What struck me as someone who worked in digital communications from right back in the early 1970s was how from Trump’s using the generic phrase ‘tapping my phones’, the contoversy became centred on ‘wiretapping’ an obsolete technique using physical circuit breakers, that probably would not even work with the technology in Trump tower (each floor would have a wi-fi server and link via a fibreoptic backbone to a central comms hub).
Thus while Obama, Comey et al can truthfully deny ‘wiretapping trump’s phone they have not actually denied involvement in electronic eavesdropping by mean of software.
It is well known the NSA and GCHQ (and probably the CIA too) as well as agencies in Russia and China monitor all electronic communication, filtering text files and phone call metadata for keywords.
