Just when you thought that things may start to settle into some semblance of normalcy after what was regarded as perhaps the greatest speech in the political career of President Donald J. Trump, Trump did what he proven to be able to do better than any politician in American history: Dominate the news-cycle.

This tweet immediately fueled speculation that the Obama Administration, in its final days, may have had more than an observational interest in the Trump campaign as he began his final surge towards the Presidency. The idea of such audacity by the then President came as no surprise to news watchers who were well aware of the report on Obama’s State Department published by the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (PSI) which stated the State Department gave $349,276 in U.S. taxpayer-funded grants to a political group in Israel to build a campaign operation that was used to try to influence Israelis to vote against conservative Benjamin Netanyahu in the March 2015 election for prime minister.

Newly confirmed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, no stranger to controversy, manufactured or otherwise over the last month or so would make his way into this story when former Trump Presidential Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski stated in an interview with Judge Jeanine Pirro on Fox News, “They did spend time listening to conversations between then-Senator Jeff Sessions and the ambassador to Russia while he was in his Senate office. If that were to take place — which supposedly did take place — what other conversations did they listen in on from the American public?”

Regarding Trump’s initial accusation against Obama, Lewandowski stated, “Is it possible that that previous administration was listening to the conversations that took place in Trump Tower from their political opponents? If that is the case, and what Donald Trump alludes to is accurate, then that’s very, very disturbing for our future going forward.”

Trump’s chief spokesperson on Sunday called for Congress to investigate whether Obama had abused his power during the 2016 election.

“Reports concerning potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of the 2016 election are very troubling,” Press Secretary for the Trump WhiteHouse Sean Spicer said in a statement. “President Donald J. Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016.”

According to the New York Times, FBI Director James Comey on Sunday requested that the Justice Department “publicly knock down” President Donald Trump’s allegations that then President Barack Obama instructed intelligence agencies to wiretap his phones during the presidential election.
