Speaking out against President Donald Trump once again, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) took to the airwaves on Sunday with CNN, to air his concerns about Trump’s wiretapping claims.
Sounding more like an Obama surrogate than a GOP supporter of Trump, McCain made it clear that he doesn’t support Trump’s allegations that former President Obama wiretapped the Trump campaign during the election.
In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, McCain said:
“President Trump has to provide the American people, not just the intelligence community, but the American people, with evidence that his predecessor, former President of the Unites States, was guilty of breaking the law.”
McCain also stated through a chuckle when question by Tapper about the wiretapping, that he “has no reason to believe the charge is true but that Trump could offer proof if he wanted to by calling the director of National Intelligence and the CIA director for the information.
McCain said Trump had two choices, “retract” the allegation or “provide the information” that substantiates his claim.
When asked by Tapper if McCain had concerns about the “constant barrage of conspiracy theories we keep hearing from the President,” McCain hesitated and them remarked that Trump has a “unique style” before further indicating his concerns about accusing a former president of “doing something illegal.”
McCain did not state why he believed it was up to Trump to prove whether a crime had been committed.
