Heavyweight Republican Senator John McCain demands of President Donald Trump to prove his claim that his phone was tapped by Barack Obama during last year's campaign -- or else retract the unsubstantiated allegation. This was reported by AFP.
"The president has one of two choices, either retract, or to provide the information that the American people deserve," McCain said.
"I have no reason to believe this is true, but I also believe that the president of the United States could clear this up in a minute," he added.
"All he has to do is pick up the phone, call the director of the CIA, the director of national intelligence and say, 'OK, what happened?' Because they certainly should know whether the former president of the United States was wiretapping Trump Tower."
Earlier Obama denied Trump's accusations of tapping his phone. The rule of Obama administration was a complete non-interference in the work of the Ministry of Justice.
