President Trump, Without Evidence, is Claiming The Obama Administration….

Congressional Republicans were flummoxed Sunday by President Donald Trump’s and his White House’s continued assertions — provided without evidence — that President Barack Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign.

A day after Trump made the charge, Hill Republicans were largely mute, and those who spoke out were perplexed at the source of Trump’s information, which the White House has yet to disclose.

Sen. Marco Rubio said Sunday he had seen “no evidence” to back up Trump’s wiretap claims. Rubio is a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is investigating Trump’s ties to Russia and has received classified briefings on the issue.

“I’d imagine the president and the White House in the days to come will outline further what was behind that accusation,” the Florida Republican said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “The president put that out there, and now the White House will have to answer as to exactly what he was referring to.”

Rubio’s comments came a day after Nebraska GOP Sen. Ben Sasse, a longtime Trump critic, said Trump owed it to the public to share more details about his allegation. Other Republican lawmakers who have clashed with Trump made similar demands for more information.

    His source for information is Breitbart . The white supremacist garage rag started by his bigot Bannon. Lies, lies, and deflection from the real treasonous story that focuses on him and his criminal cabinet and regime and Putin.

    President Trump has shown nothing but instability since he took office. A number of his campaign staff has been linked to meeting with Russia some before the election even took place which makes no sense as he didn’t even know he would win and had no reason for contact. He has displayed unstable behavior, twitter rants on multiple topics, trying to turn the American people against the free press,refusing to disclose taxes that he himself promised following IRS audit and now this deformation of character of our 45th president. He is a laughing stock to other countries and it is a disgrace that Congress has failed to order a Independent investigation and order him to produce his taxes.

    This is standard Trump behavior!! And it has been proven over and over again that Trump just make slanderous allegations with NO PROOF!! Again, Trump won’t be able to prove it!

    After all, TRUMP SAID: “I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things…my primary consultant is myself.”

    TRUMP: “The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people’s fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That’s why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It’s an innocent form of exaggeration — and a very effective form of promotion.

    During his first interview as president, Trump was confronted by ABC News’ David Muir about his baseless claim that up to five million illegal votes were cast in the 2016 presidential election. Trump responded by saying that what matters to him is whether his “very smart” Fox News-watching supporters agree with him.

    Aren’t we proud to have a mentally ill person as our commander in chief? We are truly at the bottom of the swamp with him. His administration is the lowest of the low and seems like a comedy skit in action. “Who would be the worst person for….” Yup, 45 gives him/her the job. I guess we need some serial killers in the administration to finalize the worst of the worst list.
