"White House Defends Wiretapping Claim Despite FBI Director Knockdown

Source: Talking Points Memo


By MATT SHUHAM Published MARCH 20, 2017, 2:20 PM EDT

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday that President Donald Trump stood by his unsubstantiated claim that former President Barack Obama ordered the wiretapping of Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign.

During his daily press briefing, which began during a break in FBI Director James Comey’s testimony to the House Intelligence Committee, Spicer was asked about Comey saying that neither the FBI, nor any component of the Justice Department, had seen information to support Trump’s claim.

“He said that there is no information to support the allegations that the President made against President Obama,” ABC’s Jonathan Karl told Spicer, referring to Comey, before the press secretary cut him off. “At this time,” Spicer said.

“So is the President prepared to withdraw that accusation and apologize to the President?” Karl asked. “No,” Spicer responded. “We started a hearing. It’s still ongoing. And then, as Chairman Nunes mentioned, this is one of a series of hearings that will be happening.”

1. This is what happens when someone in the Presidency is in it for themselves....

 

and not in it for the betterment of the nation.

It's all about lining their own pockets, it's all about what they need, do, have, want. The selfish element in all of this comes down to the childish antics of a narcissistic idiot who has never been told "no".

3. I would like to know at what point do his advisers tell him he should back down?

When do his supporters finally admit that his claims are false? Surely a sane person would realize by now that his wiretapping claims are in the same class as his birther claims.

2. Comey said that the FBI and the DOJ have no information about the wiretap.

Does that mean the wiretap claim is false? Simply put, No. It just means the FBI/DOJ aren't aware of any wiretapping that was done by Obama.

Ask yourself this: If you wanted to wiretap a candidate from the opposing party, would you go through the official channels and leave a paper trail?
