The Democrats have no proof to support their claims that President Trump conspired with the Russians, so they want the Trump administration to manufacture evidence.
Several Democrats on the House Judiciary committee will write to White House counsel Don McGahn on Monday, asking him to release information detailing any “improper contacts” between Trump staffers and the FBI.
The Trump administration has repeatedly denied these unsubstantiated partisan attacks.
Citing an anonymous source in a New York Times article, House Democrats allege that White House chief of staff Reince Priebus had asked FBI Director James Comey to deny reports that Trump’s campaign advisers had been in contact with the Russian government during the election.
“We write to express our concern regarding reports of improper contacts between your office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, concerning the FBI’s ongoing review of efforts by the Russian government to unlawfully influence the U.S. presidential election in favor of Mr. Trump,” a draft of the letter reads, according to Fox News.
The letter is a passive-aggressive reaction to distract attention from President Trump’s bombshell claims that former President Obama had spied on him before he took office.
Democrats have been in defense mode ever since Trump tweeted that Obama had wiretapped Trump Towers in the months preceding the election. Obama denied the accusations in a carefully worded statement that left plenty of wiggle room: “Neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen.”
Newsmax founder Christopher Ruddy said he spoke with President Trump over the weekend, and the president insisted he will be proven right:
“I spoke with the President twice yesterday about the wiretap story. I haven’t seen him this p*ssed off in a long time. When I mentioned Obama ‘denials’ about the wiretaps, he shot back: ‘This will be investigated, it will all come out. I will be proven right.’ ”

Twitter noted that hypocritical Dems offered no evidence to support their baseless accusations, but demand that President Trump prove his allegations.
Why are libs demanding evidence that Obama spied on Trump?
Unnamed sources & baseless claims were enough to satisfy their Russia hysteria.
