Willie Geist: Trump’s Wiretapping Claims a ‘Waste of Time for the Country’

‘The fact this has occupied so much time and space looking into an allegation that patently is untrue if you ask anybody who knows, is a waste of time for the country’

EXCERPT:

GEIST: "All of these congressmen and all these senators who are being asked, they know because it’s an easy phone call to make, it's an easy answer to get. Now they are going to go through all these formalities to get an official answer and they'll wait for the official process to play out. But the fact that we've now had to spend one week almost, it was last Saturday morning that Donald Trump tweeted this, this is a waste of time for the country. We should be focused on important things. We should be getting into the health care bill which we have done. But the fact that this has occupied so much time and space looking into an allegation that patently is untrue if you ask anybody who knows, is a waste of time for the country."
