Trump's Accusations of Wiretapping Still Unproven

It is no secret that President Donald Trump feels like former President Barack Obama had his phone calls tapped during the election. According to CBS News, Trump wants to take a public stand with the FBI director on his side, but he is causing problems instead.

Trump himself has the power to classify or declassify any information that may confirm his charge. Legal scholar Jonathan Turley said, “An FBI director cannot stand in this type of conflict with a president for very long.”

According to WCTV, President Trump asked Congress about the alleged wiretapping. On Monday, March 6, 2017, Senator John McCain joined lawmakers who said that the charges are serious.

To be on the safe side, President Trump should release any evidence that he has to the public.
