Chuckling About Trump’s Assertion Of Phone Tapping
Today perhaps the best response was given by a senator over the erratic Twitter statement from Donald Trump about the assertion phones in his campaign headquarters in Trump Tower were tapped. Senator Marco Rubio responded to Meet The Press moderator Chuck Todd.
TODD: “As a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, if there was a wiretap on Donald Trump’s campaign, isn’t that something you would have been made aware of?”
RUBIO: “Well, again, I think the term ‘wiretap’ is thrown around very loosely, and by a lot of people. So we have to understand exactly what they’re talking about. Suffice it to say I don’t have any basis, I’ve never heard that allegation made before by anybody. I’ve never seen anything about that anywhere before. But again, the president put that out there, and now the White House will have to answer as to exactly what he was referring to. … Let’s say — clearly, I don’t think anybody — if that were true, then there’s no doubt that it would (CHUCKLE) be a very newsworthy item with a lot of discussion about it. And if it’s not true, then obviously, one would ask themselves, ‘Well, why did you put that out there to begin with? And what was the rationale behind it?'”
