After President Trump publicly outed Barack Obama under the very serious claim of wiretapping him, Trump continued to push the issue. And why wouldn’t he right? If the Obama administration did this, it would bring Obama and his entire administration to justice for their crimes. But what we need now is a lawmaker that will actually look at all the evidence, from every angle, and deliver an outcome that will be truthful. If only there was someone to take on the job. Oh wait! There is! Enter Jason Chaffetz. Chaffetz famously took on Hillary Clinton during her email scandal and now he’s vowed to get to the bottom of these wiretapping claims.
Obama is officially DONE.
He told Fox News that “the Obama administration’s been notorious on this type of stuff. And we’re going to look hard at it.” Chaffetz noted that he hasn’t seen any evidence yet that would support Trump’s claim, but he also hasn’t ruled anything out.
“I learned a long time ago, I’m going to keep my eyes wide open,” he said on CBS This Morning. “You never know when you turn a corner what you may or may not see. But thus far I have not seen anything directly that would support what the president has said.”
“Look, it’s a very serious allegation. The president has at his fingertips tens of billions of dollars in intelligence apparatus,” he said. “I’ve got to believe — I think he might have something there.”
Chaffetz also noted that Obama is famous for this slimy, backdoor behavior. Chaffetz noted the Obama administration is “notorious” for secretive behavior. He recalled some of the scandals that happened under Obama’s watch, most notably the IRS’s targeting of conservatives for their political beliefs and the Department of Justice’s surveillance of Fox News reporter James Rosen. “I think it’s premature to say there’s no backing evidence,” Chaffetz concluded. Here we go folks! This could spell the end of all Obama administration…well anything. If this turns out to be true, Obama and anyone that worked for him would be under criminal investigation moving forward. Mr. Chaffetz, let’s get to work.
