Sen. Tom Cotton Responds to Wiretapping Accusations

WASHINGTON D.C--The White House has new defiance as President Trump and his top aides "insist" then-President Obama ordered wiretapping of Trump Tower, despite "zero" evidence.

Arkansas St. Sen. Tom Cotton said FBI Director, James Comey's statement on Monday would address what he calls "unsubstantiated claims" of Russian collusion in the 2016 Election. Sen. Cotton spoke on the show "State of the Union" Sunday morning being very vocal about his opinion.

Sen. Tom Cotton says, "Like the House Committee, the Senate Intelligence Committee will review this specific claim. But I do think it's important that we look at the broader context here. As you said, House Committee hearing tomorrow is going to be in part about the unsubstantiated allegations in the media and by some Democrats of some collusion between Trump associates and Russian intelligence. And we have two high ranking Obama intelligence officers who have disputed that claim."

The testimony by US Intelligence officials is also expected to include an analysis of Trump's claim without evidence that Former President Barack Obama wiretapped his phones at Trump Tower.

Cotton, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee has denied the unfounded allegations saying he has not seen any evidence to back it up.
