The most interesting take I've read on the Trump wiretap imbroglio comes from Sundance who puts together a timeline of events leading up to the President's tweets over the weekend. Just a taste:
- On Tuesday November 8th, 2016 the election was held. Results announced Wednesday November 9th, 2016.
- On Thursday November 17th, 2016, NSA Director Mike Rogers traveled to New York and met with President-Elect Donald Trump.
- On Friday November 18th The Washington Post reported on a recommendation in "October" that Mike Rogers be removed from his NSA position...
Basically, the hypothesis is that NSA Director Mike Rogers objected to the wiretapping in June and October, which led to a recommendation from others in the Obama administration that Rogers be fired; further, shortly after the election Rogers alerted Trump to the wiretapping.
