The Mainstream Media and other enemies of the current President are challenging the proposition that President Obama wire tapped President Donald Trump during the 2016 Presidential race.

President Trump started this discussion with his tweets over the weekend.

In his first tweet President Trump tweeted:

Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

In his final of four tweets concerning the wire tapping, the President tweeted:

How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

This is now being referred to as Obamagate!

it is not unfounded that former President Obama would wire tap President Trump during the election process. This is because he has done this before. We reported on Monday that the Obama Administration wire tapped more than a dozen individuals or groups who were wire tapped by former President Obama.

In addition to the list below, Obama was accused of wire tapping the House of Representatives cloak room in 2013 as well.

Congressman Devin Nunes (speaking to Hugh Hewitt) : No, I absolutely do not, especially after this wiretapping incident, essentially, of the House of Representative. I don’t think people are focusing on the right thing when they talk about going after the AP reporters. The big problem that I see is that they actually tapped right where I’m sitting right now, the Cloak Room.

Here is our list from Monday starting with a list from WikiLeaks (see link here):

* a private climate change strategy meeting between UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin;
* Chief of Staff of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for long term interception targetting his Swiss phone;
* The Director of the Rules Division of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Johann Human, and targetted his Swiss phone for long term interception;
* Sensitive Italian diplomatic cables relating to Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu;
* Top EU and Japanese trade ministers discussing their secret strategy and red lines to stop the US “extort[ing]” them at the WTO Doha arounds (the talks subsequently collapsed);
* Five other top EU economic officials for long term interception, including their French, Austrian and Belgium phone numbers;
* The phones of Italy’s ambassador to NATO and other top Italian officials for long term interception; and
* Details of a critical private meeting between then French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Merkel and Berluscon, where the latter was told the Italian banking system was ready to “pop like a cork”.

In addition to the above list we also reported that Obama wire tapped various individuals in the US media that were reporting information not flattering to the Obama Administration. It is widely known that Obama’s Justice Department targeted journalists with wiretaps in 2013:

* Fox News’ James Rosen and his family, were part of an investigation into government officials anonymously leaking information to journalists. Rosen was not charged but his movements and actions were tracked.
* Members of the Associated Press were also a target of the surveillance in a phone-records scandal.
* Reporter Sharyl Attkisson said in 2014 that her personal computer and CBS laptop were hacked after she began filing stories about Benghazi that were unflattering to the Obama administration. A source who checked her laptop said the hacker used spyware “proprietary to a government agency,” according to an article in the New York Post.
* WikiLeaks also tweeted that the Obama Administration spied on their journalists as well.

Obama is no stranger to wire tapping. His administration tapped phones and computers of friends and foe alike.
