White House press flack Sean Spicer says Donald Trump is “confident” that Justice Department officials will prove what the president has asserted.
Which is that former President Barack Obama committed a crime by ordering a wiretap on Trump’s campaign offices in New York City.
The president made that scurrilous allegation in a tweet several days ago. He hasn’t produced a scintilla of evidence to back it up. DOJ is now looking for proof. Spicer says Justice will find it.
Here’s my question: If the president had the proof when he fired off that tweet, why didn’t he produce it at the time he made the accusation?
Let me think. Oh, I know! That’s because he didn’t have it! He doesn’t have it now! The Justice Department won’t find it, either.
This is yet another game of verbal gymnastics that Trump’s spokesman is playing with the media that Trump despises.
If the president had the goods he should have produced them long before now.
