Donald Trump has made an absolute fool of himself by accusing former President Barack Obama of tapping his phones in Trump Tower before the election. This not only backfired by inviting tons of backlash from American citizens and politicians alike, but the latest person to speak out against the spoiled, undeserving POTUS has left everyone in shock. This has certainly never happened before.
It’s just been reported that FBI Director James Comey has requested that the Justice Department deny Trump’s accusations, resulting in an unprecedented move in which the America’s highest law enforcement official is basically calling Trump a liar – which we all know to be true.
According to The New York Times, Comey stated that Trump’s claims, which were made on Twitter, were false and should be challenged. Obama’s team has also stated that the allegations were ‘simply false’. Trump had tweeted:
‘Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!’
That pretty much sums Trump’s insanity up in one tweet.
Unfortunately, the Department of Justice is ignoring Comey so far and will not release a statement following his request, despite the fact that what Trump is implying is ridiculous and he has no evidence to back it up. Comey’s justification for shutting down Trump’s claim is that the accusations imply that the FBI had broken the law.
For an FBI Director to make a move like this against a sitting president only further proves how disastrous Trump is for the country and how disgraceful and dishonest his actions have been. Trump deserves every bit of backlash and resistance he gets over his accusations – to accuse a former president of conspiring against him is a serious offense, and it deserves to be challenged.
