John McCain Demands Trump Tell Public Basis of Wiretap Claim


Senator John McCain demanded President Trump tells the public what the basis was for his charge that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower.

“The American people need to know what evidence he has to make such a charge — that’s a serious charge,” McCain said

Trump dropped the serious allegation on Saturday morning, tweeting, “Just found out that Obama had my phones “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory.”  The President doesn’t have the legal authority to wiretap.  The FBI and the NSA take surveillance requests to the Department of Justice, where they’re processed through a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA).

FBI Director, James Comey, asked the Justice Department to refute President Trump’s claim publicly.

Former Obama Spokesperson, Kevin Lewis, responded to the claim by insisting no Obama administration official ordered surveillance on any American, nor interfered in Justice Department investigations.

Hate radio’s screaming voice, Mark Levin, initially levied the claim, which was reported by Breitbart on Friday.
