Police State USA? President Trump shocks the Beltway with a series of tweets accusing President Obama of "tapping my phones" in October 2016. We dig deep into these explosive charges, as it now seems certain that candidate Trump was under NSA surveillance heading into the election. Newt Gingrich says the Obama Administration "smells to high heaven" in all this, while Andrew McCarthy of National Review describes Obama's "politically motivated abuse of presidential power." A pattern dating back to the IRS Scandal? We consider the stunning word-parsing "non-denials" of Obama spokesmen Josh Earnest and Kevin Lewis, along with Sen. Chuck Schumer's duplicitous "either way" lack of denial. With Listener Calls & Music via AC/DC, Moby and the Beatles.
