After Donald Trump claimed President Obama had tapped Trump’s phones prior to the 2016 election, a congressman from California, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), tweeted if that’s true, if Trump’s phone calls were tapped, Trump is in “deep shit” and may want to lawyer up because that would mean a federal judge would have found probably cause of a crime. A little later in the day, Lieu also tweets that Trump’s admission will be the catalyst to a congressional probe.
Backing up, here are screenshots of Trump’s Saturday morning Twitter spews. (Screenshots because why give him more page views? Terrible!)
Keith Pickering’s story. He was on to something early on. And Tom Boggioni with Raw Story writes that it was a Breitbart article that had accused Obama of orchestrating a “silent coup” against the administration, which prompted Trump’s reaction, even though Trump has no proof of his assertions.
Here are Lieu’s tweets from Saturday morning:
Latest tweet by Lieu:
Trump’s explosive admission of #wiretap at Trump Tower means Congress must appoint special prosecutor to review what was learned from taps.
On his Twitter page, Lieu describes himself:
Husband of Betty, the love of my life. Father of two great kids. USAF veteran. Member of Congress. In that order. Also, I don’t take orders from Vladimir Putin.California
Kudos to Congressman Lieu, on many levels. More of this, please.
