Former Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken slammed President Trump’s most recent allegations of wiretapping, calling the President “the leading consumer and purveyor of fake news or conspiracy theories.” Speaking to CNN’s Kate Bolduan, Blinken said Trump’s allegations that former President Barack Obama ordered Trump be wiretapped are “virtually impossible to believe.” He said Obama could not have ordered a wiretap. It would have had to come through a

Blinken, who also served as deputy national security adviser to Obama, said he was puzzled why Trump would want to shine a spotlight on this, “because if there was a wiretap, it doesn’t reflect well on him or his associates. If there wasn’t, he’s made an outrageous allegation against President Obama.” READ MORE
