Was Trump Tower Bugged?
It would not particularly surprise me, in light of what the Obama administration did to former CBS reporter Sheryl Attkisson. And in light of the IRS targeting "enemies."
What makes me most suspicious is the non-denial denials from Obama's spokesman we heard over the weekend. The language was parsed with a delicacy we have not seen since Bill Clinton opined on the meaning of "is."
We all get that the President of the United States does not have subpoena power by himself. That has to come from a court -- in this case, the FISA Court. It insults the intelligence of the American people to hide behind this technicality.
The FISA Court does not issue subpoenas on its own impulse, or as we say in the law sua sponte. Someone has to apply for the order. And if that person or entity is part of the federal executive branch, than the buck stops with whoever was president at the time: Obama.
