(CBSNEWS) – President Trump woke up at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida on Saturday morning firing off a tweetstorm claiming that President Obama essentially wiretapped, or bugged, Trump Tower offices before the election.

CBS News has been unable to confirm any of this new information.

But the president is clearly irritated.

In one tweet, Mr. Trump describes Mr. Obama as a “bad (or sick) guy.”

A spokesman for Mr. Obama responded in a statement on Saturday afternoon.

“A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice,” spokesman Kevin Lewis said. “As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”

    just shows this idiot is completely bonkers-trying to pull attention away from his dealings with the Ruskies-hopefully this russian deal will be his undoing and we can get a sane person in the office.
    Don’t really care for pence but at least he is not crazy
