More and more people are coming out in support of Trump’s accusation against Obama wiretapping Trump Tower. Even Bush era officials are backing Trump’s statement.

The Hill reports:
Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey on Sunday said that President Trump is likely correct that there was surveillance on Trump Tower for intelligence purposes, but incorrect in accusing former President Barack Obama of ordering the wiretapping.
“I think he’s right in that there was surveillance and that it was conducted at the behest of the attorney general — at the Justice Department,” Mukasey told ABC’s “This Week.”
Trump on Saturday accused Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower in New York City just before the November election.
A spokesman for Obama denied that the former president or the White House ordered any such surveillance.
“A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice,” Kevin Lewis said in a statement.
“As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen,” Lewis added. “Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”
So – just to clarify – the entirety of America should be demanding a full investigation into Trump-Russian connections (on the basis of nothing more than conjecture) but President Trump’s demand for an investigation into an internal surveillance of an American citizen (himself) is “baseless” and “deeply disturbing.”
This is why Liberalism is a mental disorder.
