Why the curious silence from Obama over tapped Trump Tower?

What is with this curious — now deafening — silence from former President Barack Obama on these charges that his administration spied on a political opponent at the very height of a presidential campaign?
Since President Trump first leveled the incendiary charges in early March, there have been thousands of press articles and endless hours of speculation on cable television about the high-level accusations.
Every word, character and symbol of punctuation from Mr. Trump has been parsed and sussed and diagrammed.
Yet, from media darling Barack Obama (about whom the accusations were made!)? Not a peep.
This is no small thing we are talking about here. We are talking about a sitting president’s administration using the terrifying powers of espionage of the United States government to conduct an intelligence operation against a political opponent before, during and after that target was elected president of the United States.
So much for “peaceful transfer of power.”
