President Donald Trump's foes have "waged a by-any-means-necessary campaign" to throw out the election results, the New York Post charged in an editorial.
"President Trump's claim that his predecessor bugged Trump Tower during the election has sent the media into fits, wondering where on earth he could've gotten such an idea," an editorial in the Post said. "But it's all-too-obvious why Trump would be suspicious."
And the newspaper added: "Officials (likely Obama-era holdovers) have broken the law and leaked what they hoped would be damaging info. Groups tied to Obama have stirred up angry protests against Trump and other Republicans."
It claimed that the Obama administration "has a record of abusing power for political gain." And it noted the IRS had targeted conservative groups while Obama was in office.
The paper said the "anti-Trump press was apoplectic" after the president made his wiretap claims, and the media reported Trump's comments were "unsupported," the Post pointed out.
"…But what is truly lacking in solid evidence is the claim that there was some sort of collusion between Trump or his aides and Russian officials to hijack the election," the Post editorial board said.
"Yet that's all Trump's foes (and much of the press) want to talk about."
The newspaper conceded right now it is difficult to determine if Trump's office was bugged and who could have done it.
"But given Team Obama's record — and the never-ending bid to overturn the election — there's little doubt why Trump might think the worst," the newspaper said.
