It is “extremely likely” that French conservative presidential candidate Francois Fillon has been the subject of wiretapping in the course of a judicial investigation, a campaign aide said on Sunday, in the latest accusations to be made by the Fillon camp against the authorities.

The allegation, reminiscent of President Trump’s accusation that former President Barack Obama had wiretapped him, comes amid Fillon’s claim earlier this week that French President Francois Hollande was leading a plot against him, Reuters reported.

“It’s extremely likely. It wouldn’t be illegal, but that would, once more, be a democratic scandal,” lawmaker Eric Ciotti, a close campaign aide, told Europe 1 radio and CNEWS television in an interview on Sunday, asked about reports that Fillon himself on Saturday said he was likely to have been wiretapped in the course of the probe into accusations of misuse of public funds.

But other politicians have viewed Fillon and Ciotti’s assertions with skepticism.

“I don’t believe at all that there is an orchestrated operation there,” centrist Francois Bayrou said. “Conspiracy theories…keep one from looking at one’s own responsibilities.”

Fillon, the 63-year-old former prime minister, had looked sure of winning the presidency after he won the candidate-selection contest in his Republicans party last November.

But he has fallen to third place – meaning he faces first-round elimination on April 23 – since media revelations prompted magistrates to open an inquiry into allegations that he paid his wife and children hundreds of thousands of euros of public money for work as parliamentary assistants they may not have done.

Scandalous!
