Senator Marco Rubio told CNN Sunday that whether or not President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated assertions that President Barack Obama wiretapped his phones at Trump Tower during the presidential election are true will become clear “very quickly.” In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper, the Florida Republican said he doesn’t know where Trump’s claim comes from.
“But I imagine we’re going to learn more about it here over the next few days, one way or the other,” Rubio said. “I’m not sure what it is he is talking about. Perhaps the President has information that is not yet available to us or to the public. And if it’s true, obviously we’re going to find out very quickly. And if it isn’t, then obviously he’ll have to explain what he meant by it.”
