White House Defends Wiretapping Claim Despite FBI Director Knockdown

Source: Talking Points Memo


By MATT SHUHAM Published MARCH 20, 2017, 2:20 PM EDT

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday that President Donald Trump stood by his unsubstantiated claim that former President Barack Obama ordered the wiretapping of Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign.

During his daily press briefing, which began during a break in FBI Director James Comey’s testimony to the House Intelligence Committee, Spicer was asked about Comey saying that neither the FBI, nor any component of the Justice Department, had seen information to support Trump’s claim.

“He said that there is no information to support the allegations that the President made against President Obama,” ABC’s Jonathan Karl told Spicer, referring to Comey, before the press secretary cut him off. “At this time,” Spicer said.

“So is the President prepared to withdraw that accusation and apologize to the President?” Karl asked. “No,” Spicer responded. “We started a hearing. It’s still ongoing. And then, as Chairman Nunes mentioned, this is one of a series of hearings that will be happening.”

"Not that I'm aware of," Spicer said.

2. This is such an out-of-body experience...

I have no comparison to make sense of this insanity with...no other public figure in history has been this duplicitous and "fact-free" , ever!

At this point, Baghdad Bob is off the hook as the least truthful spokesperson in history...
