Donald Trump still wrongly thinks President Barack Obama wiretapped him in Trump Tower: Lewandowski book

Published

Corey Lewandowski’s new book revealed that President Donald Trump still believes that former President Barack Obama wiretapped him in Trump Tower, Maggie Haberman reported for the New York Times.

Trump made the allegation just months after taking office in 2017.

According to an interview Lewandowski and David Bossie, Trump still believes what he said on Twitter, despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.

“Two informal advisers to President Trump aims to buttress his claim that he is the victim of a vast conspiracy inside the federal government,” Haberman wrote for The Times.

Neither Trump nor his allies have offered any proof of the claims and former FBI Director James Comey testified under oath that he has no information to support the president’s claim. Trump’s own Justice Department also was unable to find anything to substantiate the claim.

Former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort was wiretapped, but not during the time that he was serving in Trump’s campaign and not through Trump himself at Trump Tower.

The former federal prosecutor says Trump committed a blunder by denying a call with a Gordon Sondland staffer.

"Why is that?" Todd asked.

"Because he now can’t rebut it," Weissman replied.

"He has now said I don’t remember that phone call. So you’re going to have Sondland testifying to it. You’re going to have a staffer testifying to it," he explained. "If [Trump] doesn’t like their testimony, he’s going to have to say, 'Oh, now I remember that I didn’t say that.'"

Republicans want Americans to believe Trump cared deeply — about something he never mentioned

Published

on

One of the main points made by Republicans during the House hearings on the impeachment claimed that President Donald Trump cared so deeply about corruption in Ukraine that he was holding back the funding.
