(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday that President Donald Trump’s allegations that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower is not as “outlandish as the press suggests.”
“I will point out, this is not necessarily as outlandish as everyone in the press suggests. We do know that the Obama administration targeted their political enemies. We do know that the IRS, for example, targeted citizens groups who spoke out in defense of the Constitution, who spoke out against Obama, and so the notion is not necessarily outlandish, but it is serious. So it needs to be based on facts,” Cruz said.
Cruz said that Congress should see the evidence behind the president’s allegations.
He noted that that there were reportedly “two FISA applications for some sort of surveillance or wiretaps” and that one was turned down by the FISA court, “one of which was granted.”
