Type: Conspiracy TheoriesMar 04 2017 Severity: Targeted: Barack Obama
In the first of a series of tweets from Donald Trump aimed at Barack Obama, Trump begins a conspiracy theory that while President Obama was in office, he had ordered an illegal wiretap of Trump Tower, during the election. Trump tweeted outrage, calling this 'Terrible!' and that it was 'McCarthyism!'. He also tweeted that he 'just found out that Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory', but provided zero evidence to support this serious allegation.
