DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. March 4, 2017, 4:41 PM (IDT)
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.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
