Yes for sure Obama sleezebag
March 17, 2017,8:40 pm
I am always amazed what people will believe without any proof. When the president tell us what he was talking about then we will all have the answer. My opinion is that there will be no evidence because it didn’t happen. With regards to the people around him who continue to tell lies about the Russians it’s anybodies guess.
March 12, 2017,5:46 pm
Absolutely I wouldn’t put anything past him, he is a sneaky, lying human being that wants to turn America into a muslim nation, he had the democRATS fired up and talking impeachment even before President Trump took office, so why would anyone not believe that he could and would wiretap the Trump Tower or pull any sneaky stunt to get information that might be used against Trump,
March 12, 2017,12:04 am
I’d be checking for un-authorized bugs Obama planted in the White House to keep tabs on his anticedants–as well as taking inventory to find out what he stole as souvenirs from the White House!!!
I know what I’d do; now my fellow Americans need to keep that crook accountable!!!
March 11, 2017,11:29 pm
It’s no brainer. Of course, he did. He knew if Trump was elected as the President, his legacy would be completely wiped out!! It’s happening now in front of our eyes.
March 11, 2017,9:41 pm
Mr. Sedition himself should know who did it. Every swinging penis was under his watch.
March 11, 2017,8:28 pm
Hahaha he conned you when you voted for him and is still conning you. Do any of you realize what it takes for a president to do what you are saying.? Obviously you don’t and those of you that believe anything Limbaugh has to say need a serious reality check.
March 11, 2017,8:18 pm
Correction: wire tapped
March 11, 2017,5:53 pm
No, I do not think he wore tapped his phones. I think it is a conspiracy theory and folks have run with it!!
March 11, 2017,5:50 pm
The guy should be in prison.
March 11, 2017,5:45 pm
Not directly of course. These snakes always have a different person do the dirty work and bring the results back. The intelligence community is guilty also!
March 11, 2017,4:33 pm
0f course and they should be jailed and exposed. Punish them President Trump.
March 11, 2017,4:26 pm
If the capacity to spy is available (yes the capacity has long been & is still available) a progressive/socialist WILL use it against any adversary. The past administration was comprised of progressive/socialists so the Trump Towers wire tap is a sure thing.
March 11, 2017,3:30 pm
Would President Trump give Obama grace that he showed Hillary Clinton? If he does, then taxpayer money has been wasted even investigating this thing.
March 11, 2017,3:19 pm
You all as deranged as those who support Clinton
March 11, 2017,3:10 pm
And he still may be – I think he’s the most underhanded lying complete unqualified person we’ve ever had in that office. Notice how he’s hanging around undermining the President at every stop. Even moved his sidekick into his house – why else would he do that????? So even though they do sweeps in the WH and Trump Tower – I wouldn’t put it past this creep to have spying vehicles that are undetectable so that he can see what’s going on.
March 11, 2017,2:41 pm
The most leftist administration the U.S has ever seen, will take some time to clear out all the destructive leftists holds on many political agendas and laws.
March 11, 2017,2:37 pm
Sure he did and absolutely bugged the White House.
March 11, 2017,2:19 pm
No, I don’t think OBAMA wiretapped Trump. The Justice Dept (FBI) might have, however, and probably should have, considering all the back and forth between Trump’s allies and Russia, if for no other reason than to CLEAR him of potential allegations of little things like election tampering and treason.
Tin foil hat guys, Obama’s intermediaries have found a way to circumvent the tin foil using a new technology given them by scientists from the planet Tralfamadore. RUN AWAY FAST!
March 11, 2017,2:10 pm
Indict Loretta out to lunch now.
March 11, 2017,2:01 pm
They have found FISA records of this..Levin also has proof…Buddy made a very good point of “if,” of course he did and he used intermediaries to do it.
March 11, 2017,1:55 pm
March 11, 2017,1:53 pm
The only way to prove ti would be that a cabinet officer step forward and say he directed them. Obama, while he was a State Senator nor as a US Senator ever signed one damn thing. He let others do his dirty work. The only thing that Obama has done to all of us is taken away 8 years of our lives that could have contributed happier and more productive lives. He has through bias and prejudice created so much animosity against our fellow American what it would take almost nothing to start anarchy within our own country. The worst thing to that would be that no man would have any effect on his elimination to a fellow American, there exist no race relations within our country.
