McCain Intensifies Trump Tantrum, Asks President to Provide Proof for Wiretap Claim by Monday

After President Trump’s stunning accusation from last weekend claiming that Barack Obama wiretapped the Trump Tower prior to the election, top Republican and Democrat lawmaker, the likes of Devin Nunes (R-California) who is the House Intelligence Committee Chairman and Adam Schiff (D-California) presented the White House with a letter demanding evidence about the Trump Tower being bugged by Monday.

While the President did not repeat his allegations (so far) and he has kept his distance from the press corps since last weekend, he also failed to provide any kind of evidence regarding his claim about former president Obama’s misdeeds.

A spokesperson for Barack Obama denied any kind of connection between the White House and a surveillance order over the Trump Tower. However, the New York Times’s front page on January 20th 2017 reads:

“Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides”

Just two months later, the mainstream media are trashing their own stories, helped by DEMs and RINOs along the way.

Too bad this isn’t George Orwell’s 1984 – then they could have had the story “unwritten”.

President Donald Trump asked for the  investigation of the alleged Trump Tower wiretapping to be part of the Congress probe regarding Kremlin’s meddling with the presidential elections.

The top DEM on the House panel Adam Schiff slammed President Trump’s wiretapping claims by calling them  destructive and outlandish, saying that he doesn’t expect to see such evidence from the intelligence panel investigation, even suggesting that none existed. He said during an ABC interview that:

“Either the president quite deliberately for some reason made up the charge or, perhaps more disturbing, the president really believes this,”

Republican Senator John McCain appeared on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday morning and he asked President Donald Trump to provide evidence for Obama’s wiretapping claim or to retract his accusations.

“President Trump has to provide the American people, not just the intelligence community, but the American people, with evidence that his predecessor, former president of the Unites States was guilty of breaking the law,”
