Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has been turning more liberal since losing the 2008 presidential election to Barack Obama. He has repeatedly taken the side of liberal Democrats and is doing so again by demanding that President Trump provide his evidence for his claim of being wiretapped or retract the claim and shut up about it. What McCain fails to consider is that maybe Trump is keeping quiet about the evidence until the appropriate time to divulge his evidence to the proper investigative authorities.
Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) called Sunday for President Trump to either prove his claim that President Barack Obama tapped the phones in Trump Tower during last year’s election campaign or drop the accusation.
“The president has one of two choices, either retract or provide the information that the American people deserve,” McCain said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I have no reason to believe that the charge is true, but I also believe that the president of the United States could clear this up in a minute.”
McCain is one of several top lawmakers in Congress to call on Trump to provide evidence of his unsubstantiated claim that Obama ordered Trump’s communications monitored. The senator’s call for more information follows a request from two leading members of the Senate Judiciary Committee for “copies of any warrant applications and court orders — redacted as necessary … related to wiretaps of President Trump, the Trump Campaign, or Trump Tower.”
