Head Of House Oversight Committee DENOUNCES Trump Wiretap Claims!

0

Over the weekend the mainstream liberal media was abuzz over the allegations made by President Trump that the former Obama administration illegally wire tapped his campaign at the Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election. The accusations have drawn bipartisan castigation as Republicans have even said the claims are unsubstantiated.

One of the highest ranking members in the House of Representatives is now expressing this similar sentiment. Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah is head of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. This morning he publically announced there is no evidence that supports the claims the Obama administration wiretapped Trump’s phones during the campaign.

Chaffetz spoke on CBS during a segment of “This Morning.” He insisted he will be keeping his eyes wide open in regard to any evidence that might appear. He said,

“Thus far, I have not seen anything directly that would support what the president has said.”

The House committee head affirmed that had President Obama wiretapped Trump’s building he would have required the court’s permission thus leaving a paper trail. He said,

“It’s a very serious allegation. The president has at his fingertips tens of billions of dollars in intelligence apparatus. I’ve got to believe, I think, he might have something there, but if not, we’re going to find out. It’s going to take us some time to unravel this, but we will get there.

On Sunday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer released the following statement regarding the President’s accusations,

“Reports concerning potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of the 2016 election are very troubling. President Donald J. Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016.”

Chaffetz said that while they would look into the allegation the investigation would not be a speedy one. Considering the fact that no tangible evidence has appeared thus far that would confirm these allegations it makes sense why the committee would have such an opinion.

In the words of Senator Lindsey Graham, if the Obama administration did commit this crime it would be one of the greatest scandals since Watergate during the Nixon administration. However, only time will tell if these accusations have any validity to them. At this point, it does not appear they do.
