Congressman reminds Trump that his wiretapping claims are self-incriminating

In a Saturday morning Twitter rant, a California congressman pointed out that if President Trump‘s accusations about Trump Tower being wiretapped are true, then it’s likely that he’s in some very “deep sh*t.”

Early Saturday morning, Trump raised a few eyebrows with his unsubstantiated claim that Barack Obama tapped his phones prior to the 2016 election.

“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” Trump tweeted, adding, “Is it legal for a sitting President to be ‘wire tapping’ a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!

Based on the accusations, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) said that if true, it may be time for Trump to get a lawyer.

“Mr. President: If there was a wiretap at Trump Tower, that means a fed judge found probable cause of crime which means you are in deep sh*t,” Lieu wrote.

Many see the accusations as a new chapter regarding Trump’s infamous problems with reality. Posting to his News And Guts Facebook page, veteran journalist Dan Rather characterized Trump’s accusations as coming from someone who’s “swirling around the storm drain of scandal.”

“There is nothing more dangerous than a cornered and wounded animal,” Rather wrote.

“As the world closes in on President Donald Trump with a Russian investigation that is billowing so much smoke that the likelihood of some sort of fire seems highly likely, an increasingly isolated and temperamentally ill-prepared presidency could descend into a level of paranoia-fueled chaos the likes of which we have never seen as a nation.”

According to NPR’s Susan Davis, a spokesperson for Obama characterized Trump’s accusations as “false.”
