Do you think McCain is jealous that Trump did something he couldn’t? Is that where all this anger and distaste for the president is coming from? Let us know your thoughts.
A senior Republican lawmaker on Sunday challenged President Donald Trump to prove his claim that his phone was tapped by predecessor Barack Obama during last year’s campaign — or else retract the unsubstantiated allegation.
Senator John McCain, a frequent Trump critic, issued his demand in an interview with CNN.
“The president has one of two choices, either retract, or to provide the information that the American people deserve,” McCain said.
“I have no reason to believe this is true, but I also believe that the president of the United States could clear this up in a minute,” he continued.
“All he has to do is pick up the phone, call the director of the CIA, the director of national intelligence and say, ‘OK, what happened?’ Because they certainly should know whether the former president of the United States was wiretapping Trump Tower.”
