Jake Tapper: ‘That Would be Fake News’ if We Said Trump Had Evidence to Back Up Wiretap Claim

At the beginning of CNN’s The Lead today, host Jake Tapper tweaked the White House and President Donald Trump, by using one of the president’s favorite attack lines, over Trump’s unproven allegations that former President Barack Obama tapped his phones prior to the election.

“President Trump tweeting another conspiracy theory that President Obama tapped his phones,” Tapper stated. “And if we told you that his White House has since produced the evidence to back up that wild claim, well, that would be fake news.”

In the aftermath of Trump’s weekend tweetstorm accusing Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower, the White House provided a short statement saying they were asking Congress to investigate possible abuse of power by the previous administration, but have provided no proof to back up Trump’s comments. (And the claim likely comes from a Breitbart article on a Mark Levin radio segment.)

Meanwhile, FBI director James Comey is reportedly “incredulous” over Trump’s remarks and has apparently asked the Department of Justice to refute the president.

‘This is untethered to facts’: Jake Tapper issues brutal takedown of Trump’s ‘nonsense’ wiretap claim

Jake Tapper on Monday issued a brutal take-down of Donald Trump’s latest conspiracy theory, that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign, lambasting those around the president who are “enabling” his “nonsense” claims.

“Where did the president get this latest conspiracy from?” Tapper asked, tracing it back to right-wing radio host Mark Levin’s suggestion that Obama and his allies mounted a “silent coup” against then-candidate Trump. That notion made its way through conservative outlets, including Breitbart, before landing on the president’s Twitter feed.

Tapper explained that “rather amazing detail” of Trump’s latest claim is that none of the conservative outlets “reported as fact what President Trump is claiming.”

“It would be back enough if the president valued conjecture and accusations of these sources more than the facts that he has access to,” Tapper said. “ … But it’s actually worse than that.”

Trump, he explained, took separate pieces of information and “made them even less tethered to fact.”

“He took it one step forward and said [wiretapping] happened and President Obama was behind it,” Tapper said. The CNN host argued while there are “legitimate reasons” to question leaks and motivations behind them, Trump decided to push an unsubstantiated conspiracy theory about his predecessor.

“Keep in mind one not-irrelevant detail here for anyone trying to make sense of it all,” Tapper continued. “We’ve been here before, and this is not a land with much sense, or respect for facts. This is a place of conspiracy theories untethered to facts.”

Tapper then listed off numerous other false theories propelled by Trump, from birthirism, to Muslim celebrations on 9/11, to Ted Cruz’s father having something to do with John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

“It goes on and on,” Tapper said, “None of it’s true. And the people around President Trump who are enabling this nonsense, the ones who know better, you have to ask yourselves this question: ate you really serving the president? are you really serving the American people?”

Tapper is an idiot. The FBI Director said that Hillary Clinton didn't exhibit the required 'men's rea' to warrant a prosecution. FALSE, she obviously had the required intent. President Trump was subject to 'wire tapping' and confirmed by Chairman of the Intelligence Committee Rep Nunes. The ranking Democrat from California, Rep Shiff, is another one-eyed idiot.

Tapper is all about pushing the Democrat regime's agenda. He doesn't give one shite about what matters.
Try Charles Krauthammer's book, Things That Matter for some reality and truth, something CNN and the others do not want to face.
TRUMP: The Great American President. Democrats: The worst thing that's happened to America, unless we're fortunate enough to use the obvious evil of it to turn the ship around. Get with it and do something decent for America.

Jake Tapper and CNN can NOT be trusted! They have proven themselves to be more interested in their own agenda, than with truth and FACTUAL REPORTING.

Greg,

People should accept that he is not going to be anything like the typical President....especially when it comes to communicating. He has done no more lying than Obama did with "you can keep your doctor, plan blah blah but no outrage at all about that. No one called him a liar and he said those things repeatedly at multiple appearances. Now, the same people who said nothing about those lies make it immoral when Trump floats a crazy tweet to sidetrack and mess with those critics. The voters who support Trump know his game and frankly don't care about his flippant comments because they hurt no more than the serious sounding comment that also turns out to be false by the so-called "Presidential" types. I don't care that he makes crazy and nutty comments to the press .....they deserve it. I don't care that he messes with the European leaders....they deserve it too. Trumps been in office for two months but all this resistance was so predictable from the beginning and it will be a battle for him in everything he tries but I bet he doesn't care about that, either. He's been in the commercial construction business for 40 years and chaos is normal for his world.

tapper thinks it has something to do with 'THROWING PEACHES"?

So Obama had surveillance on most of Europe's leader but never bothered going after the biggest thorn being Trump. I highly doubt the media's narrative and something will eventually come out. The NSA leaks are showing the many tools they have and Obama definitely had motive.

Jake Tapper, you keep making false Trump/Russian collusion conspiracy theories. You have no evidence, but yet continue making false claims while Clapper already said there is no evidence of collusion back in March 2.
