McCain calls on Trump to back up wire-tapping claim

Some believe, Senator John McCain to be a hero.

 

I’m not among them. and neither is the bitter old man, former presidential candidate, John McCain

 

As as a United States Senator from Arizona, he’s had his good and bad moments.

 

 

Mostly good when he was younger, not so good even woeful in his later years when he became an appeasing RINO.

It’s time for him to resign, go back home, enjoy his family and life.

Will he do it?

Don’t buy it, he’s a very angry man.

 

MR. HAPPY!

Further proof we need term limits!

U.S. Senator John McCain on Monday called for President Donald Trump to release any evidence supporting his claim the Obama administration wiretapped him while probing Russia’s influence in the 2016 election.

“I think the president of the United States, if he has any information that would indicate that his predecessor wiretapped Trump Tower, then he should come forward with that information. The American people deserve it,” McCain, a Republican from Arizona, told Reuters.

 

 

Jason Chaffetz, a Republican lawmaker who heads the U.S. House of Representatives Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told CBS in an interview on Monday that he had “not seen anything directly that would support what the president has said.”

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who heads the Senate Judiciary subcommittee looking into allegations Russia meddled in the election, said the panel would be asking both Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey and the Justice Department whether he had told the law enforcement agency this weekend to reject Trump’s wiretapping claim.

The White House said on Monday that Trump still has confidence in Comey despite his assertiveness in challenging Trump’s claim that the administration of former President Barack Obama had wiretapped him.

 

Asked whether Trump still had confidence in Comey, White House Spokesman Sean Spicer said:

“There’s nothing that I have been told by him that would lead me to believe that anything is different from what it was prior.”

He was “almost 100 percent certain” Trump had not spoken to Comey since the Republican president made the allegation on Twitter on Saturday.

“I’m not aware that occurred,” Spicer told reporters.

But, when asked during an early-morning interview on Monday with ABC’s “Good Morning America” whether Trump accepted Comey’s assertion, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, “I don’t think he does.”

The FBI declined to comment on Comey’s communications.

Trump has given no evidence for his claim that Trump Tower was wiretapped.

The allegation is the latest twist in a controversy over ties between Trump associates and Russia that has dogged the early days of his presidencyThe wiretapping allegation hit U.S. stocks on Monday.

Some investors worried that the affair could distract Trump from his economic agenda of introducing tax cuts and simplifying regulations that has powered a record-setting rally on Wall Street since the election.

The lack of detail on Trump’s proposals, his isolationist stance, and setbacks in filling his Cabinet have made investors question whether the post-election rally has run its course.

Democrats accused Trump of making the wiretapping claim to try to distract from a controversy about possible links to Russia.

His administration is facing FBI and congressional investigations into contacts between members of his campaign team and Russian officials.

The White House has asked the Republican-controlled Congress to examine, as part of an ongoing congressional probe into Russia’s influence on the election, whether the Obama administration abused its investigative authority.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    I feel like I am watching a group of people play telephone. Remember the game? Someone whispers a sentence into the person to the right of them’s ear and they repeat it to the person of the right of them and so on and so forth and suddenly “The elephant in the Zoo was named Ellie Lou” becomes “Elephants in the Zoo look like you and Emma too.” If everyone would shut up and start listening to the words being said maybe this mess could be sorted out! Someone hears two words and they are off with a big story! As for Mr. Hero McCain, he needs a long rest with a bottle of xanex and to go home and order someone else around. Since when does he get to set deadlines and call for evidence? Who died and made him ruler of anything other than his bathroom breaks?