March 11, 2017,1:52 pm
He used the IRS to intimidate voters and the DOJ to fund Anti-American domestic terror groups. Sold weapons to drug cartels that cost over 300 lives. He let four heroes die in Benghazi. Do you seriously have to ask this question in a poll?
March 11, 2017,1:34 pm
Does an elephant have a trunk?
March 11, 2017,1:26 pm
Of course Ovomit wire-tapped ((with the aid of Hitler-y) Trump Towers and more than likely he has wire-tapped the WH. This evil poor excuse for human flesh will do anything to try and ruin President Trump. But US DEPLORABLES HAS PRESIDENT TRUMPS BACK.
March 11, 2017,1:19 pm
Obama would do snake like moves toward our new presidents..I’m so proud of our new president, I smile all day. He makes my heart happy. You go President Trump I love you sticking to your words.
March 11, 2017,1:15 pm
OBAMA will go down in History as the President who almost destroyed America!!
March 11, 2017,1:14 pm
Any president who treated the elderly seniors luike OBAMA did will do anything dirty thatsat hes good at.
March 9, 2017,1:08 am
Dennis, thank you for being objective and not believing Trump accusation with absolutely NO evidence. Our party must have both eyes open.
Also it is possible Trump has negative Russia ties and until he releases taxes and investigated we won’t know. I won’t blindly trust Trump he has done way too many business deals that were not above board. Not honorable- not any better than a corrupt politician.
March 8, 2017,5:20 pm
Derrick and Dennis you nailed it.
Trump and camp make false claims or claims with no evidence often.
– innaguration #s
– electoral win largest
– Obama birth certificate
– bowling green massacre
– wire tapping
Until he releases his taxes I can’t start a process of trusting him.
He makes the GOP look stupid.
March 8, 2017,5:12 pm
Dennis C I agree with you.
Everyone is drinking the Trump kool aid. We nominated the wrong R candidate. He has his family in the white house as “advisers ” . That is not okay- it’s what fascists do. He is discrediting the media, that is fascism step 1. ( I realize there are false stories but it needs to be managed by supply and demand not a president)
Also Trump took the SAME stance on Israel that Obama did because Israel is violating existing LAWS by building in Palestinian territory.
People stop listening to only conservative media, listen to many sources. We all regardless of party need to avoid propaganda on either side.
Don’t adopt an us versus them mentality- if you do you have been manipulated. Love thy neighbor.
March 8, 2017,4:48 pm
Obama isn’t going anywhere . He is staying close to Washington to build a legacy . Legacy ??? Lol,, Add ten trillion to the national debt, deplete the military, Side with the Palestinians against Israel , add eight million to the Welfare rolls ( that one is a vote buyer ,clandestine) release dangerous criminals by pardons , excessive regulations in the natural energy industries to satisfy his insane love affair with ‘climate change’ at the risk of thousands losing their jobs,,,,,,,,,,,,etc.. etc.. etc.. Good bye and good riddance……
March 8, 2017,12:58 am
President Trump has access to lots of info. He is seldom wrong on issues
that are this serious. The liberals are terrified that their ‘iconic’ ex-president
might be brought down……finally!
March 7, 2017,10:40 pm
Obama always had the phone and pen, to do that job, by hiring people to set it up for him…
March 7, 2017,10:27 pm
Correction. On previous post…..it’s the FISC that looks at requests and decides if a person warrants survelliance. The FISA is the federal law and the FISC is the court that makes the decision. Guess I should have done my research first before posting. Lol! See, like I said in previous post, don’t know enough to judge. I leave it to the lawmakers and politicos to discern.
March 7, 2017,6:18 pm
I totally support Donald Trump. They keep saying that FISA would have to ok it and Obama would have to be notified. But just because Trump was wire-tapped, does that mean it was done through legal channels? I don’t know enough about these matters to judge. Perhaps it was somebody in Hillarys camp. Or it could have been anybody, for that matter, who was (and is) anti-Trump. And if true, then in Hillary’ words…it is “deplorable.”
March 7, 2017,6:10 pm
What happen to my post?????
March 7, 2017,5:47 pm
For the past 8 years Obama tried to do everything he could to destroy our country.Spying on all Americans was only a small part of his anti-American agenda.
