The Trump Campaign Was Suspicious of Trump Tower Being Bugged in May, 2016

Obama was wiretapping Trump and repeatedly tried getting orders from the FISA court in order to do so. It turns out the suspicions of the Trump campaign staff members were right.

Flashback to May 2016, some of Trump’s campaign staffers thought that Trump Tower offices were getting bugged:

A constant stream of changes and scuffles are unsettling Donald J. Trump’s campaign team, including the abrupt dismissal this week of his national political director.

A sense of paranoia is growing among his campaign staff members, including some who have told associates they believe that their Trump Tower offices in New York may be bugged, according to three people briefed on the conversations.

And there is confusion among his donors, who want to give money to a “super PAC” supporting Mr. Trump, but have received conflicting signals from top aides about which one to support.

On Thursday, Mr. Trump secured the Republican Party’s nomination for president, a remarkable achievement for a political newcomer. But inside his campaign, the limits of his managerial style — reliant on his gut and built around his unpredictable personality — are vividly on display, according to interviews with nearly a dozen Republicans inside and outside of the operation.

Two months after assurances that the candidate would become “more presidential” and transition to a more unifying phase of his campaign, Mr. Trump continues to act as if the primary is still underway. His team has struggled to fill top positions, such as communications director, and Mr. Trump has made clear he still sees himself as his own chief adviser.

Mediatite was even sneering about this as well:

At the tail end of a lengthy interview with Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace elicited one of the weirder answers that you’re likely to see from a major presidential campaign’s spokesman anytime soon. As part of a multi-part question, Wallace asked Lewandowski to comment on reports that some Donald Trump associates say they suspect their Trump Tower offices are being bugged, and when Lewandowski ignored the question, Wallace zeroed in.

“Is there any bugging going on at the Trump Tower?” Wallace asked, and Lewandowski’s answer was miles away from “No”

For any other campaign, this would seem odd, but for Donald Trump, the issue of whether or not he’s bugging his own staffers is just part of “the way that our offices are set up.”

Turns out Donald Trump and his staff were right, again.
