Newsmax CEO Ruddy: Trump Believes Wiretaps Happened

Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy spoke with President Trump over the weekend about the president’s claim that his phones were wiretapped by former President Obama.

Ruddy described his conversation with Trump in Newsmax:

I spoke with the President twice yesterday about the wiretap story. I haven’t seen him this pissed off in a long time. When I mentioned Obama “denials” about the wiretaps, he shot back: “This will be investigated, it will all come out. I will be proven right.”

The big news Saturday after Trump’s disclosure was the fact that neither Obama nor any Obama administration officials actually denied that Trump’s offices were ever wire tapped.

Instead the press focused on the rather narrow denial that Obama himself never ordered such a wiretap. [Wouldn’t it strain belief that a major presidential candidate’s offices were wiretapped and the president was never informed?]

Concrete evidence about the wiretaps is yet to be produced. However, we do know the Obama administration spied on Fox News’ James Rosen as well as our allies including Germany and Israel.

In addition, just before leaving office Obama made sure information about Russian efforts to interfere with the election including any contacts between the Trump campaign surrogates was spread throughout the administration.

Finally, OAN reported former Obama officials say they were told the former president told them to undermine the incoming Trump administration.
