McCain to Trump: Retract wiretapping claim or prove it

Source: Washington Post

“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.” (03/12/17)
