The Trump wiretap debacle might be the end, once it is fully investigated.

Trump can’t win on this wiretap nonsense. Here’s why:

1. If it is true that Trump Tower was wiretapped, it couldn’t have been at Obama’s request, since presidents can’t put wire taps on the properties of citizens of the US. Only a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court) court can do that.

2. A FISA court can only place a wiretap as the result of a justice department subpoena. The US Justice department would have to have proven to the FISA court that there was a potential threat to national security to secure a wiretap. This means that someone in the Justice Dept suspected that something nefarious was going on at Trump Tower. That’s an entire other kettle of fish that hasn’t been addressed yet.

3. If it’s not true and there was no wiretap, Trump has just demanded a “full congressional investigation” into something that exists only in his mind.

4. Finally, if it is true, and the FISA court DID authorize a wiretap due to national security concerns, Trump has just broken the law because all FISA subpoenas are classified, and knowingly disseminating classified information is a federal offense.

You know, like they kept trying to suggest Hillary did, but never proved it.
