Former attorney General (Minister of justice) USA Michael Makasi agree with the President of the United States Donald trump is in Trump Tower skyscraper was conducted “surveillance”, however, does not consider that the conduct it has ordered former President Barack Obama.
“I think the President (trump) was not accurate in his statement specifically about the fact that Obama ordered to wiretap… But I think he’s right in the fact that the surveillance took place, and it was conducted at the request of the Prosecutor of the Ministry of justice through the courts for control of foreign intelligence service,” said Makasi in interview to TV channel ABC.
Makasi, who held the post of attorney General in the years of the second presidential term of George W. Bush, believes that “surveillance” could be conducted because “there was some reason to believe that someone in the Trump Tower could act as agent for the Russians.”
