Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said in a statement that the committee "will make inquiries into whether the government was conducting surveillance activities on any political party's campaign officials or surrogates."It has taken revelation after revelation about Trump's Russian links for Nunes to even grudgingly admit that maybe there should be some sort of inquiry. But let Donald the Unhinged let fly with a middle-of-the-night Tweet-storm based on zero fucking evidence and Nunes turns into a lapdog, eager to lap at Trump's tiny hands and do his bidding. However, not all of the Republicans in the Congress are jumping to Trumpelthinskin's Tweets:
Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton said Sunday that he has not seen evidence that the Obama administration wiretapped Donald Trump or Trump Tower during the campaign.Trump is playing with fire. If there was a FISA wiretap on his associates, that means that there was probably cause to suggest that they were/are Russian assets. A more adroit politician would have worked with his allies in Congress to ensure that such evidence never saw the light of day, or at least not until the middle of the century.
But now that Trump has opened the door to that, it's going to come out. It's going to come out that the spooks knew that influential people in the Trump campaign, if not his administration, were and are spying for Russia. It may come out that Trump knew, or had reason to know, that his campaign was infested with Russian spies.
This could end very badly for him. And by "very badly", I would suggest that impeachment may be the least of his worries.
