Of course Obama didn’t “order” any wire tapping. Just like a mob boss never officially orders a hit or like a shady banking CEO never officially orders anyone to operate on inside information. It’s called “plausible deniability.” But in Obama’s case things are looking less and less plausibly deniable.

Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey on Sunday said that President Trump is likely correct that there was surveillance on Trump Tower for intelligence purposes, but incorrect in accusing former President Barack Obama of ordering the wiretapping.
“I think he’s right in that there was surveillance and that it was conducted at the behest of the attorney general — at the Justice Department,” Mukasey told ABC’s “This Week.”
Trump on Saturday accused Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower in New York City just before the November election.
