Letting The Wiretapping Claims Fade Away Wont Be So Easy

(Before It's News)

If President Trump wants to keep making allusions to his wiretapping claims, as he did with German Chancellor Angela Merkel last week, that’s fine, but at some point, he’s going to have to back it up with evidence.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham is not just letting it go.

Good for him.

“We owe it to [Trump]; we owe it to the American people to find out what happened in the 2016 election,” Graham said in an interview with John Catsimatidis that aired Sunday on New York’s AM 970.

“If there was a warrant issued to surveil the Trump campaign, I want to know about it. That would be disturbing because you’d have to have probable cause to get one. If there is no surveillance of the Trump campaign by the FBI or any other group, I think the American people need to know that,” he added.

And he’s right.

There’s no disinfectant like sunlight, and if our former president was engaged in such destructive, covert activities against who, at the time, was a private citizen, then what else was he doing and getting away with? Who else was involved?

The American people have the right to know.

On the other hand, if our current president is popping up in the middle of the night to make baseless accusations, we need to know why.

Graham also went after WikiLeaks, and at Russia, for potentially attempting to influence the 2016 election.

 “WikiLeaks is a Russian front … I want Russia to pay a price. As Republicans we should be very upset that a foreign power would try to interfere in our election,” the lawmaker said.

“I want to punish the hell out of Russia for trying to interfere in our election,” he added.

How much of the results of the 2016 election were due to Russian interference is up for debate. I don’t think there’s much doubt that the dump of Democratic National Committee emails really got a lot of Bernie Sanders supporters upset with the Clinton clan.

Was it enough to get them to either stay home or vote for Trump? I don’t know that there have been any polls done on that, but I suppose it’s possible.

Regardless, we shouldn’t be getting comfortable with Russia or any other foreign power working to guide us off into a kakistocracy.

    Investigate Lindsey Graham along with McCain, Obama, Hillary, and Israel for supporting, arming, and funding terrorists from day 1….. Treason, Treason, Treason…… Why did they support ISIS? Greater Israel and to start WW3.

    Why is Russia the Boogey Man? They stopped ISIS. Deep State options for starting WW3:

    !. Still occupied South Korea being prodded into another war with the North
    2. Illegal government in Ukraine pushing to force Russia to help the Rebels.
    3. Israel shooting missiles into Russian ally Syria after supporting ISIS for the past years
    4. NATO terrorists stationed all along western Russian border with troops and weapons.
    5. Fake election hacking preventing psychopath Hillary from being elected.
