So President Trump alleged, in a Saturday morning Tweet on March 4th, 2017, that Obama and his Administration spied on him and his team during and after the November 8th, 2016 election while working at the Trump Tower in New York City.
Yet, after making those allegations, the U.S. liberal media (like CNN, the Washington Post and New York Times) and every Democrat or Democratic supporter who could get in front of a TV camera, ranted and raved all day Sunday and Monday that Trump was unhinged for making such an allegation.
That there was no proof. Yada yada yada.
The problem is that it has been some in the liberal media themselves who have written much of the proof that Trump and his team were recorded, obviously hoping they could delegitimize Mr. Trump’s win. However, it is obvious now they have been hoisted on their own petard because the proof is already out there for everyone to see if they do a Google search. And, I won’t give those sources any traffic by putting a link. Everyone knows which sources I am talking about.
Anyway, we all know that Mike Flynn, President Trump’s former National Security Advisor, was forced to resign. Why? Because he forgot he had discussed the sanctions when talking to the Russian Ambassador — and then misled the VP Mike Pence by saying he had not discussed that topic.
The key point is, how do we know what Mr. Flynn said if no one was electronically recording telephone conversations at the Trump tower? Because, remember, that is where Flynn made the call, was it not? Although, of course, the recording may have been at the Russian Ambassador’s end.
Either way, it is now public knowledge what Mr. Flynn said, word for word, in what was supposed to be a secure classified telephone call. Does that not point to someone in the Obama Administration? I mean, who else would have released that classified information?
And so, there’s the proof! No “what ifs” as one journalist said on CNN. Besides, releasing the content of the Flynn phone call to the Russian Ambassador was not an isolated incident. We also know what President Elect Trump said to such world leaders as the Prime Ministers of Australia and Taiwan. As with Flynn, how do we know that?
The crux of the matter is that there have been far too many classified leaks regarding President Elect and President Trump, and such advisors as Flynn, to deny the President’s allegation. As Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet, the Democrats and their media and pundit supporters “doth protest too much.”

Updated 9:10pm March 7, 2017 to add the sentence: “Although, of course, the recording may have been at the Russian Ambassador’s end.”
Further update March 17, 2017. Apparently the Flynn telephone call originated in the Dominican Republic — although the fact that his name and a transcript were released publicly doesn’t change the fact that the Trump transition team was under surveillance of some kind. In other words, someone in the U.S. justice or intelligence community wanted the public to know.
