeed, the risk that Drumpf’s fulminations and shenanigans will actually impair the media’s ability to do its job seems relatively limited: The White House and federal agencies are rife with leakers and, history suggests, the more paranoid and insular the President becomes, the more inclined rational observers on the inside may be to blow the whistle. Nor are damaged feelings a prime concern. Insults to media outlets and reporters can become badges of honor, resulting in raised professional profiles and increased viewers and subscriptions.

    But there are three serious risks that Drumpf’s approach raises, and these must be dealt with aggressively and systematically to limit damage to the role of the press in American democracy.

    And a week ago was hen Obama showed up in NY and people went wild. It was also announced that good pal Valerie Jarrett moved into the Obamas' house and it's to be BO's headquarters for his next project and stopping the GOP gerrymandering. So, our amazing pres is back on the scene. For the past week, Trump has had his big moments that have fizzled because of BO, Sessions, the Russian thing. The news coverage has been very good, thankfully, and he's not been bale to just bask in the afterglow of his Tues speech and his appearance that had him looking so ugly in the bomber jacket. It appears that there's nothing going on at MaL that will have him making a big entrance and being worshiped by ball goers.

    I couldn't believe it when I woke up today and saw the tweet news and then read all the tweets. Trump really is insane. Who can now say that he isn't? This guy has totally lost it. Things were simmering all week and he stayed quiet, but then no longer could, even with Ivanka and Jared at Mar a Lago this weekend. All his talk about Nixon/Watergate just makes him look worse--people are associating him, not BO, with that. He doth protest too much.

    Again, little donnie shoots himself in the foot with this twitter rage.

    First he tweets about Schumer, however it turns out the gas station is owned by a russian with ties to trump, this info now made public.

    Now he accuses Obama of wiretapping his phones and not only does the info about the russian bank ties to trump come out again, after being lost in the election hype, but trump himself “reminds” the public that he is doing something illegal.

    So much for being smarter than everyone else.
