Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino believes the Trump Tower wiretapping scandal, known as Obamagate by many on social media, is going to “blow wide open this week.”
I'll be sharing more about the Obama administration this week, it's time. #ObamaGate

Bongino worked for the administrations of former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama in the Presidential Protection Division.
He was a frequent presence on cable news shows throughout the 2016 presidential election season and had an explosive confrontation with CNN’s Don Lemon in defense of Trump.
It was so fiery that President Trump congratulated him for it.
In a Facebook Live video after the tweets, Bongino said the media wants to push the story that Trump might have pressured the FBI to tell him about the wiretap or that the president is lying.
But he explained that Trump’s Secret Service protection probably did electronic countermeasure sweeps to check for listening devices and found the bugs.
The media is too busy looking to find a way to make the story about President Trump doing something incorrect to realize that this is the most likely scenario, according to Bongino.
And he believes America is going to find out this week.
