The Trump wiretaps

From Newsmax:

Ruddy to MSNBC: Trump Campaign Had 'Consensus' on Surveillance
President Donald Trump was "pretty upset" over the weekend about his belief that former President Barack Obama had targeted him, Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy said Monday, adding that he had not seen Trump with "this level of anger about something in a long time."

"I saw him twice on Saturday, once at the lunch hour and then again at dinner, and I would describe him as not being a happy camper," Ruddy told Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports."

Trump "reiterated what he said in the tweets [on Saturday morning], this is Watergate level stuff. This is McCarthyism, it was very bad. He seemed very confident about the information he had," Ruddy said.

A bit more:

"What they're denying is that President Obama ordered the wiretaps for the surveillance, or that they targeted narrowly Trump Tower, and it indicates and that suggests that there was some level of intelligence surveillance of the campaign, which is a serious, serious matter."

Ruddy said that while a president does not have the legal authority to order wiretaps, it would be "beyond belief that President Obama would not be aware of this."

"Look, we had a situation where the Obama White House targeted conservative groups through the IRS," said Ruddy. "The leader of that unit, the IRS, was over at Obama's White House 24 times or more. She used the Fifth Amendment. They deleted and destroyed evidence and emails, and yet there was never any complaint by anyone in the media about this."

The IRS scandal was widely reported but nothing was done - nobody is serving time for their targeting of Tea Party groups (here and here). This is worse.
