After six weeks of nonstop politics, engaged citizens on both sides of the political spectrum may have wished for a peaceful weekend free of news from Washington D.C. Too bad for them! On Saturday morning, President Trump unleashed a tweet storm accusing his predecessor of tapping his phone in the month prior to the election.

Let’s review what President Trump is claiming. He writes that “Obama has had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower,” that the tap happened “in October, just prior to Election,” and, most importantly, that an application for a wiretap had been “(t)urned down by court earlier.”

President Trump did not provide evidence to support these claims, and he may be making up facts about an application for a wiretap. But let’s take him at his word for three important reasons.

First, if law enforcement officials unsuccessfully applied for a wiretap, as Trump claims, then a government document exists in which federal law enforcement officers swear under penalty of perjury that there was probable cause to believe that Trump had or would commit a serious federal crime. Both liberals concerned with presidential overreach and conservatives concerned about misdeeds of the prior administration would like to see such a document.
