Trump accuses Obama of wiretapping his phones during campaign

Taking the offensive against Democratic allegations of his campaign collusion with Putin, President Trump on Saturday angrily accused former president Barack Obama of orchestrating a “Nixon/Watergate” plot to tap the phones at his Trump Tower headquarters last fall in the run-up to the election. He compared this to McCarthyism.

A spokesman for Obama did not immediately reply to a request for comment. Trump’s associates have accused the Democrats of conducting a witch hunt against his presidency and cabinet members.
