    Ex-CIA director on wiretap claim: Trump apparently ‘forgot that he was president


    “It looks as if the president just for a moment forgot that he was president,” Hayden said on Fox News on Monday. “Why didn’t he simply use the powers of the presidency to ask the acting director of national intelligence, the head of the FBI, to confirm or deny the story he apparently read from Breitbart the evening before?

    Hayden, a critic of Trump during the campaign, has served in national security roles in both Democratic and Republican administrations. In addition to the top job at the CIA, he has served as director of the National Security Agency and as principal deputy director of national intelligence ...

    Ex-CIA director on wiretap claim: Trump apparently ‘forgot that he was president’

    As Washington continues to reel from President Trump’s evidence-free assertion that his phones were wiretapped by former President Barack Obama before the election, former Central Intelligence Agency director Michael Hayden says it seems Trump...

    Has Trump Lost It?
    It is hard to understand how President Donald Trump benefits from his latest Twitter rant

    ... Meanwhile, Republican Senators Marco Rubio and Tom Cotton said Sunday they had seen no evidence to support Trump’s claims. Republican Senator Lindsay Graham said Saturday, “If the former president of the United States was able to obtain a warrant lawfully to monitor Trump’s campaign for violating the law, that would be the biggest scandal since Watergate” ...

    He's reckless in his comments and actions. No he does not know what it means to have any class at all. He's acting like any other dude on the street. He says what he wants regardless if it has any merit at all. He's shameful.

    It didn’t last long.

    Noah Feldman: Trump’s wiretap tweets raise risk of impeachment

    ... But if the allegation is not true and is unsupported by evidence, that too should be a scandal on a major scale; this is the kind of accusation that, taken as part of a broader course of conduct, could get the current president impeached. We shouldn't care that the allegation was made early on a Saturday morning on Twitter, that's when Trump wrote: "How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process, this is Nixon/Watergate, bad (or sick) guy!" ...

    Tracing where President Trump gets some of his news

    ... Trump's tweets appear to come from a mix of conservative sources, as seems the case with his Saturday tweets of an unsubstantiated allegation that President Obama tapped his phones before the election. A Breitbart News article highlighting similar allegations made on a recent episode of conservative radio host Mark Levin's program was circulating in the West Wing the day before the president tweeted the charges about Obama, sources told ABC News ...

    This is where alternative facts fail Trump

    A lot of ordinary Americans will be on the losing side of Trump’s propaganda if they base important decisions based on what he’s promising, he says he’s going to “bring back our jobs,” as if steelworker and textile jobs from the 1980s or 1990s have just gone on vacation and will soon rematerialize in their original form. Many economists say this will never happen, because the jobs of yore barely exist in a world of robots, algorithms and thinking machines ...

    This is where alternative facts fail

    You might be able to win a Twitter battle with alternative facts, as President Trump has arguably demonstrated. Trump’s latest dubious assertion is that President Obama ordered the phones tapped at the Trump campaign’s headquarters last year....

    I am really curious to see how these allegations are going to play out. It seems it's all of a sudden been pretty quiet. I think his people know how serious this allegation is and are keeping a lower profile. I hope he gets nailed to the stake. Impeached. He can't just get away with this.
