Here is an exchange between an Ohio news outlet and Vice President Mike Pence about Donald Trump’s claim that Barack Obama wiretapped his campaign:
John Kosich, WEWS: The President has alleged that the former President committed a felony in wiretapping Trump Tower. Yes or no — do you believe that President Obama did that?
Mike Pence: Well, what I can say is that the President and our administration are very confident that the congressional committees in the House and Senate that are examining issues surrounding the last election, the run-up to the last election, will do that in a thorough and equitable way.
They’ll look at those issues, they’ll look at other issues that have been raised. But rest assured, our focus is right where the American people are focused, and that’s on bringing more jobs here to Ohio, creating a better healthcare system built on consumer choice.
Mr. Vice-President, you are dodging the question. Please tell the truth. You claim to be a man of Christian faith. Where is your integrity? It has apparently been sacrificed on the altar of political power.
Will you stand by and let this foolish investigation go forward at the expense of the American taxpayer?
You also said that your administration will speak the truth to the American people. How can you stand by a POTUS who is so blatantly lying to us about this?
