So, here we go again; I just can’t ignore this serious and unprecedented accusation of a former President by a sitting-President.
I am not a constitutional lawyer, but Noah Feldman is; and his article in BloombergView “Trump's Wiretap Tweets Raise Risk of Impeachment,” (3/6/17) presents an interesting legal argument that Trump’s accusation that President Obama ordered Trump’s phones to be tapped could be grounds for his impeachment by Congress.
I suggest you read the article and “judge” for yourself; it could be that the Senate will eventually have to make the real judgement as to whether this time Trump (now as President) has gone too far in his wild and unsupported accusations.
Consider, too, the strange denial that presidential spokesman, Sean Spicer, was apparently told to read to the press (3/7/17): “There is no reason that we have to think the president is the target of any investigation whatsoever.” As a NY Times article about this pointed out:
"Mr. Spicer’s statement, which he read from a sheet of paper that was handed to him at the end of his briefing, reinforced the conundrum Mr. Trump’s tweets have created for the White House: Either the president’s assertions are baseless, or he may have implicated himself in a government investigation of contacts between his presidential campaign and Russia."