March 7, 2017,5:04 pm
Obama did not order wiretaps. Trump offered no source, proof, nothing. If there was any evidence Republicans would be investigating with every committee there is, just like Benghazi. This is Donald’s way to take something he read from conspiracy websites that are totally false and he is so gullible he believes it. Did he check it with FBI, CIA, National Security before he tweeted? No. He is the president. He can have it checked from the best sources rather than Alt-right conspiracy sites. He has no excuse to spread lies except if he has other motives…Like distracting from his anti-American pro-Russian financial ties. He will make a lot of money from his Russian oil connections, his financial holding with US pipelines, constant weekend trip to his resorts costing US taxpayer millions each time and going into his pocket by way of his children. There is your real conspiracy that we should be investigating. Where is his financial statements and tax reports so we could say yes there is nothing there. No, he has teams of people looking into Obamas birth certificate. And you wouldn’t believe what they found. He is playing us for fools!
March 7, 2017,4:58 pm
It wouldn’t surprise me if Osama, er, I mean Obama, DID wiretap President Trump. BUT, I doubt that Obama is THAT stupid. He is arrogant and aloof, for sure, but not stupid enough to do that.
March 7, 2017,12:58 pm
Just look at what that S.O.B. did to our COUNTRY in
8 years, & we are expected to believe that he didn’t
wire tap Trump Tower? Are we stupid, or what????
March 7, 2017,1:20 am
Obama has no conscience, so they will find the goods on him, from what I have seen they won’t have much trouble. he should have been impeached along time ago for treason.
March 6, 2017,11:57 pm
Is there any doubt about the wiretap, obama was determined that hillary would be the next president so he had to find a way to keep up what Trump was doing, that means he would do anything to justify spying on the Trump campaign
March 6, 2017,11:51 pm
Like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama is a psychopathic liar as proven many times when they lied, e.g., passing Obamacare, Benghazigate, etc., etc. The poll above proves that nine out of 10 people knows that he is a chronic liar.
March 6, 2017,10:31 pm
Here is the hyperlink to the article below on Obamagate!
Check it out!
March 6, 2017,10:28 pm
Obama has wiretapped many people before. See the list below. Clapper is a known, proven liar. Don’t believe what he says because he is not credible.
This is now being referred to as Obamagate!
It is not unfounded that former President Obama would wire tap President Trump during the election process. This is because he has done this before. Here is a list of individuals who were wire tapped by the Obama Administration:
WikiLeaks released the following list on February 23rd (see link here) of Obama Administration wire taps:
* The US National Security Agency bugged a private climate change strategy meeting; between UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin;
* Obama bugged Chief of Staff of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for long term interception targetting his Swiss phone;
* Obama singled out the Director of the Rules Division of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Johann Human, and targetted his Swiss phone for long term interception;
* Obama stole sensitive Italian diplomatic cables detailing how Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu implored Italy’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to help patch up his relationship with US President Barack Obama, who was refusing to talk to Netanyahu;
* Obama intercepted top EU and Japanese trade ministers discussing their secret strategy and red lines to stop the US “extort[ing]” them at the WTO Doha arounds (the talks subsequently collapsed);
* Obama explicitly targeted five other top EU economic officials for long term interception, including their French, Austrian and Belgium phone numbers;
* Obama explicitly targetted the phones of Italy’s ambassador to NATO and other top Italian officials for long term interception;
* Obama intercepted details of a critical private meeting between then French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Merkel and Berluscon, where the latter was told the Italian banking system was ready to “pop like a cork”.
In addition to the above list we also know now that Obama wire tapped various individuals in the US media that were reporting information not flattering to the Obama Administration. It is widely known that Obama’s Justice Department targeted journalists with wiretaps in 2013:
* In 2013 the liberal Washington Post expressed outrage after the revelation that the Justice Department had investigated the newsgathering activities of a Fox News reporter as a potential crime in a probe of classified leaks. The reporter, Fox News’ James Rosen and his family, were part of an investigation into government officials anonymously leaking information to journalists. Rosen was not charged but his movements and actions were tracked.
* Also in 2013, members of the Associated Press were also a target of the surveillance. The ultra liberal New Yorker even noted that “In moderate and liberal circles, at least, the phone-records scandal, partly because it involves the dear old A.P. and partly because it raises anew the specter of Big Brother, may well present the most serious threat to Obama’s reputation.”
* Reporter Sharyl Attkisson said in 2014 that her personal computer and CBS laptop were hacked after she began filing stories about Benghazi that were unflattering to the Obama administration. A source who checked her laptop said the hacker used spyware “proprietary to a government agency,” according to an article in the New York Post.
