Sure, he would. And it’s not new news. Check out the date on this cartoon:
We KNOW that during his 8 years in the White House, President Obama had long-term taps placed on the phones of the Chief of Staff of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR); the Director of the Rules Division of the World Trade Organisation (WTO); five top EU economic officials; Italy’s ambassador to NATO and other top Italian officials.
He stole sensitive Italian diplomatic cables between Israel and Italy and intercepted details of high level strategy discussions between between the leaders of France, Germany, and Italy; between UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel; and between EU and Japanese trade ministers.
He also wire tapped various individuals in the Associated Press and CBS and spied on Fox News’ reporter James Rosen and on his family.
