trump tweeted of wiretapping during his election by former president barack obama. >> reporter: an early morning tweets from president trump had a bombshell accusation. he accused former president barack obama of wiretapping him during the election, tweeting, "terrible! just found out that obama had my 'wires tapped' in trump tower just before the victory. nothing found. this is mccarthyism!" and "how low has president obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. this is nixon/watergate. bad (or sick) guy!" the tweets seem to reference a story from friday that brought up and unsubstantiated report that the obama administration wiretapped the trump tower in 2015. >> i do not know if it is true, bit if it is true, it would be
6:06 pm
the biggest political scandal since watergate. >> reporter: a spokesperson for former president barack obama said a cardinal rule is that no white house official ever interfere with a independent investigation by the department of justice. one of his former senior advisers had a tweet in response saying no president can order a wiretap, those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you. the repercussions of these allocations could be huge. if true, they could lead to serious trouble for former president barack obama and his staff but if false, it could give more fuel to critics of president donald trump. let's turn now to our weather. rain is making a