Update – WikiLeaks tweeted overnight that the Obama Administration spied on their journalists as well:
Obama is no stranger to wire tapping. His administration tapped phones and computers of friends and foe alike.
March 6, 2017,10:27 pm
stick together and support Trump as he is fighting the pit of vipers….vote out the trash that is poisoning our culture…..clean out the DOJ……..they show they are not trustworthy……if he had a full cabinet, he could be more effective
March 6, 2017,10:05 pm
Are you kidding? That political hack believes that he can get away with anything including treason and revolution.
March 6, 2017,9:35 pm
You bet he had something to do with it! Why are they trying so hard to disrupt? What are they hiding? Are they afraid Sessions will uncover more wrong doing than we already know about? The slush fund may be the tip of the iceberg.
March 6, 2017,9:13 pm
Who doubts it? Not I.
March 6, 2017,8:45 pm
@POTUS44 Obomma Bin Lyin has been a criminal President & has lied to We The People throughout his Presidency.
As far as I & many many many people I know think Obomma was nothing but a TOKEN President established by George Soros the DNC & Bill Ayers to get the black vote & assure 2 terms as well as impress leaders of other countries.
His Legacy will show many ILLEAGLE schemes, lies & manipulation of the people.
WORST POTUS EVER.
March 6, 2017,8:21 pm
Hey, Mike, your comments have all the indications that they were made by a totally misguided member of that infamous party of the democrats!! It never ceases to amaze me how you democrats can come up with so much of that stuff I refer to as total “B. S.”!! Besides that, you are a bunch of “losing crybabies”!!
March 6, 2017,7:50 pm

And your man, Obama, was a total failure as president!! Boo Hoo, Hillary got thrown “under the bus” and now she’s a “nobody”!! I said obama is a “nobody”!!

March 6, 2017,7:46 pm
Just what did the Russians supposedly do to interfere with this election except perhaps the Wikileaks? The vote count was not disrupted or altered according to testimony by Clapper. Please detail, because I have not read anything specific.
March 6, 2017,7:26 pm
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Hussein Obama wire-tapped the TRUMP TOWER!! Why would TRUMP make such an allegation if it were not true?? Donald TRUMP is now the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES and the COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF ITS ARMED FORCES!! Obama is now a “nobody” (except to the totally misguided members of that infamous “party of the democrats”) after 8 miserable years during which time he rarely “occupied” the Oval Office!! Those democrats seem to be totally unaware of the principles upon which our great country was founded!!! Obama should be punished because of this evil deed, and TRUMP had the responsibility to make it public knowledge!!
March 6, 2017,7:25 pm
Nothing would surprise me anymore when it comes to progressives trying to undermine this federal constitutional republic. Look no further then President Obama’s background and previous and current associates and you can see why President Trump may have a legitimate reason to ask for further inquiry from Congress. The thought that the government can surveil any and all Americans is chilling.
March 6, 2017,7:23 pm
Lynch ordered it thru him thru Hillary.. no doubt about it. An atty gen. Can order wire tap.. but their all so crooked they won’t side with POTUS. Their scum.. he has to start banging heads together. Their pulling out all the stops so he has to do it too..
March 6, 2017,7:19 pm
Most likely! All he does is lie, lie, lie!
March 6, 2017,6:53 pm
Of course he did. Hussein obama has no class or shame.
March 6, 2017,6:18 pm
Obama wiretapped President TRUMP’s TRUMP tower
and listened at his enjoyed leisure
because he knows he’ll never even see/feel handcuffs
Obama relishes in his international diplomatic immunity
because there is no US Washington politician
that will disturb Obama’s unequivocal license to try to
dismember President TRUMP’s US Presidency!!!
March 6, 2017,6:17 pm
Ignorance is a choice! The media and the people need to stay on the Russia story. Trump and Bannon are nothing but disrupters. They try to change the narrative of anything against their agenda. They did it in Trumps campaign and their doing it to the America now. We the people need to dig in and hold our ground. “Gaslighting is a form of manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or members of a group, hoping to make targets question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying, it attempts to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target’s belief.” This is when we need real Americans to stand up and fight for our country.
March 6, 2017,6:07 pm
For 8 years, GOP opposed Obamacare every step. Now GOP expects Dems to cooperate. It won’t happen. We need term limits in Congress.
March 6, 2017,6:00 pm
Easily proven. Court order required. Another Trump tactic to get attention away from Russia election issue.
