There is a strange thing happening in Washington D.C. right now, as Donald Trump’s seemingly wild claims are all turning out to be true.
This has, of course, completely winded the democrats, who have spent the last year attempting to debunk every word that comes out of The Donald’s mouth and delegitimize any of the 140 characters in one of the President’s tweets.
One of Trump’s claims that was particularly bothersome for the political left was his assertion that President Obama had likely misappropriated his Presidential power for the sole purpose of spying on the Donald Trump campaign. One aspect of these claims had already been verified, as Obama colleague Susan Rice has already been implicated in a scheme to “unmask” members of the forthcoming Trump transition team in order to provide political ammunition for democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
What had really unnerved the democrats, however, was an insinuation that Obama had wiretapped key players in the Trump campaign.
Sure, this was one heck of an accusation, but Donald Trump was adamant, and refused to renege on the insinuation. Now, months later, it seems that Trump has been vindicated.
“A new report that former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was wiretapped under secret court order could bolster President Trump’s explosive March claim about surveillance under the previous administration, after months of media mockery.
“The CNN report said the surveillance of Manafort continued into early 2017, covering the period before and after the November presidential election. This reportedly covered a stretch when Manafort was known to talk to Trump, though it’s unclear whether Trump’s discussions were ever picked up.
“Also unclear is where the wiretapping occurred. Manafort has a residence in Trump Tower, as well as a home in Alexandria, Va.
“But the report has forced the media to give a second look at Trump’s widely derided claims this past March that former President Barack Obama had his ‘wires tapped’ at Trump Tower. The hashtag ‘TrumpVindicated’ was taking off on Twitter Tuesday morning.”
This revelation will likely have the democrats rethinking which battles to engage in with the President, who, no matter how wild his assertions have been, seems to repeatedly come out on top of the political pile.
This peek inside the nefarious workings of the democratic party have been eye opening to a great many Americans who, admittedly, may have believed that Trump was exaggerating when he used the term “wire tapping”. Now, instead of looking away with indifference, these once-doubtful Americans will be forced to take a good, hard look at just what it is that their government has been doing in order to shift the balance of power in D.C.
