An Observation on Trump and Wiretapping

Posted on: March 18, 2017

I think it is possible but unlikely that some part of the government tapped the phones at The Trump Towers as is suspected, suspected due primarily to the amount of leakage of critical information, I am sure.

Rather, it is more likely that a media or telecommunications company tapped his phones if they were indeed tapped.

It is after all those types of organizations that do the economic forecasting constantly to determine profit potentials and it is quite possible they were trying to determine what the potential for a Trump presidency would be and how it might affect their bottom line. In the course of those events they accumulated a significant amount of actionable intelligence.

The media always have us focusing on an intrusive government. And to be sure we must be aware of governmental incursions into the private lives of the citizenry. But the government doesn’t have the resources that the privateers and corporations do, and it is my opinion that we must be just as conscious of what media and communications corporations that have direct access to your information are doing with our most private information. One only needs to surf the internet to have hundreds of corporations automatically start a file on you and then the sale of the information starts.

So to me it is more likely that a private entity tapped Trump Towers than the government. I could be wrong, but I’m just playing the odds in that regard.
