All the hysteria that was caused by President Trump’s tweet last spring when he claimed that the Obama administration was wiretapping his team? Well, it took a few months, but here’s the VINDICATION.
The leftists went nuts mocking President Trump’s tweet in March about ‘wiretapping’, but a new report says that a member of his team, Paul Manafort, was under surveillance both before and after the election.
A new report that former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was wiretapped under secret court order could bolster President Trump’s explosive March claim about surveillance under the previous administration, after months of media mockery.
The CNN report said the surveillance of Manafort continued into early 2017, covering the period before and after the November presidential election. This reportedly covered a stretch when Manafort was known to talk to Trump, though it’s unclear whether Trump’s discussions were ever picked up.
Also unclear is where the wiretapping occurred. Manafort has a residence in Trump Tower, as well as a home in Alexandria, Va.
Andrew Napolitano, Fox News senior judicial analyst, said the latest report is “absolutely consistent” with allegations made by Trump and others. And WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange took a jab at CNN for slamming the president’s surveillance claims earlier this year.
Back in March, the same outlet declared Trump’s claim “baseless” – it was hardly alone in doing so, as PolitiFact also called the statements “false.”
Trump: I was "wire tapped"
CNN: Haha. That idiot @realDonaldTrump thinks he was wiretapped.

At the time, the tweets were somewhat peculiar:
“I’d bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!” he wrote, later adding: “This is Nixon/Watergate.”
An Obama spokesman at the time adamantly denied that Obama or any White House official ordered such surveillance.
The order to monitor Manafort was discontinued in 2016, but investigators obtained another FISA warrant that stretched into early 2017, according to the report.

There are still many questions that need answering, but it does seem as though President Trump was telling the truth in his tweets.
So, CNN, about that crow…
