Bennet Questions Unsubstantiated Claims

President Trump Should Stop Attempts to Distract from Real Threat of Russian Interference

Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today released the following statement after President Trump on Twitter accused former President Obama of wiretapping his phones during the 2016 election.

"The White House has offered no clear evidence or facts to support this claim," Bennet said. "The President should stop these absurd attempts to distract from the real oversight needed on Russian interference.

"The President's repeated practice of making bizarre and unsubstantiated statements undermines the truth and tarnishes the integrity of our democratic institutions. It is patently clear that an independent special prosecutor is needed to fully investigate Trump Administration and campaign connections to Russia and Russian interference so the American people can learn the truth and regain confidence in our democracy."
