I am posting the question in my blog title because news is coming out this afternoon that the answer may well be yes.
Here are the first paragraphs of a story being reported by James Rosen of Fox News:
Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week, a source told Fox News.
Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President Trump accused his predecessor of having wiretapped him in a series of now-infamous tweets posted on March 4.
The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump, according to sources.
If this is true, it is a bombshell of bombshells, which not only proves President Trump right about his being tapped but, putting it bluntly, means President Barack Obama engaged in criminal activity.
These are obviously extremely serious charges. Therefore, I don’t want to write more until there is additional meat on the bone regarding Mr. Rosen’s allegations.
I’ll keep you apprised if and when such information becomes available.
