How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
Is it legal for a sitting President to be "wire tapping" a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
Reuters: Trump alleges wire tapping by Obama during campaign
U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday accused former president Barack Obama of wire tapping him in October during the late stages of the presidential election campaign, but offered no evidence to support the allegation.
"How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!," Trump said in a series of Tweets on his Twitter account early on Saturday.
Obama's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters.
In one of the Tweets, Trump said the alleged wire tapping took place in his Trump Tower skyscraper in New York, but there was "nothing found".

WNU Editor: It looks like someone told him the news early this morning that got him really pissed-off. He is now the President with complete power over the executive .... I suspect that with his people now being placed in the government .... he had asked for this information and someone obliged. If there ever was a case for an independent investigation on this entire sordid mess .... now is the time. The media is now in over-drive that these are allegations .... no proof has been presented .... and they are right. Mind you .... they have not been that professional in the past few months running the line on Trump-Russian allegations .... reporting allegations and anonymous sources as fact .... but also offering no proof. This is a shit-storm that is going to dominate the news cycle and social media for a while.
As to what is my take on these allegations. Considering the context, accusations that the Russians had compromised then candidate President Trump, the intensity of the Presidential campaign, followed by reports that Trump officials were meeting Russian officials (as outlined by the press in the past two months) .... coupled with the war of words between President Trump and the heads of the intelligence community .... I would not be surprised if someone or someones wanted to learn more.
