Did Obama spy on Trump? Glenn Reynolds

It isn’t out of the question. The former president’s administration wiretapped journalists and spied on Congress.

So President Trump set off a firestorm over the weekend with a series of tweets alleging that Obama had tapped Trump Tower. But getting hung up on imprecise language in the president’s tweets isn’t the right way to look at things. What seems to be at true is that the Obama administration spied on some of Trump’s associates and we don’t know exactly how much information was collected under what authority and who was targeted.