March 6, 2017,5:58 pm
of course Obomit wire tapped Trump and he also emailed Hitler-y about it too so she knew. They are both liberal, frauds, criminals and evil people.
March 6, 2017,5:48 pm
I am almost positive Obama DID!! i do not know how, but I have a feeling!
March 6, 2017,5:45 pm
When will all this crap about President Trump cease!! Listen up you liberal fools!!! We the People have spoken !! We the People have voted our choice!! Donald J. Trump..if you don’t like it do leave take all nay sayers with you!!!!!
March 6, 2017,5:31 pm
I believe Obama did wiretap Trump tower before the election!! As for the damn Leak’s need I say more?? As far as I’M concerned Obama should be tried for treason!!!
March 6, 2017,5:24 pm
Incredible the democrats & leftists sabotage the legitimacy of the elections because they LOST
March 6, 2017,5:10 pm
Yes he did it. Obama has two face.
March 6, 2017,5:10 pm
Obama is one LYING CHEATING DISHONEST MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD MEMBER ASSHOLE, who was playacting as our President, for 8 God Damn years, and his primary goal in the White House, was to destroy America. Is there any question in your mind, that he wiretapped the Trump Tower. He is so dishonest, you should not even have a question. Earl J. Wiesen firstname.lastname@example.org
March 6, 2017,5:02 pm
They Lied about Benghazi,& did lie about conservatives being investigated by IRS. Liberal Media won’t be able to cover up much longer for Obama & Hillary.
March 6, 2017,5:00 pm
To all the bill’s, tamara and that are supporting the idiot obozo, their is nothing unfounded, nor undignified about what Trump has said!!
Who does he have for support, the media???? The leaders in fake news and sore losers, that they are!!???
Trump has around 95 million followers on social media, why does he need to attempt to get the lying media to report fairly on him? He has a straight conduit to the American people, one which the media will keep crying about, all the while lying and making up nonsense by constantly quoting him our of context or just plain falsely!!
This is not a theory, it will be shown to be correct! Even the NYT has posted stories collaborating his contention! 🙂
Watch Mark Levin, he lines it all out with news stories from a half dozen liberal left commie papers!!
So don’t be idiots, keep whining about Trump if you like, but the majority of people in the United States like what he is doing, what he has done and where he wants to take the country and the majority of people in the United States!
Just remember, he has no illegal email activity like the clintons have, and just stop being sore the media you want to listen to, was so completely wrong about the election! However, the left has been long for years now and the election results keep showing it! 🙂
March 6, 2017,5:00 pm
DAMN RIGHT HE DID ! PUT HIM IN JAIL WITH HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS TO COZY UP !
March 6, 2017,4:53 pm
Mark Levin has the proof that Obama did wiretap Trump
March 6, 2017,4:52 pm
Trump’s allegation, completely unfounded, is outrageous. His behavior, including this tweeting nonsense, is beneath the dignity of the high office he holds He cannot keep going off repeating crazy conspiracy theories like this
March 6, 2017,4:48 pm
Obama should be wearing an orange jump suit right now.
March 6, 2017,4:39 pm
Listen to Mark Levin. He has the proof and timeline regarding wiretapping President Trump.
Look into the history how little Barry won his political seat = underhanded.
March 6, 2017,4:34 pm
“THE ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS DEMOCRATS?” NOOOOOOOO! What would have really been a surprise is if they didn’t! AND THERE IS NO DOUBT THEY DID IT BECAUSE THEY GOT THE FISA REQUEST APPROVED THE SECOND TIME, AND CONTINUED TAPPING HIM EVEN LONG AFTER NOTHING SHOWED UP!
March 6, 2017,4:32 pm
That comment does not deserve an answer.
The Demorats have lost their minds since Trump won. They are capable of doing anything to undermine Trump, that’s a fact.
March 6, 2017,4:28 pm
Yes, Obama did all he could to get rid of Trump. I am a Trump supporter!
March 6, 2017,4:25 pm
Remember with no proff or cited sources it’s fake news. If a Trump demands that from the press we must demand it from him.
March 6, 2017,3:26 pm
“It is time for Democrats to stop resisting. That is their term. ‘Resist, Resist.’ They have to do, finally, what’s right for the American people, but probably we’ll do it ourselves because today we won 51-50 and didn’t get one Democratic vote. Think of that.”
“I would discourage the president of the U.S. and whoever is advising him, from what appears to be this effort to slowly, or maybe not so slowly, push Jeff Sessions out the door.”
