[Two short ones today to make up for the extra long post yesterday.]
Despite widespread derision, as well as authoritative denials of any evidence, President Trump continues to maintain that there is something to be investigated in his claim that Obama wiretapped his phone.
Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, was on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday. She called on Trump to "explain to us on the Intelligence Committee and to the American people" so that they can "get to the bottom of this."
Rep. Adam Schiff, ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, responded by saying that he differed with Sen. Collins on this. "We are at the bottom of this," he said. "There is nothing at the bottom."
So then the question becomes: Why doesn't Trump stop pretending there is?
