President Trump Alleges Obama Administration "Wire-Tapped" Him Before his Election Victory

  • US President Donald Trump has accused erstwhile Obama administration of wiretapping and spying on Trump Tower in October 2016, in the final days of election. He went on to label the act as McCarthyism and compared it to Nixon/Watergate. Former US President Barack Obama’s spokesperson, Kevin Lewis, called the allegations false. President Trump said that "a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact" in a series of tweet, opening up strong possibility of a judicial investigation into the matter. Republican Senator Ben Sasse called the allegations serious and asked the President to explain about the same and the way he came to know about it.
