Harold Ford Jr: a ‘Reasonable’ Person Would Send People out to Either Show Evidence or ‘Retract’ Wiretap Claim
FORD JR.: "All of this feeds into Jon’s point and Walter’s point, the fact that you would question or not want CBO scoring of a health bill because you think that their numbers may not be accurate. It all feeds into it. If you have your senior adviser suggesting that the president orders for your television sets and your smartphones to tap you and to listen to you for the benefit of a political benefit for the president, not provide evidence, you have leading Republican senators saying, 'If you can’t prove it, retract it, Mr. President.' One would think a reasonable person would send people out to either put forth the evidence or begin to retract it. Kellyanne Conway took it to a whole new level on some network she was on."
