Nothing to investigate about Trump's "wiretap"

[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?



  1. Hey, isn't this same guy, who, for five years repeatedly, and without evidence, stated that your previous president was not born in the U.S.A.?

    Is he delusional or is this Machiavellian distraction - both ... or?

  2. Yes, that is true, Alan -- except that it was more like eight years. He didn't retract that claim until after he had gotten the Republican nomination.
