Clash Of The Titans


The ongoing war of words between President Trump and former President Obama is wearing me out, though I have little doubt Trump may very well be correct that he was being surveilled, if not wiretapped.

(I wrote this a couple of days before the latest round of Wikileaks came out, the “Vault 7” dump that uncovered the CIA’s surveillance techniques. In short, the gist of it was that not only could the CIA surveil someone, they could make it look like somebody else did it, like the Russians for instance. Sound familiar?)

Will we ever get down to the bottom of it? That seems to be the one thing that never seems to happen these days. The more questions there seems to be, the less answers the American public seem to get.

If the allegations are true, what can be done (or should be done) to the former President? It seems doubtful to me (though I never practiced law) that Mr. Obama could be tried criminally.

This will likely drag on in the court of public opinion for a while, as the press loves this kind of never ending nonsense. It gets tiring to watch, so I try hard these days to avoid the hysteria of cable news, and the corporations who own them.

  1. I seriously doubt President Obama ordered Trump Tower to be wire tapped. And from James Comey’s reaction, neither did the FBI, which leaves the Justice Department. Mr. Trump has basically backed himself into a corner with his latest Twitter tantrum. If the Justice Department did wiretap him, then they had a FISA warrant which means that they would have had some prettying damning evidence in order to convince the court to issue one. If it’s proven that this isn’t true, it’s further proof Of Mr. Trump’s instability and reliance on conspiracy theories. Either way, I believe with 100% certainty that Trump has libeled Obama.
