That’s all it takes to verify Trump’s assertions that he was wiretapped by the Obama administration, and McCain isn’t the first to say so.
The problem is it would put an immediate end to Trump’s claim – he knows it and his cohorts know it.
As a device to distract it serves a greater purpose to call for an “investigation” than to make a simple call and have to eat crow and look like the idiot Trump is.
Remember the call to investigate the “millions” of “illegal votes” that allegedly cost Trump a majority win? How’s that going?
Give it another week or two and another issue will arise that Trump will attempt the same tactic with.
And why shouldn’t he? I mean after all it all works among his supporters.
He expects them to ignore the fact that over seventeen separate agencies announced his election fraud claim had no basis in fact, and they’ve done exactly that.
The same agencies have said the same regarding his wiretapping claim.
McCain said there are two options – either Trump retracts the accusation which would never happen, or to provide proof – which isn’t going happen either as there is none.
There’s actually a third option knowing that Trump can fling some feces on the wall and his supporters will scoop it up and run with it – which is what’s happening.
It’s really amazing that in the midst of proclaiming the media an enemy of the people a story like this would emerge from Breitbart of all places and anyone would actually believe it.
I suspect it won’t be long before Trump labels individuals like McCain and Lindsey Graham enemies of the state.
