One thing we can be certain of when it comes to the Donald Trump Presidency, is that it will never boring. As a man who believes in speaking his mind, you have to love some of the things that come from President Trump. You may not agree, but you must respect someone who states out loud what they are thinking and not behind anyone’s back. This is the first president that has used social media to bypass news organizations and speak directly to the people, it’s a great story and you never know what will be next.

This weekend President Trump accused the Obama administration or wiretapping Trump Towers in New York.  One should wonder where such an allegation is coming from. I don’t think that the President just woke up Saturday morning and decided to accuse the Obama administration of wiretapping. I know we have not seen any proof as of yet, but Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence under the Obama administration, James Clapper, denied there was a secret court order for surveillance at Trump Tower. Speaking on NBC’s Meet the Press, Clapper said that in the national intelligence activity he oversaw, “there was no such wiretap activity mounted against the president, the president-elect at the time, as a candidate or against his campaign.”

I always find it amazing when I hear denials, if there is no truth to it, why comment. Former Attorney General under George W. Bush, Michael Mukasey has come to the president’s defense, explaining that Trump is likely correct in claiming that there was surveillance on Trump Tower for intelligence purposes. Sen. Mark Warner, the senior Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee called President Donald Trump’s tweeted allegations that the Obama administration had wiretapped Trump Tower without revealing evidence “very reckless.” 

For something that is very reckless, there certainly has been a lot of conversation about it over the last 24 hours. In a week that saw Amazon and Apple cloud services go down, this certainly is believable. With all of the scandals surrounding the end of the Obama presidency, this would not be a total shock if it were true. The simple facts remain. 1. Hillary Clinton beat a rap that any other human being would have been put in jail. 2. We have the Russian interference in the election and many other items of note.

President Trump may not be just accusing, he may have proof. We will see how this story plays out over the next few days, but it promises to be very exciting and I imagine the calls for impeachment will be out in full force this week. You may not like Donald Trump, but he is no one’s fool and understands the ramifications of what he is saying. I will be anxiously awaiting the week ahead, stay tuned.
