Trump Caught in a Big Lie.....Again

In a Repudiation of Trump, a Senior House Leader Rejects Wiretap Claim

WASHINGTON — In a striking repudiation of President Trump, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, a Republican, said on Wednesday that he had seen no indication of Mr. Trump's claim on Twitter that former President Barack Obama wiretapped his phones in Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“We don’t have any evidence that that took place,’’ Representative Devin Nunes, Republican of California and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said at a news conference on Capitol Hill. “In fact, I don’t believe — in the last week of time, people we’ve talked to, I don’t think there was an actual tap of Trump Tower.”

If Mr. Trump’s Twitter claim is to be taken literally, Mr. Nunes said, “then clearly the president is wrong.”

Even a member of Mr. Trump’s cabinet, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, raised questions about the claim. In Richmond, Va., he told reporters that he had never given Mr. Trump any reason to believe he had been wiretapped.

Other top Republicans were threatening to block Mr. Trump’s nominee for deputy attorney general if the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not provide evidence related to the possible wiretapping.


  • Following a week that saw both former President Barack Obama get accused of a "Watergate-like" scandal and Republicans introduce their Obamacare replacement plan, President Donald Trump's approval rating has returned to the depths of sub-50 percent.

    According to the latest Gallup daily tracking poll, only 45 percent of Americans approve of the president's current job in office, his lowest rating in over a month.

    Trump's number aren't just low according to Gallup. The Rasmussen Presidential Tracking Poll, which tends lean more right-wing, now shows the president at his lowest point since taking office with a current approval rating of 48 percent.

    To put that in perspective, on January 26th Rasmussen showed Trump with a 59 percent approval. That's a 11 point drop in just over one month.
