(Before It's News)

Our so-called president still insists he’s about to prove the Obama administration “wiretapped” Trump Tower during the presidential campaign. He says this proof is coming “very soon.”

But he may be too late to convince anyone except his cultish followers on the right, because even Republicans are officially fed up with his nonsensical conspiracy theory.

WASHINGTON — In a striking repudiation, Republicans on Wednesday threatened subpoenas and vented openly about the lack of evidence behind President Trump’s tweet that President Barack Obama had wiretapped his phones in Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign.

The Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Devin Nunes of California, told reporters on Capitol Hill that “I don’t think there was an actual tap of Trump Tower” and that Mr. Trump, if taken literally, is simply “wrong.”

Jeff Sessions, the attorney general, said he had provided no information to Mr. Trump that might have formed the basis for the president’s claim.

And it’s not only the House Intelligence Committee. Today the Senate Intelligence Committee also confirmed that there’s absolutely no evidence Trump Tower was “wiretapped.”
