Hah! Julian Assange Trolls CNN Over Trump-Manafort Wiretapping Story in Viral Tweet
After months of mocking Trump for claiming he was wiretapped, CNN reported what we all knew to be true. Trump’s campaign was surveilled by Obama’s FBI.
CNN reported Monday that Obama’s FBI indeed wiretapped Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort before, during and after the 2016 presidential election. CNN is even admitting that Trump himself may have been caught up in the surveillance.
This CNN report ended up as a screaming headline on the Drudge Report.
