They weren't wiretapping Trump Tower but

they were probably wiretapping Russian officials and maybe caught Trump campaign officials talking with the Russians. That could be what Trump is afraid of coming out.

1. Exactly

The Trumps are so incompetent they stepped right in it.
Again and again.

2. As soon as a citizen comes on the line, IC must hang up.

Not allowed to listen in to US citizen without FISA warrant.

3. We keep hearing about FISA requests being made by Obama.

Could that be the reason?

10. Hearing about that from whom?

You mean 45 says that Obama was requesting FISA warrants?

13. I've heard several people online and on tv referring to a FISA requests that were denied at first

and then allowed after being narrowed down. This has been talked about so much in the last 3-4 days, it's hard to keep track of sources. It might all be right wing fever dreams for all I know.

16. The FBI made a request in June (I think), was denied, made narrower request in Oct., gained it.

I think those are the dates and I'm pretty sure it was the FBI.

18. The FBI can ask.

 

Then again, they listen to everything and do not need warrants to do it. That was the point of whistleblowers going back 20 years.

4. Even if they hung up

 

the call would be logged and the names of the parties recorded. You don't need the text of the conversation to prove that Trump campaign officials had contact with the Russians.

9. True. And if there is probable cause, they get the warrant. NT

8. Exactly. They have to have a warrant.

Yet the IC is saying there is no warrant for what 45 is talking about.

17. Not correct. They have to stop listening. Not "hang up".

5. He keeps confusing "wiretaps" with the micro transmission devices

that were implanted in his teeth during his last alien anal probe. Alex Jones told him all about it.

since he rents to the Russian mob.

"It was just locker talk."

14. 45 has been in contact with Russia

for 30 years, and yes he keeps on denying he has never spoke to putin. Liar.

Manafort lives in the same building too.

19. You have to keep in mind that Trumpophiles are just like their fearless leader.

They thrive on conspiracy theories so they will believe any of the that the Trumpenfeuhrer throws at them.
I had a neighbor who thought that way a long time ago when it was basically harmless, so I would just nod and say "wow". I knew there was no point in trying to convince her of anything.
