Senator Ben Sasse Issues Strong Statement Regarding Wiretapping Claims

(Before It's News)

U.S. Senator from Nebraska, Ben Sasse, released a statement Saturday afternoon regarding President Trump’s claims that former President Obama had his phones wiretapped during the contentious 2016 election cycle.

Thankfully, we have a few level-headed politicians like Sasse. Instead of focusing on partisanship, he is asking for proof and further investigation, if warranted.

Claims are one thing, but we need to deal in actual proof. If the president of the United State is to offer up the idea that wiretapping did occur, he should be ready with evidence to back it up. Otherwise, it looks like an attempt to distract from something else.

Politicians in D.C. should take note and model themselves after Ben Sasse.

“We are in the midst of a civilization-warping crisis of public trust, and the President’s allegations today demand the thorough and dispassionate attention of serious patriots. A quest for the full truth, rather than knee-jerk partisanship, must be our guide if we are going to rebuild civic trust and health.”

Wiretapping is a serious claim. If it occurred, it needs to be dealt with, regardless of political party. If not, alleging such things should result in swift rebuke.
