-Was Trump himself picked up on any of the surveillance? According to sources, the new warrant was issued in an effort by the FBI to investigate ties between Trump campaign associates and suspected Russian operatives. The wiretapping came under the authority of two secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court orders: following the beginning of the FBI's investigation into Manafort in 2014, then another that allowed the wiretapping to continue until early 2017, CNN reported. There's still no evidence to support those claims.
The FBI obtained a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court as part of the probe into ties between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives. But even with the missing pieces, the fact that government investigators were able to get the warrant, with such a high bar for approval, means that things are getting real for the investigation into Trump campaign leaders' dealings with Russian Federation.

American Oversight, a liberal watchdog group founded by former Obama administration officials stated on September 2 that Trump's claims were groundless. FOIA requests are very literal, and their wording requested information that would have likely implied Obama personally wiretapped the Trump Tower, which is, of course, almost unthinkable. Mike Huckabee said the question is: "Why did they engage in that wiretap?"
Among the many propaganda tactics of disinformation is to use true information to manufacture false conclusions.

CNN cited multiple sources in its report Monday, but Levin spoke about allegations on his radio show that someone on the Trump campaign team was wiretapped in March. Trump didn't seem that concerned, however, as he kept chatting with Manafort even after it was widely reported that he was the target of an FBI investigation.
While under oath, Comey disavowed knowledge of surveillance of Trump and his team. "It is possible now-as has been noted many times since Trump tweeted his accusation in March-that if the US president was in communication with these individuals, his communications might have been incidentally collected".
