Deputy Press Secretary of White House Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended President Donald Trump on Sunday when Trump accused former President Barrack Obama of wiretapping him. Donald Trump asserts that Obama ordered to tap his phone.
Sanders appeared in the ABC news and Martha Raddtz was taking her interview. Raddatz pointed the accusation made by Donald Trump towards former president and “Trump has called it a fact” but Sarah couldn’t give any evidence.
“The New York Times, the BBC have also talked about and reported on the potential of this having had happened,” Sanders said. “All we’re saying is let’s take a closer look. Let’s look into this. If this happened, if this is accurate, this is the biggest overreach.”
“If, if, if, if, if!” Raddatz exclaimed. “Why is the president saying it did happen?”
“I think he is going off information he’s seen that has led him to believe that this is a very real potential,” Sanders insisted. “The American people have a right to know if this took place.”
“The president believes it is true?” Raddatz pressed after again explaining that Trump had called the wiretapping claim a “fact.”
“His tweet speaks for itself,” Sanders demurred. “He’s talking about, could this have happened?”
“He’s saying — once again, he said it did happen,” Raddatz repeated.
“All we’re asking is we get the same level of look into the Obama administration and the potential that they had for a complete abuse of power that they’ve been claiming that we’ve done over the last six months,” Sanders opined. “And time and time again, there’s no evidence or wrongdoing. The FBI says this is B.S. Yes, you guys continue to hammer and hammer of some false idea and false narrative that there’s something there when, frankly, there just isn’t.”
“I just want to say, Donald Trump started this on Saturday morning,” the ABC host quipped.
