Over the last week, President Donald Trump has been forced to deal with the growing scandal of Russian interference in the election. As news continues to be released, Trump is now going after former President Barack Obama.

Trump on Obama

Earlier this week, the Washington Post broke the story that current Attorney General Jeff Sessions had met with a Russian offical twice during the election last year during his time as a senator from Alabama. In addition, the information was never disclosed during Sessions' confirmation hearing in the Senate, which has resulted in Democrats calling for his resignation.

In response, Donald Trump reacted in defense, quickly bashing the Democrats, while denying any wrongdoing or relationship with the Kremlin. As seen on his Twitter account on March 4, Trump is now going after Obama.

"Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found," Donald Trump wrote on Twitter early Saturday morning, before adding, "This is McCarthyism!" Not stopping there, the former host of "The Apprentice" continued his attack on the former commander in chief.

"Just out: The same Russian Ambassador that met Jeff Sessions visited the Obama White House 22 times, and 4 times last year alone," Donald Trump continued on Twitter.

"Is it legal for a sitting President to be 'wire tapping' a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier," he tweeted, while also noting, "A NEW LOW!"

Trump's new low

"I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!" Donald Trump wrote in yet another social media attack.

In conclusion, the billionaire real estate mogul then compared Obama to Richard Nixon for his dealings in Watergate. "How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate," Trump tweeted, before adding, "Bad (or sick) guy!"
