McCain on Trump’s wiretapping claim: “Prove it!”


U.S. Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) is calling for President Trump to either produce proof of wiretapping or withdraw his claims.

On Mar. 12, during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, McCain made it clear that he does not support the president in his claims implicating former President Barack Obama of wiretapping his campaign during his run for the presidency.

“President Trump has to provide the American people, not just the intelligence community, but the American people, with evidence that his predecessor, former President of the Unites States, was guilty of breaking the law.”

Stating that allegations, if left “out there” and unproven, could undermine the public trust in “the way the entire government functions,” McCain said that he has “no reason to believe that the charge is true.”

McCain told the “State of the Union” host that Trump could easily offer proof if he wanted to — all it would take is a phone call to the director of National Intelligence and the CIA director.
