Collins says Trump 'owes us' a wiretapping explanation

Source: Politico








03/19/17 11:56 AM EDT


President Donald Trump owes Congress and the American people an explanation about his claims that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower, Sen. Susan Collins said on Sunday.

Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press," the Maine Republican stopped short of saying the president should apologize, but said he should turn over any evidence of wiretapping to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees for their investigations into Russian hacking during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"I'd like to first get to the bottom of this before saying what should be done," Collins said. "I don't know the basis for President Trump's assertion. And that's what I wish he would explain to us on the Intelligence Committee and to the American people. And I do believe he owes us that explanation."............................

1. Collins always stops short of taking a principled position.

McConnell generally keeps the GOP Senators on a short leash.

5. Don't hold your breath

He's never going to admit he stupidly parroted a Brietbart bullshit article, and had his sycophants go on wild goose chases, wasting taxpayer $$ to cover his lying ass, while he kept on doubling down on the bullshit.

Never gonna happen. Ever. If anything, expect more lies.

6. What would happen

if tRump came out and said that he had heard a rumor, nothing more, that he didn't have any evidence? He would lose credibility, but he doesn't have much to begin with anyway. But would he be in trouble of some sort? Would anyone actually come after him with a libel suit? I mean, he has to know that he is done for. Why keep up the pretense?

7. Not really....

Collins owes us an impeachment.

Congress-Critters needs to go get their balls out their wife's purse, except for the few women - get a spine, and get this idiot out before it can not be undone.

10. Hey Collins, you may be asking this question now but I want to know

why did you vote yes for everyone of his cabinet choices when they lied or were not qualified, and you expect your republican fascist president to come out and say on national TV that he is sorry about LYING that a former president "wiretapped" him------give us a break.

You know, for once just call him a liar, and have some principles, because you confirmed Liars to cabinet positions, talk about hypocrisy and no principles, you hadd the means and the vote to deny LIARS and you did not -------------------that's what he is a LIAR, he hired LIARS

11. He lied. What is there to explain?

Trump lies and will continue to lie and his lies will continue to cause problems and eventually one of his lies is going to be very costly.

So, really, it is Congress that owes the American people an explanation. WTF are you doing about the lies?
