Why was it a CRIME for Nixon to wiretap Democrats at Watergate, but OK for Obama to wiretap Republicans at Trump Tower?

Don't forget, he tapped AP reporters as well.
But yeah, Trump is ' anti-Freedom of the Press ' lol
And let's not forget James Rosen
And Sharyl Attkinson's computer intrusion ( Still in court )

Because Obama didn't wiretap Trump Tower. That claim, like the overwhelming majority made by Donald Trump, was a complete and total fabrication, and the only reason he said it is because he knew there are a lot of brain-dead chumps out there who would believe it.

Because Democrits think they are above the law and will push and dream up as much as they can to keep the eyes from looking their way and they are praying that the statute of limitations passes before their beloved Hillary is caught..

Obama never wiretapped Trump Tower. That is just Donald Trump being paranoid.

All calls to and from Russia are wiretapped.

It is a crime if it happened. But Nixon did not wiretap Democrats, and he was not accused of that. He was accused of diverting the FBI investigation into the wiretap and other activities,
for totally unknown reasons.
Nixon never was tried and convicted of diverting the FBI, but the watergate tapes indicate he intended to divert the FBI, but again it was never proven, .
Nixon did the worst thing he could have done,
In the meantime, we have no public evidence Obama ever wiretapped Republicans, again like Nixon, it was only an accusation and he was also never tried and
OBAMA WAS NOT STUPID ENOUGH TO RESIGN!

He never wire tapped Trump, Trump's offices, or the Trump campaign.
He also didn't cover up a break in at Republican party offices.

Obama never wiretapped Trump nor any Republicans: it was another lie from Trump. If it were true, Trump would have produced evidence.
Trump got Devin Nunes, a congressional Trump supporter, to investigate this, and we never heard any more out of this allegation.

Because Obama's Justice Dept. was actually investigating crimes, not just trying to cheat in an election. Big difference. Certain people in Trump's organization were under suspicion of crimes. Many of them have been prosecuted and have even confessed and helped the govt. Nobody in George McGovern's campaign was suspected of serious federal crimes.
