I would bet a fair amount that he still has internal sources, once a spy always a spy....

The NSA tapping EVERYTHING from everyone in no way validates the claim obama had trump wire tapped...

Well worth a watch. The first 8 minutes is a discussion with a democratic strategist, then the interview with Bill Pinney starts at the 8:00 minute mark):
In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.
It's worth listening to what the guy says, but you also have to remember that he quit just after 9/11 because of what was going on. He's been out of the loop for 15 years now.
That said, I'm sure the intelligence agencies were spying, they have a directive to do that.
That's not what Trump was alleging though. Trump alleged Obama personally ordered additional spying beyond the usual, to target Trump specifically. And that allegation is looking more and more to not be true every day.
