Repeat the lie often and loudly enough, and people actually start to believe it. Case and point.

"I might lie to you like Hillary does all the time, but I'll never lie to Giacomo, okay?" –Donald Trump, admitting to lying to voters while speaking at a rally in Connecticut, but saying he would not lie to an 18-year-old cancer patient in the audience, Giacomo Brancado (August 13, 2016)

Yep! Trump just admitted to the world that the FBI has obtained legal permission from the courts to investigate his campaign! LOL!
The question is did the warrant exceed the allotted time, was anything intercepted released in an unauthorized manner and was the intent for legal reasons or for political reasons.

Obama, through a spokesperson, said that the White House has arms length deniability because they never had any say on what actions the DOJ undertake with regards to surveillance of US Citizens. (paraphrased)
Trump states that the court order was previously turned down, implying that they got another one to wiretap him, which would presumably have something to do with the accusations about the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians.
CNN are calling Trump a "conspiracy theorist" for making such claims, but reading between the lines, it appears that it's true.
It's interesting that they still haven't been able to produce anything to hang Trump with it...
Trump is setting the stage here for something, although I can't understand why he'd choose to make it public without the evidence. He's no idiot, so he must be trying to set a trap of some kind, and the MSM including CNN are eating it up in an attempt to lambaste Trump as a paranoid conspiracy theorist who's out to lunch and is taking his talking points from right wing media outlets, as if he just ran with an unfounded rumor.
What Trump really needs to do is to ensure that investigations find and capture any and all individuals like John and Tony Podesta who can be proven to have engaged in child-sex-trafficking and other unmentionable things.
It's time for him to take them all DOWN.
Mr. President: If there was a wiretap at Trump Tower, that means a fed judge found probable cause of crime which means you are in deep #. t.co...
