Former Congressman says Government Wiretapped Him, could have Wiretapped Trump Too

Former Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) recently appeared on Fox News to discuss President Trump’s accusations about possibly being wiretapped, and surprisingly the very liberal Democrat said it wasn’t much of a stretch to believe that Trump was right!

Kucinich wasn’t surprised because he too was wiretapped by the federal government.

“I learned about it two years after I left office. Members of Congress ought to be aware that my experience was that my phone wasn’t safe in a Congressional office. Now, if they can do that to a member of Congress, they can certainly do it to a presidential candidate and they can do it to private citizens as well. Hello, America.

When the president raised the question of wiretapping on his phones in Trump Tower, he was challenged to prove that such a thing could happen. It happened to me.”

Trending: Fuel for Thought

If the government can wiretap a Congressman why couldn’t they wiretap a normal citizen? It’s a fair question and it should make the media think twice before condemning the President for wondering how far the Obama team went to keep him from winning the election.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
