TOM COTTON POURS COLD WATER ON TRUMP’S LATEST CONSPIRACY, “I WOULD PREFER TO DEAL WITH FACTS”

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.

“I’ve seen no evidence of the allegations we’ve seen in the media. Whether that’s a potential application or denial of the application, or a submission of the application or surveillance,” Cotton said on “Fox News Sunday.” “It doesn’t mean that none of these things have happened, just means I haven’t seen them yet. I would not want to speculate about media reports based on anonymous sources.

“I would prefer to deal with facts,” said the first-term Republican, a member of the Select Committee on Intelligence.

Host Chris Wallace asked Cotton whether the committee will also investigate whether the “Obama administration abused its executive role,” an allegation from the Trump administration.
