McCain: We Shouldn't Probe Trump Wiretap Claim Unless There's 'A Basis'

By CAITLIN MACNEAL Published MARCH 7, 2017, 6:59 AM EDT

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) told reporters on Monday evening that Congress should not launch a probe into President Donald Trump's unsubstantiated claim that President Obama wiretapped his campaign unless there's reason to believe that the accusation may be true.

"If there’s no basis for it, then there’s no reason for an investigation,” McCain told reporters, referring to a Congressional probe into the claim, according to Roll Call.

McCain said that Trump is obligated to tell the American people why he made the claim.
