Former Bush AG Confirms “Trump Probably Right About Surveillance”
Former Bush AG Confirms “Trump Probably Right About Surveillance” by Tyler Durden
TDC Note – The Obomba regime has such squeaky-clean record it’s hard to believe any of the people on his “team” would conduct themselves in less than lawful manner. Oh, wait, Obomba’s will be shown as one of the most, if not the most, corrupt regime to ever occupy the White House. Of course, the Russians will be blamed once it is confirmed Trump Tower was in fact wire tapped, right?
Following Obama’s quasi-denial, Clapper’s outright denial, and Mark Warner’s “reckless” perspective on Trump’s ‘wiretap’ accusations, none other than former George W. Bush Attorney General Michael Mukasey has come to the president’s defense, explaining that Trump is likely correct that there was surveillance on Trump Tower for intelligence purposes.
The twists and turns of this ‘whodunnit’ continue as former intelligence officials and former presidents point fingers at each other with varying levels of denial.

This morning also saw the senior Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee call President Donald Trump’s tweeted allegations that the Obama administration had wiretapped Trump Tower without revealing evidence “very reckless.” Sen. Mark Warner says,
“This feels like an attempt where the president is trying to distract us by throwing out unsubstantiated information.”
But as The Hill reports, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey on Sunday told ABC’s “This Week”:
“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, who served as the attorney general under former President George W. Bush, said he believes there was surveillance on Trump Tower after reading certain news reports.
