Anderson Cooper on Wiretapping: ‘Tonight We Know the President Has No Facts’
COOPER: "Tonight, we know the President of the United States has no facts. No facts to back up his startling allegation that the former president of the United States, President Obama, wiretapped him in Trump Tower during the campaign. 'Keeping Them Honest,' we know this tonight because bipartisan members of the Senate Intelligence Committee say they’ve seen no evidence that President Obama ordered Donald Trump’s phones tapped during the campaign. We know this because House Speaker Paul Ryan also says he’s seen no evidence. Now, remember, the President asked Congress to investigate and the House and Senate Intelligence Committees have been doing just that for the last dozen days. We know the President has no facts to back up his early morning Saturday tweet storm because in today’s White House briefing, Press Secretary Sean Spicer read a long list of media reports that he seemed to believe back up the President’s claims. Media reports! Sean Hannity, Judge Napolitano, Heat Street, 'The New York Times,' the very paper the President of the United States has consistently referred to as failing and fake."
